Gomorrah (TV series)

Recommended Posts

This is four episodes in on Sky Atlantic yet no one seems to be talking about it, and I can't understand why because it's utterly fantastic. I started watching it with pretty low expectations as I wasn't a big fan of the film but it's fast becoming my favourite show on the telly at the moment.

Anyone else watching it?

Do, you won't regret it. The film did nothing for me. The series though moves at a cracking pace. The first episode is a great introduction to the world, and it just gets better and better. Keep waiting for the quality to drop but it just dosn't.

I thought the film was excellent (I will never forget the ending). I hope the series takes the same honest, realistic approach as the film then this certainly will be a must-see.

What's it about?

It's an Italian mafia drama. Has quite a Sopranos vibe, though more action packed (so far).

Need to give it a second viewing. Can't remember too much about it.

Well that was as good a TV series as I've seen in many a year, fantastic show. Up until the last scene I genuinely had no idea who was going to come out on top. Going to be a long wait for season two.

I agree, its the best I have seen since Breaking Bad, and am surprised this hasn't had a bigger following (maybe it will be a sleeper hit).

For me, one of its biggest strengths is the casting, I cannot think of a single weak actor amongst them. The guy playing Genny was a standout.

Cannot wait for series 2.

Yeah, he was great. Totally believed his transformation. The characters were so compelling that despite them all being utter arseholes, you still kind of rooted for them.

There's some word on casting if you Google it, but it all seems to be on Italian sites (e.g. http://it.blastingnews.com/tv-gossip/2014/10/anticipazioni-gomorra-la-serie-news-sulla-seconda-stagione-tra-smentite-e-conferme-00142819.html). I suspect it won't be until late next year at the earliest.

This is what Google Translate has to say...

I concur, I think it's a shame that (largely I think due to the language/subtitles) this hasn't managed to break out beyond a core viewership in the UK as it's such great TV.

This deserves way more love and attention than it's getting. Only two episodes into the second season so far - that's one hell of a father-son relationship - but it remains utterly absorbing, despite being so relentlessly bleak.

 

Anyone else look forward to the end of every single episode, just for that tune to kick in?

Love the way the music kicks in at the end of each episode giving you just quick flashes of what's coming next week. Always find myself singing along with the "uh, uh" bit.

 

Really hope we get a season three.
