  • Even better than the Wire!

    10

    I never thought I would ever see a show better than The Wire, but "Boss" is even more superbly written and executed. Every character is so adeptly and fundamentally flawed, from the superbly acted steely eyed mercurial and aging mayor (Grammar), who is consumed by evil incarnate like the degenerative neurological disease consuming his body, to the abandoned ingenue drug-addict daughter (Ware) so desperately seeking love and finding intimacy wherever she can; to the obsessively efficient political aid (Robertson) who is confronted with emotional attachment despite following a finely scripted and ruthless political ploy. The replete condemnation of our corrupt political system is consistently and unerringly resolute, and the suffering humanity created never seems stilted or supercilious. Truly a transplendent cinematic masterpiece!
