I thought there was a thread for this already but I couldn't find it. Feel free to merge this.
But my question is, did anyone see this weeks episode? and if so what happened?

Keith called David and told him he had broken up with that other guy.

Nate was hitting on a chick rabbi who did a jewish funeral at the parlor.

The body (forgot his name)guy caught that guy he thought was messing around with his wife with another guy in his living room. (and when I say "caught" I mean CAUGHT. :eek: )

His name is Rico and the guy he caught was his brother-in-law. The reason that him messing around with another woman is a big deal is because he is married to Rico's sister. Kind of crazy huh. I don't doubt that he won't keep this a secret.

Also Claire went to visit her aunt. Her aunt had a bunch of hippie chicks over who got drunk and high (among other things).

The little girl that Keith is taking acare of, her appendix burst and she was rushed to the hospital.

The mom was alone most of the time.

Brenda keeps on having fantasies about other men.

That's about it.

How could we omit Nate's imagination of the widow as a future Brenda? :eek: Since he hasn't told her about his head issue, it's a BIG plot point.

Sithdroid, I thought the guy who was helping Rico with his house was his cousin. I think he feared that something was up between him and Vanessa, so the discovery in the house was a shock. Correct me if I'm wrong though, I'm not 100% certain. :confused:

After Keith's niece went in to the hospital, he called David (who thought he was being stood up for dinner) and Dave went to be with Keith.

Hmmm . . .

At the party, Claire became friends with a young dude, nothing happened between them but he is seen in the previews for next week, so there might be a new love interest for our young redhead. Until Gabe rears his head again. :D

Brenda is still hanging out with her prostitute client, she confessed to her about the previous week's happenings . . .

That's all I can remember now, so I turn it over to JEDIpartnr . . .

Oops, you are right caesar. It is Rico's cousin. I don't know what I was thinking. Sorry for the confusion everbody.

This week's episode was totally packed!! There is so much confusion going on with each brother's relationships. I mean seriously, it was always pretty apparent that David and Keith would find each other again and some of that was shown through David's relationship with Keith's niece... that precocious little thing!

Brenda's a mess... I think there is a little more to that "Charlotte: Light and Dark" character that's still inside her. After all, her brother is total loon and her folks are dysfuctional as well!

Poor Ruth... look at her family. Maybe they ALL need to go on the "Plan". Aunt Sarah is a trip. I really like the fact that they are putting Claire into all of these really difficult situations where each tests her mettle. You can tell that she always wants to do the right thing, but her heart leads her elsewhere... great portrayal of teen life... for once!!!

Yes, the "other guy" is Rico's cousin. The funny thing about his cousin and his wife getting it on is the fact that Rico's wife was always dissing his cousin- he's an idiot, he's not a real house inspector, he can't do anything right... Jeez! Who knew THAT was coming? :rolleyes:

I can't wait for next week's episode. I hope these come out on DVD like "The Sopranos", "Sex and the City" and "Queer as Folk" have. Cable premiums really DO have some of the best shows out right now... something for everybody (as far as I can see)!

I thought Gabe died?? didn't he overdose, or am I making up my own plot points.. I know his little brother shot himself. Yeah I think I just assumed he was dead cause he's been gone..

Does anyone remember those "advertisements" that the first couple of SFU started with,, like the dirt shaker.. until they started the 'body of the week' things about the 3rd show in.

Gabe is running from himself and the cops. The last episode in which we saw him was the one where Claire came to pick him up and they were arguing in the car. Some guy pulled up next to them at a light and Gabe shot the guy. Claire wised up and pulled over, Gabe got out of the car and Clair pulled away. that night Claire, David and Nate talked with Keith and made an official report of the incidents in which Gabe was involved.

Yeeeee Haaaaaa! Let's open a one-seven-five o' Jack and have ourselves a wake! :D Those bikers were awesome.
Hehehe, Keith's niece, "But it's Christmas, I want to watch the funeral."

:frus: Oh how I loathe you Billy, not only are you "ghoulish" but downright creepy.

Anyone else catch the possible juxtapostion of Nate and Billy? Bren complains about being Billy's nursemaid all those years, and now she's gonna take care of Nate. :( Her behavior of late is downright unacceptable, I don't care what kind of motivations she has (oh, that's right, she's writing a book). :rolleyes:

SithDroid
04-21-2002, 10:48 PM
Yeah, good episode. I KNEW that Federico was going to say something to someone. It'll be interesting to see how that all plays out. I like Federico and I wish he was in it a little bit more.

