Trivia

In an interview with Scott Foundas that appeared in the November/December 2010 issue of Film Comment, Paul Haggis said about this show, "I wanted to do a television show that said, I'm going to show you the good guy, I'm going to show you the bad guy, and I'm going to make you hate the bad guy and love the good guy. Now watch this: you're about to love the bad guy and hate the good guy. Now you know what's what. Oh yeah? Watch this: you're about to love the good guy again and hate the bad guy again. And to just keep doing that over and over again, so we see how complex human beings truly are." See more »

Quotes

Murtha: I, I put six bullets in him. You're telling me I didn't kill him?
Mickey: It wasn't meant as a criticism.

Coulda been...
23 April 1999 | by bruno-51See all my reviews

CBS was the death of this show. Paul Haggis demonstrated true genius in writing and directing this intense, thoughtful drama that came off like a motion picture in every episode. Whatever folks loved about "Wiseguy," Haggis took and raised to the next level, and always presented a thought-provoking portrait of crime, family, broken homes, betrayal, passion, despair, and hope. We were all blessed with the episodes that were made, but gypped forever by the bottom-line networks.
