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

Worth watching for Kevin Bacon and little else
17 August 2019 | by AtariBabySee all my reviews

Watching the first episode, I was thinking the show is a 9. But it hasn't held up well. Bacon and a few of the other actors give great performances, but the show has stretched and padded the story out to forever. And at times I can't help but say "no way this would ever happen." And there are uninteresting characters that you just don't need to know about, and there's way too much just talking about stuff. Overall I'm disappointed, but I keep watching mainly just for Kevin Bacon. He's awesome in this.
