Why two political shows in a row? I didn't like it anyway.
Hi Bonnie. Just a friendly question. Is it the channels programming choices, or political shows in general you don't like, or just this one? Did you like the West Wing, for instance? IMO this show has the same potential if the writer/s get it right. (I have nothing to do with the show, I'm just curious about others opinions!)
I'm guessing they paired it with The Good Wife because they thought it would/should attract similar audiences. Given the caliber of actors in the show, I'm also guessing they would love it if this was an awards show for them too, much like The Good Wife.
They paired it with "The Good Wife" because two shows with strong female characters counterbalance Sunday Night Football. My wife is not a football fan, but she enjoyed both these shows last night.
I loved the premiere and can't wait to see what season 6 has in store for us. Finally Cary is a major player and the stakes have upped again. But this time it's all the more because Cary is in freaking jail!! And it doesn't look like he's going to be getting any time soon.

*sigh* emotion gets you killed in situations like these. Eph is dumb af and I would've easily killed my mom and anyone else that became one of those things. Fet and Setrakian are the only ones with any sense. In all honesty if I was Nora i'd probably kill my mom. She is nothing but a hindrance to the survival of the rest of the group and is only going to get weaker and become more of a hindrance.
True, emotions get you killed but they're also what makes us human right? Setrakian has the best grip on the situation, but Fet is a bit too unsentimental. Those types of people don't make or appreciate lasting friendships and will take you out at a moments notice. It's a tough balance but I bet Eph gets there :) Dude you'd kill your mom BEFORE her being infected? That's pretty rough, glad we're not related Ha!
Things really started to get crazy a few episodes ago. I can't wait to see how it all ends. Poor Terry. All he wanted to do was go to Ireland, perhaps he could have hooked up with the Belfast chapter of the Sons of Anarchy.

Also, Jaime's reasons for marrying Claire extend far beyond her personal safety. Not only would Claire be tortured, but the assumption was she would eventually divulge the MacKenzie secrets. Claire knows Jaime is a wanted man and that Dougal is raising money for a Jacobite army. Had Jaime not married Claire, he would have had to run and Clan MacKenzie risked a British attack.
I was sure that Claire was going to confess to lying about enjoying her first time with Jaime, because what woman would have? I appreciated the realism of Jaime's first outing, but please don't try to convince us that their magical, mystical, special connection made up for her being used like a toilet (chamber pot?) and that she liked it.
I kinda enjoyed this episode. No scratch that, i do love this episode. Saibra and Psi is interesting, could they be the new Poster-something-something gang replacement? I do hope so. And as i remembered someone said, s8 is heading towards Classic Who, so be ready for more adventure like this. Love it :)
Yes, a powerful woman is seen as masculine and men always try to put her down by telling her to go back in the kitchen. Dont you remember when Gisele commented something about football and people were asking Tom to control his woman? This is so common.
I do remember Tom being told to control his woman. And agree 100% that women in power are often put down and accused of being masculine. Where it bothered me was that she worried about with her husband who has never given an indication that's the way he sees or treats her. I could see the Chief of Staff accusing her of being masculine and asking her husband if that's how he feels since their sex life has decreased. But it just played as weird conversation between Elizabeth and her husband.
As much as I love this show, I always hate prison arcs. I was actually dissapointed and enough with the firm-politics. That's getting old. For me it left me wondering if I'm gonna continue to watch the show.
You just know Canning and David Lee are going to try to keep Diane from joining Florrick/Argos...................
I love this series. Ray Donovan is the perfect fixer. He'll do anything and everything to protect his clients and his family. I was bothered by the video, because it looks like it only caught Bridget walking away. I hope that Cookie doesn't get it. Ray's son is either pathologically naïve, or stupid. Abby is just Abby. If there was a non-criminal way for her to die of acute lead poisoning it would be a welcome event. Ezra reminds me of the old men who used to live in my neighborhood in New York. They could quote ancient Jewish Law (?), to justify almost anything. Heck, Ezra even had Ray shake down, for the better good, the character played by Ann Margaret. Remember, Ezra's ex-mistress is now his spouse (?). I loved Cochran giving the office eulogy for his poor cuckold subordinate , while it his wife who is lamenting openly the death and not the poor guys widow. Avi will not hurt Kate, because he knows Ray cares about her. Cochran may have to do the deed himself, or he may hold Ray's (Terry) brother from the botched robbery as an inducement for Ray to silence her. Anything goes in this series. I love it.
