4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone's Dysfunction September 15, 2013
Format:DVD
Ever find yourself in a mess and wish you had someone to help you out? If you are rich, a celebrity and live in LA you have Ray Donovan. He's a 'Fixer', that's his job, which made me wonder, how do you prepare for this kind of profession?

Liv Schreiber plays Ray, a dark, brooding man who is called at all hours to fix someone's problems. He s employed by Goldman and Drexter, a law firm. This is a tough job, very physical, often employing guns and the like. Fists fly, threats are made. Often the situations are sexual in nature, and Ray knows how to fix everyone's problems. He has a staff who are the best at their work, and the insurance the law firm must have to cover them is probably in the millions.

Ray has a family, wife, Abby, played by Paula Malcomson, two children, a boy and girl. They are Boston Irish and all came to LA to hide from Ray's father, Mickey, played byJon Voight. The dysfunction in this family is like no other. Mickey is said to be responsible for his daughter's suicide, and has killed a Priest. It sounds like Mickey was part of the Boston Mafia. He went to prison for twenty years, and was let out early, ostensibly to rat on Ray for the FBI. One happy family, once Mickey journeys to LA to join Ray's brothers at their boxing establishment.

Each episode, and there are 12, opens with a client needing Ray's services. Ray and his wife are always on the 'outs', and he often stays in an apartment in LA. Abby, the wife, seems innocent of what kind of person Ray is, which is difficult to swallow. The biggest complaint I have is of Abby's false Boston accent, drives me crazy, it is so noticeable, and she is the only one who fakes the accent.

The interaction between Ray and his father is often grim and turns personal at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new drama September 21, 2013
By Steve
Format:DVD
There is a lot of back story that has to be told, so it takes a couple episodes for Ray Donovan to get going. But it has slowly became this years best new show, and I think it will be a hit for many years. The acting is some of the best I have seen, there are so many talented people on this show. Give this show a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked October 26, 2013
By ShaRon
Format:DVD
Man, I cannot believe how I am hooked on this. From the first episode, I could not help but love this series. There has not be one episode that is not addicting and the writing is so well done. Love Leib S and all the rest. Never was crazy about John Voight but he is terrific in this role.

5.0 out of 5 stars A world where money can fix any indiscretion August 19, 2014
By Sussman
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars What did you do Raymond? December 14, 2013
Format:DVD
GREAT new show. Something for everybody, assuming you enjoy crazy people, stereotypes, boxing, and well written scripts. Jon Voight is just too good as Ray's Dad. As with all addicting shows, the casting is spot on, the writing good to great, and the end of each episode always leaves you wanting more. Can't want for season two.

3.0 out of 5 stars A family spat May 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
Ray Donovan was not what I was expecting. I was expecting an Ann Biderman production in the vein of her own previous series, Southland, a visceral survey of a professional's life and tradecraft sprinkled with interesting personal circumstances.

But Ray Donovan, at least in its first season, is the reverse: it's mostly about his family; how his recently released convict father ingratiates himself with Ray's wife and kids, and undermines their trust in Ray; and how Ray's indiscretions, his murky animosity towards his father, and his plottings entangle circumstances and precipitate one heartbreak or murder after another. It's familial inanity, west coast style: Rescue Me with less sex, cleaner streets, less shouting, and more brooding. The theme seems to be: loyalty conquers all. Even if you have to murder a few people to prove it.

In what spare episodic coverage there is of Ray Donovan's profession as a Hollywood "fixer," his primary tools of choice are usually nothing more than thuggery, and the only finesse involved is in his delivery of blackmail or impending violence. But maybe that's how things get done in Hollywood.

The cast and the acting are superb. Jon Voigt pulls off a compelling sleazy, crude, and stupid Mickey "Can You Twerk" Donovan, Ray's father. Eddie Marsen, who plays one of Ray's brothers, is surprisingly likable and cultivates a love story that at times is more interesting than the central plot. Elliot Gould as Ray's mentor, turns from quirky to medicated on a dime. Katherine Moennig as one of Ray's operative is an angry, off-kilter cipher that hopefully will see further character development in subsequent seasons.

Ray Donovan isn't bad; it's entertaining. But with Ann Biderman as its creator, and tooled up with a high-caliber actor as Liev Schreiber, I expected an interesting study of man and profession, not a season-long family spat.
