Animal Kingdom: Complete First Season S1 (DVD)
This bold family crime drama from John Wells Productions centers on 17-year-old "J" Cody, who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of an overdose. Headed by boot-tough matriarch "Smurf" Cody (Ellen Barkin) and her right-hand Baz (Scott Speedman), who runs the business and calls the shots, the clan also consists of Pope (Shawn Hatosy), the oldest and most dangerous of the Cody boys; Craig, the tough and fearless middle son; and Deran, the troubled, suspicious "baby" of the family. It isn't long before J is pulled into the family's life of indulgence and excess, but he soon discovers that it's all being funded by criminal activities. Joining the family comes with more danger and excitement than he might be ready to handle.]]>

The tv spots being run before it aired were just generic and bad I didn't care about this series
But, i DVR the pilot/second episodes regardless
I'm very glad i gave it a chance this is one of those series where the critics are dead on
It's really a must see tv series
This is in many ways a adaption of the original Point Break film
I know it's based on a Australian film adapted to the States But, there's a lot of elements from Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break
It's also shot beautifully
The Director is using some type of Ultra HD Camera
Then you have a perfect cast
Lead by Ellen Barkin
Barkin doing a basic cable series is a massive deal (She is a bit underrated or just forgotten about) Which is a real overall shame!
With this series Barkin pulls no punches this is her doing what so does best acting.....
And i mean acting flawlessly, fearless and a little scary!
Ellen Barkin (Janine 'Smurf' Cody) the mother of four grown-up party animals/bums/surfer/drug addicts/thief's
She takes in her grandson after her only daughter dies of a drug overdose
Finn Cole (Joshua 'J' Cody) the 17 year old that barley knows his relatives that gets swept up in there world of pure insanity
Scott Speedman (Barry 'Baz' Blackwell) The adopted sun than Smurf takes in and raises as her own who seems to be mom favorite son!
Speedman is great in this role it took me almost a hour to realize it was him his hair is grown out a bit longer and brushed back. Stupid me knew his face but, couldn't place him
Shawn Hatosy (Andrew 'Pope' Cody) Andrew who just got out of jail for a previous job returns home and he's not right!
Shawn is awesome some people will no him from Southland being a detective/beat cop in this he's polar opposite his performance at times is down right scary
Ben Robson (Craig Cody) You will not forget how he's introduced it's really wacky! he's the families friendly neighborhood surfer/coke head..... (I've never seen his previous work but, the guy is good at playing a bad guy)
Jake Weary (Deran Cody)
these four play off each other very well you can believe they are related
There is a lot going on with this family
Just go out of your way and check it out. The less you know the better
It's a real unique series with lots of substance and backstory
This is hands down the best summer property on all tv in 2016
Hopefully it's uncut/uncensored during it's TNT's airing some of it's censored
(Just language but, there's plenty of sex and nudity) Go figure
One thing you'll learn from Animal Kingdom coke heads get girls who knew........
Close to perfect freshman Season 10/10
