The setup is that Ray feels Emmit bilked him on their inheritance awhile back, and he’s nursing a grudge.

I’m obsessed with Black Mirror.
What was the first genre show to resonate with you? 1. HBO owes a “thank you” to The Incredible Hulk. Because when you’re a skinny, nerdy 10-year-old, you wish you could transform into a painted green Lou Ferrigno and beat the living s–t out of anyone who makes you angry.
An engrossing murder mystery, courtroom drama, and family saga, HBO's The Night Of, starring John Turturro, is a miniseries to enjoy, think about, and debate.
There was an unprecedented variety of excellent dramas this year… as well as an unprecedented amount of them.

Here are my picks for the best of them.
