It should come as zero surprise to anyone that I’m a fan of crime dramas. I would give my left testicle to see Ed Brubaker’s CRIMINAL adapted into a TV series. The Wire is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. This latest offering from HBO looks like The Wire spun through the lens of a darker, scarier backwoods element and with a cast that makes me wonder if there is any end to this consistently amazing golden age of scripted television. I seriously cannot wait for this to debut. I’ll have to soak up Boardwalk Empire in the meantime to soothe my impatience.
