Ray Donovan

description

"Ray Donovan" is an American television crime drama series that aired from 2013 to 2020. The show centers around the titular character, Ray Donovan, who works as a professional "fixer" for the rich and famous in Los Angeles. Ray's job is to make their problems disappear, whether it be covering up a scandal or silencing a witness. However, his own troubled past and complicated family dynamics often get in the way of his work and personal life.

Throughout the series, Ray must navigate his relationships with his estranged wife, Abby, and his two troubled brothers, Terry and Bunchy, who have their own share of problems. The show also explores themes of power, corruption, and the dark side of the American Dream. As Ray delves deeper into the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, he becomes entangled in dangerous and often deadly situations that put his own life at risk.

"Ray Donovan" was praised for its gritty and realistic portrayal of Los Angeles and its complex characters. The show was also noted for its strong performances, particularly by Liev Schreiber in the lead role. However, the series faced criticism for its inconsistent writing and uneven pacing in later seasons. Despite this, "Ray Donovan" remains a popular crime drama that explores the darker side of Hollywood and the toll it takes on those who inhabit it.

Nashville

2011
Drama
If you liked Thelma & Louise, Mad Money and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, then you are probably a fan of award-winning screenwriter Callie Khouri. Her talented writing had secured ABC's new television series Nashville positions as a huge hit of 2012-2013 seasons. The TV show depicts life and struggle of country music star Rayna James to get back on the big stage. Her last chance is her next promo tour, which she has no chances to fail, just because if she fails, her future career as country music star will be very questionable if possible at all. To make chances higher, Rayna takes in her tour, a young starlet Juliette Barnes, whose young sexy power is expected to be in some help to make Rayna's promotion more effective. There are no doubts that both singers are pursuing their own goals. If, the first one wants not to fade away from stardom, the second one wants to take her place in the stage. The next problem is that Rayna's father, Lamar Wyatt, who is powerful politician and a wealthy man of Nashville, seems to be disapproved in Ryana's abilities to regain her stardom glory. As a controlling patriarch he's betting on Rayna's husband, Teddy Conrad, who was living on Rayna's revenues, and now is trying to make a career as mayor of Nashville (thanks to help of a father-in-law). Such a twisted plot is accompanied by masterfully selected and combined ensemble cast: Ryana James is played by Connie Britton (a Vivien Harmon in American Horror Story and Diane Huxley in 24 television series), while the young teenage music star Juliette Barnes, is played by Hayden Panettiere (Kirby Reed in Scream franchise.)

Mercy

2011
Drama
One of two intense medical dramas NBC introduced in the fall of 2009, "Mercy" had all the advantages its one-named rival "Trauma" did not. First, it had talent behind the scenes. Liz Heldens from "Friday Night Lights" created the show and led the writers, proving once again that the best way to dramatize the real world is to show it realistically"”ugliness and all. Second, it had attitude and guts to stay true to its revolutionary premise, the well-informed notion "that nurses remain [not only] more generous caregivers, but that they are more intuitively apt, smarter, more committed and as technically able as their [physician] superiors, with none of the accompanying arrogance." In a winner-take-all ER smackdown, you always would go all-in with the Mercy Hospital nurses. The main character, nurse Veronica Flanagan Callahan, has just returned from a tour in Iraq, where she clearly learned more in each day than the pompous, presumptuous doctors learned in all five years of medical school. Of course, Veronica gets neither the respect nor the reward she deserves, but "Mercy" dangles the possibility of true love as just recompense for Veronica's skill and compassion. Taylor Schilling plays Veronica with exactly the right balance of toughness and vulnerability, skillfully juxtaposing her consummate skill as a nurse with her intrepid ingenuousness in matters of the heart. If only "Mercy" had survived into a second season, all the tangled threads in the story might have come to their proper denouement. If only.

Damages

2010
Drama
Intensely cerebral, narrated more or less in the style of a Latin American magic-realist novel which shows the conclusion before the story begins, "Damages" TV show strangely fulfills the immanent promise in cable television programming, appealing very strongly to what the poet Milton called "fit audience though few." "Damages" series'unmistakable style, sophistication, and subtle sizzle are spellbinding, and the writers have crafted heroes you love to love and villains you love to hate with a team of attorneys working both sides of the continental divide between good and evil. Unabashedly stealing its premise from the Bernie Madoff case, "Damages" asks and answers, "What if you were Madoff's antagonist?" Glenn Close plays Patty Hewes, the high-powered and equally high-priced attorney determined to bring down ponzi-schemer Louis Tobin, portrayed by Len Cariou. The word "perfect" appears in most critics' discussions of their performances. A New York Times reviewer aptly summarized, "It's impossible to overestimate how delicious Ms. Close is as this fiercely driven, mercurial and manipulative woman. " In a stroke of casting genius, the producers chose Lily Tomlin to quicken the character of Mrs. Tobin, long-suffering wife of the arch-villain; the audience remains in suspense about her true colors and motives, suspecting she may be "Damages'" answer to Lady Macbeth. Martin Short also stars as Tobin's family attorney.
