News & Interviews for Ray Donovan: Season 3
[It] doesn't appear to have shifted much in its themes or delivery, but it's heartening to see that, in moving on from Goldman & Drexler and Elliot Gould's role as Ray's mentor, it's aiming to give Ray a more carefully-sketched relationship with his boss.
The best news for the show is the arrival of Ian McShane as Malcolm Finney, a slippery rich guy who contracts for Ray's services.
With the first couple of episodes as guide, Donovan is in good shape.
Take away the foul language, sex scenes and occasional bursts of gory violence, and it's very, very ordinary.
The entire world of Ray Donovan feels typified by nothing more than pent-up machismo.
Because Schreiber's character is so brooding and emotionally clenched, though, the series heavily relies on its supporting players and guest stars, which is where the opening salvo feels relatively malnourished.
Ray Donovan seems to occupy a second-tier status among classy cable dramas, but it's sometimes as good as almost anything else out there.
Ray Donovan remains a potent mix of pathos and dark comedy.
Everything rides on Liev Schreiber's shoulders, who manages to avoid monotony despite the narrow slit of affect and emotion permitted his persona through sheer force of concentration and imposing presence.
Audience Reviews for Ray Donovan: Season 3
Feb 21, 2016Ray Donovan's third season is an unquestioned improvement of its previous season. Theres less emphasis on some warn family dynamics, notably the nearly insufferable melodrama between Ray and Abby, and more on what makes Ray, Rayun-measureable brooding intensity and fortitude with a notable troubled undercurrent. The season has some interesting storylines, and features some great guest stars, especially Ian McShane. Theres some development from Rays brothers and we see a growing tiredness with Mickeybut also some groundwork that will make for strong exploration later. Yet, in typical Donovan style, the series remains prone to over-the-top melodrama, and sometimes gets away from itself. The show is at its best when its dark, serious, and intricate. This season offered some of that, and hopefully subsequent seasons will have more to come.Jeffrey M Super Reviewer
May 31, 2020Love Katherine Moennig, she is outstanding and Liev, bu a BIG no to Jon Voight. Omg so annoying and tedious.
Feb 07, 2020Great show great acting
Oct 09, 2018I am beginning to realize that "time" in this series isn't really linear it only appears linear. In reality we are time traveling to and fro through various fascists of details that re-appear sometimes from different angles. Ray re-obtains his wits, but it isn't quite as good as the first season. The delivery of the story follows a very similarly "themed" style from season 1. Several twists kept me entertained and it was worth watching.
Mar 09, 2017Mixing up Ray's family with his danger and drama COULD make the show more intriguing but it's honestly just a mess. I miss the clean story lines from season 1. That said, the action in this show is so good, I will definitely watch the next season.
Jun 14, 2016Problems as far as the eye can see, everyone character in the set has something going on, it's necessary for the fire department to work 24/7. Saying this, it's the most interesting and entertaining season yet, with both Katie Holmes and Ian McShane giving it quite some extra..
Mar 24, 2016come la stagione precedente, anche se con tanti cambiamenti. c'è sempre la sensazione che manchi quel qualcosa in più, ma rimane tantissima roba. SPOILER: ray piange per la prima volta. boys don't cry.
Jan 07, 2016Best show ever aired on television.
Dec 28, 2015I like this show and love the character, but I marathon watch this series and one episode can be amazing and then the next can be a disappointment. This is one that you will either love or hate. You just have to give it a try
Oct 18, 2015I loved so much the first two seasons and I was so much disappointed with the third. It never created in me the passion and the burning desire to watch a new episode. Hope the fourth will be better, otherwise I will not waste my time watching it.
