Storyline

In prohibition era Chicago, the ambitious criminal Al Capone moves in to exploit an immense bootleg market for his own profit. Together with his second, the cold-bloodedly practical Frank Nitti, Capone manages to unite the various local crime lords under his leadership and create an incredibly powerful crime syndicate. Through the use of alluring bribery to corrupt the local authorities for his purposes and brutal violence to cow or eliminate the more principled, it seems that Al Capone is above the law. However, the gang makes the critical mistake of irritating the US President one night, and the decision is made to bring Capone to justice. To that end, US Treasury agent Eliot Ness is assigned the task. Ness, who is utterly incensed by the gang violence and corruption that Capone embodies, soon learns that he cannot depend on the local police in this crusade with their rife corruption.

A few comments to make...
19 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Yes, this really was a great show. Two corrections to make on the previous comments that were left: a) The show DID last more than one season; it was on for two. The show ran from January 1993 to September 1994 (the last new episode aired in June 1994). b) Second, it was not on FOX, but on UPN (or whatever they called themselves in the early 90s; it may have been "Universal 9" here in the NY area.)

I think the show ended because William Forsythe announced he was not coming back for a third year. Also, I remember there was some controversy back in 1993 because there was a healthy dose of ethnic slurs on the program, directly mostly towards Italians, Irish, and Poles, and some Italian-American groups were offended by it.
