Best TV series ever?
14 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Boss will be seen as the best TV series ever, just as Hamlet is seen as the best play ever. They also have similarities. Just like Claudius, Mayor Tom Kane struggles to keep his power while being in constant conflict with frustrated and disappointed individuals. However, there is no protagonist, like the character Hamlet, in Boss. Instead the plot goes from strength to strength with Kelsey Grammar as antihero and spider in the net. He weaves a net of Machiavellian strategies that are so familiar to people working in politics, and the plot moves from complication to complication with the minor characters developing beautifully to fit into Kane's political net of power.

This is drama on the highest possible level, and this TV series will be used as benchmark for all future dramas. The casting is excellent and TV cannot be better than this.
