User Reviews

the first of the season
29 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first episode of Brothers and sisters was awesome. i strongly recommend seeing it. it had a great beginning and as well as a great ending, that left you in suspense. my favorite park was when Nora (Sally Feild) went into Holly's office (Patricia Wettig) and threw in here face that William Walker did have another child, a boy named Ryan, and that since that is true then that means Holly (Patricia Wettig) might be fired from the Walker family business.this scene left me and probably other viewers speechless. another thing i liked about this episode is that it focused more on Justin (Dave Annable) and Rebecca's (Emily VanCamp)relationship. i like the fact that the family now knows. this episode states that this season is going to be great.
