Fast moving and full of action and intrigue,this 1st season has plenty going for it with the potential for something special if the writers of the storylines broaden the premise that they have set up.

Leiv Schreiber plays the eponymous role with sensitivity,both brutal and hard when necessary and with a gentleness that's almost embarassing when confronting his own family at times.

Ray Donovan is the 'fixer',a man who solves the problems of the Hollywood rich,famous and degenerate for a price;undoubtably the old film studios did this kind of work since the invention of celluloid over 100 years ago,hiding the misdemeanors of the stars who were contracted to the studios.
For instance not many people knew that Errol Flynn often had sex with under-age girls(at that time 16years old)until he was eventually taken to court and charged with statutory rape,or that James Dean and Rock Hudson were rampantly gay during the height of their careers,when homosexualty was frowned upon.All hidden by the Mr Fixits of Universal,MGM,Warner,Fox,etc.

Donovan's clientele include sports and pop stars which gives this series huge potential.

Unfortunately,in my view,the 1st season got bogged down with too much involvement with some members of the Donovan family:the threads involving his wife and daughtor reminded me of the waste of screen time enjoyed by Jack Baur's wife and daughtor in 24: Season One DVD Collection [DVD] (memory loss of wife,daughtor caught up in a supermarket seige etc.???).

And so I took a chance on this although I hadn't heard of it before.It's well cast - all the characters are completely convincing. The plot is gripping and Liev Schreiber commands your sympathy despite his violent approach to problem solving. Would highly recommend. Can't wait for series 2 !

Format: DVD
Ray Donovan drama series is a narrative that deals with the problems and possible scandals of the rich and famous of Los Angeles. These people need their problems to disappear, and this is when they hire Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber) a as Hollywood “fixer” extraordinaire. However, the return of his ex-convict father (Jon Voight) brings unsettled and complications issues that Ray may not be able to fix. Where Ray excels at solving other people’s problems, it’s the problems closer to home that seem to be the most daunting and difficult for him to resolve, or control. Ray’s regular business of fixing the major screw-ups of the opulent and well-known, he is aided by a tight team of consisting primarily of Avi (Steven Bauer) and Lena (Katherine Moennig).

Elliott Gould as Ezra Goldman plays, a confidant, collaborator and patron of Ray’s - but who is slowly losing his rationality. Then there is Rays’ wife Abby (Paula Malcomson) who wants to be part of the good life in Los Angeles. Abby has an almost obsessive need to push - to attain more and more has stressed their relationship. Then of course there are their two children who are rather impressionable. Bring into the mix Rays’ dysfunctional siblings and a father (who Ray wants to keep well away from) who has just left prison who is both devious, a prime manipulator and petty criminal Mickey played aptly by Jon Voight.

The series has the cultural sub-text of being Boston Irish, Catholicism, church abuse, old- family roots versus the fresh-start and new beginnings of California. It’s a culture clash that adds that extra depth to the series. As creator and writer Ms Ann Biderman has fashioned a testosterone driven, coarse and clever series, which seems to break new ground for good drama – a rather addictive series.

Format: DVD
A mix of The Sopranos and Brotherhood with a soupcon of Entourage this eminently watchable Showtime series is soldily made but gets bogged down too much with the family dynamics of the Donovans (shades of the similarly named/themed "Black Donnelly`s"). The programme-makers imagine we`ll find the internecine ructions of the family as interesting as the Hollywood backdrop that Ray operates so violently within. They`re wrong and as a result we spend far too much time in Ray`s brother`s boxing gym and sorting out the hopelessly broken life of his other brother Bunchy. Jon Voight redeems much of this family [melo]drama with an outstanding career-best performance as RD`s father, fresh out of jail and causing mayhem from the first ep. Good series overall but not brilliant - Here`s hoping they get the balance right in season 2.

Loved Ray Donovan!

I was worried I was running out of a next great TV show to watch (being a massive Dexter and Breaking Bad fan) but I've found it in Ray Donovan.

Gritty, gripping well-acted and I can’t wait until season 2 starts. A must have for any TV fan wanting to get into the next best thing.
