That was an excellent one.
good back-story, and good acting
As Good As It Gets
It's funny, it's tense, it features two great performances from two actors and the director expertly creates a web of odd tension where you actually don't know what is happening for the majority of the run time.
I'm a huge fan of this series. They keep you in your seat. Full of action and drama. I have always been interested in the history of Cartels, Drugs, and how they change and destroy regular peoples lives. Amazes me how much someone is willing to pay so a short high. It's extremely sad at how people destroy their loved ones by their addiction and greed.
This show is great. I love history pieces and this is exactly what this is. It covers the Reagan era drug war from a view we have not seen.
I LOVE this series. At first, I was disinterested in watching until I overheard a radio personality say it was a must- watch. After watching, I totally agree. This series is one of the best out now. It's one of those that keep you excited to see the next episode. Let's hope the nay-sayers don't discourage the series from reairing for other seasons. I love it and encouraged others to watch. Keep up writers, directors, whomever thought to put the info out. Its the truth!!!
This show is a decent street drama depicting the rise of crack cocaine and the lives of those entangled in the web of greed and destruction that led to this tragic epidemic. I was enjoying this show until the third episode, spoiler here, that horrifically showed the brutal sexual assault of a male street criminal. In an effort to push the envelope for shock value or to show just how vicious the street game can be the show chose to use a male rape which in my opinion took it over a ledge. This may have worked in a prison based show but I didn't get shock factor, I got repulsion, a lack of realism on street cred and flat out trying to hard to be gritty. This could have been done in so many ways to bring out the brutality of the street and yet, this show chose not only to introduce homosexuality but a vicious sexual assault and casually move on to other mundane scenes it frankly left something to be desired. In this day and age where the more outrageous the better in all things from nudity, profanity, etc. I am sure some will feel this demonstrates just how far this show is willing to go. However, for those seeking a quality experience it took the show a step in the wrong direction and was simply overkill.****Update, I was pretty turned off with the rape scene on the show but soldiered on and just finished the season finale. It's actually a good show and the season finale brought it full circle with much to look forward to next season.
