Warring gangs, high finance, and political intrigue underpin possibly the most brutal television series I’ve ever seen. It’s well crafted, excelling from the writing on down. Its big draw is bringing cinema style action to the small screen. It has the kind of fight sequences that you don’t see on television, and gun battles Sam Peckinpah would be proud of. I have to admit this took me a while to get through. All in it runs to about nine and a half hours. I probably realised too late that it’s one to take your time with. Bingeing though it will leave you dulled, mute to just how ferocious it is.
