Good. No more kinship, no more Junior, no more Ava (although she's dead anyway).
This season in one word...BORING. It seems that the writers don't quite know how they want this thing to end so they are throwing all kinds of filler in to drag the series out until the final ending.The re-located Cullen is boring, the re-located Swede is overdone (and waaay too complicated..master plan?) The former characters and their conflicts were much more interesting and at least believable. The Chinese bad guy ...though a decent villain, is not believable, the guy with eye patch is dull and the young woman pretending to be a man is laughable. The series should have ended with the bear killing Elam instead of having those pathetic episodes that showed him as a crazy guy who is finally killed by his best friend. A bright spot was the guy who played Sidney but sadly, instead of keeping him rolling for a while, he was killed off. I watched this season..hoping the old Cullen would be back as well as some interesting old west action scenes. Instead, it was more like a western soap opera. How sad.
I love this show. It is so refreshing to watch a show that actually makes me think, as opposed to so much of the crap that is inundating TV these days...all the reality junk. I watched Christian Slater's/Mr. Robot's speech to Elliot several times, it was that amazing. I wholeheartedly agree with what he said, too. Rami Malek is just superb as Elliot, and I loved his scenes with Mr. Robot and Joanna. The revel that Elliot has dissociative identity disorder was a little shocking in the last episode. Joanna is most definitely very creepy. I really missed seeing Tyrell, and I hope that he shows back up in Season 2. I hate Philip Price, he is such a cold bastard, so clearly Michael Cristofer is doing an excellent job with the character. I certainly didn't except Angela to take the job, but maybe she has a hidden agenda. I also thought the into with Krista and Lenny scenes were just so-so, and I was surprised that their scenes opened the show. I loved seeing White Rose again, and am interested to know what exactly his allegiance lies. I hope to see more of BD Wong next season.
All season long, I have been wanting to know what it was that forced Elliot into court-appointed therapy, but now I don't know what I want other than for season two to start next week. This has been the best season of Summer television in a very long time.
I agree up to no. 14 (and regarding the The Flash pair -> Iris + Barry is far worse ;)
Absolutely LOVE this show!!! Best show on Showtime and there is 'only one actor' who is capable playing the role of Ray....Liev Schreiber!!! Just as there was only one actor who could play Tony Soprano, James Gandolfini! They ARE & BECOME the characters they play making them believable along with amazing hit shows!! Have Showtime's 'Ray Donovan' since S1, an avid viewer who always wants more.... Love the show & to the author of this article, 'job well done'......
What I thought was ridiculous was Julie and Charlie scheming in front of a huge glass wall with the Humanichs casting suspicious glances at them. None of them thought to do what Lucy did, and use that lip-reading program to spy on those two while they were hatching their plans? I hope JD survives. I really like him. But then I liked Toby too, and look what happened to him.
It's illegal for a patient and doctor to get involved. Sorry people but it's just not going to happen.
didnt even realize how much she looks like Angelina Jolie untill that scene outside, I dont know if it was the way she was lit in the apartment ( it was always dark in there) but my god She is a beautiful women and very Very good.
I don't like how Bassam treats Leila, even though she has been complicit in so many evil deeds. He should be nice to her. Honestly, I am not a fan of the acting by Adam Rayner. I don't like the way he emotes accept for when he is with Dayliah and his son and maybe his brother. He is near lifeless in just about every other sequence. He was okay as military leader but seems uncomfortable most of the time. Maybe in the end it is just great acting. Additionally, I am over Molly, neutral on Sammy and would have loved a more prominent role for Emma. She would have been a better rebel than her brother. In fact, I am over how they write the American side of Bassam's family. I know USA is the direct/indirect cause of so many questionable things going on in the world. Yet, we happen to be other things too. The writing for Bassam can be frustratingly wishy washy. Sometimes you just want the man to take a hard line here and there. At least Jamal has shown love, compassion and mercy along with his psychotic side.
Unfortunately for the show (but good for her) the actress who played Emma secured a role on ABC's upcoming Wicked City. I was happy that they at least discussed her in the finale; hopefully if the show gets renewed she may be available for some episodes or the role could be carefully recast. I agree that she initially would have been the better/more obvious choice to go and join the rebellion, but the writers made it work with Sammy.
