You may have heard of the illusory quality of paper water. Well, for fantasy value, the rights system that allocates Western water far beyond the volume of actual H2O has been briefly and deliriously topped. Last night on the ABC show “Brothers & Sisters,” a network TV family discovered water (in an aquifer!).
Admitting to having watched it is embarrassing. This show puts most right wing vanilla treacle in the savory category. But it’s always interesting to see California’s water supply on TV. “You’ve heard about California’s water problems!” cried the babbling idiot characters. “We’re rich!”
I can’t wait to see how they develop the water. They’d have a hit if next season Stewart Resnick showed up. Casting would be a no-brainer: Larry Hagman.
PS: If you have a TV, don’t watch this crap. It’s evil. Instead, watch Treme on HBO, set in post-Katrina New Orleans. Now there’s a show that knows water and humanity.
