It has to be by far my favorite show, all the characters have some interesting aspect to them, I even like the ones you're supposed to hate! The writers of this show have an awesome sense of humor and imagination!

If they are getting rid of Little Boxes theme, then what will they replace it with?

@nakara11 -- I'm here (sort of) recovering from an illness and not online as much lately. But yes, I did get the first episode and yes, we watched it and, of course I want *more*! I love what they're doing to Celia (little b......) *giggle*

@kolbinfo -- I did like the "little boxes" with the fire and smoke and all but I would love a little change in theme song. Well, we'll see what they have ready for us Monday (or Tuesday) :D

No clue zandar.

Welcome back Devaasha..hope your feeling better. Yes, Celia is getting it isn't she....lovin it!

Celia deserves all the punishment. Remember the Silas incident, and the pool incident right afterward? Also how she treats her ex and kid is awful.

Finally got to see the latest episode (chaos can be time consuming).

I find it kind of interesting that, once again, Nancy has a man (Guillermo) running her show and "teaching" her. I hope they don't have her smuggle any person across the border; that's really not the point of the show (IMHO, of course)

As for Celia, I'd feel a lot sorrier for her had I not been paying attention the last three seasons. Boy! Is she going to be P.O'd when she gets out!

Can't wait 'til Monday (though I probably won't get to see it 'til Tuesday or Wednesday (sigh)

14 years ago

You really think Celia will get out? She is not too bright. She could have turned on the blonde guy who smiled too much. He was dirty and that was very obvious. But no she turns on Nancey. Now that was low.

As far as Celia goes, I don't think she sees herself as guilty of anything, so all she has to do is tell the truth... She was never part of the gang, so there is no reason for her to try and protect them... I think she liked the idea of being a bit naughty by renting the house out to them, but I'm sure she never saw herself as a criminal.

Trying to implicate Matthew Modine's character wouldn't get her out of jail because he had nothing to do with the drugs... I see no reason for the DEA to care about property scams funded by some bogus religious organization...

And as for Nancy, I think the writers have done a great job of sketching a character who appears strong on the outside, but has no real inner source of strength. She fell apart when her husband died and is merely "faking it" when it comes to heading up the family... I think she's just a highly-functioning basket case, which is what makes her character so interesting...

@kolbinfo i agree with you about nancy, she is just living day to day without really making any long term plans. Are the kids going to school anymore and surely the police and insurance people will want to speak to everyone who's house has been destroyed. But she's just vanished which is a bit suspicious.
Not sure if i want celia to get out just now she's the thing that links the old location and characters into this new storyline

Valid points made. I guess we will see tonight what will happen next. Happy veiwing everyone.

@kolbinfo-- I agree with you on Nancy. I think that might be why she attracts and accepts other people's pushing her around (or "teaching") her. I am surprised that someone who seems so intelligent doesn't/didn't have any other decent employment skills. But that's the story I guess.

As for Celia I suspect she'll have to do time of some sort. Even if she's only convicted of renting the house to growers, they'll confiscate the house and give her time (or at least that's the way it usually works in California) for that.

@windsorboyd -- She just got to her father-in-law's. I don't know if it's summer at this point in the series or not, so the kids may not need to be registered yet. I also don't see her settling in for long with Daddy-in-law.

The police and law enforcement would probably not run down everyone's who's house has burned. I suspect a lot of people vanished as their property and all their possessions were destroyed. Now, if Nancy applies for an insurance claim on her house, they may investigate it further, but at the end of last season the "news" was saying that the fires started at a certain point (the biker's grow house/field?) so they're not really looking for arsonists.

D/loading #3 now -- can hardly wait!

*****************Posible Spoiler alert***************************
















Nice episode. I guess Celia is smart when she needs to be, but I don't see her bringing in Guillermo. And if he catches her snooping around he may just disappear her.

@nakara
****Season 3 discussion*****
It was already established that Nancy's second dead husband (Scottson), the DEA agent, was dirty - as was his partner (Fundis - aka acid reflux guy), and their boss (Tillman) found out they were dirty during the time when his partner wanted to investigate his (Scottson's) disappearance. Tillman didn't do anything about Scottson's disappearance because it would look bad for the agency. What Tillman didn't know, is that Nancy was involved in the drug trade, something he does now...
****************************
******Security Breach*******
They could alway reprise Fundis if they wanted to throw a "security breach" wrench into things, other than Celia fumbling around. Fundis may have been keeping an eye on Nancy all this time.... That seems like a bit of a reach to me, but you never know on this show, do you?

The writers are still surprising me, what a great show. Albert Brooks has been a delight to watch. I don't know how they do it, but they seem to strike an amazing balance between tragedy and comedy, nearly every episode.

@Zanderblade, I'm also getting a kick out of the show's logo morphing out of something else each week.

14 years ago

Makes you wonder if the writers and producers are smoking the product before making the show.

Well, it is always good to do your "research" for writing and acting :)

another good episode this week , who would think that a group of people sitting around sniping at each other could be so funny, nancy's delivery of her dialogue is priceless, so understated but so effective. Poor Celia rofl can't wait to see what she does now, she seems to get in more trouble than nancy

@parm

I miss Conrad too, but I'm sure they will find a way to bring him back. What is there to say about Silas and his van? Two pot head have it impounded and now he has to bribe them to get it back. I truly doubt it will be that bad.

@zanderblade What makes you think they'll bring Conrad back? It actually wouldn't make sense for the whole cast to wind up in the same place after the fire. At least it would seem awfully contrived to me.

Next episode tomorrow :)
