good summary, should have used different "mofia historian"
7 April 2015 | by jleininger-56609See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode, except I would have liked to see a more serious and less "showy" mafia historian. William Balsamo seemed too much like a character than a true historian, that could be taken seriously. I always enjoy listening to the narrator, he is always good. I am just disappointed with William Balsamo taking away from the show. It actually would have been better without all his "commentary". Could have done without all that. But overall enjoyed it and it was informative. The rest of the historians did a very good job. I really feel strongly about how Balsamo took away from the reality of it. Not to mention I cannot trust the words of people who do not show their eyes, like wearing sunglasses on a documentary interview.
