Every once in a while a show comes along that eludes me, yet gets so much praise and attention that I keep thinking: It can’t be them. It must be me. Brotherhood, which returned to Showtime last night, is one such show. I watched all of season one (Showtime sent the entire season out) and thought the stories were a little too familiar and the characters a little too flat. But other critics loved it. The second season came out, and I gave it a chance again. Still not feeling it. It won a Peabody award.
The show’s back now, and I will give it a chance yet again. But I make no promises. Any fans out there?
