Editorial Reviews

Mayor Tom Kane's (Kelsey Grammer) grip on Chicago is as powerful as ever. With high doses of medication, he's able to beat back the physical symptoms of his debilitating brain disease, but it comes at a cost. Committed to his unorthodox agenda, Kane cuts out the cancers within the political machine he helped build. As corrupt heads roll and his list of enemies grows, Kane's virtuous actions begin to erode the very foundation of power he's worked a lifetime to build. In order to maintain it, Kane must govern as he always has - ruthlessly.

Of all the shows from 2012, the second season of Starz's "Boss" was my choice for the most improved. Don't get me wrong, I loved Season One of this dark and twisted political soap opera! When I reviewed it, I gave it my highest recommendation. But the show probably connected slightly more with my brain than with my heart. In the ten episodes that comprise this set, the writers managed to streamline the most successful elements of the first year and also give some of the underutilized peripheral characters a greater chance to shine. In truth, this may well be one of my absolute favorites from the 2012 line-up.

The show is filled with Machiavellian maneuvering, duplicitous double dealing, and insane political posturing. Chicago city government (as well as a state election) is the arena for the never ending game and all the players are jostling for the best position and the preservation of their own self interest. The heightened drama unfolds with an operatic grandeur with the unscrupulous Tom Kane (Kelsey Grammar) unwilling to relinquish his mayoral seat under any circumstance. Although intensely dramatic, I found myself frequently laughing out loud at the show's ruthlessness! But just as the show is hitting its stride, Starz has decided not to move forward with Season Three. So it's somewhat bittersweet to say goodbye to this gleefully unpleasant adult entertainment.

Grammar is terrific in the role that won him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. His Kane is still struggling to hang on to his devastating health secret and remain in power. As the season starts, he sits squarely on the throne. But his reign starts to be compromised by rivals, foes, personal demons and the truth itself. But never count Kane out, even when all looks lost.

The two seasons of Boss were so close to political truth they were scary. It would not shock me to find out that Starz was asked not to continue the series by those who have influence over the industry for their own political reasons. I also believe that it may have been too "intellectually" challenging for the viewers of the usual action violence as opposed to the undercover targeted violence of political intrigue and scandal. I will miss this series and have recommended it to many who NEVER saw Boss while it was on the air. Too bad, Kelsey Grammar and cast will be sorely missed. I am glad to own season 1 and now to order season 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uneven Second Season Still Worth This BOSS's Time April 22, 2013
Format:DVD
If you know anything about the politics of the great `Windy City' of Chicago, then you know at the very least how corrupt a local administration can be. Now, don't blame the current politicians necessarily: any review of history would show you that they're just as much pawns to the system created years before, though none are quick to institute anything resembling lasting reform. Take Mayor Tom Kane (played with terrific conviction by Kelsey Grammer) as an example: he's as effective as he is ruthless. In fact, if he didn't have so many secrets to keep him busy, one wonders whether he'd be half as productive in the job as he is!

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

At the end of Season 1, Kane was forced to make a few fateful decisions - one involving the life and liberty of his closest confidante - and, as Season 2 opens, we see that he's still struggling to maintain a semblance of control over his office as well as his own sanity. The sanity bit is largely driven by the fact that he's suffering from a rare brain disease that's slowly robbing him of all his faculties (as well as his allies). However, Kane employs the same ruthlessness that's made him a winner in Chicago's back alleys in order to bring his condition under control (is a cure truly possible?), only to risk losing it all when he's force to bow to adversaries who attack when he's weakest.

"Boss" is loosely based on the great 20th century mayors of Chicago who ran the Windy City with a mixture of power, political acumen, and (dare we say it) an honest wish for the success of the city (that is, as long as all three could be simultaneously achieved). As we watch the story of "Boss" unfold over two seasons, we see a powerful Chicago mayor (Mayor Kane) as he keeps an iron fist over what he has achieved over the years in coming up the ranks of the Chicago system, and doing so while he wrestles with a serious physical illness. Although endowing the character with this illness is the twist in the story that makes it different from the city's actual mayoral history, anyone who grew up in Chicago instantly recognizes the reference (as does any reader of Mike Royko's columns in the Chicago Tribune published over those years), a steely parallel between the role and the reality: it's like dirty street fighting waged in men's dress suits. Anyone raised in the Chicago area, too, recognizes all the details: the types of clothing, the names of towns throughout the state, the hairstyles, even the styles of glasses. Of course, there were no smart phones in those years, but this is a modern telling of a slightly older story. Somebody really got this right in both execution AND detail.

Fans of Boss were greatly excited to see the second season of this critically acclaimed show (Grammer won a Golden Globe for best dramatic performance in Season One), and, for the most part, Season Two does not disappoint. We can easily say again what we said after watching Season One of Boss: this is Grammer's greatest role to date, and demonstrates that his acting skills cover drama, not only comedy (as we saw in 11 years of Frasier).
