Tonight I figured out what makes a TV show awesome, its DENNYS. Breaking Bad Denny's, RD, Denny's. I knew Rays NFL deal would go south, but for crying out loud, already? Bunchy and that chick, I cant stand her character, she needs to go.

Paige is damaged goods. You feel sorry for her but I don't think we've seen her at her worst yet plus she is very attractive. Abby said what are you doing with these people to Ray and yes she's right. Andrew is a monster and Ray's dysfunctional family has met his match. Bunch confessing the murder is going to be the Donavan undoing before the series is over. An attention getting and fast show's tells you how good this is.

Exactly! I was waiting for his new friend to say "Games up, I'm an undercover cop."
Bunch is just so depressed and lonesome that he felt the need to open up to a new friend. They have a connection now.

I wish the woman in my life came back to me like that. That stuff only happens in movies

Ray's 'change for the better' didn't last very long; he can always work for Avi. Last two eps were terrific.

My wife raves about his role in Deadwood, which I don't watch. His performance in Ray strongly resembles Pacino's in Devil's Advocate.

Yes! I've mentioned this before. Even better, most people on TV drink straight whiskey.

I always figured Ray was going for the 5 o'clock shadow look and thus uses an electric shaver that leaves the stubble .. is that not the hip look these days .. ?? I am a regular bourbon drinker and have been for 50 years now, never caused me to become over weight ..

Ian McShane is 5' 9". Next to Ray at 6' 3" with 1" boot heels makes him look smaller than he really is.

We (the viewer) haven't been shown the true identity and/or intent of the "Father Romero" character, right? First, he seems like a creepy stalker guy; now he's Bunchy's murder confidant? This can't be a good thing.

"I'm glad you told me that." Perhaps he works for the Vatican?, nah.

Nobody's talking about Terry?

He almost shot his dad! Having the prison gang after him isn't good.

He initially introduced himself as a Servant of the Paraclete.
Its hard to say what spin a TV show might put on that organization, but if he is then he could have been working with the late priest as a councilor or the like. Or they sent him out to see what happened to the priest. In any case the Servants have no connection to law enforcement.


Adding that I'm pretty sure I would never want to have McShane yelling at ME like that. That man can yell.....

He's losing it, but with who may be after him I don't blame him for being paranoid. But it sure was a "Holy!!!" moment.

I don't like the wrestling chick either. She seems like a b!tch and Bunch proposing to her just made him seem pathetic. I don't know where that storyline is headed but for right now it's not my favorite.

You know you're getting old when the candles on your birthday cake cost more than the cake itself. Crap I say

Great point; it's too late for them to recover the settlement money. He could be an ecumenical equivalent to RD. Do you live near Jemez Springs?

That was too soon. Like she said, they've known each other for weeks (or months.) Bunch is just infatuated with her and said the biggest thing to try and keep her around.

I liked his previous crush last year. The one with the kid.

Not my cup of tea, but she does have a unique approach to foreplay.

Bunchy, AKA Brendan .. obviously does not get out much .. the Lucha Libre girl I can't quite figure out yet .. first, it's a scam to promote a "series" using Bunchies money, then, she blatantly goes after Bunch in a Dominatrix style scene, then, the Wrestlers split, Bunch hunts her down and proposes .. it seems that maybe she's serious and the scam is out the window ..


Terry is just a flat out mess at this point .. it seems to me the only way out is to get out of town, if in fact, the Aryan Brotherhood is really after him, which I'm still uncertain of ..


And, I have to ask .. why can't the deal on the Team still work .. ?? I don't get why, once the wrong Governor was elected, the whole thing went down the tubes .. ?? Don't they still own the Franchise .. ??

@MGK they needed the governor and his group to get everything "passed". They were basically greasing the wheel with his group and had all of their eggs in one basket.

Yeah, I understand that, but they still own the Team, right .. ?? And who's to say they can't get done what needs to be done with the new Gov .. ??

Right now, my local Team, The St Louis Rams, are in flux due to the NFL basically holding the team hostage over a Stadium Upgrade demand .. the local Politicos and Honchos are blatantly willing to just about sell their own soul to get the Team to stay in St Louis and do a new Stadium build (the Dome is about 20 years old but very well maintained) ..


That's why I figured any area in the USA that would have a chance at a Franchise would do whatever it took to keep it there .. no matter who the Governor was ..

Great post!

You think Terry is imagining those small weights? Or it's somebody playing a joke on him. Looks certain enough that they're after him.

Turner Field kaput at 20 as well. Extortion at its highest level.

True story about stadium politics and local honchos. Approximately 18 years ago in a 30th floor office near one where an ex-NY Giant almost pushed his 'financial advisor', another former high-round pick NFL'er, out a stationary window, a locally connected 'gentleman' pointed to a wooded parcel near a major intersection toward the direction of Kennesaw Mountain and claimed it will become the site of the new Braves stadium. When I countered they just moved into the Ted, he quickly replied wait and see. New Braves stadium to be built in the exact location he identified.

Not to betray my age or naivety, female govs could be more inclined to claim fiscal responsibility in that situation.
