    Interesting point.

It just seems likely that in a show set in CA of all places that they would have at least one friend/employee in a recurring role who was not white. other than a baby with no speaking part.

    Re: Brothers and Sisters

    When it comes to tv shows, I don't get caught up in if there are minority groups represented or not. To me it's more about the writing and content. I do get peeved when I see Reality shows cast a majority of one race or ethnic group over another. I love Big Brother but they do a poor job of casting more than the one token AA or gay person each season, and to extend that further, most of the cast are young and attractive, so older and average people are often ignored. I'm sure the same could be said for many other reality shows.

    If you want to see a show that does a good job of representing more than just white people, Army Wives is a good one to watch.

    I agree with the post that said this show's focus is about the brothers and sisters and the family in general. It would be nice if more groups were represented but I don't think it's necessary nor does it take away from my viewing pleasure. As mentioned, there are many shows out there with a wide mix of groups, and they can't all please everyone all of the time. Nor should they have to. That's why there is a channel changer.

    If the show was set in a more multi-cultural area, maybe I'd call foul about the lack of diversity, but it's set in a lily white section of Pasadena.

    I'm still watching, but I'm just not that excited about this season. I hope things pick up, 'cause I'm bored with the same old thing.

    Sarah's new man!

    Glad about the situation with Justin's boy genius lab partner - looks like they each brings strengths to the table & will work together well.

    Re: Brothers and Sisters

    Right on about Justin ad his lab partner...I'd fogotten that of course Justin would not be likely to be freaked by a dead body....

    Do I remember correctly that the actress who plays Sarah was pregnant (hence Sarah's European trip)? Did she have the baby? Certainly she doesn't look pregnant in the memories of Europe preview! Hard to tell while she's hugging Kitty.... Maybe they did her European stuff much earlier? They wouldn't need any of the rest of the cast around, just Sarah.

    Boy, William's ghost just will not die, will it? Constantly bringing up bad vibes. Is the guy who bought the wine and went to jail the guy we saw getting the info on their plans from the devil spawn last week?

    Yes, the actress playing Sarah was pregnant. She had the baby a while ago. And that is the same creepy Ryan slipped the paperwork to.

    I'm confused. How would Ryan even know this guy? If I remember correctly, until very recently Ryan didn't even know the Walkers existed, or that he was William's son, until Nora located him and informed him of the little that she knew --- So how could Ryan ever know anything about William's former (and assumedly secret) business transactions --- not to mention an old vendetta of a former business partner???????

    I don't think he was aware of 'why' the guy wanted the information. Not sure how he met up with him. They never really explained any of that.
