Why do I root for you so? Is it because of your lustrous hair and skin, your gorgeous eyes and cute dresses and jeans? Is it the way you're always casually--and noisily--sipping some icy drink from a straw? Is it because you are white and middle class and a woman and in there mixing it up with some major drug czars, a woman who seems to not know wtf she's doing but is really often shrewd about her place in it all? Is it because all of your partners in crime are frequently good looking and also at times compelling (including, in season 4, your son Silas? when did he have time to get all buff while you were fleeing from the burning agrestic)?
And/or is there a deeper feminism at work in your show, in that it stages the desperation, heightened now by current economic conditions, of a woman who has relied on her husband for income and whose options are seemingly slim after that husband dies? Is it that once you got a taste of drug dealing you just can't quit it, and that fact that while I don't really comprehend it on some level I guess I do? Is it the constant drama presented by your work, and the charming losers with whom you are surrounded?
It's a little bit of all these things, I think. And the excellent writing for season 4 does not hurt. Not one bit.
p.s. given your new, ahem, business arrangement (middle of season 4), you should probably learn spanish, funny as it is that you're always just saying "hola" and using unconjugated verbs.
pps your hot son is banging the mother of the kid next door. i thought you might want to know.
