What Makes the Walkers Different

By // TV

Brothers & Sisters returned to ABC tonight and I had yet another epiphany about what makes this show good. Despite what sibling squabbles and Nora’s bi-monthly breakdowns may lead you to believe, the Walkers are adults. The writers aren’t afraid to marry them off or let them recover from their afflictions or let them make smart decisions that may lead them down a slightly less dramatic path.

The Walkers, unlike 2 certain sets of doctors I know, are allowed to be the adults that they are. Their problems are about careers and children and spouses and family. They deal with staying true to themselves and trying not to fall down too often just like those other TV characters, but the Walkers do it with just the right balance of maturity and vigour.
