Now ended after three relatively successful seasons in the US (airing alongside Dexter on Showtime) Brotherhood provides a drama as intriguing and as violent as the Sopranos. Setting it's narrative between the corrupt lives of two brothers it shows how at City Hall there are as many crooks as on skid row. Season one works well at establishing the lead characters and builds towards a startling series of revelations that run from the end of season 1 into season 2 and culminating in a satisfying fashion ins season 3. Totaling 29 episodes in all Brotherhood is small and impressively formed and well worth a punt.

I really like this series - Jason Isaacs (who is from my home town of Liverpool, UK) is a brilliant actor, and I feel it sad that the series ended after just 3 series.
I did enjoy it however, and am now considering the \wire as my next purchase.

An aspiring Irish-American state representative,Tommy Caffee finds his plans going awry when his violent mob connected brother turns up out of the blue. Tommy's life is further complicated by his wayward & bored wife & daughter, mob boss Freddie becomes a nuisance & he starts to have to schmooz with the big boys in order to advance his career.
As the series unfolds all sorts of dark secrets come tumbling out of the Caffee family closet, Michael becomes increasingly violent & the family turns on itself.
There is much to recommend 'Brothers' & the only reason it's got 4 stars is that on occasion it repeats itself & drags a little. That said most of the time it keeps up the pace & you never know just what mess is waiting next for the Caffee family.
The real selling point for the series though is the high class of acting by all involved. As Tommy Jason Clark does a great job of balancing charm & oily deceit, Fionnula Flanagan is exceptional as the worried, bullying & smothering matriarch while above all Jason Isaacs is superb as the totally unpredictable & fearsome Michael.
Around these three the support actors all contribute a great deal.
The picture is fine as is the sound. The extra's are tat.
If The Shield & The Wire are on your favourites list then this is going to appeal. There is a deep & fascinating storyline & character arc being developed here & it's well worth following.
