See the first episode of Liev Schreiber's new Showtime drama Ray Donovan here
Here’s how badly Showtime wants you to check out their new crime/family drama, Ray Donovan.
They’re willing to let you see the first episode for free.
Showtime has released a YouTube video containing the debut episode of the series, featuring Liev Schreiber as a “fixer” in Hollywood who makes problems disappear for the wealthy and Jon Voight as his murderous, debauched father, recently out of prison.
The show itself is a tribute to characters who make all the wrong decisions, including Schreiber’s Donovan, a towering Irish hunk from south Boston who winds up sleeping with a client’s girlfriend and threatening to kill his father. Doesn’t help that one of his brothers was molested by a priest when he was a kid and the other is an ex-boxer suffering from Parkinsons disease.
This episode is available almost two weeks before it will air on Showtime; plenty of time for you to decide whether it (and the first episode of Dexter’s final season, which starts the same night) is worth your cash.
Personally, I give it two thumbs up…broken in a fight, of course.
