So. Freaking. Good.

What am I talking about, what I had for breakfast? No, I'm not talking about that. Though what I had for breakfast was indeed good. Pie from Marie Calendars. Delicious. No, what I'm talking about that was so freaking good was last night's Brothers & Sisters two hour movie event. SO DAMNED GOOD.

Admittedly, Kitty and Robert bore me to tears (so much so that I really kind of wanted him to bite it), and I'm glad that Tommy's going away (I never really cared for the character, even before Balthy became a big old slut. Tommy's mean to Justin. This is unacceptable!), but those moments are the ones that I tend to just zone out on. No, I focus on moments with Nora and Justin, be they separate or together. And they had good moments in both areas. Though I'm still a bit alarmed by the whole Justin/Rebecca thing (why doesn't LJ recognize Rebecca as proper spelling?) and always will be because it's just icky and wrong, I like both characters, or love in Justin's case, and I'm extremely fond of both actors. Dr. Walker sounds like an appealing idea, but realistically it would take him the rest of the series run (assuming it goes to seven) to even be an intern, I think. He didn't go to college for more than a year, maybe two, so he would have to complete that first. Plus he has an apartment and no money since he doesn't have a job. I know the GI Bill or whatever it is would help pay for school, but I don't think it would help pay for the place he lives. I like Justin living at home anyway.

I did think of something in the shower about this show that I don't like. And that's the fact that nobody has any friends on that show. They're all connected to the family, be they spouses or girlfriends/boyfriends or mistresses or siblings, there is no single character who just has a friend. It's a huge cast, so I get the reason why they're not regulars, but come on now. Rebecca had a friend last season for a little bit. And Scotty had the gay friends (Nicholas Gonzalez! Wee!), but they were one and done.

Still, Brothers & Sisters is an amazing, amazing show. More Emmys for Sally Field!!

ack! I just covered my eyes! I watched the first hour last night, then I veryyyyy reluctantly had to go to bed - I wanted to watch the second hour so bad, but I'm a sick puppy, so I will be watching it soon. Then I shall come back and read your comments!

bah, I am terribly disappointed. I was promised a death, and robert's heart stopping for a few secodns is NOT a death!

I thought justin was going to say he wanted to be an EMT, much more realistic, IMO.

It's a CLINICAL death... which... counts.

Rob Lowe can play sweaty heart attack victim like a champ, though.

Actually, I thought he was going to want to be a nurse or something, but the EMT thing makes the most sense, it really does. Maybe he'll realize that trying to be a full fledged doctor is too much and just be an EMT. I'd like that.

it so does not count! I thought they were faking us out and saul or someone was going to collapse right at the end of the episode - admit it, that would've been better! (not that I want saul dead)

At least they didn't kill Scotty. You know how much TV likes to screw the gays.

Actually, Saul could have died in that case, too.

They should kill Tommy. They're not going to kill Kitty (who is my number one pick for dead Walkers), so Tommy's at least a nice consolation prize.

eh, kitty's not SO bad (for a republican) ... I think tommy being dead would be interesting in terms of, would they still file charges, etc. etc. ...but they didn't do it. They copped out instead!

And screwed up continuity just a bit... Kevin said that there were two republicans who he could stand. Tommy's a republican, because he and Kitty have established they have the same views. William was one, too, but I'll give them leaving him out on account of him being dead.
