I rented the DVD and I thought it was a movie. Turns out it's a mini-series. But either way I thought it was awesome. I thought the performances were very good especially the brothers. Lafayette's scenes in part one were heartfelt. The setting and the language that the characters used helped me to get into the action. I like how each of the brothers developed in character throughout the series. I also think it was directed well. I won't be surprised if this is made into a drama.
I am surprised, however, that this was made by a Nickelodeon spin-off channel. It was put together very well.
