Critic Reviews for Ray Donovan Season 1

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (24)

Stylishly shot and strongly written.

Jul 1, 2013 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

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

Jun 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.

Jun 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.

Jun 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.

Jun 27, 2013 | Full Review…

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

Top Critic

Ray Donovan gets off to slow start but delivers an extremely compelling portrait of a unique working class family.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The first four episodes of Ray Donovan suggest a Sopranos-type tone and approach, and that, of course, is high praise.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

I've seen the first four episodes, and when Ray's actually cleaning up messes, the show's not bad. But when he's not-boy, is the family stuff a tedious mess.

Mar 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Schreiber looks as comfortable busting heads (with a baseball bat) in the body of a Hollywood "fixer" as he does coddling his spoiled, social-climbing wife and kids.
