Organized Crime Bureau (OCB) undercover operative, Vincent Terranova returns to his mafia roots by exploiting his reputation as Sonny Steelgraves right-hand man to finish the job he began: bringing down la familia. But it isnt long before he is inadvertently drawn into a war between his stepfather, Don Aiuppo and heir apparent, Albert Cerrico. Terranovas problems go from bad to worse when after upon learning that he is the target of retribution by factions within the U.S. government who are seeking revenge for his involvement in exposing an illegal operation. A conspiracy involving counterfeit Yen and the attempt to cause severe distribution in the Japanese economy is attributed to him. He suddenly finds himself battling power brokers who make people like Steelgrave and Mel Profitt seem insignificant by comparison. Vinnies principles are shattered as he is becomes embroiled in the struggle for his very life and career. His world is on the verge of collapse and the only person he can turn to is his OCB field director, Frank McPike, who will go to hell and back to help an innocent man.

Anyway, I loved the show then and loved it as much watching it about 20 years later. I am now married with 2 children and watching the series evokes all of the same old emotions. I love the complex and emotional relationship that develops between Vinnie and Sonny. I also love Frank and his "quirky" personality. The writing and acting are superb and I would give the set more than five stars if I could. I also enjoyed the interviews with Stephen J. Cannell and Jonathan Banks. It is so fun to hear in their own words how they felt about the show.
I also purchased the Mel Profitt arc and enjoyed it. I especially appreciated the bonus interviews with Kevin Spacey and William Russ (among others). I remember being so intrigued with Wiseguy when I was younger and that same intrigue holds true today. It amazes me all of the talented guest stars they had that went on to do so well. It is definitely worth every penny and I would recommend both arcs to anyone. I am looking at getting the next set and will hopefully be as pleased with those. Thanks Stephen J. Cannell Productions for these awesome DVD's!
