On May 13, 2011, ABC announced the series of Brothers & Sisters had been canceled after five seasons. See more »


In the final season, there is a story line about Sarah's biological father and blood types. Both William Walker and Nick Brody have type B blood, and it was revealed in a previous season that Nora has type O blood. Sarah's blood type is said to be AB, but this is impossible. For a child to have type AB blood, there must be some combination of A and B. Either one parent is A and the other is B, or one parent is AB and the other has any other type. If Nora has O and both fathers have B, Sarah must have either type O or B blood. See more »

Interesting newcomer to the Fall Lineup
25 September 2006 | by Mumofalmost3See all my reviews

I have finished watching the first episode and thought I would like to leave a slightly more favourable review than the previous poster. I like to give a show more of a chance to pique my interest than 5 minutes so I sat and watched the entire episode. There were the usual introductions to new characters... since it's a rather large ensemble depicting a family of adult children and two older parents there wasn't much room for in depth intros but it was adequate for a premiere episode.

The end of the show set the stage for the series. I will give it more time to develop. The family is centred around older parents and their children - 2 daughters (casting Calista Flockhart, 42, as the younger of the two sisters and much younger looking 38 year old Rachel Griffiths, 38, as the older sister was a little odd) and 3 brothers (one, seemingly, an Afghanistan war veteran, one a lawyer who does happen to be gay and the last a brother who is working at the family business). Something odd is afoot at the family business both on the financial side and the emotional side.

The demise of the patriarch (what a shame) at the end of the premiere episode will set the tone with, I believe, the sister from NYC (Flockhart) moving back to CA to start a new job on television and mending bridges with her mother and family.
