The title is apt as the series is really about the characterisation of Ray. If you enjoy character driven shows you will probably enjoy this. The pacing is slow and you should give it at least 3-4 episodes before making up your mind whether to watch the rest. The story arcs are somewhat obvious and the plot goes along how you might expect; this show isn't about surprises and plot twists or cliffhanger endings.

The acting is mostly excellent, this is Liev Schreiber's best performance for a long time. Jon Voight is bizarre (as usual) and hams it up at times but the supporting cast is excellent and it is only people like James Woods who let it down, which is a shame really as James Woods is a great actor. The writing is excellent and the series flows like a well written book, it is not episodic in any way and it is a good series to binge watch.

Although the description says Ray is a 'fixer' the story is really about family relationships with Ray at the centre trying to hold his life together while being pulled between the past (and his mistakes) and his future. There is some humour in it but otherwise it it emotionally dark and tense. If you are easily offended by swearing, explicit sex (with violence in many of the sex scenes) you may not want to watch this. Some of the lines and actions coming from Jon Voight for example are unrepeatable and definitely only for adults. There are many explicit verbal references to child abuse, which may upset some viewers.

The show covers subject matter such as organised crime, celebrity culture, drugs, family, tragedy and how people can, or can't, move beyond their past. It covers some familiar territory but it does it in a refreshing and updated way; this show would not have been made 15 years ago.

Ray Donovan, L.A. fixer to the stars. No problem too big or mess too messy (and that’s just his home life). His complex and often brutal profession life makes his work / life balance difficult enough to manage without the unexpected release of his father, Micky, from prison after serving twenty years for murder. If Ray’s life was difficult before, he’s now dragged into an increasingly chaotic series of fire fighting operations just trying to keep up with the direct and indirect aftermath of Micky’s actions.

That more-or-less sums up the central premise of this unusual and difficult to pigeon-hole TV show. His family life and relationship with his father and brothers may seem a bit family soapy or crime / mob Sopranos’ish but it’s not entirely. The LA glamour & money components could lend the show a glitzy action element but it doesn’t. The involvement of the FBI could make it police procedural, but it’s not. A buddy show it most definitely is not. It is a curious and surprisingly successful blend of genres.

The main cast is superb; all the way from Leiv Shrieber title role, Jon Voight the delinquent father, Paula Malcomson (Trixie from the excellent Deadwood) the long suffering wife, Ray’s brothers Terry (another British actor making good in the USA) & Bunchy through to Elliot Gould and James Woods. Even the kids are good & that certainly makes a change. The production is equally splendid and the writing similarly so, as the plot twists, turns and lurches its way from one catastrophe to another (although I must confess that we got a bit confused at one point – we probably missed a crucial bit of dialogue).

So I got into Ray Donovan when it came on sky and I was hooked ever since. I can watch it over and over again, I've even purchased the box set now.

Ray is a fixers to the celebrities in LA and he makes things go away in return for a large sum of money. He doesn't ask too many questions and just gets on with it.

It is based around a true story back in the old school LA.

He has a wife and kids, a strained relationship with his father.

Scenes of sex, violence and offensive language throughout each episode so not for the faint hearted. Kind of like a new style sopranos but not mafia related.

It is difficult to describe but it is definitely worth a shot. Give it 2 episodes and I'm sure you will be hooked.

It gets better and better with each coming season, it gets very dark and gritty as we delve into his past and skeletons come out to play. But you will fall in love with his character and the demons he has to face.

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, vexing and difficult for him to resolve, or for that matter control. In 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 by Jon Voight.

The series has the cultural subtext of being Boston Irish, church child abuse, old - family roots versus the fresh-start and modernity.
