wise guy an Alltimeshow .

wise guy is an all-time show.after 20 years i still enjoy watching it,and all of my friends still remember agent 4587, frank,mike terrenova,sonny steel-Grave,Mel profit......etc.you see the whole idea of the show was original at that time ,and showed people new dimensions of the real relationship,between agents ,,Vinny,miketerrenovva, between undercover agents and criminals their after and how can things go nasty when they become really close,how can someone like Vinny terrenova gets over his feeling for steel-Grave&fulfills his moral duty as an OCB agent,this job that caused him 18 months in jail,the love&respect of his family most of all his beloved mother. personally i think these kind of shows gave us a real sense of what happens behind the close doors .i can go on forever but sadly I have to go. wise guy was ,is&will remain a brilliant show.
