In this sea of so-called reality show drivel, dismal remakes,
and overall waste of money and film, comes this well-written,
well-acted, well-produced show which reigned superior!
It looked as if NBC's brass had grew a pair of dingle-bobbs
overnight was going to lead major network TV back to the light!
Nice dream it was!!--Only a few shows in, even after it showed
that it was building a following, it was suddenly & abruptly
cancelled!! They should have taken it straight to Showtime
or HBO and it would've soared in popularity and won
all kinds of accolades!
Every actor did a great job in this, but Jonathan Tucker
as Tommy Donnelly gave a tour de force performance as
the conflicted, shrewd, good-hearted second oldest son
who keeps it all together.
Not since Al Pacino's performance as Michael Corleone in
THE GODFATHER has a young man thrown into the whirlwind
of duty to family, good v.s. evil, ruthlessness v.s. conscience
been played so believably!!
This is the modern-day Hell's Kitchen Irish
V.S. Italian version though!
This DVD contains all 13 episodes (7 which never aired)
of this great would-be series and I highly
recommend it to anybody who likes good drama!
As for the show - the plot is tightly written, open, explosive, gritty. The acting and directing is just as good. I highly recommend you check this show out, even though you will ultimately be disappointed at the conclusion. It's clearly rushed and never gives you the closure you deserve after feeling for these characters. To be fair, asking them to wrap up the drama in one episode that they've spent so much time cultivating is an impossible task.
I've watched this series through about 3 times and it gets better with each viewing.
