    As for showtime standards , the first episode has leaked and it is as good as ever, I wasn’t aware that Katie Holmes and fucking Ian MacShane was guest starring, just amazing.

    The best scenes of the premiere were with Ray dealing with the rich boy’s “kidnapping” and the introduction to Ian McShane’s character. He’s such an upgrade from Elliott Gould, who honestly should have been written off the series awhile ago. Those hospital scenes were dreadful to watch, as well as the flashbacks to Ezra first bringing Ray to California on the plane. Katie Holmes made a strong impression doing something I’ve never seen her do, so that’s nice for her stretching some. I didn’t care about Bunchy running the gym or updating his Match.com profile. Abby is just the worst. Poor Paula Malcomson. They should have placed all of Ray’s family to guest-star status by divorcing Ray and Abby and seeing the kids once or twice this season. Boarding school is calling! It would have been nice to check in on Terry, but that’s coming next episode. As for Mickey, well, Jon Voight is still Jon Voight, so you either go along with whatever wavelength he’s on here or you don’t. If Voight gets nominated again this week, I call him being nominated for the rest of the show’s run. I really can’t with Mickey running a ring of hookers, but that douchey pimp had to go after all. I did like seeing Fairuza Balk show up here. I haven’t seen her on anything in years. Really didn’t need to see Bronson Pinchot in anything ever again lol. The episode could have been written more gracefully, but it’s a decent enough start to the season.

    Grade for “The Kalamazoo”: B-

    Finally watched the premiere. It was my favorite premiere it has had since the pilot. Voight was my favorite part though. That guy literally can read the phone book and make it look good. As for Holmes, I was very surprised. She definately is one to watch out for this season. I’d bet money that her and Ray are going to hook up. My grade: A

    I might have to watch this episode again, b/c there were a bunch of sound issues with my feed that prevented me from hearing all of the dialogue, especially the scenes between Liev Schreiber and Katie Holmes (but maybe it’s her? Does she have on braces or something? Weird). I’m oddly drawn to any scheme that Mickey’s involved in, but I wish that he wouldn’t always rope Darryl into them, who doesn’t seem to know any better than to go along with him. And is that my beloved Grace Zabreskie guest-starring here as Mickey’s start-up money mob lady? Yassss! Bunchy’s dominiatrix storyline is silly. Dash Mihok deserves better than this. The real supporting actor of note here has always been Eddie Marsan, and he more than proved that last night in those harrowing prison fight sequences. I really can’t with Ray’s family anymore. Send them all away! They’re no use to the show anymore, Paula Malcomson is awful, and the kids are mainly time wastes (except maybe last season when Bridget was involved with Marvin and the tragedies that followed there; odd that she’s surprisingly over them all and hasn’t mentioned anything about them yet). I’m still puzzled how Liev Schreiber managed an Emmy nomination last week or what tape from last season will make him competitive for the win. It’s cool that he’s remembered in this way though, so congratulations to him regardless! Surprised that Jon Voight was dropped for his grandstanding. Maybe Eddie Marsan will have a legitimate shot at a nomination next year.

    Eh this season is starting off on a bumpy start. It’s kind of boring and this show is usually exciting and fun.

    Probably just me but I really only found the Mickey stuff to be super interesting this week. Liev and Holmes have really good chemistry together though.

    Marsan was pretty fantastic in those prison scenes, this is such a goood actor doing tremendous work on a average-to-good show, he should get way more meatier roles in great shows.

    Liev Schreiber’s Emmy tape is “Walk This Way.” Excellent choice!

    Same thing I said.   He’s very competitive with “Walk This Way.”   Even though I want Jon Hamm to finally win an Emmy, Scheiber’s episode is very strong.
