Zap2It reported today that Ugly Betty and Brothers & Sisters have been given full seasons by ABC. I just wrote about Ugly Betty and how I truly think it is one of the worst shows I’ve seen in a long time (on par with CBS’s horrible The Class) but the critics and the ratings seem to disagree with me. Brothers & Sisters on the other hand is starting to exhibit great promise. The first 2 episodes were kind of boring but the last two have been excellent. I guess Greg Berlanti has officially now taken over and his trademark ability to write about families and how they interact with each other is starting to shine through. The writing has gotten snappier, the characters have gotten sharper and Sally Field is already the front runner to win an Emmy next season. I even am getting over my dislike of Calista Flockhart. Next week’s trailer showing Treat Williams joining is just icing on the cake.
Bottom line: ABC at least got 1 out of 2 right.
