I have not seen season 3 yet; in my Netflix queue. However, when I had HBO I watched season 1 and most of 2; it's been awhile so not everything is clear in my memory. However, I have started over and have to say with only 2 more episodes to go in season 1, I luv Albie, Lois and Niki most of all. The three of them give the show that special intense spark when they are on the screen.
In the end I just hope that Sarah/Heather & Ben/Margene DO NOT HOOKUP. Personally, I do not think there could be two more tired and uninspired teen/young adult pairings; regardless of how much Heather and Ben pine for those other two.
On the otherhand, I would not mind the Eastern European waitress being wife number 4. I really liked her...or they could just kill Margene, moving her up to the 3 spot...plus, Albie+his scheming/totally into him wife+his homosexuality...cannot wait to see how all that turns out.
