Like I’ve said before, we don’t have cable in our home. We mainly watch DVDs or TV online. I had not heard anything about “Brothers and Sisters” before and thought it sounded like a good show since it stars Sally Field and had a wholesome sounding title – “Brothers and Sisters.” Unfortunately, I had no idea of what was to come. One of the brothers was gay, which doesn’t bother me as much as the fact that he made out with his husband on screen – more than once. There was so much of it that I couldn’t finish watching the program and wouldn’t watch it again. However, I do know that there are people out there who do enjoy the show, so here is the information on the new release.

“Brothers and Sisters: The Complete Third Season” was released on DVD by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on September 1st, 2009. The six-disc set includes every episode from the third season, plus exclusive cast interviews, deleted scenes, and much, much more.
