Trivia

Once it was decided to be developed as a TV show, Terence Winter wrote the pilot but his idea was to hand over the show to George Mastras because he was busy with Boardwalk Empire (2010). The show took so long to be made that Winter ended up running it because "Boardwalk Empire" finished on its own. See more »

Goofs

A EIKI 16mm film projector is incorrectly used. Any fully trained projectionist would notice the error, that when projecting forwards, the take-up reel correctly rotates clockwise, however the supply reel incorrectly rotates anti-clockwise. Always when screening movies on a film projector, for all 8mm/9.5mm/16mm/35mm/70mm motion picture films that are not on platters, the supply reel and the take-up reel rotate clockwise when projecting forwards, and on 8mm/9.5mm/16mm film projectors, the supply reel and the take-up reel rotate anti-clockwise when projecting the film in reverse.

I loved this series and am so sad it is over
10 March 2017 | by lisa_mechelleSee all my reviews

I absolutely loved everything about this series and am so sad it was only one season. In my opinion, it was a work of art. The acting was superb, the story engaging and edgy, and the music was breathtaking. Clearly a labor of love by the creators. I recommend that you ignore the hateful reviews and try it for yourself. Just watched it in 2017 and loved every minute of the story.
