"The Brick Dance" Season 3, Episode 3

The Closer (which I also blog about) followed by Weeds is a nice one-two punch. I highly recommend it. Chase your weekly dose of homicide with a bit of reefer madness. Not to mention, you get two Emmy nominees playing memorable, one-of-a-kind women. But whereas I don't like much zany with my crimesolving, I crave lunacy an hour later, and this week's Weeds delivered. I feel like this season's first two episodes were obligatory cliff-hanger resolutions, and only now have we really started the new stuff. Andy dragged into boot camp and paired with a hyper little "battle buddy"? Love it. Nancy was summoned to perform a "brick dance" for bad guy Guillermo "Don't Call Me Pedro"? Hot, hot, hot. I know - Mary-Louise tried to make Nancy seem a bit inept/unsure, but hell, that kind of unsure sure works for me! Wonder if Judah ever got such a show? Ah yes, Judah. Money magazine this week actually has a small story on the ways in which Nancy Botwin could have made ends meet other than by peddling pot. They mention Judah's life-insurance policy, but someone can probably remind me: He screwed that up, too, right? Was it the same week he unwisely invested in the morning-after pill for dogs? "Arf-U-486"? Dumb, dumb, dumb. I'm still pretty much on the same calendar as you guys and have yet to cue up Episode 4, so I speculate that Celia, as payback for saving Silas' bacon, will ask to move in with Nancy and thus get herself a proper home for her daughter. If she paid a modest rent, that'd kill two story-point birds with one stone. (Plus, Andy's bedroom is free - just don't open the nightstand.) Fun little guest-star turn by Carrie Fisher as Celia's fish-torturing attorney. I come to you with only two bullets this week, but they were riots: " Celia's daughter squeeing, "Sweeeet!" as she stumbled across the motel's "channel containing adult material that is lesbian." (Working around the language filter here.) " Doug, having disclosed to Nancy his torrid affair with Celia, shrugging, "The **** wants what it wants." If only Hallmark made a card that said that.
