kind of similar in feel to season three of breaking bad. it gets even more depressing than the previous season because the flaws of the characters continue to grow while the characters seem to devolve. david continues to invest himself in a seemingly dead end relationship with keith. nate has gotten rid of brenda and tries to fly straight, but he’s just going through the motions and it shows. claire is really the only one who exhibits growth this season and it only seems to really occur in the last few episodes when she dumps her boyfriend and tells her teacher what a douche he is.
things definitely heat up this season with more characters coming in (rainn wilson and ben foster among them) and some things finally coming to a head at the very end of the season.Watched on TV
