Quite simple so I even I can understand how this goes... Laughing
So what tv shows depicting organized crime of all types be it
Cosa Nostra, Yakuza, Irish Mob, Triads etc do you or have watched?

Do you have a favourite or favourites?
Do you have any opinions on the programs themselves?

I will start:

Although not currently watching any of these types of dramas
now, I had and am interested in the HBO series "Boardwalk Empire".
Now currently as of the end of last year in it's 3rd season.

Although heavily dramatized (well of course it is) it has good sets
the acting is good and is actually quite entertaining.

Other series I have watched are of course "The Sopranos"
which I only got up to I think season 5 when VM (Virgin Media)
lost HBO when Sky brought the rights to show HBO programs
(mind you there are streaming sites I can watch programs on) Guilty

If you know of any other shows related to organized crime then
please let us know.

*I have added a poll on what is your favourite series including some
that I have not watched but may be you have and if you are old enough
some older series from BITD (Back In The Day)*

I watched the first two episodes of 'Vegas' on Sky Atlantic. Didn't think a whole lot of it really. It was ok, but not something that would keep my interest.

Boardwalk Empire I have recently got back into after I stopped watching it mid-way through series 3 (couldn't be doing with all of Margerate Schroder's moral dilema bulls**t) and am enjoying it again Smile I am definatly going to give series 3 another try when it comes out on DVD.

The best one of course though, would have to be The Sopranos. In my opinion, one of the best shows America has ever produced. While not every episode is great, it is certainly a good portrayal of how difficult it can be for a gangster to make his way in the modern world.

And that, ladies and gentlemen. Is my two cents worth Smile

I have started watching "The Sopranos" some time ago. This is a very enjoyable show. I like to watch it not only because it's about mafia organization but because the characters of the show are in fact normal, regular people. They have their own problems and they must to deal with them, no matter how or what they will do.

I was also going to watch "Boardwalk Empire" a few months ago, but to this day I don't have time to start watching it Smile

It took a few episodes for the mob angle in Vegas to develop but they really had it going towards the end.


1950's vegas, old school vegas, the Mob controls and are fighting for control of the casinos, and a different family is running the sheriff's office

The first season of “Boardwalk Empire” was a masterpiece whilst season two slumped to a 7 and season three was a mediocre 5. Nevertheless, the main, inherent fault of TV shows is that they aren’t thought-out from beginning to end, they’re made up as they go along so a decline in inevitable.
The first season is basically an extended 12h movie “Once upon a time in Atlantic City” Smile
Once, I rewatched the whole first season in one sitting and it was one helluva ride.
Hope things get better in season 4.

I agree, Boardwalk Empire has dropped in quality and has been more soap-ish this past season, but i really do believe it is the best period series ever created, in regards to crime, and it still is decent television.

One thing nobody watches is the "black mafia", and i heartfully recommend The Wire, the best tv show in history. Just ask Dan and Dug.
