    Just finished S6.
    Sucked.
    Used to be a good (not great) show.
    Should be cancelled

    Past two seasons have been depressed, moping, reactive Ray. Much less entertaining to watch than masterful, in-control Ray. And I don't know where the directors got the idea that it is more entertaining to have long scenes of brooding and literally time-skip most of the action scenes so that the action occurs off-screen. I watched most of the episodes on 2x or 4x speed, and they were STILL too slow paced.

    Agree...I have one question.

    I only half watched the final two episodes. What happened to the cop in the end? (The one who Ray stayed with at the beginning of this season).

    He brought Ray to Bridget, then committed suicide in the parking lot.

    Makes you think and causes a reaction. I would say that is a success! Great show!

    Da boogie...
    Good season but the finale was pretty bad. Shoulda ended last week.

    I had a real problem at how Bridget was casually dismembering those bodies...WTF? And that kid she married should have run for hills. In fact when he asked Bridget and Terry if they wanted water, I thought for sure he was not coming back.

    And no details at what happened to Winslow. I thought that when Ray was leaving the building from the parking lot, we were going to see her splat on the sidewalk.

    I found it ridiculous that:
    1) Mick, an escaped (framed) murderer could just walk (and drive) around and not get caught.
    2) The police would need Bunchy to find Mick, and could not find him by just following any of the Donovans
    3) That the Mayor of NYC (after a deal with Ray) could get Bunchy set free (he attempted to murder an officer while helping Mick escape.)
    4) That they can spend all night dismembering (with a chainsaw) and burying 3 bodies in a residential neighborhood with no one noticing.
    5) Lena just knew the length of rope needed to hang that guy
    6) Ray could kill Samantha and get away with it.
    7) That Terry could win all those fights when all his opponent needed to do was hit him in the chest (with the implanted medical device)
    8) Every single loose end of the season neatly tied up (they can just cancel it now)
    9) Ray pulls a gun on the Mayor with 3 bodyguards having a
    9) …and more! :)
    Terrible, awful season.

    And how could Ray spend all his time wandering around with a concussion? He was constantly getting his head beat in.

    I thought the same thing exactly. Really out of character for her.

    I liked this season better than last season's depression-fest but it's a far cry from what it used to be.

    I loved the addition of the Sandy character and her rat tail. A female Mickey...

    Best episode of a strong season. For the haters, you might have to suspend real life to enjoy...just like other shows

    What loose end was left dangling?
    (other than will all of the Donovans go to jail for murder).
    It looked to me like they tied everything up with the S6 finale.

    Not a hater but just don't agree. The show in its heyday, to me, was a strong Ray creatively solving problems for the rich and/or famous. Intertwined with all this were his various and many family issues. It was always the combination of family, conflict and violence but his mental issues going back to Abby's death have really taken the show down, IMO.

    The last 2 years has been a family melodrama with some downtrodded, depressed version of Ray doing some of what he does. He started getting back to himself this season a little (when he got out of his sweats and back into the blazer/white shirt) but it didn't last.

    The latter episodes, with his imbecilic family more cartoonish than ever, was just not compelling to me, culminating with Bridget ever so nonchalantly jumping in and dismembering bodies, as if was second nature to her. :rolleyes:

    And what about Alan Alda? I think we’ll be seeing more of him next season as Ray has a redemption

    That's a potential story line, not a loose end. I really think all loose ends were (unbelievably) tied up in the S6 finale.
