Quotes

[first lines]
Detective at prison: So, where are the bodies?
Joey Ice Cream: Oh, man. These guys are my friends.
Detective at prison: Here's the deal, Joey. You tell us where the bodies are, how they got there, and you stay in solitary, nice and safe. You lie, you go to general population where more people than I can count want to see you dead.
Detective Sunny: [throws a book down on the table harshly] Where are the bodies?

Wow
26 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I don't want to seem biased, but coming from an Irish background... I found the Black Donnellys to be amazing. I like movies and shows that deal with gangs... (i.e the Godfather). I love the plot so far... and to see how Tommy has changed to save his brother... I really can't wait for the next episode.

I thought the cast was good and good actors were selected, so hopefully this'll be a good show and won't be overshadowed by Heros, which comes on before it, but I think from what I've heard and seen is coming to a close in the series so, yeah just had to give my look on the show. Hope its a hit :-)
