Alicia's brother

I'm supposed to like him since he's "my people," but I don't like him.  (Well, there was that brief moment of fabulosity when he got Alicia's mother-in-law to wear the headdress thing.)

For starters, he cheated [keyword *cheated*] on his boyfriend and then *lied* about it.  That's two self-centered deceptions for the price of one, and yeah, I'm aware that his situation is supposed to parallel Alicia's, that his character plays a sort of "counter-point" to Alicia's "The Good Wife".

Then there's the ridiculous dialogue that passes between the two siblings and is supposed to be "banter".  I think it's utter bullsh-t -- I have two amazing, intelligent sisters [and I am the amazing, intelligent gay brother], and we don't talk to each other like we're mid novella.  (And amazingly enough, we're all voracious readers who regularly swap book titles.)

And finally, the man needs to wear a pair of shoes.  Every gay man knows that socks and Birks is for lesbians.  If he wants to wear socks, he needs a pair of Birk clogs.