Billy, I feel something bad is about to happen now that he is talking to Claire.

Brenda, she just keeps on getting stranger and stranger with every episode. I'm waiting for her to actually end up cheating on Nate with some guy, or GIRL for tht matter seeing as this show has gotten so strange lately.

Claire, I'm gald that hippie kid is not going to be in it anymore. He was a whiney annoying upity little brat.

Nate, with him telling Brenda about his head condition, will only bring something else out of Brenda, the role of caretaker.

David, I'm glad that him and Keith are back together. David has been a lot less of such a stern character lately. He seems like he has been more happy and less uptight.

Keith, I'tll be interesting to see what is going to happen now that his sister is back.

Ruth, always a strange character and probably the hardest to figure out. Hopefully now that Nicoli is going to be around for a while she won't be as lonely. However, I think that he owes some money to some sort of MAFIA which is why he hasn't reported his legs getting broken.

Interesting episode all around.

Heh, I was thinking awhile back how cool it would be to see a Sopranos crossover (Just kidding, I wouldn't really hope for it) but this just might be the way to do it. :D

I should have stated earlier that I really liked the way they flashbacked A LOT to Pa Fischer. The freakiest thing is that he invited Claire along on that fateful Christmas Eve a year ago; thankfully she didn't go. :cry: And I liked seeing him in a scene with Rico. :)

I haven't seen this week's episode...

Although I like the bit about last week with Rico's "wife"- I think Rico's getting it on with some "boys" as well... LOOK... it could happen! After all.. it IS Six Feet Under...

THE Slayer
04-22-2002, 04:15 PM
I'll have to disagree about rico and the boys.. (I haven't seen this weeks ep yet either) but he seems far too happy with his kids and has genuine drama with his wife, He was also really upset when he found his cousin, but maybe he's just afraid :)

2-1B
04-23-2002, 04:01 AM
Ah, but Slayer - Rico's cousin had the wife and kids and he must have liked havin' them around. Still, I'm with you, I don't think there's more to it than his phobia.

However Jpartnr makes a valid point too - Alan Ball has already used the storyline of a gaybasher who harbors contrary feelings in American Beauty. . . only Rico isn't a nazi.

THE Slayer
05-06-2002, 09:44 AM
Funniest line from last nights ep.. Ruth: "You can't explain it. You just do." when she told the russian why he wanted cherry deco contact paper in the bottom of his drawers.
Just thought I'd throw that out there.

05-06-2002, 10:06 AM
Teehee, I liked how Ruth worried that those "ruffians" would come back. :)

I wanted to post in here last week but was too disgusted to do so. Brenda has completely snapped, I don't like her character anymore. And Nate has shown some real flaws lately too. ;)

I had to chuckle at Keith and David's squabbles now that they moved in together. David screaming about how he made the coffee stain on the couch was good comic relief from the despicable ways Keith's sister Carla has been dealing with the little girl. :mad:

THE Slayer
05-06-2002, 12:43 PM
The previews for next week's show didn't look all too exciting.
I guess Carla is finally going to be out of the picture,, It will be odd having keith be a "dad"

SithDroid
05-06-2002, 03:20 PM
Personally I think that this season is a "how much can we shock the audience" type season. So much stuff is messed up. I personally am not liking Brena anymore as well. I wish that Nate would dump her and stay with the girl he got pregnant. Claire is totally messed up, sometimes I just want to sla pher because she has the hardest time explaining herself or making choices, it gets real annoying. The David Keith relationship is pretty interesting. The whole part about Ketih turning in Carla was great, I never liked her and she deserved what she got. It's all thr little girls fault anyway becuase her mom told her not to tell and she did, stupid kid. I have a feeling that she is going to resent David for it now, but she should really be upset with herself. Where was Federico this week. He was hardly in it and I always look forward to seeing him in it. These last 3 episodes are going to be interesting to watch.

Yeah, that Gabe commercial has been playing a lot here. It's actually kind of funny, but I keep thinking "That's not the Devil. That's Jesse from Buffy tVS! :D"


Question for anyone who has seen the whole season. I've been missing big parts of it because I don't have HBO.

