Thumbs up Gomorrah (Netflix)

The show is based on Roberto Saviano's book, which was an excellent insight into the Camorra Clans of northern Italy, who have for all intents and purposes completely displaced the Sicilian Mafia.

One of the things that I love, having grown up in the town with the most pizzerias in the world, aka a money-laundering trade zone for the Mafia, is that they're not glamorized as they are in America.

Mafiosi are complete pieces of shit who prey on the weak and constantly wipe each other out for power. The show does an excellent job or showing the true grittiness of life there, focusing on the area around Naples where they've originated, and starts diving into the transnational criminal organization aspect at the end of the first season.

Highly recommend if you're someone who can do subtitles.

So far I'd give the show a 9/10 and I'm about halfway into season 2.

For a half second when I read the thread title, I thought this was about a giant flying turtle that could breathe fire...

But this looks good, too.

I think I've seen three seasons of it. it is gritty.
Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical and radical minority, rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
