Mob City (Video)

There is a series that is coming to the TNT network that I am actually really looking forward to. It’s a little different than the usual sci-fi and comic book type of shows that we talk about here at Nerdgasm Needs, but I think it will still be just as entertaining. it’s called “Mob City” and is directed by Frank Darabont. Who’s Frank Darabont you ask? Well he is the original director of The Walking Dead on AMC and turned in it’s first and only real compelling season (in my opinion).

Seriously, go back and watch season one and pay attention to the subtle things, like camera angles, sound effects and even dialog. Anyways, he also directed The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. Both amazing films and had a ton of academy award nominations including “Best Picture”; But enough about Frank and his many accomplishments.

Mob City is about the decades-long battle between Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker and mob figure Mickey Cohen. It is based on real-life accounts of the L.A.P.D. and gangsters in the 1940s. I don’t know about you guys but I love gangster movies like Casino, Good Fellas, and The Godfather. the cast looks amazing and has some actors that I’m super excited to see share the screen together. i think I’m most excited to see Jon Bernthal (from The Walking Dead), (from Saving Private Ryan) and (from Heroes). These guys have played some of my favorite characters on both TV and in Movies.

Mob City looks intense and gritty with enough charisma and romance to make this possibly one of the best new shows to hit television. I can’t wait to watch the season premiere tonight. Mob City will air tonight (Wednesday) on the TNT network at 9/8c. Guys, give it a watch and as always let us know your thoughts on it. Does this look like a show you want to watch?
