    Great atmosphere from the opening credits onward. Season 2 is stronger already than season 1. I especially enjoyed the episode titled, "Sitting on top of the World" from season 2 as it was the most gripping and nerve-racking of them all to date!

    It’s thoroughly transporting.

    No, it's not as unpredictable as "Mad Men," but at least it packs enough of a punch to keep the conspiracy theorists at bay.

    Magic City--on paper, not on screen--remains a compelling idea in search of great execution.
