While i don't think "Shelley Duvall", 6 th episode of "Ray Donovan" season 5 was was poor, its surely is moons away from greatness this show once produced. And "once" in this case wasn't that far away - i highly enjoyed all 4 previous seasons, but this one to be honest does drag and its not as involving as previous once. Sure acting is on highest notes here as usual, but its the story and storytelling of this season that doesn't compare to previous ones. Here we have an Oscar winner Susan Sarandon, which role in here to be honest i do not even really understand nor do i care about - this is because of kinda uninvolving writing. And while i do see the path this season is taking in Abbies direction, even those scenes started to drag - while this show never was about "action" in a first place, but any lack of it during this season doesn't add to its overall value.
Overall, with half of the season done already, unfortunately at the moment this is the most disappointing season yet. Being a fan of this show, i do hope (and believe) that they will make things more interesting pretty soon, but at the moment its pretty empty season so far.
