  • Oh MY !!

    Oh My, I rewind like twice the last bit. Kelsey Grammer deserve a OSCAR for his performers on this show. And I was thinking like it would be very very difficult for him to act in a great show better than Frasier. I'm a huge fan of the frasier show.

    Well he prove me wrong, this was breath taking! not only Kelsey Grammer performed a great acting also the others, the lot of them.

    His daughter Emma, not a realy great actrice, but the way the still was hungry for the love and attention of her father. I think that Kane loved her because she was his offspring, his seed. One thing for sure he never loved his wife, he just needed her for his carreer.

    And than Thomas Kane did what he do best - Betrayel! - He realy ***ed her just to win points afore the election. Tom Kane is the devil in person. Tom Kane is like all the politicians on earth.

    Zajac reminds me of bill clinton, a bit of a oversexed govenor and later the president of the USA. The wife of Zajac is great, just like Mrs. Clinton. she is/was the woman behind the man. without her clinton would never winn and run for governor and later president.



    The betrayel of Ezra Stone! did not see that comming, not in a million years. Kitty - Yes- but Stone no never. Who told Kane that Stone was the one who handed over the papers to the press. the nurse? his wife? Zajac, well I have to watch it again!

    Ezra, this is the ultimate betrayel. Like Judas betrayed Jesus, because of love and disappointment. Ezra loved, obeyed, and looked up to Kane. Put him on a pedestal. Ezra was a naive man who taught the world of Tom Kane. as if he was a god, and at the end he was just a selfish human like all of us.moreless
  • What Just Happened?

    I'll tell you what happened. Kelsey Grammer just won himself a freakin' EMMY! I just watched the season finale of Boss a couple of hours ago and boy, if there ever was a moment in television history that needed to be remembered, it's this one.



    After the maw-gaping episode last week where Kane practically sent a massive 'screw you' message to all the individuals on the wrong side of his band wagon, this week's show went a step further by getting its hands dirty, then rolling around in the mud and finally peeing all over it.

    What an episode, folks! The results of the gubernatorial primary were finally revealed with a bruised and bloodied Zajac (literally) emerging as the winner. Now that Zajac is basically Kane's sock-puppet, season two will hopefully involve more embarrassing moments for the newly elected governor of Illinois.



    The focus however, was on Kane and Stone as they steamrolled through the remnants of Alderman Ross's plan in order to re-establish Kane's supremacy. Things looked like they were running smoothly for the Mayor until the whereabouts of the elusive nurse Debra (who he tried to strangle a few weeks back) became known. So obviously Stone sent unnamed gray haired dude to finish her off. Except he didn't (really good room service. They save your life and everything!). When Kane decide to pay Debra a visit to the hospital, he was in for a nasty surprise.



    The writers of Dexter's currently abysmal season should learn a thing or two about how to reveal a twist from this show. I didn't expect Stone to be the leak. Didn't have a clue. The astonishment and ultimate disgust on Kane's face was brilliantly executed by Grammer. Ezra's speech about Kane's fall from grace and his own ultimate moral awakening should alone earn Martin Donovan an Emmy nomination as well.



    Ezra's ultimate death was intense. His expression after being shot had a certain degree of contentment which suggested he died with a clear conscious. Bravo, Martin Donovan!



    American Horror Story is NOT the scariest show on television.

    Kane's godfatheresque approach to his political and personal life has now led to his daughter's incarceration, his wife's disgrace and the death of his closest confidant of thirty years. I am seriously scared of this guy!



    Tidbits



    - Did anybody feel sorry for Kane in the final scene? I didn't.

    - So who was unnamed gray haired dude really working for? Kane or Stone?

    - Tom Kane makes me piss my pants. I'm not kidding.

    - This show should receive a barrage of Emmies. If it doesn't, I will eat Jane Timoney's hat.moreless
