Isn’t it funny that in some ways “B&S” was billed as Calista Flockhart’s return to TV and that’s the part of the show I’m least interested in?
Other than that, I think “B&S” has been in typically solid form – with one exception.
I fell behind on watching this show after the strike, and when various e-mail correspondents asked me what I thought of the whole Rebecca-Justin kerfuffle, I had no answer. My take is this: I don’t mind the de-Walkering of Rebecca, who’d arrived on the scene as William Walker’s secret illegitimate daughter.
If the title of the show is any indication, Rebecca was the presumed sister of Justin, played by Dave Annable.
In an interesting turn of events, Emily and Dave supposedly had so much chemistry off screen as IRL boyfriend and girlfriend that the writers of the show cooked up a paternity scandal that made Rebecca and Justin unrelated, so they could have them start dating and eventually get married on the show.
"When we went on a date, I thought, ' Well, I gotta lock this up,'" he tells Us. " The couple are pretty tame when it comes to discussing their relationship, but have been known to go on double dates — and celebrate birthdays — with pals Jessica Simpson and her husband Eric Johnson.
Luckily, they do have fun when they relax at home just by themselves too.
"But you know, to all of a sudden have photographers snapping photos of you, it's a big change.
You know, I see pictures of myself I had no idea were being taken.
I'm generally very aware of what's going on around me, and I really don't know where they hide.
Following Everwood's cancellation and the end of her relationship with Chris Pratt, Emily signed on to play Rebecca in Brothers & Sisters in 2007.
It’s obvious that the actors who play Justin and Rebecca, Dave Annable and Emily Van Camp (pictured at right), have good chemistry on screen and probably work better as a couple than as half-siblings.
Sure, there’s an “ick” element to idea of those two as a couple.
The weak link for me these days is the story line involving Kitty Walker’s attempts to get pregnant.