What happened with the new guy Claire was dating? Where did he come from and what happened to him?

The reason I ask is because it turns out the actor is a guy named Stark Sands who I went to school with for 10 years. My friend (who I got hooked on watching SFU last season:D) has HBO and he told me last month that while he was watching it Stark showed up.
I didn't hear anything really good about him or his character, which makes me feel nice because I couldn't stand the guy in school :D

2-1B
05-08-2002, 01:50 PM
That character's parents were weird friends of Claire's aunt. He showed up several episodes ago when Claire visited aunt Sarah who had a party for her friends (involved drinking and topless cavorting around a campfire, plus God only knows what else). Claire and the boy (I can't remember his name) hit it off, but it was clear he was to "goody two shoes" for her. He was on again in another episode, but he broke off their fling because she's too negative.

I'm glad they removed the character, I didn't like him anyway. :crazed:

Did anybody see last nights episode. I swear this season just keeps on getting stranger and stranger. I am quite frankly annoyed by Brendas character. I actually want her off of the show. I'd rather see Nate with the other girl he got pregnant than Brenda who is sleeping around, including the 2 guys after he told her about the kid. He told her his secret yet she is keeping hers a secret, I DO NOT LIKE THAT. She is becoming shallow.

David - He really kicked some major a** this episode. He stood up to Keith and to that chick who was going to sue them. Way to go.

Claire - She is so strange and completely hard to follow. You never know what she is thinking. I bet that she gets it on with her counsellor now that he broke up with his girlfriend.

Nate - I'm glad he told Brenda, now only if he would dump her and move on to the Rabii. She is hot.

Ruth - I hope Nikoli pays her back the money she gave Yuri.

Overrall a good episode, but I swear the show is turning into How much can we shock the audience IMO?

Ruth is still too much of a "door mat". I like her character because she is so complex. It's like she is still taking baby steps to assert herself.

Nate should get together with Lisa (?) or the Rabbi. I think the Rabbi would be a better choice because Lisa's (?) a little too airy fairy and a granola girl.

Claire... she's a typical teenage kid from what I've seen. She's a little into the "dark" things, so I think she just says what she feels sometimes.
Brenda? Two words. "Shoot her."

Exactly. Claire is a typical depressed teenager. She acts trangely because she honestly doesn't know why she does half the things she does. Besides, it's not as though she grew up in a normal household;) so the things that seem strange to us probably aren't from her perspective.

As far as Brenda goes, it kills me how badly her character has turned out. She was honestly my FAVORITE person during the first season; interesting, honest, quirky. She deserved the Emmy she won.

But right now, I just want to strangle her. If they don't turn her around pretty quick she's goi ng to become totally unsalvagable.:(

THE Slayer
05-14-2002, 12:42 PM
Well I think they've managed to push brenda into the foreground as the "most talked about" character on the show. It seems everyone loves to hate her now. But hey she is psychotic. And where's the dad been? I miss his cameos, even if he is dead.

05-14-2002, 02:16 PM
Richard Jenkins (Nathaniel Sr.) was on a few weeks ago, he was taunting Natey because he was considering a confession to Bren about the baby.
Nice to see Keith standing up to the old man, and David's getting a little more assertive too. :)
How about David's "visit" to that pawn being used by Mitzi (sp?) to sue them? CLASSIC! :D

05-20-2002, 11:25 PM
Did anyone see this weeks episode? It was really good. We actually got to see more of Federico, plus Nate found out about Brenda and the two surfer guys and they got into a huge fight and he threw his ring at her. Plus Nate's child is born. I can't wait to see the season finale. I hope now that they give Brenda the boot on the series, however I don't think that they will since she won a Golden Globe for the show. I'll probably get irritated with the show if Brenda and Nate stay together. He should really get together with the woman he had his child with.

Also I think the whole Ruth and Nikoli situation was stupid. They break up shorty after she gives him over $80,000. What is that all about? It doesn't make sense. Stupid writing if you ask me. I think that Nikoli would be more grateful to her and would start paying her back. But as I've said before this whole season has been, how much can we shock the audience.

Ruth should have Nik's legs broken again! :D

While I do not condone the manner in which Nate spoke :eek: to Brenda, I am glad he "gave" the ring back.

