Brothers and Sisters, which airs on ABC Sundays at 10:00 P. M. (EST) recently released its Season 3 to DVD on September 1, 2009. Running time is 1,033 minutes.

Those of you familiar with the series already know that Brothers and Sisters was #33 prime time last year and averaged 10.6 million viewers per episode. Brothers and Sisters is great writing. I just wish that the plot content under-developed, at times, would delve deeper. I guess storyline dictated twists and turns make that hard to do though.

For those of you unfamiliar with the series, here is a little about the last year:

The upper class, pampered Walkers of Pasadena, California, five siblings and their devoted mother, live together but seldom are a big happy family. Their arguments, clashes, quarrels, and hurt feelings get in the way. Blackmail, firings, what is in a book, and adoption fears push their feelings to the limits. When life-threatening crises erupt, confrontations become emotional and volatile. Stressful situations involving Ojai Foods, money pit charity, medical emergencies, and a lost son take tolls too.

Love is put to the test. Marriage at a crossroads, a father’s indiscretion, and the truth about Ryan Lafferty’s mother –all cost. Every crafted plot is tangled, detangled, then retanged again and again. Watch carefully as Robert’s big secret is probed, Tommy’s has legal troubles, Nora meets her new half brother, and Ryan confesses what he has been hiding.

Brothers and Sisters is star power drama. It includes: ? matriarch Nora Walker (Sally Field), gay son Kevin (Matthew Rhys), daughter Kitty Walker McCalister (Calista Flockhart), eldest son Tommy (Balthazar Getty), single-mother sister Sarah (Rachel Griffiths), and drug-addicted veteran son Justin (Dave Annabelle). These roles are stellar cast.

Then there is the extended family of Rebecca (Emily VanCamp), no longer lovechild now Justin’s love; Holly (Patricia Wettig), late William’s mistress; Robert McCalister (Rob Lowe), Kitty’s political husband; Saul (Ron Rilfkin), Nora’s now out of the closet sage brother; and Scotty Wandell (Luke Macfarlane), Kevin’s life partner. What a powerhouse ensemble–articulate, inspiring, and irksome!
