    While Boss has delusions of Shakespeare, it's not even in the same league as the TNT revival of "Dallas."

    There are fitful moments that work, but the show also manages to shoot itself in the foot regularly.

Yes, Boss is not being watched by millions of people, that is what turns it into a dramatic "treasure". Kane is the major no city would want and that's what makes it irresistable to watch: we love tiranny in some way. Keep it like that, Grammer! Full Review »

    What a cracking season! I don't understand why Boss did not rate through the roof.
    Easily one of the best shows again in 2012. Kelsey Grammer
    What a cracking season! I don't understand why Boss did not rate through the roof.
    Easily one of the best shows again in 2012. Kelsey Grammer is riveting in ever scene supported by excellent performances throughout the whole cast.
    Above all else Boss is entertaining and throughout season 2, continued to be less than predictable at every twist and turn in the plot.
    Considering the rubbish that keeps getting renewed I can't believe it got cancelled.
    Hopefully the movie eventuates. the story deserves an ending.
