Accuracy
17 July 2016 | by electraguard2See all my reviews

I don't know about the accuracy of the story line but I do know that the 1959 Edsel cop car showing up at the 1957 upstate NY meeting is not accurate. There may be other inaccuracy in the show but I found it entertaining. I thought the casting was good but got tired of all the non-essential shots of gangsters standing or sitting around smoking. I also noted that one of the scenes of Costello being concerned about being hit in the last episode was the same scene from when he was "protecting' the waterfront from saboteurs during WWII. It would have been nice to see what happened to the guys who took over after Luciano but maybe that will be shown in an other series. We are looking forward to the series about Capone.
