  • Pretty hilarious!

    The character edevelopment on this episode was better, with an interesting storyline and development for Cricket in particular. The secens at the church singles group were executed to perfection, and were downright hilarious at times!

    Some great one-liners, the Texas Chilli Service phone call thing was hilarius as a previous reviewer pointed out, and I really enjoyed it all up!

    It's a promising show, and although it's gone, I think I'll enjoy what I have yet to see! :)moreless
  • Good, solid episode that added depth to the characters and story lines.

    - What a great episode, I love this show already. Its trashy, it always manages to be campy, funny and so over the top.

    - We are slowly getting some depth of character and the unspooling of story lines. I liked the fact that they are not dragging them out.

    - The Texas Council Culinary Hotline scene was hilarious.

    - Annie Potts is awesome.... We need more of her. I also like Cricket.

    - Bill being alive would be a great season finale cliffhanger. I just hated it as the episode ending, as it was sort of vague.

    - They have to work on Amanda, she's not very interesting.

    - have to say, I really like Blake and Cricket's relationship. The discussion in the bedroom at the end was so sweet. Now, I know he should not be closeted, she should be in a healthy relationship, etc but couples stay together for worse reasons and they clearly really respect each other. Besides, she spelled it out at the end of the episode: stating that not even her father really loved her (or something to that effect... she may be too fragile (or becuase of her daddy issues think she is) to trust herself even long enough to play the field and say she finds 'the real one' if she faced the issues that Carlene and Sharon have faced so far in the last 2 episodes she might crack completely


    the Texas Chili Council phone conversation was great, it made my day :)

    La pinata at the end was so much fun too ^-^

    Even though I don't think this is gonna last more than the 10 first episodes at least it's becoming almost pleasant unlike earlier episodes, hope it goes like this in the last episodes!!!

    • Gigi: (after Amanda walks into the house with the pinata) What the heck is that?

    • Blake: Carlene has enough tongue for ten rows of teeth and she's gonna be wagging it all over town.

    • Carlene: Now, ladies and gentlemen, the Bible tells us that loves you just the way you are. But I'm here to tell you, he'd prefer you if you's married. Anyways, that is what we're trying to do. (circling the SIN from the word SINGLE on the white board) Take the sin out of being single.
