I have watched nearly every episode of this series.
The plots are based on the memoirs of the real life gangster squad detective and - for me - I prefer this show without the narration of the Untouchables which was spoken in capital letters throughout.
This was a good series and is well worth a look, there is a realism about the way ordinary people were frightened into submission and there isn't the epilogue at the end of each episode which so ruins many shows.
Each episode starts with a slide show detailing the thugs who feature and there is no sympathy from Ruditsky for any of them. What makes this series really great is the fact that the real life Barney Ruditsky was technical adviser - there is an understated realism in each episode.
Believable characters and real stories - well worth a watch.
