He’s my son

He’s my son. I can’t give up hope.
~Sally Field as Norah Walker on Brothers & Sisters

Someone I know said almost those very words to me last year.

I love this show and have been watching entire seasons on DVD. Yes, a convoluted plot at times. Yes, I’m sick of Kitty and all the drama at times. But it’s TV. I can’t stop watching.

Programs about big, squabbling, but devoted, families are almost always successful. I think that’s because they play to the universal desire to have a place for a safe landing. Somewhere we’re accepted no matter what.

No matter what.

People with that kind of family are lucky. It’s a powerful thing.

    I love Brothers and Sisters, and having a gay brother in my mix, it is interesting to see how they relate…Kitty is getting on my nerves too, there is some great acting on that show, but she is not one of them!
