Did You Know?


When Ray and Tanya are having hotdogs at a diner, you can see that some of the items on the table change in each shot. The wrapping paper in front of Ray goes from crumpled to folded out. When we first see Tanya's glass, we can see the words "[P]epsi Cola" on it, with the "P" barely visible. In the next shot, the glass has been turned so that only the word "Pepsi" can be seen. In the next shot, the full "Pepsi-Cola" sign can be seen (the "P" is clearly visible). When Tanya first puts the mustard bottle down on the table, we can see neither the front nor the back label. In the next shot, the bottle has been turned so that most of the front label can be seen. In the next shot, when we can see the bottle from behind Tanya, it has been turned back to the first position (none of the labels is visible). In the next shot, from Ray's perspective, the bottle has been turned so that all of the back label can be seen. After Tanya has bitten off a bit of the hot-dog, she puts it down on the plate with the chewed-off side pointing to her left, with a bit of the sausage clearly sticking out from the bun. In the next shot, the sausage has disappeared. In the next shot, the bun has been turned, so that the chewed-off bit is pointing to Tanya's right. See more »


Ray Drecker: It'll be okay, kinda like a threesome.
Tanya Skagle: Kinda like a threesome, huh? Have you ever been in a threesome? Everyone I've ever been in, the other two people screw while all I do is bring them water.
[Ray laughs]
Tanya Skagle: Lenore is a bottom feeder Ray, she can't understand Happiness Consultant. She's the most unhappy person I know. Ah god, don't you wanna bring happiness into the world, atleast atleast on some level?
Ray Drecker: Sure Tanya. But right now, I'll settle for a living.

Realistic and intense story, intriguing arcs but short format of the zombie queen
19 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

There's Something About Ray and Tanya that is both heartbreaking and inspiring. The first struggles to repair his house and the second desperately wants to make people happy. The solution they found to achieve their goals is absurd but they know it. That's why Lenore was an important addition because she helps remind us that what they do is just wrong. But the finale wasn't really about the morality, it was more about the compromises you have to make and priorities to set. They had to make a decision and their choices should intrigue you enough not to miss the upcoming season 2 premiere. The episode was also full of emotional moments that should make you care for the characters even more. From the phone call to his ex-wife to the children hugging at the theatres you shouldn't be disappointed. The only con was a useless sex scene even if it allowed some characters to strengthen their relationship. But the rest was excellent and I found a scene involving Ray's ex-wife husband quite crunchy. Now my only wish is that things get better for them because they deserve to be happy. Their consultant idea is good but the execution is inappropriate for the moment. So let's hope Hung will not become a neverending gigolo story. I don't it could considering how smart it has been so far. Fingers crossed.
