Season Three of the amazing family-drama Brothers and Sisters manages to drop on the quality of programming seen in it's first two seasons; but it certainly remains one of the finest programmes on television and this box set makes for excellent viewing.

It remains to be excellent viewing- the plotlines in this season are as complex and twisting as in the show's first two seasons, and the humour is mixed perfectly with the heartache as the show manages to bring viewings from tears to laughter in every episode, and the chaos of the Walker family keeps me coming back for more and more- I never tire of this programme, and although I didn't love it as much as Seasons One and Two; I still did love it!

I think this seasons big disappointment; or the key item which lets it down, is the character Robert, who is beyond amazing in the debut seasons- strong, powerful, warm, loving and funny- this season he becomes cold and distant, which detracts from the enjoyment of this season- although this character development is essential to the plotlines of this- and future seasons.

Away from Robert, the relationships and characters are as great as ever- in particular Kevin and Scotty are truly wonderful viewing, and Justin and Rebecca become firm favourites as the most adorable couple on television. The relationship between Nora and Holly remains excellently executed, and whilst Sarah's storyline is not central to the development of the season, the character develops strongly during this season and becomes more and more wonderful throughout and remains to be a firm favourite of mine. Whilst I'm not a big fan of the character, Balthazar Getty does a fantastic job playing Tommy this season, and it's his story which drives this season from start to finish.

I am really enjoying this season but I am on disc 5 and it has stopped working! The second disc falls out of the case as it broke the day I got it. This disc clearly has scratches and is at a dramatic time of the series!! Not impressed Amazon!

CONTAINS SPOILERS When I watched Series Two of Brothers & Sisters I felt that I would have loved to have grown up in a family like this, a loud, loving and close clan. However in this series the family dynamic just felt stifling. Nora's five grown-up children appear dutifully at her many dinners. Tommy, a big strapping man, disappears off to Mexico and Nora has to trail after him, it is a little pathetic. Then the rest of the family follow as if they have nothing else to do and Tommy were a missing toddler. Robert even turns up in a helicopter. I also felt that some of the plot lines were so predictable that I could see what was coming a mile off. Take Kitty for example, on her very first visit to the play-park she bumps into a hunky single father - what could possible happen? I don't understand why a wealthy Senator's wife is walking around in a zombie-like state, that's what the rest of us do when we've just had babies but a woman like Kitty would have a housekeeper a least. Also Alec, the hunk in question, seems to be permanently at the park. When Robert wants a confrontation he goes to the park and hey presto there is Alec, when Kitty wants a chat there he is again. His poor child must be bored of spending all day every day in the same place.
At the end of Series Two we discoved that William Walker had a son called Ryan. Nora thinks nothing of knocking on Ryan's father's door to tell him that his dead wife was unfaithful. She does this out of kindness! Of course in the blink of an eye Ryan is living with Nora and a shareholder in the family business. Luke Grimes who plays Ryan is a dead ringer for Robert Pattinson. The cast of this show are all great looking, especially the men.

More misadventures of the seriously messed up Walker family: control freak matriarch Nora and her clingy offspring. Guaranteed: any news (especially secrets told in the strictest confidence) will be passed on at the speed of light (their phone bills astronomical); lasting relationships with non-Walkers have barely a chance; any gathering Nora insists they all attend will degenerate into revelations, recriminations, slanging matches; soaring schmaltzy music will accompany eventual reconciliations.

Season 3 is full of the usual break ups and make ups, as the family's fruit business struggles to survive. Dead father's mistress Holly is now a cuckoo in the nest, virtually taking over. (Although regarded by Walkers as little short of The Wicked Witch of the West, Holly as played by Patricia Wettig has much going for her and is one of my favourite characters.) Also around is Ryan, recently discovered dead father's love child (not by Holly) - was I the only one suddenly thinking of "Twilight"? Most dramatic of all, out of the blue, is a very real scare....

It is all great fun - not least the sight of Nora engrossed in a book, "The Art of Letting Go". As if! Millions watch, grateful their own families are nothing like this lot. Others watch, apparently delighted to recognize aspects of their own families, mothers in particular. (Now that IS disturbing.)

Whatever the reason to view, here is another guarantee: there will be a rush for Season 4 the moment it comes out.
