March 19, 2007: Lies! Season 1, Episode 4

"Is it really a lie if you're trying to spare someone's feelings?" The women got a lot of backlash tonight. First, we find Jenny in church. "You've been on your knees for 45 minutes. I know a sin when I see one." I didn't know when she left with Samson last week that she was going to hop into bed with him, but fine. We all make mistakes. I was also shocked that her estranged (also known as dead) husband has been gone for over a year. I'd say those are good grounds for an annulment. Even after all the mistakes made, Jenny is still in love with Tommy. Why did the two of them never get together before? The priest mentioned that she should have never gotten involved with her husband.... So maybe Jenny has really bad taste in men, or she's just unlucky. I felt so bad for Kim. The poor girl must have really fallen fast for Sean. Never mind that they knew each other for less than 24 hours - she took a hit to the face for him. Do you remember that? When Nicky and his wingman were beating Sean, she did her best to defend him and took a nice punch to the cheek. She even stayed with him at the hospital and put up with Mrs. Donnelly. But the last straw was drawn when she showed up at the Donnellys' apartment. Sean never answered her calls, Tommy did his best to ignore her, and Mrs. Donnelly outright insulted the poor girl. The look of confusion on her face was priceless: "What kind of people are you?" Again, I love Kevin. Especially the scene where he was eating his cereal. "What is it, going to get cold?" Even I thought, "Um, no, Tommy, it will get soggy, duh." Kev had a lot of responsibility in this episode. He had to watch over his mother, explain the rules of being a bookie to Jimmy and Joey, and he definitely got slapped with the "middle-child" label at the end. After all he did, he was only given squash for dinner. "I don't like squash. I don't even like saying it." Tommy is the genius of the family, I'll give him that. By the way, was anyone else concerned with the ages of the brothers? Mrs. Donnelly mentioned to Sean that she wants him to go back to school. I'm guessing they are all in their twenties, but it would be nice to know the exact ages. Anyway, Tommy won't be going back to art school. And I'm already predicting a Kate Ferrell hookup. Was anyone else feeling that? I know, I know... she's a widow and older than Tommy. But Tommy likes widows. Also, I can't forget Jimmy and Joey. They both stole the show tonight. Jimmy insulted Jenny so many times I had my hand over my mouth in shock. And Joey was just Joey. I love those guys. No matter how much they screw up. Especially when they take on a man who weighs more than both of them combined - hilarious! I can't wait to see what happens when people start looking for Louie or the guy named Jimmy, at the office. Now, when Kate called Tommy and asked him to come over, I thought, "She knows he took it." But instead, she asks Tommy to change the locks. I knew Tommy put the black box outside while Kate was in the bathroom. I didn't know Matty saw everything, but I believe the kid won't say anything... for now. So Tommy got away with stealing the box. Then his smarts finally kicked in. He played Nicky ( Kirk Acevedo) brilliantly. And even Nicky gave him credit. I'd bet on Tommy over Dokey, too. A person's words can be far more effective than an ax. show less
