I think "Falcone"is one of the best mafia shows I have ever seen. I liked it a lot better than "The Sopranos". Falcone's story line about an undercover agent becoming part of the mob is lot more interesting to me than what "The Sopranos" offers. I found the most dangerous guys in the mob to be a lot more threatening in "Falcone" than the ones in "The Sopranos". I thought the casting for "Falcone" was excellent. Titus Welliver as Sonny Boy became more powerful as the series unfolded. His acting was brilliant. Eric Roberts is always welcome and was good in "Falcone". "Falcone" consists of 9 hours that was shown on CBS. I am only sorry that the series wasn't continued. Jason Gedrick as the undercover agent was very good and so was Amy Carlson, the woman who played his beautiful wife. I would rate "Falcone" right up there with "Wiseguy" (the one with the late Ray Sharkey) and also I think "Falcone" was as good as the movie "GoodFellas".
