Storyline

In the year 1977, Major league Baseball has officially inaugurated the free agent market. A baseball player named Reggie Jackson came to New York to sign a contract with the ball club called the "Yankees". But, what Jackson does not know that he will soon bring controversy to the club, by saying that he's the "Straw that stirs the drink", causing his fellow teammates especially, Thurman Munson to not like him. Plus, manager Billy Martin and owner George Steinbrenner also have their own private arguments about Jackson and the team. Meanwhile, other things are happening in New York as a killer using a .44 magnum and calling himself as "The Son Of Sam" is lurking around the city, and the infamous blackout.

Great Show!
14 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

It's nice to have something to watch after "The Soprano"s". That was the only show that I made a point to watch, and now it's "The Bronx is Burning". Remembering the Yankee's back then is very nostalgic, even though I was a big Dodger fan. I think John Turturro is Emmy worthy, his portrayal of Billy Martin is unbelievable. Pretty much everyone in the cast us right on. I had forgotten about all the drama that occurred back then with that team, but there's certainly plenty to reminisce about. I was wondering about the reaction that retired Yankee' have about this series? Even though though after the show there are interviews with them, what has been the buzz, overall?
