Format: DVD
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 !

I purchased this based on the 5 star reviews. Yes - I suppose it's OK. Am I waiting to get Series Two. No!. It is hard to put a finger on what is wrong with it. Too much explicit sex? Well I purchased Boardwalk Empire Series One at the same time, again based on a friend's recommendation, and the explicit sex is just as bad or worse so perhaps this is now the trend. The thing is, and I am not a prude, it just adds nothing to the plot perhaps even slowing it down. Also I find I cannot connect with the characters and I am certainly no boxing fan - which doesn't help. Have been spoilt by Breaking Bad, Dexter and The Wire. These did not have to depend on sexual content just great story telling.

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.

Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber) is about a guy who has a role of " a mister fixit " for a law firm, he fixes problems for his firms clients, but like the Sopranos, all the episodes deal with his family/personal situations as well, the main one being the story behind the release from prison of his father (Jon Voight), and a dark secret involving his brothers/sister. I was hooked from episode 1, the acting is fantastic, the story is deeply riviting and i look forward (hopefully) to a second series.
