Nancy Botwin is the perfect character, you love her, but sometimes want to slap her. Parker is an amazing actress and makes this show work from beginning to end. I also love her youngest Shane, he's excellent this season and glad to see him getting more and more airtime. This show is both funny and heartbreaking and blows most shows on TV right now out of the water.
I'm really excited to see how season 4 plays out. I think it's a great sign that they are breaking out of the "little boxes."
Don't listen to the negative reviews. If you liked season 1 and 2 you will love season 3!
We begin the season with our protagonist, Nancy, being held at gunpoint in a standoff between two drug gangs, a tense situation that is resolved in a fairly lame fashion. She then becomes the pupil of a violent gangster who treats her like his little sister, after suggesting to another character that he intends to rape her, but this plot line too is just dropped.
A ridiculous subplot about Nancy Botwin's brother-in-law being accepted into the army, with a wound that would clearly exempt him from service (missing most of the toes from one foot), again goes nowhere, being dropped almost immediately.
I love this show and even found some humor in the antics of the characters in the third season, but the story telling in this season could have been so much stronger.
One hopes that the fourth season will turn out better.
For starters none of the characters are very likable. The characters have always been different shades of gray (which is what has always made them so interesting), but with season 3 several of the characters just become too unlikable to make me care about them. I always found Nancy likable enough, and her story interesting enough, that her story was enjoyable to follow. Not so with season 3. Nancy is annoying, overly-promiscuous, arrogant, a bad parent, and nearly void of any and all morals. She just doesn't have enough redeeming qualities for her to remain a good protagonist. In fact, I can't think of any redeeming qualities the character has this season. Maybe persistence? That still isn't anywhere close enough to make up for scene after scene of Nancy constantly, and uncaringly, hurting the people around her. (Also, she usually follows up by throwing a temper tantrum and trying to blame the other person, and even though the other characters sometimes buy her blame-reversing rants, her logic just never seems to work as well from this side of the screen.)
Writing-wise season 3 is also much more inferior to the first 2 seasons. Several of the stories end up going nowhere and serving no purpose other than to be cute; the way new characters are introduced is always sudden, stupid, and contrived; and several characters throughout the season behave in such unbelievable and absurd ways that it makes it hard to go along for the ride.
I thought the first two season were really clever, with season 3, however, it seems they've turned it all in for cheap laughs.
The one redeeming thing about the show is the ending.Read more ›
