First of all, how does Amazon put up season 2 without season 1?? I found season 1 on a pirate streaming website and watched it first -- all the characters are developed there in prep for season 2. If you jump into the middle here without season 1, you will have a lot of questions about how they got to this point. Without a spoiler here, I can say that the character who is the driving force of the entire S1 is gone in S2, and if you don't know that backstory, S2 is missing crucial elements. Beyond Amazon's half-hearted effort, the series itself is far below similar excellent series like Gomorra and Suburra, but slightly better than Mafia Undercover -- all of these being Italian-made. The main cop character is pathetic in his uncontrollable undying love for the prostitute/madam who gravitates toward the crime boss who treats her like crap. The "gang" that supposedly takes control of Rome's drug trade are a bunch of idiots who are in a constant state of life threatening conflict among themselves. You won't like anybody here, you won't empathize with anybody here, and every skull that receives a bullet (and there are many) will have you thinking "Good riddance". Oh, there is a lot of nudity -- beautiful Italian women -- and that's primarily why I tacked on the second star.
