Storyline

The Ropes is an inside look into the hilarious, yet explosive world of nightclub bouncing. The series follows the charismatic young Martin, who hustles his way into a job as a bouncer only to be taken under the wing of Big Vic, the club's legendary head bouncer who prides himself on being the epitome of a fighter and ladies man. But soon, Martin is lured into the nefarious underworld by Les, another bouncer with his own crooked outlook. It's then that Martin must wrestle with his head and heart as he navigates a world shaped by bribes, beautiful women, but most importantly brotherhood. Written by The Ropes Production

Good job Vin!!
17 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first I was skeptical when I stumbled on this title on crackle.com, however I really got into the story. After watching the end credits of the last, I found myself here searching for new episodes :-p. The characters really pull you in. At the beginning, I really didn't know who to root for (characteristic of most of Vin's roles), but toward the end of each episode it gives you just a little nudge who the REAL villain is. The Ropes is full of anti-heroes (and heroines) from Stacey (Rizzio's right hand woman) even to Ralphie. Reminiscent of NYPD blue, it makes for a good half hour of television. I am not a huge fan of all the profanity, (the episodes on crackle are NR so I suppose that allows them to get away with it) but I can surely see this show doing very well on FX or another station like it (if Mr. Diesel ever wanted to branch out of the internet.) Also, the camera jumps a bit much on a few episodes, making some of the good action sequences hard to follow at times. I never knew the life of a bouncer could be so sordid until I saw The Ropes, but it DID make me want to know more and I am eagerly awaiting the next episode!
