Men in Trees: Bed, Bat & Beyond
I think the storyline I liked the most this week was Patrick and Annie's. Derek Richardson (Patrick) does a great job playing stressed out. He doesn't breathe and makes me hold my breath as he's freaking out! Anyway, I liked this because Patrick and Annie became independent together, if that makes any sense. they're starting to figure out how to function as a married couple. I imagine this season will end with a wedding, a baby, and a Marin/Jack reunion cliffhanger.
Marin's storyline was a little too transparent. Her house was her rebound from Jack and she took it too fast. Quite frankly, I was bored with the storyline because it was very obvious from the start what the lesson was going to be here. I did dig the scene with the bear pawing at her bedroom door, though.
The Teresa/Ben/Sarah storyline kind-of fizzled out this week, didn't it? I think the writers may be running out of stuff since they keep bringing closure to their love triangles. Or, maybe this was a love triangle that just needed to be closed. Either way, it was pretty obvious that Sarah was going to start working at the Chieftain and she and Teresa would make peace. Although, I don't understand why Teresa believed Sarah when she said she'd stop persuing Ben because she "respects" their marriage. Wasn't Sarah a hooker? Since when does she respect guys' marriages?
There are just some characters who shouldn't be seen naked and in bed together and those characters are Supervisor Dick and Chief Celia. Marin and Jack? Hot! Jane and Plow Guy? Hot (even if he's still a little creepy)! Mai and Buzz? No thanks! Why? Because they're old. Only the young kids are supposed to be having all the sex. Ok- I'm sort-of kidding here.