SithDroid, you are so right about Rico last night, I felt bad for the loss of his father. I know you are big on his character, and I too was glad to see some more of him. He looked funny with his younger hair. :)

No episode next week, the evening is being used by HBO to remember the :cry: World Trade Center.

JEDIpartner
05-23-2002, 09:28 AM
Well... I think Nate's reaction to Brenda would have been the exact same reaction any one of us would have had.

"Don't throw your ring at me... that is so cliche I'll puke"

(Nate takes off ring and throws it at Brenda) "There's your ring... now puke!"

Brenda just acts like she is so much better than everyone else and I think that Nate was getting a little sick of that. I felt that his reaction was meant to allow him to momentarily sink to her level while taking her down a couple notches.

Ruth... poor Ruth. I really like her. Don't ask me why. I suppose at some point in my life I've felt that I really wanted something so badly but never got what I felt I deserved. She's looking for a bit of happiness and Nikolai was just being cold. I wanted to smack the SH-T out of him... especially after she paid off the "ruffians"!

I'm glad that Claire may have found her niche... she really seemed happy.

Keith has some issues. Yow! I like the Taylor-David dynamic. She really seems to enjoy spending time with her. I think he is a good role model for her.

The Rico storyline was cool. A little kindness goes a long way. Don't ask and you shall receive... somehow. I operate under that ethic. Just be kind to everyone- you never know what effect that may have on you down the road. The initial connections we have with people may not be what they seem and the full impact may not come until years later.

2-1B
05-23-2002, 11:46 AM
JP, that was well said about Nate's actions. :cool: I was just taken aback that he called her a certain word. :(

I was thinking about Rico, and this is kinda morbid but given the tragic and gruesome circumstances of his father's passing, do you think that may have prepared him for his future career? The first time he met Nathaniel Fischer was for his father's funeral, so I think the service Nate Sr. provided plus the ordeal he went through helped make the transistion to restorative artist.
Just my impressions, they didn't go that far into his motives yet . . .

JEDIpartner
05-23-2002, 12:16 PM
I am quite certain that, since Rico's dad's face hit the pile of bricks, Rico was quite impressed by the fact that his father's face was returned to recognisable form. That and the gratitude that he felt toward Mr. Fischer really moved him to have this kind of loyalty for the family business as well. It was illustrated, in this past episode, that Rico is a kind and thoughtful guy. Obviously... since his unselfish deeds were rewarded.

JEDIpartner

Season Finale...

I liked the connections that are being made (are you paying attention?) between the things David does and the things Ruth does. Their behaviour is virtually identical David to Keith and Ruth to Nikolai as well as her kids.

I'm glad that Nate finally told his mom about his illness. It was good to see some of the walls between the two of them being broken down. It was also interesting to see how Nate finished up his conversation with Brenda... where is that crazy bee-yatch off to?

The Nate-Claire scene was pretty cool as well. I thought the season, inspite of how outrageous it had been in the weeks before, came to a very nice and intimate close.

I still hope Nate and "Granola Girl" Lisa hook up. Cute baby...

Speaking of Claire... it was nice to see her fall apart during her interview at the art school. She has been Miss Dour and Sarcasm all the way along and now she FINALLY got in touch with her real feelings. This is why I think the character of Claire is one of the best written teens on television. She is real and completely conflicted. PERFECT!
Good to see Rico getting more involved in the family business. It seems the family is so distracted by everything else that is going on, that they can't attend to the business. I think Rico MAY, and that could always change next season, be a grounding person. Someone who will get things on track for the Fishers.

I was happy with the story arc for the season. I can't wait til next winter :eek: for the next season to start.

p.s.- thanks for the big $62 payback Nikolai! :rolleyes:

SithDroid
06-03-2002, 09:22 AM
The season finale was really good. I'm glad Brenda packed up all her stuff and is leaving. Nate should be with Lisa. I think his surgery will go fine because they are not going to kill off a major character to the show. I'm glad that Rico is a partner now. I really like David's character. He has really changed since the first season. I can't wait till the next season starts.

THE Slayer
06-03-2002, 10:41 AM
They could very well kill off nate, I remember reading(in an article when the show first aried) that they had a plot line that would basically run through three seasons, then if it got picked up again the would do something else.. I'm pretty sure SFU also got made because the hbo execs got to read the overall 3 season story arc, and apparently they liked it.

