"A Pool and His Money" Season 3, Episode 2

Now this is the Weeds I love. As I opined in the new TV Guide Talk podcast, the season premiere of the Showtime series was missing something. It was "fine," just not manic. And it was lacking heart. This week's episode was chockablock with tension and pathos (as Nancy let it all out... while submerged), and much less of the zany antics. So after belting sassy Nancy with the smack heard 'round the world, Heylia gutted the easy chair and rode to the rescue, but only Conrad's rescue. Now Nancy owes U-Turn, as does Conrad, who seems deigned (yet hardly resigned) to be the big guy's "sharecropper." Let's take a moment here to give props to Page Kennedy (aka Housewives' original cellar dweller) for his turn as U. Dude does menacing well, yet with just a hint of dumb. I will have a fit if he dares taint my Nancy, on the kitchen island or anywhere. Marvin also endeared himself to me this week, like when Nancy said she wasn't a toker, and he replied, incredulously, "Seriously?" Or when he said, "I'm just an employee. I'm not management." I also liked the arc they sent Celia on, because it made such sense. Here she was, the big Drug Czar in Town, and her own best bud is the best bud dealer. Gotta hurt. The salt in the wound: Dean being so detached, and Doug's postcoital sobbing. Sanjay's gay? Not sure what that was about/for, other than the humor in Clinique not able to "**** it out of him." Other laugh lines: " Andy defending his chocolate milk affinity by saying, "I'm rejuvenile." " Heylia to Conrad: "We've got to get you some rest. You have to wake up tomorrow... and work on your slave name." " "That boy's gayer than a handbag full of rainbows." Now, how many comments will we get this week? More than last week's six? They're lobbying for me to blog another Monday show for the fall, so make this worth my while, Weedies! show less
