Stylishly shot and strongly written.

The cynosure of Ray Donovan is Schreiber as the doughty hero, a tough guy who dances.

June 29, 2013 | Full Review…

Ray Donovan, created and produced by Ann Biderman (Southland) is good enough that it should evoke comparisons to David Chase's Italian antihero tale.

June 30, 2013 | Full Review…

In all cases, this is one of the smartest series to come around in a while, sharply written with a perfect balance of comedy and tragedy, action and reflection.

June 28, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

This fantastic new Showtime drama is that wonder of TV wonders, a low concept series that can't be easily reduced to a quick sentence.

June 27, 2013 | Full Review…

Schreiber brings fortified steel to the title role while Voight makes this series shake, rattle and pulsate.
