Brothers is an American sitcom that aired on FOX for five seasons from 1984 to 1989. Created by David Lloyd, the show starred Robert Walden in the lead role alongside a talented cast of actors. The show centers around the lives of three adult siblings – Lou Waters (Robert Walden), a sportswriter; Joe Waters (Brandon Maggart), a plumber; and Cliff Waters (Paul Regina), a restaurant manager – who live together in a small apartment in Philadelphia. They are joined by their widowed father, Tom Waters (Philip Charles Mackenzie), who moves in with them after his wife's death.

The series explores the relationship between the brothers as they deal with the challenges of adult life – romance, work, money, and family – while living under the same roof. While Lou is the dominant sibling who often meddles in his brothers' affairs, Joe is the easy-going everyman who loves his beer, while Cliff is the charming playboy who often finds himself in trouble.

Throughout the series, the brothers navigate their complicated familial relationships, as well as their individual personal and professional pursuits. Lou, a devoted bachelor, is often conflicted about his feelings towards his ex-girlfriend, Ethel (Robin Riker), while also trying to climb the ranks at his newspaper job. Joe, a friendly and lovable plumber, makes ends meet by taking odd jobs and frequently has run-ins with his boss, Harry (Al Ruscio). Finally, Cliff, the young and carefree manager of the brothers' favorite restaurant, spends his time chasing after women and avoiding consequences.

Despite the brothers' various eccentricities, they share a genuine love and deep bond that keeps them together through life's ups and downs. In addition to the family dynamic, the show also touched on important social issues of the time, such as HIV/AIDS, drug addiction, and race relations.

Throughout its five-year run, Brothers was well-received by both audiences and critics alike, with many praising the show's heartfelt comedy and relatable characters. The show's all-star cast, including Robert Walden, Brandon Maggart, and Paul Regina, were particularly lauded for their excellent performances and believable chemistry.

Overall, Brothers was a groundbreaking series that pushed the boundaries of what could be explored on television, while also delivering plenty of laughs and heart to its audience. Its legacy lives on as one of the most beloved sitcoms of the 1980s.

Brothers is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on September 25, 2009.
