Did You Know?


Unusually for a show that turned out to be a critical and commercial hit, in the weeks before the first episode aired, this show went through several cast and crew changes. The Walker family matriarch, Iva, played by Betty Buckley in the original pilot, was re-cast with Sally Field, and renamed Nora. Walker brother Bryan, played by Jonathan LaPaglia, was re-cast with Matthew Rhys, renamed Kevin, and given a new backstory (instead of Bryan being an ex-husband and father, who was newly out of the closet, Kevin was a never-married lawyer, who was more comfortable with his homosexuality). Marti Noxon was replaced as the showrunner by Greg Berlanti, because of creative differences. See more »

A Fantastic Show
23 October 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When Brothers & Sisters was about to premiere, I was eagerly anticipating it, though I had my doubts I was going to stick with it in the long term. However, that's totally not the case. This show shines as a crown jewel in this years television season.

The cast is wonderful and they all contribute such an amazing talent to making us feel as though the Walker's are truly brothers and sisters. The interactions between Kitty and Nora are always great to see, as are any scenes that Sally Field and Rachel Griffith's are in. They bring an amazing emotional depth to the story that definitely adds to the great writing that is turned out by the amazing writing staff.

Overall, this series has earned it's keep. I think I may have teared up once per episode so far. The family acts very much like a family through it's ups and downs, and it truly is moving. If you're looking for a new show that entertains you, moves you and brings you top notch acting, then Brothers & Sisters is definitely a show that you should be tuning into. You won't be disappointed.
