    Anyone in on this? It feels Sopranos-y, but it kind of has that feel of getting too much hype.
    I've seen the name "Ray Donovan" everywhere for a week now, on sites and ads.

    Seems like it could be good tough, and I need Summer shows.

    Yes! It is on showtime so expect it to start out great and go downhill.

    I watched the first ep on demand. Not bad, I'll wait a few more episodes before shitting on it.
    Also not a Liev Schrieber fan.

    Me either. I also don't love Jon Voight.
    I think this is going to be a show where I wait 4-5 episodes and see what the haps is, and then marathon or not.

    How is a show Sopranos-y?

    While I'm a fan of both Schrieber and Voight, for some reason I always lose interest in a Showtime series after the first season is over. So I'm not sure if I'm going check out Ray Donovan.

    I liked the premise a lot. I rewatched it a day or so later with the gf and she also liked it.

    Great 2nd episode. As I was watching the second episode end I said "What a wonderfully flawed family"

    It is really good, after the first episode I was excited to see the second and now I'm psyched for the third. Some of the subplots are so uncomfortable but at the same time refreshing to see being tackled (Shameless is similar in that way but otherwise the shows couldn't be more different but both are excellent).

    The tranny couldn't possibly have put less effort into trying to appear female...

    Jon Voight was cracking me up at the pedo victim meeting.
