That was some long struggle.

The scenes with Ian and the baby on the lam were difficult to watch. Glad he was finally committed to get some real help.

This is the only show I watch that feels like an hour.

Fiona is one hot mess.

She's just like Frank, except she uses sex and not booze and drugs to wreck her life.

She must be biologically incapable of becoming pregnant because there is no other way she wouldn't have four or five kids by now.

well... the focus paid to the whole love making just makes me think that the bigger conflict will be on who's kid she'll be knocked up with. Cause you know they're going to have to go to that now.

I have to say that Mickey is one of the best, most layered 2nd tier characters on television right now. He has evolved yet is still a scum bucket. I actually got a little choked up when he was saying goodbye to Ian. It's an extremely complicated but well written relationship.

The actor playing Mickey really does a fantastic job and I never hear anything about him.

And fuck the Steve/Fiona storyline. It's already old.

I do think it's funny how Fiona cheats on every nice/good guy she dates.

That's because she's a slut and is essentially trash.

I found it funny when Lip tells Gus not to fuck up his marriage to Fiona and that she's great - when he really should be saying that to Fiona.

i hope crazy carrot boy gets the help he needs. when he was tossing the hand whore's son in the air i was cringing.

makes sense they go with whose baby is it, gus or stevejimmy. maybe keep gus around into next season then reveal not his kid. i guess when the kid emerges with a five clock shadow and not a hipster beard there is no turning back.

That was clearly a prop baby that Ian tossed up, they changed the angle so it's completely dark. They then cut to the real baby and Ian merely raised arms up and did not actually toss him.

At this point I pretty much have zero sympathy for Fiona as a character. She's basically a self destructive moron.

Yea that's how it works most of the time. She's just like Frank as someone pointed out.

Follow someone stupid home, see if someone stupid don't answer the door.

Or she's a character in a television show where the rules of reality don't apply.

Now that Jimmy/Steve/Jack's out of there, of course she's going to be knocked up.


Come on, it's right there and the writers can not not swing at it.


The lip stuff comes off as silly as Lip is a scamming brain power house. You think he couldn't get himself out of debt quickly?
