    its an amazing show! love that it felt like a movie and not a show. can’t wait to see what happens next! superb acting and storyline too! Knew it was going to be a hit as I was watching it, lol. Bravo! HBO has all the greatest shows.

  • yeah

    @shelly:

    I completely agree with you. SB and MP are awesome. At first I didn’t like SB’s character, but there is something about him that I can’t resist. Thank you HBO!

    This show is pure Emmy-bait. I haven’t seen it yet, it probably air soon in the UK on Channel 4 or something. It’s worth seeing for the cast alone, though I am not the biggest fan of Michael Pitt. I love Steve Buscemi, Michael Shannon, Kelly Macdonald and Michael Stuhlberg. Martin Scorsese also directed the pilot.

  • yes

    great show! Steve,Michael and Michael are all great! lol Its nice to see a show that is in another era, never caught Mad Men is it worth the hype? I am always watching HBO shows so this one was a must watch, and I was definitely not let down! Plus I am a sucker for anything mafia related. lol
