    here is synopsis:


    Set in the Five Points neighborhood of New York City in the 1860s, focusing on a rugged young Irish cop who is forced to navigate his unruly and dangerous immigrant neighborhood while interacting with the uptown Manhattan crowd and the black community.

    I hear it is very bloody, which means I should be watching it, right?

    I couldn't get into it, but the Five Corners stories should be good potential material for dramas.

    I really dig this show.
    Interesting view of the mingling of the classes and lots of meaningful violence, sex and drugs.

    I liked the first season a lot better, hopefully the third season will get back to the dark, gritty subject matter.

    I couldn't get through the pilot. It bored the hell out of me.

    And on a side note: why the fuck is everything worth watching on Sunday night only?
