Trivia

Production designer Bernard Hides asked for an evergreen, leaf-bearing tree on one of the sets. Someone brought him a "Bottle Tree" (Brachychiton Populneus), an extremely common plant from Australia. Hides was asked if he was familiar with this variety and he replied that he had never seen a plant like it. Hides is a native of Australia and lived there most of his life. See more »

a stylish take on The Sopranos
30 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this show has been type-casted as the Sopranos on daytime TV. But i think this show is as good or if not better than the Sopranos. Kingpin is much more stylish with the camera and music then the Sopranos is and Kingpin hardly eases up there is constant action going on on screen. This show was made to be aired on Cable for the drug and violent content and i do believe this show could of beat out the Sopranos if it was made into a regular T.V. series and if it wasn't so restricted on content, overall if you like the Sopranos then you are more than likely love kingpin and even if you don't like the Sopranos you should give it a try for the massive amount of raw energy put in this TV Show.
