Clearly Ruby was never meant to be a complex character. Calvin's mania and anguish were the main protags/an tags here. I think it got dark when needed, as in the final scene after the party, which was quite uncomfortable.. And it was an inventive look at the notion of male-control in relationships, an often overlooked issue in current media, unless it involves more intense physical or emotional abuse. Ultimately, Calvin's breakdowns led to breakthroughs, and we hope he has learned through them.
I do agree re the scene with the mom and Mort. Antonio Bandera's presence garnered the biggest laugh, but otherwise that whole situation seemed sort of pointless, unless I'm missing something. You're right, the scene with Jessica (True Bloods most sexy) was a show-stealer. Her emotion and insight articulated our growing concerns with the generally likable Calvin.
Abhorrent wraith, lol. Low-moderate risk, high reward. If we make the playoffs with Semin, then it's money we'll spent.
Again, I'd like to compliment the Indy on your Canes coverage, although I wish you would have analyzed the deal a bit deeper for this article.
The Canes are gonna see more Pens, Flyers, and Rangers fans in the RBC.. but they won't be seeing much of the playoffs anytime soon
