Ray Donovan: Season 2 Reviews

July 3, 2018
There was hope that in its second season this overstuffed series could reshape itself into something leaner and more entertaining.But sadly, like its main character, Ray Donovan seems incapable of learning from its past blunders.

Jon Voight's performance as the pathetic patriarch is awe-inspiring, and the machismo on display by Liev Schreiber is transfixing.

It could be the most astounding creation on television now, even in a second season, [the] first five episodes are like tentacles of an octopus that reaches out and drags you in.

From the first scene in Ray Donovan Season 2 Episode 1 until the last, Liev Schreiber commands attention with his portrayal of the titular character.

Overall, it made for pretty decent television and I look forward to covering the second season of the show.

Luckily, the show has Schreiber around to continually save it from the kind of embarrassing scrapes Ray is repeatedly asked to fix for his lawyer boss (Elliott Gould).

Ray Donovan remains somewhat limited in its appeal -- featuring colorful characters, yes, but at times constricted by Ray's cowboy nature, which includes a professional knack for finding weak spots and exploiting them.

Gritty, moody, raw, Ray Donovan is a two-fisted drama packed with sensational players handed marvelously crafted roles.

Ray Donovan is a sun-bleached noir and a character actor's paradise.
July 11, 2014
Ray Donovan is in the remarkable position of being a show that appears to be built entirely of moments that are gratuitous, provocative, and emptily thrilling.
