This fantastic new Showtime drama is that wonder of TV wonders, a low concept series that can’t be easily reduced to a quick sentence. “Ray Donovan” is about many, many rich things, among them the PR underbelly of Hollywood stardom, the loathing between a man and his father, South Boston thugs on the wide streets of LA, the enduring injury of having been abused by a priest, a marriage in turmoil, and the lasting grief of the loss of a sister.

Liev Schreiber plays Ray, a “fixer” who cleans up the messes made by his high-powered Hollywood clients. A blockbuster-movie hunk gets caught with a transvestite? Call Ray. He’ll show up and take over, with the help of his loyal staff.
