Storyline

A gritty fact based drama series that tells the astonishing story of a drug dealer who was arrested then given a desperate ultimatum: serve over 20 years in jail, or go undercover inside one of America's most notorious biker gangs. Charles Falco opted to go undercover and for the next three years he led a crazy and dangerous life infiltrating the Vagos motorcycle gang, collecting evidence while faced with the constant risk that he might be discovered and become one of the gang's victims. Each episode unfolds a different step in Falco's covert investigation into their illegal activities, while across the series, the drama builds as carefully constructed character arcs unfold bitter personal rivalries. These tensions finally erupt when the gang's Vice President is killed in a motorcycle accident, unleashing a chain of unforeseen consequences that ultimately tear the gang apart. With suspicions about Falco's true identity mounting, the operation threatens to unravel, leading to a tense ...

Pretty darn good
3 April 2015 | by Gretel1006See all my reviews

I ended up watching episode 1 only because it came on after Vikings. I enjoy watching TV shows/movies that are based on true life. (I do go into these knowing that some leeway has to be given to the facts so that it can make for good TV viewing.). So I was pretty interested in checking out "Falco's" undercover story to see real-life danger and a world that is completely different than my own.

As I watched this episode it kept cutting away to have the real Falco give some narration. It seemed quite disruptive and irritating especially when it happened during a tense action scene. I just wanted to be able to watch the characters interact - to get to the meat. I remember thinking that The History Channel really messed up what could have been an otherwise great TV show.

I ended up giving it a second chance and I am glad I did. The show continued to have Falco give a personal accounting, but they were able to make it flow more smoothly into the story. And actually, I appreciated having more insight into what he was thinking and feeling. The show really picked up.

I just watched episode 6......What?! That's it? Even though Falco spent 3 years of his life infiltrating this often vicious gang it gets condensed down to 6 shows? What a disappointment. I would think that given the huge success of Sons of Anarchy that there would be tons of people wanting to see into the real existence of a Biker Club/gang. It's confusing that they only put out 6 episodes. But 6 episodes is all we get. When I think of the overall cohesiveness, it seems like key information is lacking which could've been resolved with a longer first season. Regardless, I do really like the show.

It was pretty incredible to see the dire situations that Falco got into and see how well he thought on his feet and how he managed to get out of the hot-seat. It liked seeing a more realistic view on the biker lifestyle. Another positive is that it didn't portray a romanticized version of being an outlaw like SOA often did, but made sure to point out the criminal activities.

I would be happy to find out that The History Channel is going to have another season and show Falco's next undercover assignment. I believe he infiltrated biker clubs/gangs a total of 2 or 3 times.
