I love everything about ABC’s Brothers & Sisters. Actually, that’s a lie. I love everything about ABC’s Brothers & Sisters except for the heinous new bangs they’ve slapped on Emily VanCamp’s moody half-sister Rebecca this season. Every time she takes the screen, I’m so disoriented/distraught that I have to use my DVR "seven-second jumpback button" (the one with the swirly arrow — if you haven’t discovered it, it’s downright miraculous)to get myself back into the action.
Meanwhile, I’d agree with 99 percent of the world (including series creator Tim Kring) that season two of Heroes has been hella jank. That said, there’s been one positive development lost in all the kvetching: Milo Ventimiglia’s shorter haircut. Out are the floppy, emo-boy locks that obscured Peter’s eyes throughout season one. In: a sudden and unfeasible case of sexy.
In fact, I feel so strongly about Peter and Rebecca’s ‘dos, I nominate them respectively as the best and worst new hairstyles of the current TV season. But, by all means, if you think other updated coifs deserve recognition, list ‘em in the comments section below. After all, winning first prize doesn’t mean anything unless there’s a first-runner-up in tears.
