If you haven't seen 12/17, don't read this.
Regarding the 12/17 episode:
What I liked:
-Denise Bryson. Who is the actor playing her? He's doing a great job.
I have new respect for Coop, seeing how he handled this situation
and wanted to stay friends with Denise.
-Andy and Dick playing Big Brother, seeing who has the more finely
honed paternal instincts. Poor Nicky, being "parented" by those
two. . .:-)
-Nadine's chasing of Mike. Her casual leg-pumping of 600 pounds
while coyly looking at him was hilarious, as was his stricken look
when she was invited to join the wrestling team.
-Ben and Hank. Especially with Ben watching the movie of the opening
of the Great Northern. Nice touch when he kissed the image of his
mother. I have a feeling that Ben's warning to Hank about
"dancing with the devil" is going to haunt Hank, when Jean
finally screws hm over. . .
-Catherine's crushing of Josie. The rotten Catherine from the beginning
of the first season is back, and I love her! And the surprise ending. . .
What I didn't like:
-The Milford brothers feuding. I haven't really been given a reason
to care about this storyline.
-The rather uninterested way Truman and Cooper are responding to
Major Briggs' disappearence. Shouldn't the military be concerned
that one of their own is missing?
-I had been saying last week that I thought James should either
get a new storyline or get nuked. Well, he got a new storyline.
Undoubtedly, Evelyn Marsh will want to provide him with more
than room and board. Possibly a Lynch version of "The Graduate"?
("Cucucachu, Mrs. Robinson, I mean Marsh. . .") :-) I did like
the music used when James was on his bike, though. . .
