  Ray Donovan: The Fifth Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 1/25/18

Ray Donovan is a very good drama, and it's been around a while now. A major character dies in this season, so that has a huge impact. In season 6, Ray and the series are moving to New York.

If you've watched the first 4 seasons, you will love this one as well. As usual, Ray has to juggle his job, his family, and legal problems. The writing is always very good, which keeps it from getting boring. Plus, the cast is outstanding.

The DVD set has all of the usual features and extras, if you like to watch that kind of thing. I usually don't have time to watch them, but they're enjoyable. You should definitely watch the first 4 seasons or you might be lost.
