Well, I'll start this.

Seems like it would be a good show. My problem is the accents. Very difficult to understand the characters. Especially the man with the speech problem. Also who is he in relation to the main character. I was guessing a brother but I could have missed it not understanding what was being said. I like the main character and his daughter. I don't know if I will be back.

I have watched other shows produced in Australia and could follow along. I don't know if it is the production of the show or what. 

I was sorry to see that he had to kill the wrong guy in the second episode. He felt bad and gave the widow some money. I would just like some stuff explained a little better.

I'm using the captions.  My gosh, but they use the F word a lot! 

I missed the first episode, or maybe the first two episodes.  Seems like this is filmed in half-hour segments and we get two segments at a time.  Is that right?  Anyway, I caught the one where he thought he killed the brother-in-law (?) who had tried to rob him.

Wish I'd seen this from the beginning.  Who are the people taking care of Ray's daughter?  Is Ray a hit man?

Enjoyed seeing Damon Herriman  again.  After seeing him in Justified and Quarry, I'm surprised to see that he's Australian.  Why is it that Aussies and Brits can do excellent southern US accents, but Americans suck at southern?

Ray is in "security" - usually he just roughs people up, but he did kill someone, apparently the wrong person. 

The people taking care of Ray's daughter are her mother and new husband.

My DVR has picked up new showings of the first two episodes during this week - check out the FX schedule.

even my captions can not understand the brother(?) who i assume has had a stroke. never know what he is saying. this show is strange. ray's girlfriend is a moron for staying with him after witnessing his outrage. not a good sign. i may have to bail out. the russian guy is a moron, the sister is unlikeable, her husband is unlikable and a porn addict. ray is unstable.

He said he has MN, motor neuron disease -- which is Aussie for ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease. 

I can understand why we're having trouble hearing -- my closed captioning picks up conversation (from characters who are outside the shot) that isn't even slightly audible.  Really bad sound work.

Thanks meep.meep for alerting me about the repeats -- I caught them on demand and they explained a lot. 

The show has some really unattractive characters (behavior-wise, not physical) but it's compelling to me.  I like that Ray didn't kill the undercover cop, sort of making up for killing the wrong guy earlier.  Weird, to "like" someone for not killing somebody.  Kinda twisted, eh?

The 6th episode is hilarious - I think it's the last one.  I liked Ray letting the cop go too.  What did Ray ask him when he caught him on the pay phone?  "are you **** or dog?"  and what does that mean?

Where are our authentic Australian translators?  Don't make me have to ask my 96 year old uncle....

I'm probably going to hell for thinking a show where people get killed is hilarious.

"Are you Jack or dog?"  My guess is that Jack is real police and dog is an ordinary snitch, a low-life who sees an opportunity.  You can have some respect for a Jack, but not a dog.

What I want to know is what's a "dimmie"?

My guess is Dim Sum. Ray mentioned soy sauce for the dimmies when confronting Nick at the payphone.

Ray has a safe rigged with a bomb for "certain" occasions. Kidnappers beware!

For a moment , I thought Dave was buying the steel ruler for the purpose to beat the goofy sidekick Bobby for leaving the car.

I am a little surprised Ray let Dave go after how many times the guy promised/threatened to put a hole in him.

You're right!  And he gets soy sauce for his dimmies in the last episode.  When he finds the two car thiefs in the shop with his locked box.

I just watched the first two episodes.  I loved how Ray stepped back and kicked that young punk in the nuts.  Looking forward to watching the rest of this show.
