Kevin Bacon is killing it!
Man, Kevin Bacon crushes it in this show! Out of the park. Worth watching on his character alone. I don't care if it's fictional boston or if you're city was misrepresented,get over it. I live in Portland, and they drag it through the mud. Deal with it. A ridiculous complaint I've read in other reviews. It's awesome storytelling with great characters, kicking butt and taking names. If you like true detective or the fargo series, you'll probably love this. A+, thank you for a rarity, in something that's worthwhile with some grit and substance. Boston: get over yourself. We all live in city's we love that no one knows anything about, who doesn't live there. With our own unique history's in equal temperance.

Anybody who likes crime TV shows will like this. Bacon is superb as usual. The rest of the cast performs excellently. I would give it 7 stars if I could. G. Richard Bozarth

This is the real deal.
Being from Cambridgeport, I have never found any of the Boston movies to be authentic. They get worse and worse, with a lot of Long Island accents and Hollywood types. This is the first show that gets it so right, I sat up in my chair and started watching, and laughing. I could smell the old three decker house I grew up in. I hope it continues this way. I can't swear here, but in Boston, we would. Great .... show.

Fantasy / fictional Boston
There is the Boston that actually exists, and then there is this fantasy fictional Boston, populated only by Irish people and a few token others from different races and ethnicities. Ben Affleck has made a career out of exploiting the fictional Boston, and I am sick of watching it.

Accurate, well-cast and overall just really badass.
As a born and raised Bostonian, this is an accurate depiction of Boston in the late 80s-early 90's. Kevin Bacon is perfect for this roll. Accents are on-point and not corny. I feel like I actually know these people. I can't wait for more!
