Gomorrah (TV series)

Recommended Posts

This is back on the 29th, on overseas Sky Atlantic at least. Pretty sure there's nothing else going on that day. (Actually, I guess there's a reasonable chance that Gomorrah might actually cheer me up for once, rather than the opposite...)

 

No news that I can find on a UK broadcast so far, but I imagine it won't be long behind on UK Sky / Now TV.

 

Here's the trailer:

Starts again this Wednesday with a double bill on Sky (and maybe the full season on NowTv?)

 

It's quite possibly the very best thing I've seen on Nowtv. Very much looking forward to its return.

 

Spoiler

I'm gonna miss Ciro though

Hmm, I just finished and overall I found this series pretty underwhelming to be honest. It was always going to be a struggle to fill the Ciro sized hole, but I did have some hopes that Patrizia's character would offer something great in a different way. In reality she spent most of the season looking uncomfortably into the distance and failing to show any chemistry with her utterly unconvincing husband. I also thought his family were completely unbelievable and uninteresting throughout. 

 

I don't mean to stink up the thread, but it feels like so many shows outstay their welcome these days. This could have signed off satisfactorily at the end of season 3.

I was getting into this in a major way until episode 11. Is there much point in watching further?

 

Spoiler

Lady Imma carried the show for me. I don't understand what the series gains from her departure. A matriarch stepping up in a brutal world of men was the most interesting theme in the whole thing, I thought. That, and a son who didn't seem cut out to take over. With both of those ideas already cast aside, I'm not sure what's left. Should I stick with it?

Italy is fucking years behind the rest of Europe in its treatment of women, Don't expect any better treatment in season 2. Gianerro will surprise you though.

Yes, it's consistently brilliant. Don't worry - Lady I's not the last strong female character you'll encounter.

 

It's not going to get any cheerier though...

There was a film released 'L'immortale' recently in Italy that precedes the next season ( think it takes place during the current season ) Looking forward to seeing it, and next season will be a banger!

Really wasn’t expecting that. Can’t wait.
