Unlike Tony Soprano, Miguel's (American) wife Marlene (Sheryl Lee, still best known as Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks) supports her husband's position with Machiavellian schemes of her own, though both parents strive to shelter their 8-year-old son from involvement in the messier side of the family business. After a bloody coup in the pilot episode, Miguel and his ruthless brother Chato (Bobby Cannavale) cement their hold over the business, while struggling with the twin threats of family infighting and law enforcement pressure. As in Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, here the DEA agents--principally go-getting Delia Flores (Angela Alvarado Rosa)--are significant characters in their own right. Also north of the border is cowardly plastic surgeon Dr. Heywood Klein (Brian Benben), whose often unwilling involvement with small-time crooks (especially his self-appointed bodyguard Junie, played with deadpan wit by Shay Roundtree) provides much-needed comic relief amid the scenes of casual slaughter. With its vivid depiction of a sleazy, utterly amoral world, Kingpin makes for compelling viewing, even if it never quite attains the effortlessly sublime levels of its northern predecessor. --Mark Walker

But I am SO thrilled it was released on DVD through NBC Studios and Spelling Television. I hope you all tell as many people as you can about it.Read more ›
2. It is by far the BEST network mini series I have EVER seen. (note....this does not include any CABLE mini series)
3. It was first aired by NBC and a few months later, cable network Bravo aired the series uncut. I personally watched both airings before purchasing the DVD. Excellent!
4. There are three stories which are intertwined in one way or another (american doctor dealing with a hitman who works for a drug dealer who is being investigated by a couple of DEA agents of which one agent previously investigated the kingpin before her partner was killed) More than three stories? In theory, yes, but they all tie in to......the Kingpin.
5. If you have not watched all episodes, please attempt to do so BEFORE posting a review. An informed reviewer is the best reviewer.
Till next time....
Every single scene was incredibly well written and acted - nothing stereotypical about it. Always excruciating surprises. You are praying that the madness will end but it doesn't.
