Is it my imagination or has interest in this show declined lately on the Dope? In any case, I think tonight’s episode was a great one. The ending was a shocker - logically, it made sense, but I never expected Roman to be shot. I hope he’s not dead, because the show would suffer hugely if such a great character were removed.
Man, Hollis Green is hilarious. I love his bizarre way of talking on the phone, and his facial expressions. His character is like someone in a David Lynch movie. I hope he’s not out of the show completely (looks like there’s going to be a Waco-like battle between his camp and the ATF in the next episode - here’s hoping he’s not shot to death.) By the way, in the last discussion we established that Selma Green was female, but in this episode Hollis refers to “my brother Selma.” What’s with that? Is transvestitism/transexualism the “perversion” that Roman spoke of?
The incident with Ben proposing to his girlfriend - whoa, daddy! This kid has got some issues. Well, anyone would, I guess, in his situation, but he seems to be absorbing the worst elements of Bill’s lifestyle. “If it doesn’t work out and I fall in love with another girl, I could just make her my second wife!” Yeah, that’s the ticket.
The oral sex with Nikki just made me think of The Brown Bunny. I would love to see Vincent Gallo make an appearance on Big Love. It would be hilarious if he played an East Coast hipster passing through town on a cross country drive in a brown van, or something.
