Once again, only time for a quick review, as we've gone directly into two weeks of TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour coverage following Comic-Con. Back on a normal schedule next week.
After what felt like a somewhat disjointed episode last week, Ray Donovan found a more focused tone with "Housewarming." The fulcrum of this series really is this fractured family that is attempting, despite shattering trauma, to function. Ray's profession makes for an interesting side-story, or backdrop, that allows some levity into a series that might otherwise be in danger of treading into emotionally suffocating territory.
