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.

Cody Family Values
14 June 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Without losing a step the Australian hit film Animal Kingdom got a new location to southern California where Los Angeles takes the place of Melbourne. But even the family name Cody remains the same and the plot structure of the film the same. Whether it can last as a television series is open to question.

Young Finn Cole is numb from the death of his mother from a heroin overdose. His family such as they are take him in. They are some crew and by the way I don't think the choice of Cody as the name of the grandson is an accident.

For Ellen Barkin family matriarch is a combination of Victoria Barkley and Margaret Wycherly from White Heat. Imagine if Ma Jarrett had raised a flock of children just like James Cagney and you've got some idea of what the Cody family is like.

I will say that crime pays quite handsomely for the Codys. In the first episode check the look of wonder when Ellen Barkin takes Cole around the palatial estate they have and he meets his uncles. I'm wondering how they haven't attracted the attention of the IRS.

The premise of the show is whether Finn Cole will be saved from the family business. Is it enough to get the series renewed, who knows? Another premise is that Cole is also looking for his unknown father and that might be worth an episode or two.

I liked the Australian movie, I liked this American adaption. Can it keep gong? I guess it's up to the writers.
