Of everything the Walkers endured this year on Brothers & Sisters — Kitty’s miscarriage, Justin’s postwar painkiller spree, Julia’s postpartum blues, Nora’s bipartisan romance, Tommy’s affair, Kevin’s karaoke solo — was anything more traumatic than Rebecca’s episode 4 haircut? ”The bangs,” sighs the unfortunately shorn Emily VanCamp in an EXTRA , ”have caused much controversy on the Internet.” This set’s prize is the ”Home Front” commentary by costars Matthew Rhys and Patricia Wettig and exec producer Ken Olin (Wettig’s hubby of 25 years). Rhys heckles the actors, Olin disses season 1’s DVD commentary, and Wettig shushes them. ”But honey…they?ve already watched this,” says Olin. ”They want us to, like, be fun.” Exactly! B+
