My name’s Tiger and I’m an addict.
A Brothers & Sisters addict. (that the ABC show I’m talking about).
My addiction crept up on me slowly when we got the box set. I’d watched about half an hour of an episode and didn’t feel any inclination to watch another.
But then I got started on it, right from the beginning. And when you actually follow the show properly…my word, is that some addictive stuff.
It covers a really broad spectrum of human behaviour, its funny, its sad, its witty and its insanely well written. I’ll mention a few from time to time but the first big whammy that sent me reeling was this.
DRAMATIC SCENARIO 1
Sweet, devoted wife, mother of 5, happy homemaler, Nora finds out her beloved husband Bill, who was the original posterboy for great behaviour, had a mistress he kept quiet for 20 years. He’d bought the scarlet woman a house 15 minutes from his main family home. AND they had a child that he kept on the DL too. So far, so Nigerian….
But here’s the real clinch. Nora’s dear brother, Sol, who’s been a right hand man in the family business for years and years…starts dating the mistress. What? Rewind? How?
So to get us all really awake on a Monday morning…tell me, what would you do in that situation? As Nora, the brother OR the mistress? Have fun with this one!
