Storyline

The series centers on 17-year-old Joshua "J" Cody, who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose. Headed by boot-tough matriarch Janine "Smurf" Cody and her right-hand Baz, who runs the business and calls the shots, the clan also consists of Pope, the oldest and most dangerous of the Cody boys; Craig, the tough and fearless middle son; and Deran, the troubled, suspicious "baby" of the family.

A power struggle a class and cast system of raw dirt, ego and tough love!
23 June 2016 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

"TNT's" new series "Animal Kingdom" is one that pushes the limit of cable TV it's a brash, provocative, and outspoken family crime drama that takes no prisoners. Based somewhat on the 2010 film of the same name, the series follows the life and crime adventures of one southern California family. The head leader is the tough and sexy cougar mother and grandmother Smurf(the still sexy Ellen Barkin)who helps run the show of money, bribes, heist, and criminal jobs with the help of her sons and the one that is the standout to me is the adopted one Baz(Scott Speedman)and enter her young hormone driven grandson Cody(Shawn Hatosy)who joins the crew after his mother dies from a drug overdose. And boy I must say this series is well spiced up with plenty of vices like sex, drugs, and family drama really those themes top the blood and violence of the series. Really this is one cool wild kick butt California sun and ocean series.
