Preoccupied

Far too preoccupied with my dreadfully dull textbooks - and occasional breaks for Brothers and Sisters - to write anything substantial :) Despite the fact that the exams are already peeking over the window, I do still find the time to catch up with my latest obsession.

Looking for the remote
Taking a break...

Telling the tale of a Californian family that comes together after suffering a significant loss, Brothers and Sisters is an understated family drama, one of those serious slow-moving shows ( since it borrows a lot from fave shows of yesteryear such as Picket Fences and Thirtysomething ) that takes quite a while to get warmed up. Certainly not everyone's cup of tea but seriously, there are touching little vignettes on the show that simply bring back some wonderful memories. Far from being perfect paragons, the featured Walker siblings all have their own flaws, frequently sniping and squabbling - with the occasional family gossip thrown in since as we all know, the walls have ears in big families.

Hard not to remember the past when... hell, not only does Kevin carry familiar shades of myself ( definitely wealthier, better dressed but hell, we both squire our moms everywhere ) but Tommy strongly reminds me of my older brother. Serious, stolid, grouchy, grumpy, always ready to get in your face... yeah, that's my brother. :)

And did I mention the kissing men?

I like that show. I am actually watching it right now.

And I do like the gay story line they have going on.
