Did You Know?


McMafia is a book by Misha Glenny about global crime written ten years ago. Many crimes/scams of the book have been included in the television series but it is the Russian chapters that formed the basis for the programme. Certain characters are based on real people and real events. The name McMafia refers to the way criminal syndicates would 'lend' the use of their name to smaller criminal gangs for a fee (such as a small Russian gang using the 'chechyn mafia' name to make intimidation and extortion easier because of the Chechyn mob's feared reputation) This is where the 'franchising' idea like that of McDonald's relates to 'McMafia'.

The title has to do with a conversation (no spoilers) in the first episode referring to competing and becoming better than McDonald's. The way is told is brilliant, but I mention that because why McMafia?

This series 3 episodes are effing incredibly paced, and feel so real in its depiction of how the criminal underworld is operated today. I'm a big fan of series Gommora, so when show try to capture and execute this genre, I have very high standards.

The lead is perfect, actually the whole cast is brilliantly selected, and of course bring exceptionally acting. Remember you read it here first, this series will be a MASSIVE HIT! It has so much going for it, and so many avenues to go down. It's the best shows of 2018! After the first episode I knew this show was something special! Each episode offers a lot of punch too. Meaning this will be a pace episode-wise with peaky blinders where there is no episode wasted on filler just straight thriller! I finally found an appointment tv show of the week since the last show I was watching wrapped up.

I find today more then ever when someone says it's must see TV, you have to at least give it a chance. With all the content flooding tv, if this is appointment TV, then it's that good! Watch the first episode and thank me! Enjoy
