Brotherhood was a television series that ran on Showtime for three seasons from 2006 through 2008. In my view, no other film or show captures the flavor and personality of the southern New England states. The two leads in the show, Jason Isaacs and Jason Clarke, are simply brilliant. Behind Breaking Bad, Deadwood, Justified and The Sopranos, I have Brotherhood in my top five shows on television over the past decade. (The Wire failed on several levels in its final season, falling lower on my list).

Brotherhood set in an Irish neighbourhood in Providence, the series reflects around two brothers on opposite sides of the law: one a gangster and the other a politician. The blue-collar neighbourhood has roots in old-world ways of street justice and shady dealings. Tommy Caffee is a family man and local politician who is out to protect the community and its best interests. His world is turned around when his gangster brother Mike returns to “The Hill” to regain control of the seedy underworld.

    I always wanted to watch this show but never subscribed to Showtime. Been in my NFLX queue forever. I better move it up!
