Many of you might think that's a bad thing; the two people I watched the show with last night were retching at the saccharine contrivance, but personally, I think Sarah's a lot more tolerable when she has something nice in her life, and it appears Luc has a career going now, so at the very least she can't hate him for being too perfect a househusband this time around. Plus, I love the way Luc forces all the Walkers to dance with him constantly. It may be ridiculous, but so is 90 percent of what's enjoyable about this show. Now if only we could get Nora something or someone that fulfills her (other than catering to her grown children's every need), we'd have a much less grating family.
But, as usual with Brothers & Sisters, whenever they take two steps forward, they also have to take several steps back. Kitty's park lover from last season returned with a bad haircut and is very interested in her welfare, and I can't think of any other reason to pluck him out of thin air than for him to be her next love interest when Rob Lowe leaves the show in a couple months. Not to mention the fact that Kitty's campaign and spontaneous desire to seek public office is completely stupid, hollow and boring. (This isn't a political show and it never has been. They don't do politics well and they should stop trying.) And we're still going to have to deal with Dennis York and more Ojai business drama in the future, which, I will say again, has never been a very interesting part of the show. And as if those two things weren't irritating enough, Ryan's still alive somewhere. Oh, the humanity.
Luckily this show has trained me to focus on the fleeting good moments whenever they come. Like this one:
Please tell me I'm not the only one in the world who doesn't hate Luc and Sarah.
