    Storyline gravitating to gratuitous sex. No plot just sex; the same as when True Blood went totally downhill. Writers are just lost, but figure they can sell gay sex, necrophilia, old peoples sex, and soon sex with farm animals. One more show like last night’s and I’m done with the series and perhaps Showtime as well.

    Pathetic and sad commentary on today’s programming.
