    It's grittily atmospheric, sharply scripted and acted with a depth that becomes more apparent as the series goes on. It will leave you on the edge of your seat. [4 Apr 2000]

    Worth watching. ... The domestic drama isn't quite so compelling as the cops-and-robbers stuff but takes some of the edge off of its intensity. [4 Apr 2000]

    On its own, this series ... might not have seemed so bad. But it can't hold a note compared with "The Sopranos." [4 Apr 2000]

    If you've never seen "The Sopranos" -- and haven't seen "Goodfellas," "Donnie Brasco" or some of the other morally ambiguous mob tales -- you may well consider it exciting television. Well acted and occasionally trusting the audience not to need everything spelled out for it, it could fairly be called a pretty good watch. [3 Apr 2000]

    The series rarely soars beyond the predictable. [4 Apr 2000]

    The show is so far removed from the standard set by "The Sopranos." It just doesn't get off the ground. [4 Apr 2000]

    Characters are indistinguishable from each other and forced to either mutter or shout cliched New Yawk dialogue. And the editing moves the action from one scenario to another at such an exaggerated pace that nothing gets a chance to truly resonate.
