Today, we look at when (or if) you folks believe that Brothers and Sisters “jumped the shark.”
This is “Just Can’t Jump It,” a feature where we examine shows that launched in 2006 or later and whether they “jumped the shark.” Jumped the shark means that the show had a specific point in time where, in retrospect, you realize that show was going downhill from there. Not every show DOES jump the shark. Some shows just remain good all the way through. And some shows are terrible all the way through. What we’re looking for are moments where a show that you otherwise enjoyed hit a point where it took a noticeable nose dive after that time and if so, what moment was that?
Brothers & Sisters was a primetime family drama about a large California family and, well, you know, the brothers and the sisters (plus their mother, played by Sally Field, and their uncle, played by Ron Rifkin).
So first…DID IT JUMP THE SHARK? I think so
WHEN DID IT JUMP THE SHARK In the final season, they had written off so many characters, including Rob Lowe and Emily Van Camp.
