Gang Related (2014)
Character drive, great cast! Awesome show.
Gang Related offers tremendous promise; well cast, stylistic in design, emotional and character driven, by the second episode, I was already hooked. The show takes place in Los Angeles, and follows Ryan Lopez, an esteemed detective of a gang task force, struggling to distance himself from his past (and current) connections to a notorious Latino gang. Ryan's story feels very well-crafted, and it's easy to sympathize with his position, being a double agent who truly wants to do the right thing. As a devoted fan of Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad (the later of which is similar in story-line), I think Gang Related could become one of the more stimulating, edgier shows on the Fox network. Some viewers complain about the lack of vulgar language coming from the gang members. I think this is purely idiotic. Yes, we know networks are limited in certain ways, but slighting a show based on lack of profanity says more about the viewer than it does the creators. The show also has a great soundtrack, and the cinematography and set-design is fantastic. But above all, there is a great story to be told, so if you're into that kind of thing, you know, TV shows that actually tell stories and delve into dimensional characters, then give Gang Related a chance.
