A story of family, loyalty, deceit, power, greed, and ultimately revenge. Montreal Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto is a criminal anomaly. Determined to bring peace to the disparate wings of the Montreal crime world of the day, Rizzuto successfully unifies them, serving as a de facto CEO while ensuring a lucrative payday for all. When Rizzuto is suddenly arrested and extradited to Colorado's Supermax Prison for the 1981 murders of three Bonanno crime family members, the powerful empire he built begins to crumble. Rizzuto watches helplessly until his release from prison in October 2012, when a Shakespearean tale of revenge begins to unfold.
The writing is pretty poor but the acting (for more than a few) is just pathetic. It is chock full of cliche that you can see coming a mile away. They mixed so many things from the "great" mob shows/movies and threw them into three episodes.
The Son ruins the show. Come on folks write something original and can the idiot son and maybe the show can succeed.
