Brotherhood: Job 31:5-6

Brotherhood: Showtime(S01E08) Job 31:5-6: If I have walked in falsehood and my foot has hastened to deceit; Let God weigh me in the scales of justice; thus will he know my innocence!

Eileen tries to tough it out alone and go cold turkey. Michael heads down to Jersey on a "milk run" with his old flame, while his mother Rose drives the rest of the family nuts planning a surprise birthday dinner for him. The House of Representatives gets a new Speaker after a scandal, and the power goes straight to his head. He immediately takes $100K away from Tommy's district to push to another. That's politics, but Tommy soon works through his anger to gain some new advantage, even though he has to throw someone under the bus to do it.

This is a cakewalk for Tommy, as the new Speaker is easily -- comically easily -- duped.

On the road to Jersey, someone (his ex) finally asks Michael where he has been the past seven years, but doesn't get much of an answer, even though she discovers he's got scars to show for whatever he was up to. Things go horribly wrong on the road trip, as things involving Michael tend to do. Last week, I wondered why so much time was spent on Pete's fall off the wagon and quick climb back on. Now it makes sense, as he he witnesses what's going on with Eileen and reaches out to help her.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Premium cable channel Showtime has ordered a second season of "Brotherhood," a violent, profanity-laced drama about siblings on opposite sides of the law.

In its first season, the show was praised by critics but fared modestly with viewers. The second-season order is for 10 episodes.

"Brotherhood" marked the first Showtime series that got exposure on a broadcast network when its corporate sibling CBS aired the pilot in primetime.

This series is great. I also recently subscribed to Showtime for Brotherhood. They must do a second season. Has anyone heard anything official or unofficial?

Crafty work on Tommy's part! I'm wondering if Pete will be more than just a support for Eileen. How upsetting to the balance would that be? The mom is a nut - an in-law like that would drive me to drink too.

The series, Brotherhood, is excellent. I got Showtime just because of it. When will the second season begin?
