Was hoping for something like "Ripper Street", but no
24 November 2015 | by milest-63199See all my reviews

The scenario and subject matter has lots of potential, but the plot lines and dialogue are underwritten, the actors mostly wooden (Angus MacFayden is the notable exception), and, in the early episodes the cinematography is also poor: flat lighting, quite static backgrounds always in focus (distracting and doesn't help tell the story) and looks like it was shot on CCTV cameras (in fact it was shot on the latest generation of HD/4K "pro-sumer" digital SLRs costing $2000 and probably with basic lenses rather than rented professional digital cameras with better quality and more flexible lenses with better ability to change focus within the scene.).

I did persist for a few episodes, and the later ones are a bit better all round and will pass the time but the production still could have cast better "unknown" actors in the lead roles, clearly the casting executive spent the least time possible and opted to employ actors who were presumably known to be reliable and available but just not very engaging on the small screen rather than taking a searching for new talent that could be more engaging.

I think the show is also not helped by the setting in Kansas City, Chicago or another big US city of the same period would have been more interesting visually (like Ripper Street) but probably harder and more expensive to film.
