Did You Know?


In the Season 1 opening title sequences, if you look carefully, the pictures next to the actors' names are connected in some way to their characters whether it was something they did or something about their character. For example, next to Ulrich Thomsen's (Proctor) name there's a picture of an Amish woman and a picture of a butcher knife relating to his past and occupation. Frankie Faison (Sugar) has a picture of his title fight next to his name. See more »


The USMC Marines from Camp Genoa are seen in town in their digital (deployment) uniforms. Marines cannot wear those off base other than being in actual field training or combat. For the bar and town scenes, they would be in some combination of the Alpha or Bravo uniform, the dress green blouse and trousers with the Khaki shirt and tie. Or at more formal events, in their blues. See more »

I don't agree with some of these harsh reviews - I find it to be an EXCELLENT series, with the genius touch of Alan Ball (6 Feet Under, True Blood) - yes, there are some imperfections, but the 4 leads work great: the hero, Antony Starr, is cool and tough, the babe, Ivana Milicevic, is SMOKIN' hot, and a legitimate actress, the Pennsylvania Dutch mob boss, Ulrich Thomsen, is uniquely menacing, and the bartender buddy, Frankie Faison, gets the job done as usual. The supporting cast are also excellent (deputies, thugs, etc). The pace is snappy, the plot moves nicely and with suspense,the action is brutal, and I'm definitely hooked on it.
