My thoughts regarding Branson:
I think he needs a LEETLE bit of an attitude adjustment. I understand where he's coming from, and he certainly shouldn't be throwing himself at the Granthams in an effort to suck up to them, but it wouldn't hurt to try and meet them a little halfway. He's not the only one who is in a very uncomfortable position, but unlike himself, the Granthams are actually trying to include him as best they can. When he made comment after comment about how uncomfortable he was (in particular regarding the suit they made him wear for the wedding) I wanted to shake him and say, "Dude, suck it up and be a MAN; life is not always about being comfortable!" Sometimes you need to need to make adjustments based on the situation, out of kindness and for the sake of the people you love, in particular his wife, but he seemed to be all "my way or the highway". Rubbed me a bit wrong, but I liked how he and Matthew got along well. I'm hoping that as the series progresses, Branson will loosen up a bit and at least meet them halfway.
