Default Why the heck did Nell become so violent between seasons 3 and 7?

My God! Her temper got really bad. I still remember her and Addy in that physical catfight in season five when they were shoving and pushing each other. Addy pushed Nell to the couch were she rolled around and then later Nell body slammed Addy to the couch. It's even in the opening of the show's credits. Nell pushed people hit people with flowers, pies in faces, pushing people in the closet. Etc. Did losing that weight at the beginning of season three make Nell cranky or what? Or was it because there was new theme song?

BTW, Excuse the error in the topic section. It should read
"Seasons 3 and 6".

Default as you describe them, I can see them clearly

Yep, Nell was definitely a candidate for some serious anger management. I mean, it's for comedic and slapstick purposes, but seriously now, she needed to calm down sometime.

I was like, "dang, calm down, lady!" It was overbearing for me to watch sometimes.

I find it interesting that you would mention anger management. I belong to an organization that offers group therapy for people who need help with anger management!

I noticed this too. The first 2 seasons are my favorites and I also liked Season 3, but she was so mean at times it was hard to enjoy the show after that. They never should have changed her character.

I must have watched because I just checked the old thread that Pav created to announce the marathon and I responded saying I will watch

So Maybe I forgot to watch it or just don't remember
