Storyline

Inside The Gangsters' Code follows ex-mafia street boss Lou Ferrante as he explores different gang cultures, their characters, and their inner workings. Lou travels the globe - from Naples to New Mexico - and immerses himself in their respective cultures, both inside and outside of prisons. He lives alongside prisoners, talk to guards, get under the skin of gang members, and meets top tier 'soldiers', following the trail of gang power from prison to the outside world, meeting key figures and family to provide an insider's perspective of a notoriously clandestine world. These gangs rule the streets from inside prison walls, while running activities from behind bars and controlling the communities living outside. Lou will set out to explain their origins, history, partners, motivations and political sway in more personal detail and with an insight and passion never before applied to the subject.

Excellent Look at the Underworld

Louis Ferrante is an ex-Gambino member who ran his own crew and went to jail for 8 years. He has written a book titled "Unlocked," detailing the exploits of his life in the Mafia. It also recounts the transformation he made in jail that would enable him to be a productive member of society upon release.

His unique background enables him to infiltrate gang after gang on this show, and his former life really shows in his tactics and way of conducting himself. The show is interesting, if you're interested in gang life (not on a personal level, but more on a sociological level, as a thing to be understood). Some of the characters he meets are killers, and he sits down with these people, and asks them the difficult questions, pushing boundaries, and often coming away with more information than the interviewee would have preferred to share.

The show may not be successful in the long run, though. It brings to mind the criticism of Seinfeld, when it first aired- that it was too "New York-y." He definitely has a Italian-Brooklynite way of talking and conducting himself. I grew up around these types, so it's not too abrasive on my ears. But to some, it may be too much to handle.

I, for one, really enjoyed all five episodes, and would love to see more.
