Storyline

Every villain has a noble cause, and every hero has a dark side. In the gritty new action-drama GANG RELATED, Detective RYAN LOPEZ is a rising star in Los Angeles' elite Gang Task Force. What the world doesn't know is that long before Ryan became a cop, he pledged allegiance to a different band of brothers - a powerful Latino gang called Los Angelicos. When Ryan's best friend and police partner is senselessly killed by a notorious gang member, Ryan teams up with longtime Task Force member CASSIUS GREEN, who has been at the forefront of the city's war on organized crime. In this war between law enforcement and gangs, the series explores how only people who really know the streets can win the battle on the streets. Despite his profession, Ryan is still beholden to the gang's leader, JAVIER ACOSTA, the father figure Ryan has tried to make proud his entire life and the man who masterminded his entry into the police force. It's a secret that has been held for a decade by Ryan, Javier and ... Written by FOX

I am trying very hard to like this
16 May 2014 | by markchonSee all my reviews

I understand this is a pilot. So I am still going to give it a chance. I am 20 minutes into it right now and I want to turn it off. All that network money and you can't get RZA to lose his Shaolin accent? Nortenos in LA? Give me a break. This show has so much potential but the casting and plot is beyond stupid. At least Kurt Sutter attempts to be some what accurate in California Gang politics. The creator of this show must be a real douche bag in real life. This is the first time I have ever sensed it from watching a show. All you are doing is glamorizing criminal behavior in a bullshit fantasy way.

I wonder if Cliff Curtis longs for the day he can play a Polynesian shot caller, instead of always being casted as a Cartel or Mexican Gang leader. Regardless, the show has potential. FOX needs to step it up and gut the writers and maybe the creator of the show. Put somebody who knows what he is doing in charge.

5/30 Update: I guess I spoke too soon. That last episode was entertaining. I guess I wasn't stoned enough when I watched the pilot. I think this show will evolve into something good. Hopefully "Shield" level. Cliff Curtis is a very convincing shot caller. Upgraded from 3 to 6 stars.

6/6 Last update: When I am wrong, I am wrong. Show is getting better with each episode. Cliff Curtis is a bad mofo. Upgrading this to 8.
