    Hard as it may be to imagine, there is still drama in the subject of crime families. And National Geographic Channel's contribution, the six-part Inside the American Mob, is impressive on that score. Most of its persuasiveness derives from first-person reflections both by federal officials and by Mafios.

    If you are a serious-minded man (or woman) who loves mob lore, you’ll be all over this like a really bad smell.

    This is a solid addition to a saga we find endlessly fascinating.

    We’ve seen so many mob documentaries and dramas that the whole subject sometimes seems cartoonish. Inside the American Mob does not.

    So far this is a great mini series. What you come to expect of National Geographic. This mob show shows how the mob in america came to its demise. Once the FBI got inside it was the end of a long era. Expand

    Comprehensive and objective. The series tells you both sides of the story straight from the people that were involved. It's a good watch even if you aren't very interested in the subject. Collapse
