Consider what Debbie had been going through (dating an older guy, hooking up in the bathroom), what Lip had been struggling with at school (remember her hanging up when he really needed to talk), as well as everything with Carl and Frank. She doesn't know anything about any of this, has had no impact, positive or otherwise, on any of them. I'd call that an effect in and of itself.

I think Lip and Debbie earlier in the episode (and Sheila all season) were foreshadowing of what happened at the end. Fiona had already been gone in spirit, now she's going to be gone for real.

I was out of town and bored in a hotel Monday night. Was flipping through and ended up on the O.D'd kid episode. Never even heard of the show until then.

WTF.

You have to watch it from the series beginning to get full depth of how fucked up it is. And funny...

I'm not sure I want to. That night I dreamt I was in a big fight with all my friends and my six year old son got jacked in the face and was unconscious.

I'm guessing the two are related.

Wow. Yeah, maybe this one isn't for you. It doesn't get any less disturbing outside of the kid and the Coke. That was a new low...

It is a wildly perverse show. But it's usually perverse in a funny way.

Occasionally, never more so than this week, it's perverse in an 'over the line, Smokey' way. But usually more in a 'man, this family will do anything to get by' way.

It truly is about a family without shame, they'll steal, they'll scam for lawsuits or government $$, they'll deal drugs, eff over their friends, whatever it takes to put $$ in their pocket and stay under the radar.

And you'll marvel at times what they come up with and how brazenly they go about it.

"I pay $50 at the Thai place and they do your laundry."

"Thai whores, stealing jobs from honest Americans."

"Your girls are Russian."

Dr. Archie Grimes LIVES!!

EDIT to add: When Fiona made bail, I was all 'Don't be Mike, Don't be Mike. . . '


It was Mike, what a gold star good guy.

This show punches you on the way down and on the way up.

I gotta give credit, they have dealt with the Fiona fallout flawlessly. It was a gutpunch, but one they followed through on that. Right now Fiona is



But she deserves to be, for a while.

And the follow up episodes have been top knotch.
