The season premiere, which deals with Nate’s impending birthday, and various antics of the crazy Darling family, is filled with action and I think it’s some of the best work since the show started. Nate and Lisa are having problems, she’s off kissing Jeremy, who’s off flirting with new cast member Lucy Liu. Karen is off sleeping with Simon Elder, but still in love with Nate who almost acts on his apparent love for her, and she ends up stealing something from Simon to give to her father. Meanwhile, Patrick is off dealing with something rather unethical stuff with Tripp, and Nate gets himself inadvertently involved. Juliet’s absence is barely noticed, and the end was a nice little cliffhanger that should set the show up for a great season 2.
The show is on a short leash, because there are a lot of great other shows taking up my TiVo space right now, but so far, it’s got me intrigued, and I’ll come back for another week!
