      Previous Alan Sepinwall Newark Star-Ledger In all candor, Brothers is not anything you might classify as "good." Sep 26, 2019 Full Review Ellen Gray Philadelphia Inquirer Strahan's not yet up to his cast mates' level and the writing's uneven in tonight's back-to-back episodes - producers figure out just how serious Weathers' character's forgetfulness is meant to be - but there are a few great moments. Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Ed Bark Uncle Barky Brothers manages to be fairly amusing, with Pounder showing off her range by shifting from the very serious business of The Shield to playing a sharp-tongued but nurturing matriarch in a house full of childish squabblers. B- Sep 25, 2009 Full Review Melissa Camacho Common Sense Media Brothers is full of all the typical silly jokes and gags you'd expect to see in a half-hour sitcom. 3/5 Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Dan Phillips IGN Movies The cast is for the most part wasted on this sophomoric material. 4.2/10 Sep 29, 2009 Full Review Zach Oat Television Without Pity While the jokes aren't always home runs, many of them are, and you have to give them credit for the subject matter.