JP, I agree with your comment about ruth and david, it's just that ruth didn't end up rolling around on the floor with keith. :)

For some reason, I don't like Lisa, she just annoyes me.? But Claire is a great character as you said.
Did anyone else think that nates dad, or maybe God, would have been driving the bus at the end??

Hmmmm, we get SFU over here for the first time on terrestrial tv this coming week. So I'll understand what the heck this mothers meeting in a hair salon is all about. From the trailers and teasers so far I'm thinking I'm gonna love this show. If it's odd - I'm in. :D

06-04-2002, 12:43 PM
Hope to have you as a regular here Jargo! :D

No, NAte and Lisa should not end up together. Something too strange about her talking to ants. No thanks! But did you notice (how could you not :rolleyes: ) how Lisa now dresses exactly like Ruth? Reminds me of that Single White Female movie. :crazed:

So, the season finale - I LOVED it. Possibly the best episode yet. Oooh, was I frightened when the show started with a shot of Nate. Nah, they won't kill him so I expected it to be Aaron . . . :cry: I'm sorry I was right, that scene with Nate and the crying was painful. Very moving. :(

But I still haven't ruled out Nate's death in the 3rd season, and frankly if they kill him I may stop watching . . . well, if Rico gets a bigger role maybe not. :D

I remember before the season premiere, Peter Krause (Nate) was talking about how Alan Ball really pushed him this season and I'd say that the efforts paid off nicely. :happy:

06-11-2002, 03:49 PM
Well the pilot aired here last night and I'm hooked. Nathaniel is cool. Nate is my new hero, David is gonna wind me up no end and I hated brenda from the moment she stepped on screen. Claire is really really cool and makes me wish I'd had a girlfriend as wacked as she is. Ruth has a funny mouth but the actress is really really fine so I can overlook the mouth thing. Rico is interesting love his wall of 'art' :)
I realise this is going to be a load of boring waffle to you seasoned fans but I'm gonna catch up and don't mind being spoiled, Those adverts for funeral stuff are really funny, do they run through the series or were they just in the pilot?

I'll probably have more to say once the series gets going and I know the characters a little better but thought I'd drop by to say it rocks. :happy:

2-1B
06-12-2002, 03:35 AM
Glad you liked it sir! :)

Nope, the ads for the funeral stuff will diminish, once the show is rolling they always open with a death scene (no 2 are the same IIRC). :dead: Some gruesome, some peaceful.

Nate is my favorite character, David I didn't like at first but I've warmed to him. :) You're in for some real treats with the Ruth character, and much to the delight of SithDroid and myself Rico will be given some room to expand as a character as well.

It will be cool to get your thoughts on the first season, I didn't bother to save every episode so I can't go back and watch them all again - that's what the inevitable DVD sets will be for! :D




Quick note on the season 2 finale - Did anyone notice "scary" Larry Drake (aka Dr. Giggles aka Benny from L.A. Law) as the health inspector? :D

Jargo
06-12-2002, 06:41 AM
When I said David would wind me up it was only because he's a tightly wound spring from the start. someone that repressed is sure to irritate because we can see that no-one would give a hoot what he gets up to but he can't.

nathaniels funeral was fantastic. I totally agree with nate about the sanitised way funerals are conducted as opposed to the greek (Italian?) way of letting it all out and weeping and wailing that he saw while backpacking round the world. In a strange way it's helped me get over a couple of deaths in the family. I'd been internalising the grief and hearing Nate scream about how crappy that is made me realise i had to let go. Cool. nothing like a real gutteral cry to clear the system. I hope more people start to let go like that and realise that there's no shame in showing emotion.

