Never could get interested in ER, by way of example, but thoroughly enjoyed "Falcone". These people of necessity were inscrutable at times--cover your feelings or be found out, or lose your power over your gang. Very complex situations. Have to remember some "easterners" have different cultural "faces" than "mid-westerners". The acting had to be very much controlled and the eyes had to do a lot of the talking.
Too bad families might really have to go through such a life-style to catch criminals.
