Trivia

Initially Patricia Kalember commuted from New York, where her family is based, to LA to film the series. However, after three seasons the traveling became too stressful. She asked to be taken out of six shows a year, so she could handle the commute better. See more »

Hope "Sisters" Will Be Released On DVD!
10 August 2006 | by AerLingusSee all my reviews

I miss "Sisters," a weekly drama on NBC. There are less and less evening dramas on nowadays. I loved all of the cast, the concept, and the writing. In addition, I particularly admired Sela Ward's acting as well actors Swoosie Kurtz and Patricia Kalembar. Other series I can compare this to are Picket Fences and Providence.

The first time I saw George Clooney was on Sisters, as he played Det. Falconer, Teddy's love (I never recognized him on "The Facts of Life"). Ashley Judd (Double Jeopardy) played Reed Halsey in the first season or two, Eric Close (Without A Trace) played Officer Billy Griffin, Paul Rudd (Object Of My Affection) played Kirby Philby, and Stephen Collins (7th Heaven) played Dr. Sorenson. So, it has been nice that Sisters was graced with the talent of so many talented actors.

Hopefully, "Sisters" will be released on DVD. If it does, I'll be one of the first to purchase this heartfelt series.
