"S--t Highway" Season 3, Episode 4

What. Was. That ?! I'm talking, of course, about one of the most odd TV deaths I have seen in recent years. One second Andy's "battle buddy" is trying to light and fart and then... buzzzzzz- thwap! Impaled by a wayward drone. So very, very bizarre. Took me a moment to understand what the heck had happened. Does this mean we have seen the last of boot camp, and so soon? I suppose the drill sergeant was bound to run out of homophobic imagery sooner or later. Silas' B-story was rather lame, obviously just a means to set up his proposal that he unload Mom's "light" bags while doing his thoroughly unsupervised community service. Welcome to the neighborhood, Sullivan! I will admit I met the news of Matthew Modine's casting on Weeds with an "eh," but his character seems interesting in his duality: touting a belief-based development one moment, dismissing it as so much fal-de-rah the next (and using cuss words). He should be a nice bridge between our two grande dames, Nancy and Celia. Speaking of Celia, the other raison d'episode was the town council meetings where Sullivan pitched his proposal to Agrestic, the "bowl" to Majestic's toilet seat, and where Doug (perhaps too easily) reclaimed his non-toilet seat on the council. I say "too easily" because it was such a big deal how Celia bested him in the election. But just like that, he's back. Not that I mind at all. He may not be the sharpest tack, but he does know dollars and cents and how to milk Majestic for all they are worth. Not much U-turn this week (though his short scenes are worth their weight in expletives), nor much Conrad at all. And precious little Botwin home life, though Shane's pride in his job-hunting mom was rather touching, for Nancy as well as we the viewers. A few bullets: " Nancy-of-the-bogus-résumé fibbing, "I'm the new West Coast head of Random House!" - and Shane believing her. " "Let's thank god mommy smells like coconut." " Nancy just barely pleading to Silas, "I don't want this for you. Come back here." Reminded me of Willy Wonka's halfhearted plea to stop one of his obnoxious factory-tour guests. show less
