Been fukking with this show HEAVY for the past two years..This sh*t is as good as The Wire, except it's much more gritty. I like it more. image

It's an international series, but you can find episodes with English voice-overs. HEAVILY RECOMMENDED!

This sh*t was supposed to come to USA, but Harvey Weinstein got caught up in legal trouble and the studios are f*ghting over the rights to it now to syndicate it in the States. The show is available on Netflix I think and SundanceTV, and while you there also check out "Suburra".

The first episode of the new season, Season 4, came out on March 29.

Saying it's better than The Wire makes me think your trolling or that you work on the show...

Review: The Mafia in ‘Gomorrah,’ Reminiscent of ‘The Wire’ and ‘The Sopranos’


[pic - click to view]



A pair of Mafia lieutenants, filling a jerry can at a Naples gas station, pass the time discussing the foibles of modern youth. “She put a picture of me and her mom on ‘book,’” the older one says. “Facebook,” his younger colleague tells him. “All the kids have it.” Gangsters — they’re just like us!

That’s the opening scene of “Gomorrah,” the highly popular Italian television series that makes its American debut on SundanceTV on Wednesday. Based on a 2007 nonfiction investigative work by Roberto Saviano that has also been adapted into a well-known film, the series arrives with a deserved reputation for unrelenting violence — the gas in that can is quickly put to use in a vivid and unpleasant way.

But brutality isn’t the whole story. “Gomorrah” operates on two planes. It’s a grim, detailed, quotidian drama about the inner workings of organized crime (which has drawn comparisons to “The Wire”) and at the same time it’s a traditional Mafia saga, a clan melodrama centering on succession and the ups and downs of the family business (which has drawn comparisons to “The Sopranos” and “The Godfather”). Either of these by itself might not be very interesting, but the combination is handled so adroitly that the show sucks you in. It doesn’t have the emotional or stylistic highs of those predecessors, but it carries you along like one of the sleek Italian motorcycles preferred by its wealthier characters.

The 12-episode first season (a second has already been shown in Europe) centers on two members of a drug gang in the Naples suburbs who are like a foster-family version of Sonny and Michael Corleone. Gennaro (Salvatore Esposito) is a Sonny-like hothead, unfit to be in charge but eventually thrust into the role because he’s the only son of the boss. Ciro (Marco D’Amore, whose quiet charisma holds your attention) is a coldly efficient k*ller and canny strategist — he’s the Michael, but because he’s not in the family, he has to work with Gennaro, or appear to.

The relationship of these two up-and-comers, playing out amid a large cast of other familiar Mafia-drama types (the ruthless but declining boss, the calculating mother, the good soldier, the aggrieved wife), proceeds through an arc of increasingly operatic violence, as rival clans f*ght for turf and one massacre begets another. The story line is dark, and so is the screen. Under the guidance of the showrunner, Stefano Sollima, the show makes a fetish of low light and shadow. Its most characteristic scenes are not chases and shootouts but small groups of nervous or celebratory men meeting in the dark. They gather on street corners, in crowded discos and in abandoned buildings that serve as drug markets, their faces obscured or invisible. Even during the day, they’re in curtained rooms or prison cells.

The cinematography and lighting fit with the show’s overall sense of desolation, a depiction of the Neapolitan environment as rubble-filled, overgrown and derelict. (Scenes set in Milan offer a pointed comparison to the less prosperous south.) Much of the action is set in faceless, towering apartment blocks that recall the settings of Italian neorealist films, though touches of lyricism creep in, like a beach scene in which a pair of horse carts passing in the background feel like early Fellini.

Mr. Sollima and his colleagues are certainly aware of the many influences to be sorted through in making a modern gangster tale. At one point a young hood, describing the botched job that got him imprisoned, says that cops and helicopters arrived “just like an American movie.” In “Gomorrah,” they’ve achieved a satisfying international blend.

Season 1 was great cinema then went a little downhill for season 2 to become a gore fest for season 3, stakes being high, the body count even higher.

I've been to Napoli a couple of times and while I obviously wasn't even remotely close to that kind of action, the series turned it into fu*king Juarez. Bodies drop for sure, in the small suburbs surrounding it, and if Camorra exists, it's not the fu*king FARCS either.

i caught the first two seasons when it first aired. Haven’t seen beyond 2 tho. Got tired of waiting every week for it cause it would air on some italian network and then you’d have to wait for the ENG subtitles rip

Ive had Gomorrah ready to go on my personal Plex, just havent watched it yet. Might start that next though...this threat got me feeling like I need to start now lol.

I Also got 'Suburra' on deck too. sh*t is hard from all accounts, although not quite as good as Gomorrah from what read. It also has a movie which is a prequel that came out before the TV show. It has some of the same actors. I"ll be waiting until the show is over to watch that. Rather not know whats to come while Im watching the show.
