  1. I was actually tossing up over whether or not i’d even watch “Sisters”, but we decided to give it a go at the very last minute… man, i really enjoyed it a lot more than i thought i would… very watchable with engaging characters… looking forward to seeing more

  2. Found Sisters a bit try hard.
    Was just OK and frankly pretty grating at times.
    Really wanted to like it – some great local actors involved and it should work but something’s missing.
    Hopefully may improve next week – really hope it’s not another long, drawn out double ep though.

  3. I thought that George Michael Freedom would have rated better as everyone I know was watching it & my Facebook page is covered in people talking about it. Maybe they should have put it at 7.30.
