Very much "The Wire" like
24 January 2018 | by edgar-turnerSee all my reviews

Love the scenes of Chicago. I am guessing it's the southside. I've never seen the inner city of Chi Town. It tells the story of how it is and how one person's actions affects others. I like the humor mixed with the tough life. It's very real.
