Already? Now I almost feel silly for deleting Day 7 after 20 minutes. Then again if we're this close to the season finale, I can't imagine they can do anything to save this show for me. I liked a couple episodes, but most of it I'm just waiting for them to get to the point and I'm not sure they have one.

Seriously, somebody should just kill Cissy and put her out of her misery. Is anybody honestly THAT pissed off CONSTANTLY? She's getting more annoying every episode. Other than her, I thought this was a decent ep, not sure WTF all those stick figures are supposed to be.

The preview seemed to give away quite a bit.

Missed John this week, I for one love his seemingly pointless one-liners.

This show is beginning to bore me. I hate most of the side characters and feel like muting the tv whenever Cissy comes on. Christ, enough with the shouting.

Worst episode yet. This show sucks without John. Also they keep introducing new characters without resolving anything at all...

Yaaaaaaawwwwwwnnnnn!

What was the previous post? An HBO employee plug?

What a boring episode. At this point, I'm pretty much hoping it won't make another season, and that maybe there will be time to resurrect the Deadwood movies. It's killing me hearing all the Deadwood type dialog, without Deadwood.

*edit* The previous post I referred to has been deleted. I was NOT referring to Blaster1's post.

Cissy has done the impossible, she has replaced Shaun as the character that I would most like to see die a painful death.

This episode was horrible.

I don't know Butchie instead.

This show has turned into somewhat of a disappointment for me (by episode 4, actually), but one more episode to go, might as well finish it up next week.

Hopefully, "Seanie" is just at acting class.

I love Trixie and all...but is she even trying to cover up her native Irish accent? I can't decide if she's supposed to be American or Irish.

As only an occasional viewer, could somebody tell me why all of the side characters 'care' so much about Sean?

Dunno, but I just chuckled when she plopped her boobs on the back of the webmaster's head.

Good question. They haven't really explained why for most of them. The doctor cares because he walked away from death and I guess Kai cares because she is a long term friend of the family. The others? Who knows? They just keep adding more and more characters and all of them seemingly have no direction...

Yeah, we have "the Mexican, the doctor, and the homo", and now we have the Chemist, the stick figures, a teddy bear, and an Avon catalog thrown in the mix.

Despite the absence of John, I still enjoyed this episode.

Some of the others could be explained by Shaun being around the motel with Butchie if Butchie had been staying there a while. One of those "you kind of look out for the neighbor's kids" kind of things. No idea on the millionaire though.

Why in the high-holy-hell did they cast Rebecca DeMornay in the role of "Cissy"? She's so horrible on several levels. She over-acts on an obnoxious level. I just want to punch her in the face. Every time she yells "Shaun!!!!" I think of Michael from LOST. Ugh.

I'm more inclined to blame the writers, I don't believe that it was her choice to play it so over the top.

Yeah, I mean I think we're supposed to dislike her, all of the other characters constantly reference how annoying she is. Being obnoxious fits the part they want her to play.

And that is the way she wants it (nobody to stand her enough to get close to her) after she jerked off Butchie, according to John

I understand that she is supposed to be an obnoxious bitch, but dI still think that she is playing it a bit too over-the-top.
