Gruesome yet riveting.
22 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not sure why kids would want to be like these gangsters. They are quite a horrible lot. I absolutely hate Nidge. That actor must be pretty awesome because he makes my skin crawl. I thought I hated John Boy and his whack brother in season 1-2 but Nidge is the worst of all. I find all this criminal life stuff depressing vs. "exciting". Hopeless, violent, evil. The beatings, shooting, strippers, hookers and all the murder. It is sad and depressing. I see no glamor in this. It is hard to watch all the brutality this show revels in. I did binge watch 4 seasons and watched the final season as they came out. It is it compelling TV, though depressing too. This show would be a hit in the USA on the right channel. It is very country specific so I hope no one tries to do a remake. The actors were all pretty terrific.
