"The series has found its own really unique, irreverent voice and is doing consistent business for us on Sundays, so we're excited to serve up another season to the fans."

The show follows a family-run burger joint.

Brotherhood: Matthew 22:10 (season finale)

by Michael Canfield, posted Sep 24th 2006 11:35PM
Brotherhood(S01E11) Matthew 22:10: The servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found, bad and good alike, and the hall was filled with guests.

A big Irish wedding, and Freddie Cork finally makes a move, ordering a hit on pain-in-the-ass Michael (Jason Isaacs), after going back and forth every other week over whether they are friends or enemies. The first surprise is Pete, who appears at the wedding all cleaned up -- this, after the last time we saw him, snorting coke outside an AA meeting with Eileen Caffee (Annabeth Gish). Judging from the selection played at the wedding, music stopped developing around 1983. (Spoiler -- a big one -- after the jump.)

Brotherhood: Vivekachudamani :51

by Michael Canfield, posted Sep 17th 2006 11:32PM
BrotherhoodVivekachudamani :51: A father has got his sons and others to free him from his debts, but he has got none but himself to remove his bondage.

The long-lost father of the Caffee clan shows up to make his miserable family even more miserable.

Pete's still trying to help Eileen along with AA, even holding private sessions for her, since she won't go to a public one. Pete's a little too soft-hearted of late in his management of the teen street dealers for Michael's taste. After a lecture from the elder Caffee brother, Pete falls back off the wagon himself again. Hm, looks like this'll end badly for both Pete and Eileen.

Brotherhood: Ecclesiastes 7:2

Brotherhood(S01E9) Ecclesiastes 7:2: It is better to go to the house of mourning than to the house of feasting, For that is the end of every man, and the living should take it to heart.

Now that Tommy has worked his way into the second most-important position in the legislature, the Speaker orders him to get a crucial vote on passing the budget. Naturally Tommy's mob ties (by blood anyway, to brother Michael) come into play. And, just as naturally, the vote he needs this time comes from the one representative that last week called Tommy's installation as new party Whip what it was: ward politics at its worst.

This episode is frought with death and betrayal which should have made for some compelling television, but didn't work for me. The past couple episodes have been so good that I found myself expecting more. Well, we do get more, but it's just more of the same. Another dirty deal by Tommy, another attempt at reform and backslide by Eileen, another attempt (and success) by the mob characters to solve problems with violence or cash.

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.

Cast of Brotherhood(S01E06) Samyutta 11:10* The line separating the bad guys and the worse guys gets further obliterated this week. Caffe brother Michael does a favor that taints those involved. Poor brother Tommy, meanwhile, already torn up inside after having to ask his father-in-law for help last week, now has his lovely mother Rose rub his nose in it at the weekly family dinner. Just when was almost beginning to sympathize with her. Never again, she's foul.

Showtime's Brotherhood(S01E05) Matthew 12:25: But he knew what they were thinking and said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste, and no town or house divided against itself will stand."

Mike Caffee (Jason Isaacs) appears at times a kind of off-kilter Robin Hood, but more and more it's clear he is really an evil Peter Pan. He won't, probably can't, grow-up, and that's one source of his misery. (Spoilers below the jump.)

Brotherhood: Matthew 5:6

by Michael Canfield, posted Jul 30th 2006 11:30PM
The Caffee Brothers(S01E04) Matthew 5:6: "Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied."

Family loyalty trumps all again this week. A combination of Mike's littering the neighborhood with counterfeit bills and his slicing off a fellow mob soldier's ear (in the pilot -- who then turned informant) gets the secret service to show up at mama Rose Caffee's Sunday dinner with a search warrent. They toss the house and come up empty. Almost empty anyway, as the particular timing of the search appears to be planned to embarrass state assemblyman Tommy Caffee as much as anything. Though I missed how this is supposed to help the secret service in their investigation of gangster brother Mike Caffee. Maybe the feds are merely headline hungry. Good episode.

Tom Caffee's "hunger and thirst for righteousness," don't seem to give the satisfaction promised in the title quote, and he hardly seems blessed, poor guy.

Brotherhood: Matthew 13:57

by Michael Canfield, posted Jul 23rd 2006 10:25PM
The cast of (S01E03) Matthew 13:57: "And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, 'A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and in his own house.' "

But this one could have been: "What will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul? "(Matthew 16:26) as Tommy slices off yet another piece of his integrity in order to address another political expediency -- this time a garbage strike, the full impact of which is well shown in an effective opening montage.

Series creator, Blake Masters, said (in his interview for the official show podcast) he finds the global politics of The West Wing boring and that the world of local politicians, say, working to get a new park put in their neighborhood, is the really interesting stuff. That's got to be a minority viewpoint.
