Gilbert's TV-14 -- Notable TV weddings
Kevin and Scotty
Brothers & Sisters, 2008
True to Brothers & Sisters, this was a stagey event. Sally Field as Nora went over the top, as always, to show how gay-friendly she was as son Kevin got hitched to Scotty. But the ceremony was symbolically significant, and not just because Republican sister Kitty (Calista Flockhart) officiated. It was the first time two regular series characters had a same-sex union on American prime time. And, almost more importantly, there was very little media brouhaha and advertiser resistance, as there had been around the gay and lesbian kisses on Roseanne and Dawsons Creek. It was a quiet breakthrough.
