    I started off on board but just never kept up and eventually gave up. Unfairly I am glad it was canceled so I don't have to worry about catching up.

    Great post. I think you got it 100% right.

    I agree. I not from the region. Am familiar with the religous belief/hypocrisy and fortunately (since this has not been renewed) that kept me from watching it.

    And that's what I meant about the bad advertising. I thought the show's treatment of the characters beliefs and hypocrisy was really well done and I suspect that your familiarity, like my own, would have led you to enjoy the show. Unfortunately, the advertising played against that aspect of the show.

    Really? So you didn't watch it because it had something to do with religion? (not judging, just making sure I understand where you're coming from)

    I tried to like this show, but it was more silly than funny for me, so I deleted my SP a few weeks ago.

    Another show I'd never heard of until now.

    Not watching ads really keeps me out of the loop!

    I liked Pan Am (and actually have a few unwatched eps), but umm, Brothers & Sisters was pretty darn successful for several years in that timeslot.

    I had many hurt feelings due to that hypocrisy. I had expected better out of them because of their professed faith. I did not want those feelings to re-emerge.

    Damn.

    I'll miss Cricket & Blake. They were my favorite couple on TV this season.

    Cricket & Blake were perhaps the strongest couple on the show. I was very impressed when they revealed that Blake's "interests" weren't a secret in the relationship.

    Point taken -- and yet Brothers & Sisters isn't in that timeslot anymore, it is? So what changed?

    Believe me, I understand. I gave up on organized religion as a whole because of that. I didn't have hurt feelings; I just got fed up with it all.

    To me, they made such a mockery of it all (even the hypocrisy!) on GCB that I quite enjoyed it. :) I would have suggested watch one episode and see if it was all that bad to you. If you didn't like the taste, push away the plate!

    I stopped going to church as a teenager because of all the hypocrisy I saw with people in church, sin all week long, go to church and get forgiven. I have never believed that going to church gave people the right to be jerks all week long. I stopped going long ago.

    With that said, I have been cracking up at this show. It really poked fun at the hypocrisy and the laughs kept coming and coming. It was a hilarious show and I'm sad it's cancelled.

    I couldn't watch that one about the kids in Middle School that got a pile of Emmy's for the same reason. I tried ten minutes of it and realized that the feelings were still too raw. I think the show was in the 1980's.

    I also really cannot stand "mean girls" and that is what these women probably were.

    In high school the main character was the queen mean girl, and the other 4 women were her tormentees. The main character moved away and grew up, but when she came back the other 4 still saw her as the mean girl, and they became mean girls tormenting her. So yes, mean girls, but VERY tongue in cheek and silly.
