The Black Donnellys

Victor Von Doom

Fist of teh Internets.
Anybody catch this awesome show by NBC last night?


The premise:
"Meet the Donnelly brothers: Tommy, Jimmy, Kevin and Sean. There is nothing these four Irish brothers wouldn't do to protect each other, and for them that means lying, cheating, stealing and, occasionally, calling the cops. Narrated by wannabe gangster Joey "Ice Cream," this gritty series bears witness to the Donnelly brothers' sudden involvement in organized crime, focusing on how they go from boys to mobsters, and showing how their new life affects their relationships with friends, family and lovers."


It's from the creators/writers of "Crash" and "Million Dollar Baby".


So anyone watch this?

Aside from there being 4 siblings....you can't really compare it to Four Brothers.

It's loosely based on one of the writer's childhood.

and nice to see the Irish get there share of the spot light instead of the Italians.

Definitely a good show. It's really a character drama about four brothers and the strength of their bond. The ending of the first episode really comes out of no where.

Thats what I'm talking about. Yeah.



Anyway, I stuck around on NBC after Heroes and checked this out, after seeing a commercial during the aforementioned Heroes for this show. I decided to give it a shot, and am glad I did. Pretty interesting show so far. Liked the ending to the first episode...I just hope it doesn't become the Lucky Charms version of the Sopranos...

I would only watch this if it were a sitcom about a family from the projects that moves to Ireland after figuring out that their ancestors were Irish.

The Black Donnellys, coming to NBC this Fall!
