Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber) is a fixer. He’s the guy a celeb calls when they are getting stalked, wake up with a dead one-night-stand in their bed, or have a transgendered hooker attempting to blackmail them. The most powerful athletes, actors, musicians, and lawyers of Los Angeles depend on Ray.
While Ray’s got his work life handled, his personal life is another story. He is the patriarch of a family of Boston transplants living in Hollywood. Ray’s disgruntled wife, Abby (Paula Malcomson), wants to move to a nicer neighborhood, so their two teenagers’ can attend better schools. READ MORE
I wish I could’ve just written a recap of the third season finale of The Borgias. However, with Showtime’s recent cancellation of the papal sudser, this post must deal with how effective “The Prince” served as a series finale.
First, let’s discuss the plot. The episode finally saw Cesare (François Arnaud) ascend to the role of powerful military leader like he’d always wanted. He received unofficial permission from Machiavelli allowing him to bring the Papal Army through Florence at night on their way to Forli. READ MORE
One of daytime and "anytime" TV's No. 1 stunners is heading for pay cable. Deadline is reporting Roger Howarth has booked a multi-episode guest spot on Showtime's long-running dramedy Californication. From the article:

Micheletto (Sean Harris) tenderly killed his traitorous lover, and then fled Rome. He left only Pascal’s body and “Goodbye” scrawled on the floor in his blood. Cesare (François Arnaud) was deeply affected by abandonment of Micheletto, for personal and work-related reasons. He knew he couldn’t trust any of his other generals like he did Micheletto, or expect them to be as efficient at their job.
Rodrigo (Jeremy Irons) tasked Mattai with buying up all the sulfur in Rome, to prevent any army from manufacturing gunpowder, even Cesare’s. When he and Caterina (Gina McKee) were both informed there was nothing left to power their guns, they each assumed the other was behind the plot. READ MORE
King Federigo traveled to Rome so he could receive the Pope’s investiture. As a show of continued peace between Naples and Rome (including Cesare’s French forces), Federigo asked that a special ambassador be appointed between their two lands: Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger). Lucrezia was honored.
When they returned to Naples, Federigo dropped his “nice guy” act and let Lucrezia know she’d been played. In actuality, she was his prisoner, and security in case Cesare (François Arnaud) acted against Naples or Caterina Sforza (Gina McKee). Devastated, a resolute Lucrezia set to secretly scheme with the old lady witch doctor from the woods, for the escape of her and her family from Naples. READ MORE
