True Detective – Episode 8 (Season Finale) Omega Station

Spoiler Alert – Everything is ending. Time to wake up. – Frank

I’m not going to hide it but I am really disappointed in this season finale for Season Two of True Detective. I am defiently having mixed feelings about this episode. Personally, I thought this season of TD was quite stellar with the new editions of Colin, Vince, Taylor and Rachel. Along with the new location in Los Angeles and a new crime to solve, it was pretty interesting to watch. Although there were many critics, who thought this season did not match up to the caliber of last season of True Detective. TD had it’s up and downs but it manage to bounce back before the season ending. The episode before this was a good one even though we had to watch the heroic Woodrugh go out in a tough way. I guess going into the last episode of True Detective, I was hoping for a better ending for the rest of the cast but I guess the writers wanted to keep it real and show you what would have really happened and not some Hollywood bullshit ending.

I’m not going to go into detail in what happened during the season finale because I want the rest of the readers to make a judgement call themselves if they like the ending of True Detective this season but I think you’re smart enough to know that a lot of the characters didn’t make it out of this episode. I loved the whole episode all the way up til the last thirty minutes, then it became all to predictable. Ray had to say goodbye to his son even though he didn’t have any time to waste, which lead to his death and Frank trying to tie up loose ends trying to get away from his gangsta past but it finally caught up with him with the cartel, stabbing him leaving there to walk the desert like some sorta of atonement for his sins. Then you got Ani, who she finally met someone as fucked up as herself but it is taken away from her immediately. Leaving her with Frank’s widow in some foreign country telling their stories to a reporter, hoping for some justice.

But I get it.

This world is fucked up with bad people doing bad things, which good people don’t get the justice they deserve. But fuck man, sometimes I’m just a sucka for a story book ending.

75

Don’t get me wrong, I love stories where the hero or the anti-hero doesn’t make it in the end, but I was hoping and pulling for Ray and Frank to get out of the shit storm they were dealing with this season. It was just so anti-climatic the way they went out in the end, but I guess we never envision how it would really go down in the end. As Frank tells Ray, “Did you ever picture your life going this way?”

I might have to watch again but right now I’m feeling a bit let down. Regardless, I still think this season of True Detective as a whole was terrific with amazing acting and great storylines. Colin Ferrell is never bad in anything he does, Taylor Kitsch performance was great showing all of us why he’s more than a pretty face just like Rachel McAdams, which I think she finally shed that funny cute girl persona that we all know her from with this gritty performance this season. But I think the best performance this season, has to go to Vince Vaughn, which he absolutely killed it after his slow start during the season, he came out strong in the end. We saw him thriving on top of the mountain, only to be thrown back to the bottom with the wolves but he showed us why he was on top of the mountain in the first place. I loved seeing Vince in funny movie roles but I can’t wait to see him in more serious roles because he has the acting chops to do so.

I guess in the end the critics where right. This second season of True Detective would not live up to expectations to the first season. But the first season of TD was so amazing, just trying to attempt another season of that caliber is insane and ballsy. As Norman Vincent Peale, the author of Positive Thinking, eloquently puts it,

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

Is that much better than being down here with the mortals? At least up there, you’ll live forever. Congrats to the writers and cast members of True Detective for a wonderful season. RIP Ray and Frank, I hope they are sharing a bar booth together in hell or heaven with that depressing bar singer, drinking shitty beer and Black Label goodness.

Fu’s Observations:

  • Who had a better fucked up story? Ani’s weird cabin abduction with uncle creepy or Ray’s I shot the wrong dude story. Also, was this foreplay or high-level awkwardness after motel sex.
  • Frank had a touching scene with his wife at the train station, but throwing the big ass rock was insane.
  • “You can’t act for shit.” Frank’s wife – You bite your tongue woman before he motor boats the shit out of you
  • Vince Vaughn I believe had the best lines this season besides Colin Ferrell. Also, he had the most guns. All those guns and he used like two in the cabin scene. “Never lay down for anyone.”
  • Great short scene with Frank and Ani as Frank thinks Ani is a cop: “What gave me way? My Tits?”
  • Ray shows love for Frank as Ani asks about his gangsta buddy: “He’s actually a good guy.”
  • Did Ray’s son try to trade his father’s badge in that game of Life?
  • Damn it I can’t believe that ginger bastard is not Carrot Top’s son!
  • If you found Ray’s phone, would you delete the message or send it. I think it would have been dope if you were high as shit listening to Ray rambling on being lost in his life.
  • Woodrugh gets a highway named out of him, so his widow can look at it crying every time she drives over to collect her welfare checks.
  • Ani is going to be a great mom. She’s going to teach his son the Art of the Bushido and how kill a man under three minutes.
  • The sprawl of Los Angeles made me fall in love with this fucked up city again, even though I would leave in a drop of hat if I had another opportunity but I will always call this fucked up place, home.

True Detective – Episode 7 Black Maps and Motel Rooms

Spoiler Alert – Being in the closet might Kill You

With only two episodes left of True Detective, this episode did not fail to meet our expectations for the show because it was simply so entertaining and suspenseful. I was at the edge my seat this whole episode after the last episode with the sex party orgy, which I watched several times for clues about the case of course for the show. (You perverts) The League of Justice are dealing with the aftermath of what they did, which was saving a girl, grabbing information about secret land deals and killing a man with a butter knife. The mark of a good story, show or movie has always been when they kill a likeable character in order to better the storyline making the entire piece more believable and entertaining. This second to last episode of TD had everything you wanted in an episode including those devious plot twists.

Starting with the full-blown gangsta Frank Semyon, played by Vince Vaughn, who had the best performance besides from Taylor Kitsch because he finally embraced what he really is, which is a gangsta but still hates being called that. After beating and killing is former BFF, he finds out that everyone is out to get him from the start. He tells his boys to “lock it up” and “batten down the hatches,” cause Hurricane Frank is coming for everyone as he gets his ducks in a row. He tells his wife to go on an extended vacation because he has to clean house before he goes on his going away voyage. I loved seeing Vince being a tough guy in this episode even though I laughed each time he delivered a tough guy line. I can’t wait what he has in store for us in the finale, which I hope he starts wearing that “Fuck You,” grille. The other two gangstas aren’t feeling so gangsta at all because Ray and Ani are feeling like they have been played.

Ani is dealing with the fallout with being in that sex party being drugged, remembering a painful memory that she suppressed, which brought up some fucked up feelings. She shared those feelings with her holistic hippy spiritual nut of a father but he just regretted not taking those knives away from her. To make it worse the girl who Ani saved tells her that she wasn’t forced to be there. She liked having gross European men over the age of 50 gangbang her all over a weird cabin in the woods. She tells her family that they are not safe and need to leave ASAP Rocky.

75

Meanwhile, Ray is still trying to be a good guy for change as he stops Ani’s sexual advances for him when she was high on molly, which was pretty impressive to see coming from Ray. But I guess I wouldn’t be turned on as well, after seeing Ani kill a man under 3 minutes. It’s like getting a hard-on watching Ronda Rousey beat the shit out of some under qualified competitor. Ray and Ani put the pieces together as he tries to present the case to the State Attorney but someone caps her with one of Ray’s guns totally making Ray and Ani as the fall guys. Ray and Ani are fugitives, which they have to rely on Woodrugh because he’s the only clean one now. But as all know now that Woodrugh has plenty of ghosts in his closet, which can scare anyone.

Woodrugh gets a sexted with a picture of his Marine buddy, playing Battlefield with their penises. If you didn’t understand that picture Brokeback Mountain as Marines and Woodrugh being a sergeant having to physically discipline his soldiers HARD. (Sorry, I had to.) As he gets closer in solving the case he gets black mailed with the pictures with his buddy. Woodrugh feels like his cover has been blown so he brings his trailer trash mom and baby mama to a motel room for old school romantic movies and room service. I believed Taylor Kitsch gave his best performance besides the episode with that wicked street gunfight, in which his performance tonight was so good. You could feel every emotion coming off him. This whole season he was running away from his demons. He even wanted to kill himself a couple of times this season, but in the end just like the rest of all of us. We all want to live. Woodrugh gets trapped by a secret catalyst security force, which he has to fight out again in order to survive. I don’t know about you but I wanted him to survive because it seems like he just had a really shit life and he was just started a family. But life isn’t fair and only bad men get away with it in the end.

I loved the homage to season one of True Detective as Ani tells Ray that he isn’t a bad man, which Ray replies that I am a bad man. In season one Martin asks Rust this question, which Rust replies giving the tone of season.

Martin: You wonder ever if you’re a bad man?


Rust: No I don’t wonder Marty. The world needs bad men. We keep the other bad men from the door.

We need Ray and Ani to figuratively be bad men including gangsta ass Frank to be really bad asses in the season finale, which is fucking 90 minutes long. (Amazing) They need to be tough as nail because the men at the door are bad as fuck. The world still needs bad men to keep other bad men from the door.

Fu’s Observations:

  • Ray “You want me to roll a joint?” Always
  • Ray telling she’s out of his league. Agh, dude don’t you have a crazy hot brunette wife?
  • How much do you love Frank’s wife commitment to this relationship? Dude is dead on the office floor, honey you need to go on a trip.
  • Frank “I found a brand new orifice so I can fuck myself.” – Classic
  • Difference between a pimp and a whore? – A whore can still have integrity
  • “You fucked up being alone in this room.” – I’m going to say that every time I’m alone with anyone, totally scare the shit out of them.
  • “Look me in the eyes, I want to see your lights go out.” Hardest gangsta line I’ve heard from Frank.
  • I can see Frank working at Applebees but I would always be afraid he wouldn’t come back with my bottomless refill of fries because he is always checking out for gas leaks trying to blow up the restaurant.
  • Is being a captain on a ship on Frank’s wishlist along with automatic weapons and unregistered cars?
  • How hot was that fake fireplace in that motel? I want the same fake fireplace the next time I have awkward sex with a person I totally don’t know.
  • The kidnapped girl totally shut down Ani: “You were put on Earth more than Fucking.” To which she replies: “Everything is fucking.” In your face knife girl!
  • 3 hugs in one day is a record of Ani but not killing a man under 3 minutes because she can do that in her sleep.
  • Woodrugh was the toughest closet war veteran I’ve ever seen. RIP Paul Woodrugh

True Detective – Episode 6 Church in Ruins

Spoiler Alert – Don’t bring knives to an Orgy 

What a comeback from last week’s boring episode of True Detective. This episode had everything you wanted in an episode of TD. For example, it had Frank being what he hates being called a gangsta, Ray being his old wild threatening abusive self again, and tons of T & A. Plenty of people were disappointed including me with last week’s episode after that insane standoff that killed a shit load of people but TD followed it up with a so-so episode that made a lot of people wonder if the writers blew their load early in the season but once again I was happy to be proved wrong again. True Detective is back on track being one of best shows on tv because they aren’t afraid to kill a man with a butter knife in a middle of an orgy.

We will get to the awesome sex party orgy in a second but we have to start off where the last episode left us, which was with Frank and Ray being “Friends” having a normal cup of coffee where they were about to kill each other because Frank gave the wrong information to Ray about his wife’s rapists. But the two men came to an understanding that they didn’t want to die in Frank’s breakfast nook in Glendale. Both men showed their sensitive and violent sides this episode as they acted like nurturing fathers as well as calculating killers. As Frank consoles a young kid, who’s father has recently died. It was nice to see this other side of Frank being nice to a kid, who wasn’t his. Maybe it will change his mind about adoption but his main concern this whole season is gaining back his empire as it leads him to a girl, who might know where that video recorder is but in Frank’s desperation he gets mixed up with the wrong kind of crowd as the Cartel kills the girl because she was working with the cops. Speaking of desperation Ray is finally had enough being on the straight and boring path.

150727-ep14-ani-knife-1920-300x160

As the old Ray that we loved in the beginning of the season comes back in full force this episode. After finding out that he killed the wrong rapists, Ray decides to find the real rapists in jail already, which he tells him that he his lucky that he’s behind bars because he was going to fuck him up in a hot minute. Ray was so pumped up that he was going to kill another rapists that he needed to celebrate to let off a little steam. After he came down, he had a bit of clarity about his son, which he thought it was better for the kid that Ray wasn’t doing to be in his life because it was having a negative effect on the kid. So, he comes to understanding with his ex that he would stay away if she doesn’t tell the kid the truth about his real dad, which is probably the guy from Harry Potter. Speaking of whores and wizards, Ani gets caught up in an undercover operation with Ray and Woodrugh, where she pretends to be a high price hooker in a sex party.

n-MEAN-GIRLS-REUNION-large570

First off, Ani cleans up nicely after a scene with her sister playing with knives looking tougher than Taylor Kitsche. She gets to the party looking like hot dime piece but people always forget that she was a Mean Girl back in the day. Security drugs Ani along with the other girls in order to put them in the mood for the weird sex orgy. Ani tries to stay focus but the drugs start to take effect but not before she finds her missing persons and the boys find clues about land deals with Vinci. The Three Amigos getaway unharmed but unfortunately Ani had to kill a man, which wasn’t the worse part as we could see that she has some underlying issues with her past with a guy that looked like Gallagher the comedian, who murders watermelons. This episode totally killed the last episode, which I hope it continues to rock.

I super glad that True Detective is back on track and with ONLY TWO EPISODES LEFT, I hope it all goes down with a BANG!!!

Fu’s observations:

  • Who do you think would actually win in a staring contest between Ray & Frank?
  • Ray isn’t Whistling Dixie. That rapists has a cheese grader to his balls in his future.
  • I love how Ray’s son watches Friends. Ray is totally Ross and his bitch wife is Rachel.
  • That was a huge mount of blow. People forget you can have a moment of clarity about your life after you drink, sort all the drugs and destroy your apartment.
  • Mexican Standoff with actual Mexicans
  • Does Frank’s Bucket List include avocado trees and Fuck You grilles?
  • Pure MDMA spray? That’s on my Bucket List. I need that my life ASAP Rocky!!!
  • Ani doesn’t get Art but ass play she’s all about it.
  • Ani was totally turned on at the weird sex orgy party right?
  • I wouldn’t be happy in that party because I couldn’t stay focus because there is too much T & A!!! That’s a titty and ass overload for anyone, high or sober!
  • Ani had better knife work when she was high as fuck. That dude did die under 3 mins or less.
  • Great outro song tonight with the band Black Angels “Black Grease”

True Detective – Episode 4 Down will Come

Spoiler Alert – All those dead people from the shootout will not comeback as White Walkers

After a thrilling episode, where three of our characters of True Detective got caught up in a Meth lab shoot out, where cops and innocent people died, it took a toll on all three. Now each one of them are dealing with the fallout due to that horrible event. It’s been a good season so far but tonight’s episode was kinda weak and boring like Jessica Fletcher, which was expected after that crazy shoot out but I hoping True Detective picks up again. I don’t remember the first season of True Detective having a dull moment. But I guess nothing good last forever as we can see in this episode with all the characters leading different lives.

TD.gang_

Frank had to move from his mansion because of his financial situation and now runs the club full-time. His wife is totally not on board with his decision but she is willing to stick it out because she is still in love with him. Up til now Frank has done everything for her, but I wonder if leading this old/ new life will jeopardize her life as well as his. But Frank is just trying to hold on to what he has keeping his friends close but even closer with his enemies as he tells Ray, who now works for Frank because he quit being a detective to follow one of his men because he doesn’t trust him. Speaking of trust I don’t Ray’s wife trusts him at all with his kid.

As Ray is fighting tooth and nail with his wife for custody for his kid, in which his lawyer tells him he needs to make more money because lawyers don’t come cheap. But Ray gets an opportunity from the attorney general to help find the real killer of Casper along with the old crew of Ani and Woodrugh. The attorney general promises him that if he does this job, he will not lose his son. For Ani and Woodrugh they want to solve this case in order to go back to their old lives as detectives.

true-detective-shootout

After the fallout of the shootout, Ani isn’t a detective anymore having to be repositioned to another post in the department as evidence locker nanny. As for Woodrugh, not also is he dealing with the shootout incident, he is also still dealing with that sexual harassment incident with the Hollywood actress. Not to mention he has to deal with his new family and his crazy ass mom. But all these characters are willing to do whatever it takes to get back to their old/new lives because they all believe they deserve more.

The fans of True Detective also deserve more, which I’m hoping that this episode was just a bump in the road for what has been a stellar season of True Detective with excellent storylines and amazing acting. I understand that season one set the bar pretty high but I have hope that the rest of the season can rise to everyone’s expectations. I really hope it isn’t “Back Slide City” for his show.

Fu’s Observations:

  • Nobody is excited to move to Glendale
  • Damn it Ray, not the mustache!!!
  • What is that recorder for? It can’t be for Ray’s son because he wouldn’t understand any of existentialism ideas he’s talking about unless he put them in Justin Bieber examples. Like why is he famous, he’s not talented at all?
  • The sexual harassment meeting for Ani was hysterical. “I really like big dicks, not length but girth. I really have trouble handcuffin that thing. It’s a safe circle isn’t? – Hell yeah it is. Let her share.”
  • I loved Frank’s art piece of the anaconda and the crocodile.
  • The Mexican version of the Cisco Kid
  • “Blue Balls in your heart.” I’m Chinese, then stand in front of a tank.” – Classic Frank
  • Frank hates the word “gangsta” and “infertilization.”
  • I can see Frank as an Organic Farmer that hates to grow anything
  • What the hell Woodrugh’s mom buy with 20 grand? Definitely not a new trailer trash RV.
  • Did Frank really set up Ray with the wrong rapist? Lucy we need a talk…

7 Days in Hell Review – Reasons why you need to watch this movie now!!!

rivalry_nr9bt6 copy

WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

7 Days in Hell Review

Spoiler Alert – Andy Samberg does kill someone…kinda.

First off, congrats to Novak Djokovic for winning his third Wimbledon title and Serena Williams for dominating the women’s tennis game earning her 100th Wimbledon title or whatever it is because she’s just kicking everyone’s ass. That just happened last weekend, which a lot people watched these great athletes be the very best at their sport at a historic and timeless tournament called Wimbledon. Everyone knows that tennis is seen to be less aggressive than other sports, where finesse and agility is valued more than strength and power. The game of tennis is seen to be more of a classy and respectable sport to play just like the historic and strict Wimbledon tournament, where the players are expected to follow strict rules down to their all white uniforms and all players must show great manners because Wimbledon is seen to be the royalty of the tennis game, which sometimes actual royalty like the Queen of England checks out the games. So, when I saw the trailers of 7 days of Hell starring Andy Samberg and Kit Harington, I had to see the HBO made for tv movie because it fucking breaks not also all the tennis rules and all the rules in general. Here are the reasons why you need to see this shit immediately.

  • Andy Samberg, who plays Aaron Williams the adopted brother of Serena and Venus Williams. He is an absolute maniac with his button down sleeveless Jordache tennis attire. He’s literally from the streets. He does all the drugs and bangs all the girls & guys he wants too, plus he fucking killed a man during a tennis match. This might be the best performance I’ve ever seen from Samberg, plus that “Fuck Tennis 4 Ever,” tattoo is fucking amazing.
  • Kit Harington, who is primarily known from the acclaimed fantasy drama, Game of Thrones, plays the very serious Jon Snow. It’s simply amazing to watch him playing someone funny or at least a character, who is totally ridiculous that he is laughable in every scene. He plays Charles Poole, a young tennis prodigy that has a child’s brain that’s been damaged. To see Harington go all out putting himself out there trying to funny was so great.
  • The chemistry between Samberg and Harington is comedy gold. It was like watching two drunk infants fight. They were both willing to anything to get a laugh. And I mean anything.
  • The color commentary was hysterical as well with the likes of Serena Williams, David Copperfield, Chris Evert, John McEnroe and Jim Lampley.

If you are still not impressed by the reasons I’ve given on why you should watch 7 Days of Hell? Well, I thought the best part of the movie was the banter between Harington and the Queen of England was too fucking much. It’s just a ridiculous and fun movie to watch. Plus, if you ever played competitive tennis before like I did, I always wanted to do all the things that the characters did in the movie but I would have gotten in trouble for it. Also, if you aren’t a tennis fan at all, I think it’s still a great movie to watch and maybe it will turn you into a fan of tennis or at least a fan of denim button down sleeveless jackets.

Fu’s Observations:

  • Air Guitar – Everyone has done that with their tennis racquet after every point.
  • The Reverse Blindside
  • Aaron Williams lost 1996 Wimbledon & killed a man.
  • I loved Aaron ‘s under wear line A- Willi, Sac Flop
  • The Digital Orgy was amazing
  • Cocaine in his water bottle. How come I never thought of that?
  • Jim Lampley, “I hate watching tennis.”
  • Poole feeling the pressure, ode to the Blair Witch
  • “Sometimes my dick is a fucking dick.”
  • “I’ve seen too many too many dead bodies on the tennis court.”
  • The Queen of England voice messages were hysterical – “Fuck nut. Stupid Fuck Slut, don’t let us down anymore. I’ve been drinking.”

The Strain – Episode 1 BK, NY

Spoiler Alert – Blind kids can’t defend themselves against bloodsuckers

I’ve been a fan since the first season of The Strain, which is basically a vampire show but I like how they add philosophical views towards the show. Like how love plays a huge role on the first season of the show, where love is not a positive but as a negative. Along with the great cast and good storylines, the Strain is a great show to watch if you want to see something fun and exciting. Also, if you love monsters and vampires this is a perfect show for you to watch.

Love, you see, is the one force that cannot be explained, that cannot be broken down to a chemical process. It is the beacon that guides us back home when no one is there, and the light that illuminates our loss. Its absence robs us all pleasure of our capacity for joy. It makes our nights darker and days gloomier. But when we find love no matter how wrong, how sad, or how terrible we cling to it, it gives us our strength, it holds us upright. It feeds on us and we feed on it. Love is our grace. Love is our downfall.

tumblr_nr2baaXvxq1rxebufo1_540

This was the driving philosophy for the first season, as people who got turned into vampires went right for their former love ones. This new season of the Strain deals with the aftermath of the plague of army of vampires descending on New York City. It’s more about survival this season, where our heroes are outnumbered and out gunned. If this storyline doesn’t make you want to see this exciting season of the Strain, here is another reason why you should be watching the Strain on FX.

The Strain was created by creative geniuses Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Toro has been part of great fantasy films like Pan’s Labyrinth, Blade and Hellboy. Anything that he’s associated with is usually a hit and a great film.

With this new batch of serious shows on this season, take a break and enjoy this thrilling vampire fantasy. I know it’s about vampires but everyone loves vampires.

The Strain is on every Sunday night on FX.

Fu’s Observations:

  • I loved the grandma’s story of the man with the silver wolf cain but I wouldn’t be eating anything with that creepy story.
  • Does the vampire society have a union?
  • The Ancient Ones are a creepy bunch.
  • By far the worst way to die by getting eaten gangbang style by old ass vampires.
  • Eichorst hates small talk – He must be popular at parties.
  • Stoneheart wanting a new hot assistant is kinda creepy as well.
  • Doc’s kid is kinda of a dick now, “Find a cure dad!”
  • I love Dutch Velders’ Ramen and Redbull diet – Been there, done that.
  • I loved the Storage Wars battle with the vampires. You knew that old couple was going to die.
  • Blind kids turned into scary blind vampires with a Momma vampire. What else do you need to watch this show?

Happy National French Fries Day!!! – Jalapeno Chili cheese Fries!!!

image

Today is National French Fries Day! French fries are the ultimate feel-good food, and there are dozens of different ways to enjoy them. Whether you prefer your fries Cajun-style and spicy, sweet, crinkle-cut, curly, waffle, or covered in chili and cheese, today is the day to celebrate this American favorite.

Although the exact origin of French fries is unknown, one theory suggests that they date back to 17th century Belgium. The inhabitants of this region often cooked small fried fish to accompany their meals. When weather conditions made it too dangerous to go fishing, they cut up potatoes in long, thin strips (to resemble the fish) and fried them!

Today, French fries are a global phenomenon. Whether it’s “pommes frites” in France, “patatas fritas” in Spain, or “chips” in the UK, French fries are a worldwide favorite.

Ray Donovan – Episode 1 The Kalamazoo

Spoiler Alert – Mickey is terrific babysitter

I’ve been of Ray Donovan for the last couple of seasons now, which I never thought to do a review because I thought it was just a crime/thriller of a show with little or no philosophical questions I wanted to talk about. But then I saw the trailer for this new season, which was a different storyline for Ray as opposed to other seasons because everything in his life is either changing or dying. Ray has to either adapt or die. Also, the other characters of the show are facing new adversities this season. This season might be the best one yet for the show with the new storyline and the new cast members.

The show starts out with Ray’s former confidant and employer, Ezra Goodman played wonderful by Elliott Gould, essentially on his deathbed being visited by a creepy priest. Ezra confesses on his sins to the priest but is desperately seeking to talk Ray but it is too late as he passes away. Ray wouldn’t want to talk to him anyways because Ezra told Avi to kill Ray’s lover/reporter. Ezra was just looking out for Ray because the reporter could have damaged Ray, in which Ezra always had Ray’s best interest in mind as we could see with Ray’s flashbacks with Ezra. But in this season I don’t think Ray really does not give a fuck about himself or anyone else.

As we can see Ray is devastated by the death of the reporter along with Ezra’s death, he does on a downward spiral with drinking and cheating with his wife. He doesn’t want to be around his coworkers or even his family, but he is still willing to take on odd jobs as he meets powerful Andrew Finney. Mr. Finney is a well to do person, which shares similarities with Ray because they are both men of action and discretion. Ray takes on the job doing what he does making a great impression on Mr. Finney, which we can see this is going to be a focal part of the narrative this season with Mr. Finney and his family.

Ian McShane and Katie Holmes are wonderful additions to the show playing Andrew and Paige Finney but the rest of the characters of Ray Donovan are worth the watch. As we can see that Mickey Donovan is still up to his old tricks making new friends, killing new people and having a good time at it. Ray’s wife Abby is absolutely losing it because her family is falling apart as she begins to drink like a fish. Terry is still in jail but Bunchy is running the gym, which I believe is a great storyline because he’s going to fuck it up in grand fashion. The characters are just as gritty as the show, which is another reason to watch the show. But really we just want to see Ray Donovan do what he does because he’s animal!

Fu’s Observations:

    • I loved the Kafka quote about, ‘In man’s struggle against the world, bet on the world,’” which if I had to bet? I would bet on Ray Donovan.
    • Ray is pussy slayer! You girls love the bad boys.
    • That new priest is defiantly going to die this season
    • I totally forgot how Katie Holmes is hot as fuck
    • I want that Katie Holmes family painting with the dog
    • Speaking of dog, is Abby doing to call the dog Ray?
    • Bunchy on Match.com – Do you put down on your profile that you’ve been raped by priests and really really like children like Jared from Subway?
    • Mickey is still the shit! I would have loved it if Mickey was my babysitter.
    • The Kalamazoo is the shit! Charcoal and gas with those crazy ass BTUs
    • Everyday is a beautiful day in California after you deal with the traffic and pollution. Hotel California is the perfect song for our love of California.

The Weekend Inspiration – A husband pays tribute to his late wife by walking 650 miles as a Stormtrooper to Comic Con

According to Yahoo News, on June 6, Kevin Doyle set out to walk all the way from Petaluma, California to San Diego in full Stormtrooper armor, in tribute to his late wife Eileen. Today, that journey has hopefully reached its successful end.

“He can still hear the inflection of his late wife’s voice when she would say to him, ‘You’re such a dork,'” begins the article on Doyle’s trek in The Coast News. His wife, Eileen, was a “self-proclaimed geek” herself, and the two were big fans of Star Wars. Doyle told The Coast News that, when she died of pancreatic cancer late in 2012, “doing the walk down the West Coast in armor was really the only choice I had.”

On the way, Doyle says he’s met a fair share of people who are curious as to why a guy dressed as a stormtrooper would be walking 645 miles across California. But he’s also been greeted by cancer survivors and their families, and those who have also lost loved ones to the disease.

“They just want to talk to me and thank me for raising awareness,” he told Cost News. “For me, it’s just me walking to honor my wife, but then people are gathering and making it really special. And they’re making it personal for them, which I hadn’t accounted for that — that people would receive me in that way.” In addition to his walk, Doyle is also fundraising in Eileen’s name, and has so far collected $4,065 to donate blankets, toys, and other items to children with cancer.
