Very underrated show. The dynamics of the family and the business has some resemblance to The Sopranos.

 

The major character difference between Carmela Soprano and Abby Donovan is Carmela knew to stay out of the biz while Abby is always asking and trying to pry into Ray's business in an effort to learn more about the man she thought she married and who's children she bore.

 

If there is a weak character within the script, it's Elliott Gould's Ezra Goodman character. We know there is some lengthy history with Ray complete with a closet full of skeletons, but nothing has been elaborated thru the first season to explain any of this.

 

Jon Voight as Mickey Donovan is a real piece of work too. How anyone believes or goes along with this guy is beyond me, the show doesn't give any of his foils the benefit of the doubt as just a bunch of morons who follow this guy.

 

The addition of Hank Azaria as the new FBI boss should add some substance to the season.

yeah already episode 7....but this season hasn't been as good as the first. still like that they deal with the family side more than the Sopranos did.
