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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Ray Donovan: Season 3
Ray Donovan's third season is an unquestioned improvement of its previous season. There’s less emphasis on some warn family dynamics, notably the nearly insufferable melodrama between Ray and Abby, and more on what makes Ray, Ray—un-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. There’s some development from Ray’s brothers and we see a growing tiredness with Mickey—but 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 it’s dark, serious, and intricate. This season offered some of that, and hopefully subsequent seasons will have more to come.
