Hitman: Agent 47

HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47′s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.

Steve’s Take

Scott decides to take a vacation when the main bluray movie of the week is Hitman: Agent 47. White. Hot. Steaming. Garbage.

Shameless: The Complete Fifth Season

Season 5 of the misadventures of Chicago’s dysfunctional Gallagher clan picks up a few months after Season 4′s finale, with Fiona (Emmy Rossum) now out of prison. It doesn’t take long for Fiona to get involved in a surprising love triangle. Meanwhile, Frank (William H. Macy) tries to scare off two lesbians who are trying to buy up property in the neighborhood; and he later falls in love with a dying doctor. As for Lip (Jeremy White), he commits himself to college life.

Steve’s Take

I LOVE Shameless. It has everything that you could ask for in a television series. The amount of things that this poor family has to go through makes you appreciate your life even more! If you’re a Rotten Tomatoes person, Shameless has a 100% rating ever since season 2! Grab this one and catch up before season 6 begins in early January.

Ray Donovan: Season Three

Season 3 of the drama about Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber), a troubleshooter in Los Angeles who fixes problems for the rich and famous, begins with Ray still dealing with the death of newspaper reporter Kate McPherson and believing that his closest friends have betrayed him. He soon gets his mind on business when he is hired by a wealthy family to free their kidnapped son. Meanwhile, Mickey (Jon Voight) gets into prostitution when he murders a pimp who was mistreating a hooker.

Steve’s Take

I’m a big fan of Ray Donovan. Boston badass turned to Los Angeles bad ass. It was an interesting season with some twists and turns and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen in season 4. Binge, binge, binge!
