Big fan here. I just checked to see if it has been renewed for a second season. No word yet, fingers crossed.

Watched the first episode and thought it was okay. May stay with it as it's the only <30 min show I have on my DVR to watch currently.

Oh it's good but it has a shoe string budget.

I like the story of respect.

These are just my opinions.

Enjoying the show. Ray is terrific, especially when he smile right before he pounces on "someone who deserves it"..

I binge watched the last three episodes and the show is definitely picking up steam. I didn't realize two episodes are airing each week so I was falling behind much quicker than I was aware.

The group therapy scene when Ray was explaining why he hit people was hilarious. And his Christmas present sure came in handy. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how the rest of the series plays out.

Last nights show's were just great. The humor is just so different. The guy's fighting over his cereal was cool. Plus their terms like a bloat in the boot are refreshing. Hope they make more episodes. Who was the actor who played the guy he let go at the end that was expecting a kid' He seem like the guy who played in War of the World in the basement scene where Tom Cruise' Ray' has to kill him.

So only six 20-25 minute episodes? Ending just when it was starting to get interesting? I don't know how Australian TV normally works, but it seems like this was just a test pilot series, or whatever you might call it.

I have to say, I didn't totally understand why Ray let that guy go. Was it just because his wife was having a baby? Or because he has skills/contacts that Ray might be able to take advantage of now that he totally owes him? Ray's motivation in the moment was unclear given how quickly, and without hesitation, he killed everyone else, even Davros.

At any rate, I do hope we get to see more sooner than later.

After second episode I like the off screen ultra violence. Mayhem implied and not shown.

Cant wait ' hope this season's longer though. Really like the first season. Different. What I like is that it is quite realistic unlike some of our show here that have pretty chicks kicking guys asses that are twice as big. So sick of it. Its so far fetch and done to death .

I haven't been able to confirm, but IMDB seems to indicate there will be 8 episodes this season.

This sounds interesting. Is there any way to view it other than FX (which we don't get)?

Season 1 is on Hulu, but I'm not sure if new season episodes will be added weekly or at some point later after the season is over.

It was hard to tell if Ray put the song on because he actually liked it or the song's positive message was meant to distract the punks from what was about to happen to them. At any rate, it was a great moment of dark humor.

I find it interesting that Ray doesn't ever seem to kill people in cold blood himself, like an execution, even though that's his job. It seems most times he's personally killed someone it was in self-defense (like at the end of last season), someone else did the killing and he has to clean it up, or in this instance the deaths were caused by an "accident."

OMG! Ray giving a 'birds and the bees" talk. This show is just too damn good (and funny). Is there really no one else in these forums watching? (besides gibson61)

It's my favorite show on TV.

Loved it when he explained to his girlfriend when your bullied you have to fight or be bullied for the rest of your life.

These are just my opinions.

Each episode has been so different. Last week, that intense deal with the pedophile and the missing girl. This week, the focus on his relationship with his daughter and Ally. And their relationship ending was not what I expected. I always assumed she would find out what he really does and end things.
