    Excellent writing, location, and cast. Must disagree about Celia Weston as Paula Ann Hendricks, Dwight’s mother; we think she is a gem of an actress and interjected not too much or too little. We hope that this show runs for a lone time!

    I love the show and am a fan of Jason Lee. He is a very talented actor, comedian and singer. I do have a tiny gripe, though. In last week’s show Jason makes reference to the “Immaculate Conception.” The producers should look up what this Roman Catholic doctrine is about. He referred to a female character getting pregnant without a man, hence “immaculate.” That is not what the doctrine is about. It means that Mary, herself, was conceived by her parents, Anne and Joachim, without original sin. Her conceiving Christ is called the “Annunciation” celebrated March 25, nine months before Christmas. Mary’s conception is celebrated on December 8 and her birthday on September 8.
