A truly amazing show. All the characters, though some might seem hollow, are extremely developed and interesting, the story is intriguing without becoming cliche and the show just keeps changing and evolving. Definitely recommended to everyone.

Absolutely LOVE this show, never miss an episode! Once u get to know the characters, u can't help but love them, or love to hate some of them. One of my favorite shows this time of year! I hope to see many more seasons as great as the past 3 have been, looking forward to at least 3-4 more great seasons! Ray says so much w/so little. His character is so deep you & intense, there r many layers to Ray Donovan. Liev Schreiber deserves some awards for this character!

Outstanding tv show with premium performances !!!!

This is a show with undeniable character work. There are few examples of things that I would call "perfectly cast" and this dives into the heart of that sentiment. Each and every person has a palpable relationship to the next and they are allowed to sit in their flaws. The time given to side plots isn't wasted. The standouts are Mickey, Abby, and Terry. The haunting power of family is what carries this show. I was a little let down with the "violent tough guy anti-hero" nature of Ray, but the series evolves past the idea that it's about him and his bad-assery. "Rotting' is the word that comes to mind. Like everyone is being eaten from the inside in the best kind of way. I give it a 7 because it is a good show. It's amazingly cast, intimately told, good, show. It's not genre bending. It's not "smart." It's not much beyond its casts' ability to carry out plot lines and scenarios you'll probably see coming. I don't like to give extra credit because the writers aren't lazy as that should be a staple of respecting your creation and those portraying it. The closest analogue that comes to mind is The Sopranos, but there's a reason that show I find practically perfect, and this one "good."

Hot damn...Never before has a tv show said so much without anybody actually saying anything. Liev is absolutely captivating, he deserves an Emmy for his preformance on this series.

Praying Netflix picks it up to continue the story.

let's hope for a season 8

Amazing, outstanding show, Liev Shreiber is incredible in this role, and all the others are incredible it like you are there with them and you come to know them. The cast is incredible You hate them and relate to them and love them. It will keep you hooked till the end and never fails to keep you on edge. 10/10 for this show. This show will never get what you expect that is the beauty of this show. Perfect.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
