The Walsh family. Wow. So much to say.
For starters, I love the idea of a big family juicy with relationships, drama, and love. I enjoyed seeing the relationships between the sisters-in-law, the brothers, between the brothers and their wives, and the all important matriarch: Birdie.
Bridget Walsh aka Birdie is such a fun character. She is beautiful, bright, accomplished, interesting, and complicated. No one really knows the real Birdie. I especially like seeing Birdie through Shoshana's eyes. They have a unique relationship. Shoshana's future sisters-in-law see her as elusive, but Sho sees something different in her.
Watching Shoshana enter into the Walsh family is certainly a journey of trials and tribulations. It is a lot of pressure to become a Walsh. Shoshana is from a modest background and for her to see the over the top wealth and way the Walshes live life is not only overwhelming for Shoshana but also completely mind blowing.
Shoshana is engaged to the youngest brother, Andrew…Drew for short. Drew has three older married brothers.
Birdie's husband and the boys' father died years ago.
Here is the cast of main characters:
