    I like the Boston mob angle....i'll hang in for a while.
    The guy who plays Ray is pretty emotionless though....

    This is an excellent series. Each season takes about 6-7 episodes before it really starts to sizzle.

    I'm on episode 10 of Season 3 right now - I had to pause this so I could comment.
    Starting at episode 7 of this season, this series becomes intense. At episode 9 one of the best actors to have previously appeared in this series returns: Hank Azzaria.
    Maybe I misspelled the name.
    It don't mattahhhhh -the show increases in intensity.

    Outstanding series and highly recommended.
    5 times better than True Dectective Season 2.
    But then I'm still butt hurt over that 2nd series of what should have been an excellent franchise.

    She said they gave her character braces to show she is not perfect in her rich life, but flawed. :stupid:

    I really like this show. It's dark and surprising. Season 3 is turning out to be very suspenseful. Can't wait to see how it plays out. LOVE the accents.
