User Reviews

Over-rated so far.
4 February 2003 | by Speedy-GonzalezSee all my reviews

The first episode was weak. Perpetuating negative stereotype personas of Hispanics people is the premise of the show but there still could have been more original writing than simply stealing ideas from "The Sopranos." The wife character is ugly, too. If there going to stereotype: the new Kingpin should have a hot wife like in the Rap videos. There are plenty of hot latina women on Univision.
