Let's move the discussion over here to the Tuck Season forum, if nobody objects...

Another fun chapter. It seems a little dark compared to how I remember the original version, but that's mostly the not-eating element. Compared to the main storyline right now, all is sweetness and light. Ellen shows, once again, a great ear for dialogue- Sandy actually sounds like she has a bad cold. Most writers don't capture that sort of voice that well, IMO. I though Tuck's method of getting out of dinner was utterly hilarious. I can't wait to see Tuck's rampage through the salon and mall updated. That was fun as heck the first time, and Tuck seems even more out of control in this version than the original.

I think that the lack of control is that Tuck appears more paranoid - no trust of the food and cooking his own in the middle of the night. I just wonder how Jane will confront Tucks issues. In some of the other Seasons stories Art/Diana or Eric/Erika is used for counselling sessions. If that occurs it will be interesting to see if these therapy sessions are more successful than with Shelia.

One other deviation is that Jane has noticed the breast development but is putting it down as Gynecomastia. It will be interesting to see the reaction when they become larger and it becomes obvious that the diagnosis is invalid. I think the hip development came later so might not get commented on.

So now it appears that Sandy's cold may have been a reason for Ellen to delay the mall visit, as opposed to our previous assumption that somebody new would be doing the honors at the shop. If that's the case, it may be really interesting to see what Jane has in store for Valerie in the meantime instead.

We also seem, if I'm remembering correctly, to have a better reason now for the house phone to have been out of order, not to mention something new for Mike to send -- though I'm really intrigued wondering how Val will get to the post office to claim it, not to mention what name it'll be listed under.
