Goofs

Corcoran and company are Irish immigrants working for the Metropolitan Police. The Metropolitan Police was formed by the state in 1857 as a counter to the pre-existing municipal police, and they were rival agencies. Irish immigrants worked almost exclusively for the municipal police rather than the Metropolitan Police, so it is highly unlikely that a Metropolitan Police precinct would would have been manned mainly by Irish.

User Reviews

 
Excellent acting. Excellent historical coverage.
21 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

The historical evidence is correct. The cast is well assembled with unknowns in America. I sense Shakespearean acting experience in the deliveries of several of the cast members. This elevates the performances. I like the idea of the "mystery" presented in the first episode. This allows background to build along the way. Several openings were exposed for this material to grow. The beginnings of a budding city that will become a great city has major growing pains. The plot demonstrates this well. I enjoyed the artistry in showing the distinctions between the class system strongly evident in early America. The strength of the Irish element is excellently portrayed.
