The Best Series Ever!
30 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best series ever made!! The only one comparable is the Shield. The Brotherhood makes the Sopranos look like something written by 4th graders... and the product placement has gone too far!! I have been ranting about Bro-hood to everyone I know. Weird thing is- NONE of these people have even heard of it!! They are all Sopranos faithfuls, and once they checked this out- addicted for life!! Wish they were marketing it a bit heavier so's to get the following it rightly deserves... And thanks for actually having integrity (to the writers/producers) to NOT sell out a good script to market this to the masses of as$e$!! Hope there will be a LOT more seasons of this!!! (And when is the second season starting?? I am going crazy with anticipation!!)
