Super Rays
The season finale of Bored To Death kept Jonathan, George, and Ray busy with the absurd antics that make this show so unique. As a finale should, the story lines of the main characters were tidied up but left some loose ends to look forward to in season four.

Guest stars included the wonderfully sour Stacy Keach, a potential lead to Jonathan’s sperm donor, and Isla Fisher, a...