When my uncle died and we carried his coffin into the church, my brother and I took the feet end at the front and the rest of the bearers took the rear. Trouble was that they were all six feet tall and my brother and I are really short, so the whole weight slipped to the feet end and our shoulders. Guess they didn't nail the body down properly. So the coffin was twisting and waggling as we carried the body because the weight was way too much my uncle being like a really tall and heavy set guy. Got the coffin down the aisle and onto the trolley so the priest could bless him and do all that stuff they do, and as I turned to take my seat I wacked the trolley and it spun off into the pews. If I hadn't been so upset I'd have burst out laughing. Wish i had now. Funerals are way too sombre. They should be about celebrating the life of the person not indulging in grief with dull grey sermons and all of that incense wafting and crap. I know some like it but there should be an alternative available. When i go I want a big party not a weep fest. I'd like a big party on the edge of a live volcano and then the climax is when my body gets thrown into the volcano. I don't want my ashes scattered over a small plot of church yard or something, i want my ashes to be spread across the world when the volcano blows, I got ambitions! :D

Anyway, enough of me pontificating, I have to say that the house the Fischers live in is massive. I know that it's home and funeral parlour too but it seems enormous, like the Munsters or the Adams family homes. guess that's intended huh?

Is everybody ready for the premiere of season 3 tomorrow night? :)

I've seen the preview on HBO a few times now, and it gives away so very little. I'm not too excited for it since there are no big teasers but what I've seen it looks interesting. Rico is a partner now, so I assume that will bring about osme fun conflicts. :D

It looks like Nate will have some more great scenes with his father, I don't expect his medical situation to be cleared up anytime soon.

Whew, I was freaked out at the beginning - I was afraid my worst nightmare had come true. :D

However, it wasn't all good news since Nate is now married to Lisa. :crazed: I can't wait for Brenda to be back on the show . . .

The Keith and David scenes were teriffic tonight, the entire scene in 'couples therapy' was great. While cooking dinner together, I LOVED it when Keith said "I love you. Now give me the carrots." :p

I hope Rico isn't so uptight all season . . . but I'm sure it will make for some great conflicts with Nate ! :)

There were definitely a lot of perks in the episode,, I really hope Lisa's roomate is featured as the 'body of the week' next time. She wins the award for 'quickest to be annoying' in a about .45 seconds.

That was Catherine O'Hara as Lisa's boss/roomate and I agreed with Nate's assessment . . . what did he call her? A "lunatic" ? :D

Poor Ruth, she didn't know about the peanut butter risk. :(
At least Lisa filled her in! :crazed:

Bring back Brenda! :)

Well well well, surprise SURPRISE Claire ! Your "boyfriend" turned out to be a real scumbag. :rolleyes:
Oh well, what does it matter to her, anyway? You are so right about that, JP. :D

I was really freaked out by the opening sequence, I was sitting there watching it and just feeling sorry for the guy in his kitchen because I "knew" he was going to die. But instead they went with that horrible shooting at an office, and I just felt sick. Purely disgusted at the thought of it, because it's happened too often these past years. :cry:

I was really hoping to see Frederico talk to the killer's "ghost" , and I think that scene worked really well. At first I was not liking Rico at all this season . . . and in many ways I still don't - but this part of the plot was a good way to talk about some of those issues (funeral for the murderer, family involvement, etc.) and I think it was done very well.

Still, Rico needs to settle down because he's too bullish as a new partner. Oh I'm sure David and Nate could pick up a little more slack of their own. Yet, Rico has plenty to learn himself, especially about how to deal emotionally with the customers. :D

I almost forgot - Kathy Bates rocked. :cool:

MAN! That was a totally cool episode! Rico was completely out of control with his morality thing. It was a business and I can see David's point about how the killer was someone's "son, who they loved."

Lisa's boss should be shot immediately. Lisa reminds me of my friend Connie. She is a little flakey sometimes... and Lisa's the same way. I hope Keith and David get things sorted because that whole storyline is getting on my nerves a bit.

Kathy Bates... excellent as always. Poor Ruth... more nursemaiding for her. I DID like the line about how she'd break her sister's arm if she had to... :D

I hate to break it to you, but this show has partly been about g a y characters since the very beginning when it was supposedly "enjoyable." :)

I'm not g a y and only have a handful of g a y people in my life - frankly, I love the fact that we get to see actual g a y characters. Honestly, I'm disappointed in the criticism that HBO is just going for "shock value" by showing men kissing. Really, the show is about sooooooo much more than that. Keith and David are rather complex characters in that they are shown to be multifaceted, just like Nate and the other straight characters.

