Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Season 3 of ABC's terrific ensemble drama Brothers and Sisters finds the pampered Walker family of Pasadena in fine neurotic form. Happily, the art of deep in-person conversation (and confrontation) is alive and well among the Walkers and their extended family, which continues the welcome echoes of one of its ancestor shows, thirtysomething.As it turns out, the Walkers have a lot to talk about. The sharkish Holly (a fearless and delightful Patricia Wettig) is a much bigger character this season, and that raises Brothers and Sisters' complexity level accordingly. Holly, mistress of the late William Walker (Tom Skerritt, in flashbacks), is now running the Walker family business, Ojai Foods, which results in extreme tension for Walker's widow, Nora. Sally Field continues to bring great depth and nuance to her performance as Nora--a not-so-traditional housewife facing her late husband's betrayals (and the viewer learns of more this season), yet finding that adversity really does make her stronger.

The rest of the stellar ensemble includes Rob Lowe as the uber-ambitious senator husband of Kitty, played by Calista Flockhart, who shows welcome restraint. Sarah (Rachel Griffiths) contends with her new single life by plunging into a new startup venture--and finding she's pretty darn good at it. The three Walker brothers include Kevin (Matthew Rhys), Tommy (Balthazar Getty) and recovered junkie vet Justin (Dave Annable), the last of whom is delighted to discover that the comely Rebecca (Emily VanCamp) is not actually a blood relative. Much of season 3's sexiness comes from this new, hot couple. And there's drama with Tommy, too--which will change the Walkers' lives forever. The six-disc set is what such sets should be: a bounty of great extras that the committed Brothers and Sisters fan will not want to miss. These include deleted scenes, silly bloopers, and wonderful interviews with Field and Wettig, as well as a mini-doc on a real-life food and wine company based in Ojai, Calif. The whole experience adds up to some grand sibling revelry. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

Brothers & Sisters returns for a third season following the California-based Walker family through the complicated maze of American life today. The compelling one hour drama series is about a collection of five enmeshed and somewhat damaged adult siblings and their strong but passionately devoted mother. Brothers & Sisters The Complete Third Season is the drama that every family can relate to, the truth of tfamily, they are real, warm and dysfunctional.

Bonus Features Include: Interview with Sally Field and Patricia Wettig, cast visit with a real life family winery in Ojai, California, cast and crew hijinx on location, bloopers, deleted scenes

5.0 out of 5 stars Calista Flockhart is Emmy worthy July 20, 2009
Format:DVD
The accolades might always go to Sally Field and Rachel Griffiths (both terrific).

But in the third season of the series, Calista Flockhart goes deep and gives the most nuanced performance of the year. She deserved an Emmy for this season (and they snubbed her). The third season had it's share of mistakes, but Flockhart was a joy to watch. It's so good to have her back on television.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh, my! How the mighty of fallen... August 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
***** Warning! This review contains season three spoilers***************

When Brothers & Sisters first started, I absolutely loved the show. It was one of the TV shows that I looked forward to the most every week, but starting with season two and continuing with season three I feel like the overall quality of the show has been on the steady decline. I feel that this is for the most part due to the writing which at the beginning of the series had a very organic feel to it and the writing for all of the characters for the most part remained constant.

However, by the end of season two and especially all throughout season three, the writing has become more and more contrived and more like a soap opera, especially with the retcon of Rebecca and the introduction of Ryan. Initially, when they revealed that Rebecca wasn't really a Walker after all, I was willing to give the storyline as well as the Justin and Rebecca relationship and the introduction of Ryan a chance. However, I soon found Justin and Rebecca to be one of the most frustrating couples to ever watch on a TV show. Almost all of their storylines involve extremely juvenile fights and breakups followed by hasty reunions. To make matters worse, season three ended with Justin and Rebecca getting engaged after spending most of the season fighting and breaking up every other episode.

I feel like the writers of the show have become completely detached from their audience because it's clear that they no longer care about how the majority of the viewers feel about the storylines, they're just going to tell the storylines that they want to tell even if it causes them to alienate and lose viewers in the process.

Format:DVD
"Brothers and Sisters" is a show created back in 2006 by Jon Robin Baitz (a writer who worked on "Alias" and "West Wing"). The series revolves around the Walker family, an upperclass family that owns business known as Ojai foods.

During the first season of the series, the family is rocked by the death of the father and business owner, William Walker. But even more shocking to the family is that their father had a mistress and an illegitimate daughter but that William had embezzled money from the company. So, the family focuses on the lives of the Walker family and how the brothers and sisters must move on with the family business and make sure it is not run into the ground and try to keep it afloat.

There are a total of 24 episodes in season 3 (Episodes 40-63).

VIDEO & AUDIO:

Video is featured in Widescreen (1:78:1), enhanced for 16×9 televisions. There are a lot of outdoor and indoor shots and "Brothers and Sisters" does have quite a bit of grain but nothing too distracting. But for the most part, picture quality is satisfactory.

Audio is featured in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, the show is mostly dialogue-based but there are quite a bit of music featured in the episodes, but the audio is pretty much front and center channel driven and audio is clear. There are no really need for major sound effects for "Brothers and Sisters" but for the most part, dialogue and background music are heard quite clearly. My receiver setup preference was set as "Stereo on all Channels".

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as Season Two. December 4, 2010
By Davey
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have followed Brothers & Sisters on TV from the first episode in 2006. The Walker family became my family. When they released the first season on DVD I immediately purchased it - also season two and season three. This third go-round has become slightly contrived and overly dramatic. Sally Field is still my favorite actress in the series. Most of the other actors and actresses are excellent - except the plot ideas which they're given to act out. We have a lot of bickering and then "I'm sorry" for most of the episodes. I'm hoping when I buy the fourth season of B & S the cast will get back to being at least a little bit normal. I have written several scripts for TV and realize it's tough trying to keep an audience satisfied season after season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brothers and Sisters November 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When a friend gave me Brothers and Sisters season one, I wasn't sure I wanted to see it. I felt I had had enough of Calista Flockhart. . . I am glad I saw it, because Kitty gets better and better, and I can not think of anyone better for the role of Nora -the Matriarch of the Walker family- as Sally Field. Rachel Griffiths, is incredible as Sara, the oldest of the sibilings of this colorful, yet "normal" family. After every episode I think of all the writers who put all the characters so well together. Last but not least, Rob Lowe is superb as the ex-presidential nominee. Please don't even think of giving him another heart attack. . .
keep him very healthy for the pleasure of all us women who live far away from the USA and have to rely on DVDs to see our favorite actors. Marina Mori
