I've looked around, but I haven't been able to find anything... the season finale seemed to wrap up pretty well everything while keeping very few arcs open. Along with the rather short season... any idea if it's going to be renued for a fourth?
Anyway, season three was probably my favorite of the bunch. While a few of the episodes near the beginning felt kind of slow at times, they really began to pick up near the end. I just LOVE the camera work that they do during all of Ted's trips. Really creepy stuff.
So... Brian's getting really, really soft in his old age. I like that he finally decided to play nice openly, but... that really doesn't leave him very far to go. Until, say, Justin proposes to him or something (though it seems Justin is kind of over that idea lately). Speaking of Justin, did he just vanish as soon as he and Brian got back together? And I wouldn't have minded a little bit of Ethan follow-up... but I guess that really wouldn't have added much.
I really dug all the Michael-Ben arcs this season. I wasn't really interested in them much in season 2, but they really brought something interesting to the show. They were, well... sane, not flaming, not sex-crazed... 'real' TV people. It was nice... they always brought the down-to-earth element to the show.
The whole election thing... I don't know... I think it was built up too much. The payoff certainly was great (Brian being openly nice), but... I felt it ran a little long.
All in all, I hope there's another season in the works as the show's done nothing but get better as it progresses...
I thought it was an OK season. Like most other straight men out there, I, of course, mainly watch for the hot lesbo scenes. I'm completely in love with Mel.
Ted & Emmet kind of sucked, and they shouldn't have gotten together. They could have done the cracked-out Ted storyline without it. The ending was a little too perfect.
Brian & Justin kind of sucked also. At least Justin dropped Ethan, who was far and away the most annoying little twerp on TV.
Hunter, Ben, and Michael. I dug this one, mostly because Hunter absolutely cracked me up. The whole election/murder mystery kind was real unrealistic and kind of reminded me of a Law and Order episode. All in all, better than season 2, but not as good as season 1.