Right, and again my point is that they've been doing that the whole time . . . not just this season. The point was not that Nate literally went on a ride with the dead guy, he was just living out a mini-fantasy which he picked up while preparing the guy's funeral. If you took that literally, well maybe you watch too many movies. ;)

Oh of course you would, based on your previous ramblings. :rolleyes: If Keith and David were only about sex, I wouldn't be interested in their story. Claire is foolish in her sexual escapades, but I still watch it for her character. But since Claire and Nate aren't g a y , we won't worry about it, eh ? :rolleyes:

I know several "struggling" couples who stay together and have sex "all the time." Doesn't sound like such propaganda to me . . . or very shocking for that matter. The behavior is sometimes shocking to me, but not in terms of being g a y or straight.

She has broader issues than just sexual ones. Don't forget Nate's sluttiness though, as they got together within 5 minutes of meeting each other in the first episode.

I'm just happy that people like me are being represented on television at all... I'd prefer them to be shown in a "normal" light like this (from time to time) than some huge send-up of the "stereotype."

I think the show is starting to relax a little bit and have a little fun. There's nothing wrong with that. Ruth having someone to have fun with whether in a friend (Kathy Bates) or a guy she's crushin' on. Look... she's human and we ALL have feelings of desire and emotions that need to be addressed.

Thank goodness there are people out there with enough guts to write about and portray these elements on telly. What's really sad when someone feels they need to hide behind "macho bravado" and cannot experess tenderness and vulnerability because they feel it's a compromise of sorts. The same goes for women who are afraid to be strong because people will think they are just 'yatches.

"SFU" is great telly and a little truer to life than some of us are willing to admit or too sheltered to realise.

JP,
Claire has ditched Russell because he "fooled around" with Olivier (their teacher). :mad:

The big story is Lisa's disappearance, she left to visit her sister and called Nate from an ocean rest stop . . . then he never heard back. That was last week, and now this week they found her car in the same place. No word on her whereabouts, but Ruth thinks she is dead.

Ruth has a new love interest coming in, played by the wonderful James Cromwell.

Rico is having some problems, since Vanessa is depressed (following her mother's death). Her sister is not much help, she only serves to antagonize Rico and "get in the way."

Last week, Keith and David went to visit Taylor and Keith's parents - Keith confronted his dad for past abuse as a child, his dad got upset with Keith and reinforced his disgust with Keith for being g a y. David tried butting in but Keith snapped on him . . . so they are on thin ice. Last night however, Keith was very calm and caring as he helped Nate and David with the search for Lisa. Next week's preview doesn't look too good for Keith and David though . . .

Last night's show ended with Nate in a motel on the ocean near Lisa's car in case she returns. David and Claire showed up for support, and they all hugged as Nate broke down and cried. :cry:

On the Chenowith front, last week Billy tried slipping Brenda the tongue, and she flipped out on him. He tried to pass it off as just affection, but being the sick POS he is, Brenda left. So this week we found them with their mother, debating where to spread their dad's ashes. The psycho mom got ticked and just dumped them over the balcony into the street. :rolleyes: Billy confessed to Brenda that he "loves" her (in a gross way) so she's not pleased with that of course . . . that nut job believes that if he tells her how he "feels" then he might be able to shake the crush. YUCK ! :mad:

That's all I remember off the top of my head, maybe someone else can hop in here. Oh, HBO.com might have some useful episode summaries as well. :) I know they always do for The Sopranos . . .

Oh yeah, Claire is pregnant. How predictable was that? She'll get an abortion of course because those liberal writers have to make a point.

And what point might that be? ;)

Honestly, a few weeks ago I thought you may have a point there but now I must disagree. Keep in mind that I am 'pro-life' and opposed to abortion, that's the perspective from which I write this. :)

Okay, so she decided on the abortion which I disagreed with. On one hand, she wrestled with the decision and on the other hand she casually asked Brenda for a ride because "I gotta get an abortion." I thought that illustrated the extremes on the issue, some people take it seriously while others don't think so much about it. Either way, Claire wrestled with the decision regardless of whether or not you think she did the right thing.

Still, I could see how you might make the accusation of it having a liberal slant - but not after last night's show. The shot of Lisa with Claire's baby was absolutely heartbreaking, I thought it went WAYYY beyond political boundaries there. If they were just going with a pro-choice slant, I think they would have brushed off the consequenses of her decision.
Breaking down during her mother's wedding to James Cromwell ? I thought that was well done, it's not like she just went about her business without emotional consequence. :)

I KNOW SSG does not need an abortion debate :D but I just had to express my 'pro-life' reaction to the Six Feet Under abortion storyline. I wish the character would have made a different choice but I applaud the way they handled the storyline. It felt pretty realistic as I'm sure many people go through those same experiences.

