I really like Ray as a character, he reminds me of Tony Soprano, a dark, dangerous man who would kill anyone who decides to cross him but at the same time he is kind and nurturing to the ones that he loves.
There is this one scene where he shows how violent he can get if you cross him, it’s quite chilling.
I like the supporting characters as well, especially Jon Voigt’s who plays Micky Donovan, Ray’s father.
From the first episode you saw their conflict and what is considerably good about this show is that it started with a BANG, most series start quietly and as it develops, it gets better and better but not with Ray Donovan, if you haven’t watched the show then just watch the pilot and you will be convinced that this is a great show. Can’t wait for the release of the third season!
