An extremely clever, funny, adult, violent piece of crime drama
An extremely clever, funny, adult, violent piece of crime drama, set in Montreal, Canada, in the 1970's. Each episode revolves around a radio-journalist, Mac, who embodies all the requisite traits: tall, dark, handsome, driven, confident, suave, flawed and emotional He also possesses something essential that ultimately drives the show: his utter and complete obsession with crime, crime lore, and criminals. It is through his passion for outlaws that connects him to Montreal's criminal underworld as well as their law-enforcement antagonists by virtue of his being media-neutral. He finds himself repeatedly as mediator and unwitting negotiator between criminals and policemen and he succeeds wildly in gaining local fame, garnering trust within the criminal element and becoming, in the police's view, a necessary evil. Well written, beautifully acted and immensely entertaining. 9/10.
