I'm hugely fond of this particular breakdown, but it's definitely nostalgia-tinged as this is when I properly became hooked on the series first time round.The countdown to Patricia 1.0's exit has begun, and maybe it's because I'm eager to start with the new season but somehow I find it all a bit exhausting.
It just feels like one nervous breakdown too many.
Funny you mention this, because there's an almost identical sequence with another character later in Season Four with very similar results.Carlyle's goons manage to locate and kidnap Patricia, and they take her into the woods to execute her Adriana "Soprano" style.
This is a very exciting sequence, but suddenly the goons turn into the incompetent Jasper & Horace from 101 Dalmatians, which gives Patricia the opportunity to escape.
Again, this convenient practice has re-emerged in Season Four with another character. Except the newer one is even more silly because numerous other main characters also live in the same building.He tells David that he has his flat and practice in the same building.
David thinks that's convenient, and I'm sure the set designers agree with him.
Not like a 1970s British sitcom star?Ross Newman, who looks like a 1970s schlager singer with a sinister vocal fry.
It makes him Dr Ackerman.Well, it sort of is that idea, except that Ross is working for Carlyle in order to pay off his gambling debts, and that makes him kinda ordinary and a little less creepy.
I've already made my feelings on Alan's unlikely ladykiller status and incessant lip smacking perfectly clear, so I won't wake that beast again.Karen's son Alan turns out to be a mini-Wayne, an obnoxious heir to the Brandon fortune, which is why Karen contacted him in the first place.
He's sort of hanging out with Jill but also very interested in Amanda, much to Mitch's chagrin.
