Every summer when I watch this show I'm in awe of it. I'm also so very glad it's remained in summer where it can continue to stand proud and above the competition. Take THAT True Detective.
Mickey has delusions of his own greatness as a father. I think it's part of what makes him such a terrible one, is that he actually knows what to do to BE a great one, but cannot follow through. Now that I think of it, perhaps that's why Ray is staying away from his family. He'd rather stay away and be silent than make false promises he knows he cannot keep in his current state. That's what his father did to him. Look how that turned out. The guest stars are just amazing this season. I was shocked when Jack Wagner turned in that chair, but I watch soaps, so he was more recognizable to me. Yeah, I admit that, head held high!
Well, bully for you. I'm singing a mashup of When Doves Cry and the New Zoo Revue. What do I win????? Some of the bear's wine?
I've decided to cut the episodes down to decent moments. I don't think I'm going to be able to circle around and tie them all together with a big bow and find any kind of happy ending in a sensical way, but it's not going to do any good to slam my head against the wall watching the final two, either.
It's a shame Taylor Kitsch's (Paul) return to television has been such an awkward event, because the guy is destined for great things. He just has to stumble a bit more before he arrives. It will be worth it in the long run. Tying the case to the characters in the home stretch (which might be what's coming) won't make the case any more significant. Not the best call. Oh well. Next year. Sophmore slump it is!
Well, wouldn't everybody like the chance to de-brainwash their president? Hell yeah! Now they get the opportunity to have a man running what's left of their country with a clean slate. All in all, it will probably be the best thing for everybody. :-) Bright side!
You and me both. Then I can spend the appropriate amount of time on Ray Donovan, which deserves the attention.
I vary caring about two characters by the week. So, I probably can care about all four, just not at the same time. ;-)
It's gotten to the point it's almost laughable. I read a friend's recap on another site, and I suppose Frank was visiting someone who was related in some way to the sale of the blue diamonds. Or maybe I just conveniently connected those two plots in my head via Frank because I heard the word "kids." Who cares about diamonds that apparently traded hands in the 1992 LA riots?! I don't care about these poor people. Just yikes.
The most fun I had watching the show was reading comments on Twitter. Some of them were great. Ray Donovan is the stronger series, by far, in the hour. I get screeners of that one and so don't watch live. I feel like Ray's getting ripped off.
