What to tell you after watching this series? Just say the truth: I watched the series fast with difficulty, yawning and almost ready to fall asleep. Here right in the forehead: the series is insanely boring, despite that my hand Showtime. These magicians from the movie is always different than what they almost always release quality products. And I can't say not this time. It's just the movie is not mine! And this despite the pretty interesting topic totally corrupt American city — Boston, which at that time could bet that dubious criminal title with Chicago or new York.

That tell about casting actors play? And something else my opinion, perfect. Bacon in the role of villain in the uniform of an officer of the FBI — peerless. But the bastard, he is not unique. There is in it features with a plus sign. Kevin has always been such a complex character types. In death sentence (which has long been in my collection) it the hero is somewhat similar to Jackie Rohr. Same a tough character. Yes in General and other characters of the series was height played ten. This is famous for and Showtime. Each on its place. I would particularly like to highlight three actors: Hodge in the role of Prosecutor, Tucker in the role of loving father and husband and the main bandit-a robber, and O'brian — his brother, also a thug, yeah still unbalanced junkie. Characters is a lot, but these are definitely on the first plan.

But that's about the story itself is not can say very interesting. Intrigue — null all becomes clear it is clear who is Hu. In principle, the whole simple story could fit in full meter hours on 2-2,5. But there, stretched on nine too much "water". A lot of fuss and unnecessary dialogues. It seems the creators wanted to convey the atmosphere and spirit of Boston the late 80s. What well presented what? When creating a crime drama — it should keep the viewer in suspense, to weave intrigue to hold the attention. Here it do not close. And I expect it. Not grow together, not logged in. And still, TV series I don't like the innuendo, and its here at the end of the bulk. Even not sounded much soldered to the main character. Well, not hogging it! So honored

Ambitious Prosecutor failed in the court a simple case, losing in the game of an unscrupulous agent who knows the secret roads of the investigation, indicating the possibility of a compromise, to which will lead them mutually beneficial terms of cooperation of ambitious and the villain relating to the time of troubles of the last century, 90 years, when the crime is not give rest to civilians of Boston, where stole, laundered stolen, disappeared people and gangsters fought among themselves.

Neither good nor Valko, from the misty mist appear the faces of the other participants in the campaign for money power, where a in the same row to interlock the shoulders of bandits and police officers, the false priests and weak-willed simpletons involved in the big game, which began with raised up the archives, pulled over the ends of the long history that continues to hot pursuit of fresh crime, giving short pulses do not too rolling episodes of prolonged investigations where no pretty faces, and are commemorated on the integrity.

Mixing good and bad, evil and good, the writers are acting as the most ardent enemies of idealism, at which Boston became a town of sinners or people are not immaculate, a community with a hundred shades of black and white, cave in under the burden of the personal dwelling attributes, the model space of civil and family relations, the local cardboard drum with painted smiles or pursed lips, the coexistence of which is the result of a compromise changing in depends on the parties to the transaction, hinting at the that public relations — the essence of the compromise different social groups, they need only a point.

The intentions of the characters prilagayutsya motivation of their decisions, desires, dependencies, addictions, and none them heroic is gaining weight, is that Rory Culkin produces a few instant flashes in the molten image of a heroin junkie, but vague detective shroud, this story has a weak chance at the way to the junction as not to lose its audience, according to the rapid clearing losing to her what would any it was interest.
