Storyline

In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm - and then it all changed in what was called the "Boston Miracle." In this fictional account, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr. Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston. Written by SHOWTIME

I Am Entertained...But
8 July 2019 | by he88See all my reviews

I've looked at the other reviews and it seems that people either love or hate this series. I do like the show, but I'm more in the middle because I feel they've gone off in too many directions attempting to get too many sub stories in. What happens is they distract from the primary stories and it slows everything down too much
