Save your money for something good and enjoyable
Good concept, poorly executed.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
Very good series, I am fascinated by the character played by Liev Schreiber.
I hope that for the sixth season Ray overcomes the death of his wife.
Love the characters, the twists, the emotion etc..
As much as I can write opinions on a bad show. I have to give credits to this one. Was not sure about ( Spoiler alert) the way they killed Abby.. but it was done nicely, in context and gracefully. I hate back, reverse, in the past with flash backs story but it all worked good. The writers on this show deserve great compliments for not taking us (the idiots that think they know about writing) like idiots. Good job writers... Can't wait to see your next project
I loved the first show so much i decided to keep Showtime after my free trial. By Season 3 i regret it. In the middle of season 3 Abby says the 'f' word each time she speaks and many of the other characters do also. I measure of show by the necessity of putting the 'f' word in the writing as a contrived filler. As in life, the more the 'f' or 'c' words are used the more of an illiterate , ignorant low life a person is. I love vulgarity but it's not power packed unless used rarely and wisely. I wish Mickey would have been killed of long ago because he's boring. All the brothers but Ray are dunces by Season 3. They all say they hate Mickey and say they'll stay away from him yet they let Mickey step on them episode after samo samo episode showing what masochists they all are. Abby started out hot, strong and cool and now she's a trite foul mouthed weakling. Stale is the word to describe the series now. Not even someone with good ADHD, like me, can be sucked in anymore. There are always, at least, 5 soap opera plots going on with these fine actors having sloppy writing and poor plots to burden themselves with. Even Ray's looks and overly nonchalant behavior get weary. Mickey is simply irritating and , mostly , the whole darn show lacks credibility. But, since i'm stuck with the subscription for a month i'll trudge my way through it. Sad. i'M STILL trying to watch this but they are getting worser than worse with every Donovan getting stupider and studpider. Ray and Terry Donovan are as dumb as fence posts. Whewie
