A wonderful, if short-lived series.
30 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really don't understand how this show was pulled because it was really excellent. I agree with one of the posters that the people behind it should have gone to HBO. Another possibility would have been F/X, where Boomtown would have found a good home in the company of The Shield, Rescue Me, and Nip 'n' Tuck.

Unfortunately, it ended up on network television where it lived a short life. Boomtown sported a wonderful cast, including Donnie Wahlberg, Neil McDonough, Mykelti Williamson (whom I remember when he was a kid on "Cover Up"), Jason Gedrick, and a story arc which featured the beautiful Vanessa Williams and Rebecca de Mornay.

Boomtown had a lot of style, interesting stories, and a great cast. It's no wonder NBC got rid of it. Bozos!
