Very Good!
10 October 2018 | by superbradbwSee all my reviews

Being a long time fan of historical drama's and things of the sort, I was pleasantly surprised by the series. While not necessarily completely accurate it's clear it's not really trying to be. It puts a dramatised style behind the Mob of both New York and Chicago. I personally loved it and It did something that many documentary series can't do to the average viewer- it kept them interested, I know it kept me hooked. Being someone who knows nothing about the American mobs to me it's the fact that this show has inspired me to learn more, and patch that inaccuracy that may come through. I heavily suggest a watch!
