Kismet and I'll Kiss You Back
As we got started this week I wanted to ask if anyone feels that the opening music for the show is a bit out of place. It rings too much like that of Entourage. Like I half expect to see Jimmy, Richard and two of their homies closing the doors to a Model T as they get out.
Speaking of Jimmy, there is some pretty obvious imagery going on with him and all the stuffed animals in the Commodore's parlor. We saw his standing by the bear just like his father did earlier this season and he was also positioned with the lion in the background several times whereas in earlier episodes he was in front of the cheetah/leopard cat. They all seem to reiterate the fact that Himmy has moved up in the word and id the new king of the jungle.Finally Jimmy had to answer for his mom's twisted affection when she planted several kisses on his lips before leaving him and Uncle Junior to talk.
I like the emergence of him as Jimmy's new advisor. We know he's not afraid to take action, but it was also good for him to have someone from the old school to ask for advice. The exchange they had was great, especially when Jimmy let it be known he is not shy on confidence when it comes to his chances.
The eventual standoff with him and the boys from NY was special wasn't it. Meyer is so sharp. Kismet gentlemen. Highlights were Jimmy tellin the mad butcher "you can't kill everyone Manny, it's not good business" and prior to that Richard scoffing at the "muscle" detail consisting of Meyer and Lucky.
We learned Margaret wants to have her Irish potatoes mashed by Sleater. How about the corn flakes she apparently spilled. They were everywhere. George Remus was back referring to himself in the third person. Two things to note there.
First did his new home look familiar to anyone. I thought it possibly was the same set used for Queen Sophie Anne's home in True Blood. Remus did mention he was going for a swim in his indoor swimming pool. Then the Cincy comment from Nucky was amazing...right Mute?
I knew when this "Chip" guy corrected Nucky for calling him Charles or Charlie, that he was they type of cat who would be friends with Marmalard. Despite this joker's lack of experience (and green shoes) he still was able to get Nucky the federal trial he wanted. Couldn't help but think of My Cousin Vinny during that court room scene. Also the look Eddie gave him when he put his arm around him was priceless, like I don't know what kind of pie those fingers have been in but get that shit off of me. When this guy fails Nucky and goes missing they are going to call the cops and give a description of what he was last scene wearing and they are going to ask if he was retarded like they asked Grandpa if Long Duk Dong was.
Sounds like he might be off the hook though if Shooter McGavin wants to keep his Veteran's League scam going. Homework for the week is for everyone to go look up Colonel Charlie Forbes. He was the one they mentioned in the line "there are crooks and then there is Charlie Forbes." The list of bad dudes during this period seemingly has no end.
What is at an end is Van Creepy's lights our love making with his frigid wife. What with Lucy squeezing out their love child all by her lonesome. "WHERE'D YOU GO TO FOR THOSE LEMONS DADDY? FLORIDA?!?!?!?!"
Also while on the subject of Van Alden, did anyone else expect Agent Clarkson to start screaming "Kaiser Soze! Kaiser Soze!" from his hospital bed? That dude was TORCHED!
Chalky is back in business but for how long? How long before Owen sets off a bomb in Margaret's pants? I don't care if little Teddy burns the whole school down, that priest better not get any ideas. Leave the ruler in your pants Padre! That is all I got. I feel like I left some things out but I weant to hear what you all have to say so I'm gonna leave it there. Come and get it.
