Liev Schreiber, Jon Voight
On the second season of Showtime's Ray Donovan, Liev Schreiber's titular Hollywood fixer will have to find a way to fix his biggest problem: himself.
The drama's first season dealt primarily with Ray's complicated history with his father Mickey (Jon Voight), whom Ray eventually tried to have killed by Sully Sullivan (James Woods), one of Mickey's old Boston rivals. Although Mickey actually ended up killing Sully instead, the biggest twist of the first season revealed that Ray, like his brother Bunchy (Dash Mihok), had been sexually abused as a child by a priest.

While the revelation helped color exactly why Ray carries so much hatred for Mickey, who failed to protect his son, it also provides fertile ground for the show to explore its main character in Season 2. "It was a big reveal and we need to deal with it and we do," executive producerAnn Biderman tells TVGuide.com...
One war makes way for another as the incredibly durable Foyle's War, in its seventh Masterpiece Mystery! season on PBS, transitions from post-World War II intrigues to the ethically murky spy games of a burgeoning Cold War. "I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit," grumbles former police DCS Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen, radiating crisp intelligence and decency), who once again is denied his dreams of retirement when MI5 spooks reel him in, fresh off the boat from America.
Fixer, fix thyself. Easier said than done in the gaudy cesspool of soul-sucking mendacity we call Hollywood, where Ray Donovan plies his gruff trade as the strong and silent go-to problem-solver of the stars. Showtime's Ray Donovan (Sunday, 10/9c), the summer's best and boldest new show, is a Scandal for the serious-minded: outrageously compelling and teeming with sinister surprise, yet never seeming crazily sensational as it goes to emotional and violent extremes.

Another Wednesday, another delightful episode.Poor Ned. It looks like hes gone through most of his life being lonely. After he discovered his "gift," he kind of lost touch with people. Sensing something is amiss with Ned, Digby sets off to find him, but he somehow knows he and Ned arent allowed to touch. The only reason Im willing to go along with this little leap in logic is because this show is a fantasy. Well, thats not the only reason. I dont really have a problem with Digby being an extremely smart doggie who is able to infer "the rules" of Neds gift, but I did think wed get a little more on how Digbys managed to stay so youthful all these years. I know quite a few of you had questions about that as well.OK, thats my only quibble. Ned, Chuck and Emerson go to investigate a plane crash after Emerson smells some money in the suspicious circumstances. In the apartment, Chuck and Ned have a near-miss touching incident that leads...
