Dude! I remember the transgender subject line from last season. Totally forgot about that.

Season 2 is off to a great start. Just when I thought Mickey couldn't possibly do anything more sleazy than we had seen before, he matched his son against a huge bruiser in a prizefight but bet on the bruiser. The only saving grace was that when Mickey's son called Mickey on his perfidy, Mickey gave the son half of his winnings. What can I say? Mickey is a complicated but compelling guy.

I loved the way Ray covered up how the young girl singer got shot in order to protect his client. That was vintage Ray.

I didn't see the offer of money as genuine. Mickey is just paying him off to shut him up. He believes that money will smooth any problems he has created.

Bunch is easily the weakest link in the family, and anyone might want to use him to get to Ray or the old man. The FBI is just one. Based on the previews it looks like there will be a reporter sniffing around too.

Oh, I agree that Mickey might have been simply paying his son off to shut him up but maybe not. That's why I said that Mickey is a complicated but compelling guy. Nothing about this show and its characters is ever black and white, which is one of the reasons I am so fond of it.

Great song at the end, but I didn't see anything about it in the closing credits.

Does anyone know the name of the song/artist? Thanks!

Why is Terry stalking Abby when she offered herself to him. Is it like a passive aggressive thing?

Maybe I'm mistaken then. I thought last season she opened up and said she loved him.

She did, but she also wouldn't leave her husband. Terry wouldn't touch her again after finding out she was married.

What an episode last night!

I don't want to be the man having an affair with Ray's wife LOL

So who exactly was the large black man that Ray met and conversed with? Either he was an FBI agent or he was in control of the LA parole board?

That reporter is going to find out some stuff! Hope she doesn't get hurt

Ray has stepped up his game this season. Season 2 is off too a great start.
Loved the edition of "Bunk" to season 2.
Also Masters of Sex is a fave of mine but has started slow. My Sunday nights are back.

These are just my opinions.

Ray had them run credit reports on all the parole board staff. He chose the one with obvious financial trouble and that's him.We also saw him briefly in the parole office while Mickey was waiting. I only recognized him becaue that's Wendell Pierce, of The Wire and Treme fame.

I don't see how Ray could hurt his wife during sex. Sure, he likes it rough and hard but I never imagined it would be so force able that she hurts the next day. Could be the aggression that comes with being sexually abused? On the other end, people like Bunch do not have a sex drive due to the abuse. Sad either way.

Re-watched the episode last night. Wonder what's going to happen with the $5 million that Ray failed to get.

Maybe so but it was the parole officer who took it.

Oh Young C, do I have to spell it out for you? It all comes down to lubrication, either natural when the female is turned on, or K-Y. Neither one was in play here because she didn't have time nor did she want Ray to have sex with her, to her it felt like rape so for her it was as dry as sandpaper, thus the irritation.

While I agree with Mylan on what he said, that's not the ONLY reason she could be hurting the next day......Young C, it doesn't have to do with "forcing" either........but alas these are stories for a different forum




Love seeing Wendell Pierce on the show, so far he's fitting right in. Enjoying this season immensely so far.

I fell down when they trotted out Ann-Margaret for that scene. Man, she looked fantastic for 73! I got to work with her about 6-7 years ago in a film called Santa Clause 3, where she played the mother-in-law for a couple of days, and she looked pretty good then.

As far as the show goes, I bet Ray will bump into other wealthy celebrities who will have certain problems that might compel them to donate $5 million in order to make the problem go away.

Agree there, Ray always finds a way to get what he needs. There will be other opportunities to get that money for other people.
