After a long and trying day emotionally imagine my glee when I arrived home and found "Brotherhood" Disc 1 starring Jason Isaacs in my mailbox.

I've seen bits and pieces of the show but never in its entirety.

Let me just say this:


Sure, I admit I started watching for Jason but I was pleasantly surprised at how gripping and well done this show is. The entire cast is brilliant and the acting is phenomenal.

It's a little known series from Showtime that is going into it's 3rd season. It was renewed on the strength of how good the show is instead of ratings. It was also named by Entertainment Weekly (I believe don't quote me on that) as one of the best underrated shows on TV.

Here's a quick synopsis courtesy of www.imdb.com

Set in an Irish neighbourhood in Providence, the series reflects around two brothers on opposite sides of the law: one a gangster (Jason Isaacs) and the other a politician (Jason Clarke).

I will warn you, the show is VERY violent and VERY dark. There are no real good guys in this show. It depicts the various sides of the human condition quite admirably. Michael (Jason's character) is my favorite and to me the most likable even though he's part of the Irish Mafia. It's like The Sopranos except set in Rhode Island with Irish gangsters instead of Italian.

Did I mention it's VERY violent?

On a total shallow note, not only do I get to hear dear Jason say "Fuck" a lot while looking gorgeous with his natural almost black hair with those crystal blue eyes but he also pulls off a Rhode Island (similar to Boston) accent. Hearing "Wicked Pissed" come out of his mouth sent me into a fit of giggles.


I'll stop gushing now lol

I need to download it, there is that redhead guy that i fancy in it as well.

Honey I read your other post, I'm sorry things went so badly and that you're feeling stressed and so down. If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask.
Love you<3

I think I know the red head guy you're talking about. He's brilliant. The whole cast is brilliant.

Download it, I'm interested to hear your thoughts.

I admit the thrill of hearing him say "Fuck" "Cock" and ""Cunt" left me as a massive pile of quivering goo.

And baby, I love you too. I'm feeling better. Days like that I generally close within myself and listen to music. Typing out the entry helped.

I hope you're feeling better.

OMG, I just found this video. I haven't made it to the episode with this one particualr bedroom scene in it.

Fuck, I think I will need to watch it about 10 times ver.

This video does give you a glimpse of the tone of his character.

I am flushing over here lol.

Hope you feel better.

PS-Have you seen the show? The things he does and says in it are panty jaw dropping.
