  • TV Picks: 'Ray Donovan,' 'Matador,' NOLA on 'P.O.V.'

    TV Picks: 'Ray Donovan,' 'Matador,' NOLA on 'P.O.V.'
    "Ray Donovan" (Showtime, Sundays). Ann Biderman's series about a Hollywood fixer, the dysfunctional (Boston Irish) family he came from and the dysfunctional family he heads begins a second season. (The last finished with revealed secrets, a degree of reconciliation and recovery, and the blood of James Woods.) As antiheroes go, Ray is among the anti-est -- that he sometimes does bad things for good reasons, and that he is usually on the side of better people against worse ones, doesn't make the bad things particularly less bad. But Liev Schreiber's performance, like that of (Emmy-nominated) Jon Voight as his troublesome father Mickey, is so balanced and nuanced, so subtle and unshowy and so palpably wounded that Ray remains, if not always likable, usually relatable. It helps too that, while he is abnormally good at solving other people's problems on the fly, we also see the limits of his comprehension, of his authority and of his ability to manage the very things that cause him the most pain. (As the new season opens, he is sublimating his anger with sex; Mickey, some miles to the south, is having a spiritual experience with a dolphin.)
