Weeds 2:3

Silas is such a stupid asshole! Oh my fucking Lord!! I can not believe he's trying to get her pregnant to stop her from going to Princeton.* Can not! That is so unbelievably reprehensible. I don't care if he is a stupid teenager in love, I just... GAH! *fist* If I were Meagan, I would kick him in the balls until all his sperm were dead.

Also, I really think Peter is screwing Nancy over. I don't know why, but I feel like he's gonna blackmail her somehow... and the marriage thing blew my mind!

I was really impressed with Conrad being ready to just take a hit in the face. What a responsible, honorable man.**

I loved the whole Andy*** talking to Shane about masturbation. I was sitting with my jaw open, dying of laughter inside. He was slick, and almost disturbingly knowledgeable. Seriously, high quality television.

*I also can't believe they went there.
**And Dean totally did re-define pussy, even though I hate that word.
***I have a feeling his date with the Dean or whatever is going to end badly.


Okay, I love this damn show, and that's all I have to say about this episode. How 'bout you guys?

I completely agree with everything you said.

God, Silas's condom thing, though...even in the last episode, even though he was kind of a dick then, he was just being stupid and ignorant and an annoying asshole. But I still loved him and knew he loved her and thought he was sweet. But, god, when I saw him about to do that...I literally started screaming "NUH UH!" at the television. I think I freaked out my friends (yeah, they came over just to watch Weeds, because we're that cool). I hate his fucking guts. What an obnoxious, idiotic DICKHEAD. Ugh!

I'm so with you on the Andy-masturbation-lecture. Funniest fuckin thing ever. I love Andy to death. And I think Israeli chick will, too - how could she not?

You know what, though - tell me if you agree/disagree - the more we get into this season, the more Nancy herself pisses me off. Just in terms of character. First season I totally believed that you know, even though she was pretty good at the whole pot thing, her family was most important and no matter what else she did outside the house she was a good fucking mom. But now I'm really not so sure; I'm starting to doubt her parental skills. I really really think she should have talked to Silas and Shane about her dealing, like Andy told her too - but of course she never did. And what do you want to bet she won't tell anyone about the marriage for at least an episode or two? She's just getting more and more unbalanced. Which I guess makes for a plot, but...it also makes me not like her as much.

Heh, I was hoping you'd have a post about Weeds :)

Oh wait, one question - by "Doug" do you mean "Peter", or do you really think Doug is going to screw Nancy over? I just got confused.

My Dumb is Pastede on YAY!
Totally meant Peter. Changing it now, thanks! My brain is a little on the fritz, 'cause I'm having a hypoglycemic episode. Hah.

Yeah... I don't think Silas even begins to realize what he's getting himself into. He may as well just rip her life away from her... it's so completely cruel. I don't think he's doing it for vengeful reasons, but I don't think he's even remotely prepared to be a father.

Now! Do you think the scene we saw was the first time he'd done it, or do you think he's been doing it every time?

Don't get me wrong. Andy has grown on me. Initially, I hated his guts but I've come to really appreciate him now. I just... think everything he touches is doomed to fail. :) It's like King Midas, but with suck instead of gold.

I am still not pissed at Nancy. I do think she cares about her family, but I think she feels as though everything is out of her control right now. What with having married a DEA, still being a pot dealer, having a son who has recently become extremely sexually active, and another son just discovering the dual functions of his genitalia, Lupita beeing less than cooperative, Conrad almost being out of the deal... etc. I think she's just lost with all that's on her plate, and doesn't really know how to deal with it. I don't think she planned to be where she is (obviously, she didn't plan for Judah to drop dead, but...) I never really got the impression that she was an experienced pot dealer.

I wish we knew more about what she did before when Judah was alive. Was she a housewife? I kind of assumed so, but she doesn't seem very domestic... I don't know. I wish we had a bit more backstory. That would help me make character judgements. ;)

Oh and hey, the little white flashback thing was super, duper hokey. Just so we're clear as to where I stand on that one.

Awww, and anyway... with the show going as it is, I'm pretty sure I'll be putting up an entry for each episode just because I can't not squee. I do, however, have On Demand, so it may not be in a timely fashion all the time. :) Especially not with school coming up, and with me having Gospel Choir on Monday nights. :)

Is the second season on On Demand yet? I looked last night and couldn't find it...thankfully, I also have TiVo :)

I think that was the first time Silas did it. Otherwise he wouldn't have sat there and thought about it so much beforehand, you know?
Haha, the song that played during that scene - Ben Lee's "Gamble Everything for Love" - I was so excited when it came on because I love the song...but now I don't think I'll be able to listen to it again for a while without going "Eugh!"

Yeah we've got episode 6-13, baby. Heh, and we also have yon TiVo.

I friggen love Ben Lee. But see... the choice of that song made me think he was doing it the whole time, and the reason he thought about it more was because he was thinking... "shit, what if this really happens?"

I don't know though... I waver. It seems like it could go either way. Sometimes I think it was the first time for similar reasons, and maybe he just did it that once and is rolling the dice to see if it's "fate"... give me a few minutes and I'll change my mind again.
