What was your favorite TV season finale this year? 
Submitted by Kristine.

"Brothers & Sisters". I love this show.

Maybe it's the all-star cast [1], maybe it's the idealized and yet very real family interactions, maybe I'm just a sucker for a romantic story line with dreamy Rob Lowe as a U.S. Senator, but this is one show that I TiVo and relish watching every week.

The only thing I don't like about this show is the actor who plays the youngest brother, Justin. His story line is engaging and complex (struggles with addiction, Gulf War vet, youngest sibling angst), but he has only one "emotive" facial expression (my sister's criticism of Meg Ryan: see #6 on this post if you're in her neighborhood) and it's this wide-eyed, aren't-oh-so-tragic and preciously soulful look. It makes me want to see him not return next season from his Iraq tour of duty. Perhaps that's what all the good-byes were about in the season finale. I can only hope.
