Before we had the Hemsworth brothers, we had the Lawrence brothers. Joey, Matthew, and Andrew Lawrence taught me a lot as a young girl. By watching that family on television, I learned just exactly what “good genes” meant, and how to spell it. I also learned the importance of a good head of hair on a man (and how everyone looks hot with a little engine grease on their face). That’s right, ’90s babies, I’m talking about Brotherly Love!
Brotherly Love was a television show that only lasted from 1995 to 1997, but somehow, it has worked its way into all of my childhood memories. I was in love with “Joe” from day one. And yes, I loved him even after he cut his hair. But I remember how I watched closely as the effects of this foreign idea called “aging” worked its magic. As a small child who was still learning her times tables, this concept was fascinating to me. For example, how was Matthew suddenly getting hotter than Joey? Was he taking some magic potion? Nope, it was just aging (and years later it’s called not over-manscaping).
Brotherly Love had a simple concept: Three brothers who worked in their family garage and grew up together, and I always loved it. I can’t really tell you anything they ever did, so it’s possible I only watched because they were all attractive, but that still holds true for a number of the shows I watch. However, I do remember the theme song.
It went a little something like this:
So tell me, did you watch Brotherly Love when it was on? Were you also amazed when Matt showed up in Boy Meets World and had fully grown into his looks/officially become the hottest Lawrence?! And do Melissa and Joey promos make you want to cry? Vote below:
