The show has potential to be great but it just seems to be lazy now.
been that way.
Surely you'd have realised this when Ari decided to remain an agent, flying in the face of all logic, just cause he had a mancrush on Vince?
Surely you'd have realised this when Vince didn't really face his shortcomings because everything turned out for the best with a call from Marty Scorsese?
Surely you'd have realised this when E didn;t have to face the fact that he may have helped put Vince in the shit when it turned out he'd help set up the Scorsese role?
Surely you'd have realised that nothing actually goes too wrong for these guys - ever. Last season was as dark as this shows gonna go, and the writers obviously thought it was pretty darn dark, when it actual fact it wasn't dark at all?
The show is fun fluff, it has all the depth of a kiddies paddling pool, either you enjoy it on that level for all it's laid back pseudo-wish fullfillment and characters that will never really grow no matter what happens or it's not for you. Stop expecting it to be something it's not.
Just because it's on HBO does not mean you should expect anything more from it than what it offers.
