I watched the premier episode of the Fourth Season of Ray Donovan and wondered: “What the hell happened?”

It was a horrible mishmash of ideas that really didn’t belong together.

They’ve taken tough guy Ray and turned him into a weeping victim of child abuse by a man of the cloth and sat him down in group therapy.

His wife has cancer now.

Mickey is in Mexico setting up drunks in a casino and takes peyote.

Ray’s poor brother is devastated because he can’t get into the priesthood.

What what what ?

I knew there had to be some reason why the show suddenly had gotten wrecked. Just found out Ann Biderman, who created it, left and somebody new took over as show runner. He evidently got his script writing techniques from Dr. Phil.

Good bye, Ray.
