Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Brothers is full of all the typical silly jokes and gags you'd expect to see in a half-hour sitcom. But it also has lots of positive messages about family. While much of the show's humor centers on the adult sibling rivalry between the brothers, their arguing is never strong enough to suggest that they don'tlove each other. And even though Chill's accident and paralysis don't stop him from living a full life, his wheelchair serves as a constant reminder of how the Trainors pulled together to get through some very difficult times.

Despite the show's underlying positive themes, its salty language and frequent sexual innuendo make it an iffy choice for younger viewers. But for teens and adults, watching may help underscore the importance of having -- and maintaining -- close family ties.
