Storyline

In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm - and then it all changed in what was called the "Boston Miracle." In this fictional account, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr. Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston. Written by SHOWTIME

Off to a good start

First episodes do tend to try to much to establish characters - this one did to a certain extent but the show has not overly done this. Kevin Bacon is his usual excellent self. Looking forward to a long life for this one.
