I have been a fan and champion of this show since the first ep; Chloe as Nicki Grant has been on point since day one.

NOT KATHY!!! The only way that could have been more depressing is if the speeding van hit a puppy.

I say Emmy nomination for Ms. Sevigny, amirite?

Wasn’t it Lois the secretary that mowed off the guy’s toes in Mad Men? Now Lois on Big Love chops off a guy’s arm? We also get the same blood spatter shot. I love making connections between these two shows.

The five best words on television: “Very Truly Yours, Hollis Green.”

This show gets better every week and I’m becoming mildly obsessed. And do we ever figure out why Nicki is (birth control) pill popping?

Btw, has anyone noticed the strange visual/professional similarity between Ray (Nicki’s ex-DA/ex-flame) and Dale (AlBy’s lawyer trick)? Funny that brother and sister have the same taste in men.

The old “God Only Knows”/Ice-skating Opening was fraught with risible irony. This new one just makes me want to feel so awfully sorry for everyone on the show.