However, I just wasn't into the past 2 episodes that much . . . hopefully it will get back on track soon - I won't give up on it ! :D

Arthur and the feces was great but now it looks like he's gone ? That sucks.

I like Keith's deal with the new job and how he was acting straight when the guys were checking that girl out. :crazed:

I really hate that Olivier, by the way. He was on last week but thankfully was not around this episode (Even though Brenda's 'mother' talked about him tonight).

As I said earlier, I think it was unethical to pick that guy up on a body pickup AND David was obviously fantasizing about that guy so for those 2 reasons, maybe he doesn't want to come forward ? It could be interesting, we'll see . . .

Claire was brilliant as usual. Regarding Mena Suvari's "advances": "Okay, fine. We'll do it. Let me go brush my teeth first." :p

I was really happy to see Ruth's sister and the long-awaited return of Kathy Bates!!! That was a real surprise. I honestly didn't expect to see her return. With the appearance of Kathy Bates, one can expect some changes in Ruth. She always seems to be the impetus for such things. This is gonna get good!!!

It was nice to see the actress who played Lisa return to the character, if only in spirit/Nate's subconscious form.

Sure. :crazed:

I loved the past 2 episodes. Very cool.

How about that birthday dinner ? :D

Claire was awesome:

"Mom, it can't just be the women clearing the table."

Keith and Rico look at each other and get up to help

"Now it's just the women and people of color."

:p

I was kind of weirded out on how David played down his kidnapping. I just thought it was, well stupid to pretend you didn't almost die.

I love this show, but man Nate needs to hook back up with Brenda bad. Nate is really starting to remind me of Charlie from Party of Five.

The gay parts are kind of funny to me. It's not everyday you see 2 men getting down. I'm not bashing gays, so please don't get bent. I'm not gay so it's hard to understand, but what ever floats your boat.:)

I think David is playing the kidnapping down because he is trying to avoid it and get his life back to normal. It's quite common for people to sweep a traumatic event under the rug because it is very upsetting and causes great distress.

I really enjoyed the season finale. I think it's great that Vanessa isn't taking Rico back and has asked for a divorce. That's a sensible course. I wonder if she'll hold to that.

What's up with George? My partner works as a mental health assessor and said that his actions seemed to reflect schizopherenia. It's entirely possible seeing as he became increasingly paranoid. His daughter seems to know know something is amiss.

I'm a bit worried about the direction Claire has taken. Is she being seduced by "the dark side"? ;) Once unsure and self-doubting, she has gotten full of bravado and a little too drug dependant. I'm seeing her as "Clairevita"... sleeping her way to success. :(

David and Keith... meh. I really don't know how I feel about the two of them. I think their characters portray homosexuals in a poor light. I don't know many people who behave in the way they do... casual flings and so forth. It's just wrong.

I'm glad that Nate got his life sorted. I was shocked that Lisa's brother-in-law just shot himself right in front of his wife and Nate. That was unexpected. it will be interesting to see how Lisa's family interacts with Nate and Brenda in the months after this very revealing event.

The season was a little uneven but I am glad I rode it out. The finale was a good pay-off and I'm looking forward to the next season. Well done!

Yay David !
It was good to see him take on the perp that way.

JP, I'm with you in that I'm glad I rode out the season. Bring on season 5, it should be a blast. Claire is ticking me off with her drug use and that's just great, now she's doing Billy Chenowyth. :rolleyes:

Hey, I posted about the new SFU trading cards in the unpopular and unvisited Cards Forum . . . :D . . . I have a few extra sets so if anybody wants one, let me know ! :)

Nate was hitting on a chick rabbi who did a jewish funeral at the parlor.

That rabbi was Molly Parker who played the (twice :D ) widowed Alma Garrett Farnsworth on Deadwood. :)


How could we omit Nate's imagination of the widow as a future Brenda? :eek: Since he hasn't told her about his head issue, it's a BIG plot point.

Yeah, I'd say the head issue was a plot point all the way through season 5. :cry:
