Fantastic episode for a fantastic series
2 March 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

That probably will the only episode that I will comment on this TV show, because it has been commented yet. This episode is really terrific, especially the Al Capone's character performance. I now the actor, a British one, whose character reminds us Joe Pesci's ones in the Marty Scorcese's features such as GOOD FELLAS and CASINO. A rough, brutal, most violent guy who is so sensitive, so touching with his fragile son and also friend, badly beaten by the Irish gangster in the bar. Watch put this scene when Capone destroys the Irish Hood, look out for this outstanding sequence, where Capone uses this brutal behaviour to get revenge over his son himself beaten by his school comrades... But besides this, I guess that in this kind of TV show, you watch thousand of things that you would never see in movies. The way, for instance, the characters have to come and die so rapidly. You find this only in series. And I love that.
