Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

There’s little in television more disappointing than predictability. Some might argue that audiences need to be allowed to predict the events that will unfold in front of them for their own personal satisfaction, to prove their theories are correct and to provide the sense of satisfaction that comes with such prophetic fulfilment. I call bullshit on this theory.

Audiences want to be challenged, surprised, constantly kept on their toes. So when you bring in a new antagonistic force in the third season of a largely successful crime drama in a period setting based around real life characters and actual historical events, the end result can only be one of very things. And sadly enough, Gyp Rosetti’s demise was disappointingly foreseeable. One might argue that there was no place left for his character to go after losing the backing of big time gangster Joe Massaria »
