Editorial Reviews

Miami Beach, 1959. As Ike Evans rings in the New Year at his luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel, Havana falls to Castro’s rebels. It’s a turbulent time in Miami, but it’s THE place to be. The Kennedys, the mob and the CIA all hold court here. And Ike, he’s the star of his hotel. But everything comes at a price. To finance his dream, he sold his soul to mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond. Ike’s wife Vera, a former showgirl, and his three kids think he’s an honorable man, but he can’t break his pact with the devil. His life is a façade. In fact, nothing at the Miramar Playa is what it seems. By day, it’s diving clowns and cha-cha lessons. By night, escorts have secret liaisons with husbands in the family cabanas, while Miami’s seedier residents and the law drift together to hear legendary singers, musicians and comics. As Ike’s world threatens to implode, he fights for his family, and the Miramar Playa, in Magic City.

On the surface, the Starz original drama "Magic City" would seem to have everything. It's not hard to imagine the pitch when creating this adult oriented mob drama: Let's combine the period detail that works so well in "Mad Men" with the gritty gangster vibe that made "The Sopranos" such a success. I'd like to say that I made up these comparisons, but both were used in the aggressive advertising campaign that Starz used to launch the show (so clearly it's a side-by-side that they are comfortable with). But that's part of the problem. Instead of crafting a unique product to wow the audience, "Magic City" is covering some pretty familiar territory with its central themes. The primary plot points are so similar to dozens of other mob related stories that it's almost impossible not to make comparisons. Don't get me wrong, there are tons of great elements within "Magic City" and I think it has the potential (should it return) to develop into something quite grand. As of Season One, though, it is a show that is still finding its way dramatically.

The story of "Magic City" takes place in Miami Beach circa 1959. Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a visionary hotelier, has just opened the exclusive Miramar Hotel. It's a tumultuous time. Evans is combating an underworld business partner (a great Danny Huston), fending off inquiries from the District Attorney's office, dealing with a crisis in Cuba, opposing unionization, and dealing with a family that all share responsibilities within the resort. It's a great environment for drama. Add that the hotel features talent such as Sinatra (not shown) and hosts gala events for Jackie Kennedy (not shown), and it's an incredible world mixing fact with fiction.

I'm slightly obsessed with this era anyway, so add great storylines and JDM and I'm sold! One of the things I love most is how they've added in historical figures without actually showing them. It gives the show more mystique. If you tried to show them, the Kennedys for instance, it would be very hard to pull off so it speaks to the show's credit that they involve these characters the way they do. An amazing show and my new favorite!

Once more cable TV sets out to make a series that hopes to deliver high class drama with low class subject matter. It's something they've come to do well for the most part but not always as effectively as they'd like. This time around the series revolves around the Miami hotel circuit near the end of the fifties and into the sixties, displaying the desire of Hollywood execs to try and capitalize off the success of other shows once more. Once MAD MEN took off and became a hit, suddenly everyone wanted to revisit the early 60s. The network series about Hugh Hefner and the Playboy Empire floundered shortly after it aired and PAN AM didn't even make it through the first season. So how does MAGIC CITY stand?

The story revolves around Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a man who struggled from the bottom to get to the top. The owner and main driving force behind the Miramar Hotel on the famous beach does whatever he can to make his business succeed. Unfortunately that includes becoming involved with the mob in the form of boss Ben Diamond (Danny Huston).

The time is ripe for mob influence as well with Castro coming into power in Cuba and their hotels/casinos there being lost. They not only want to be involved in the hotels in Miami, they want to take ownership of them from behind the scenes. It's the only way they can with the FBI looking over their shoulder.

Ike sees the potential that the hotels in Miami have. He sees it as more than a simple place to rest yourself on the road to somewhere. This is a resort town in the making with the potential of casinos and high class entertainment much like Vegas which was developing at the same time.

Obviously the S1 is not out but I have seen the first 3 or 4 episodes.

I like the series VERY much. It's a period piece...late 50's and onward.

The background..clothing...cars...furniture all look fantastic.

All the actors do a great job.

This series has EVERTHING...including Mob characters....and people that swim with the fishies .

Kind of timely considering Man Men is also out there.

My husband and I pulled an all-nighter because we couldn't quit watching. I highly recommend this first season. The second season is suppose to be back on Starzs in January, 2013 and I can't wait. Great cast, very well acted.

Magic City is a stunning example of a high-gloss period drama. Set around Miami Beach and the fictitious Miramar Hotel in 1959, the show depicts the Evans family and the main protagonist, Issac "Ike" Evans, as he navigates family responsibilities, running a major hotel, and fending off the mob. While the story takes a few episodes to develop its main arc, the style is always on overdrive, at times almost too much so. Double waxed Cadillacs with fins, tailored suits, and a wonderfully designed hotel set make the show sparkle out of your TV screen. Olga Kurylenko plays Ike's wife, Vera, with beautiful results. It's almost impossible to take your eyes off her when she's in a scene. The main plots point of season 1 revolve around Ike trying to hide a murder and the Mob's involvement in his business. Ike's two sons create contrast. One is a womanizing bar-tender, the other a more modest law-student. Danny Huston plays the cliche mob villain, Ben Diamond, a little over the top, but definitely provides fear into anyone dealing with him. While there isn't as much depth in story or character development as say, Mad Men, there is plenty of likability in the characters and as the season runs on you find yourself rooting more for the Evans family. To give fair warning, the show is much more graphic than its AMC counterpart. Excessive nudity, sex, and violence are peppered throughout each episode, sometimes adding to the emotion of the show and creating shock value, while at other times the nudity is indulgent at best. For period drama lovers, it's a must see! I'd recommend this show to fans of Mad Men, Sopranos, and Boardwalk Empire.
