Brotherhood S02E02 (Showtime)

The second season of Brotherhood has just started and I finally took the time to watch the first few episodes. I’ll have caught up by this week. Brotherhood is a good show that reminds me a lot of the Sopranos, but is still different enough to be very interesting.

Tommy gets into some hot political water after he disregards Eileen’s advice. Declan is getting dangerously low after Cassie continues to give him the cold shoulder. Moe uses Mike’s problems to make him loose his position with Freddie once more. Collin tries to find his place as the newest part of the Caffee family.

I enjoyed this episode. Tommy still hasn’t resolved issues with his wife Eileen and takes his sister Mary Kate to official functions. It doesn’t look good. Things are also not going so well for Michael. Moe takes the opportunity to screw him over with Freddie because of the debacle that happened with Nazoli. I recommend Brotherhood, it’s another great show on Showtime.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
