    I ditched cable, but i think this show would do really well as a Netflix show!!!! Bring it back, Netflix!!! I have to say, definitely one of the better shows out there on network tv!
  • Bring Back The Donnelly's !!!!!!!!!

    What Idiot cancelled this show? Who the hell failed to market it? This show could have very easily had a 7-10 seasons or more. Guess the only good thing about this show was the acting, camera work, writing, directing, film crew etc etc etc.



    Yup it needed to be cancelled
  • I LOVE THE BLACK DONNELLY'S!

    This was an excellent TV Show, that I highly recommend. It had great actors and an awesome story line that never lost your attention. I truley wish NBC would bring this series back, they didn't receive great ratings because at the time of air The Saprano's was in it's sixth season. If they brought it back now, I believe they would get an outstaning amount of views. Most tv shows these days are lame and have no competition against The Black Donnellys! PLEASE bring it BACK so the FANS can see what happens next!!!! Instead of just leaving us all in Suspense.....moreless
  • In truth a very poor show wrapped up like a great one, poor casting I don't believe them.

    I downloaded the whole series, I was so excited about this a great writer and director taking on a gritty story.



    I am afraid to say I am disappointed and think this show after seeing 6 episodes, is devastatingly poor but is a real shame as it should be great.



    OK first and importantly the casting is awful apart from the girl and the cop, the brothers excluding the youngest are not believable and also they are to young.



    The guy that plays the lead brother is doing his best Sean Penn angry, mumbling and grumbling act and to be honest I wouldn't follow this guy he doesn't inspire he has no weight.



    The writing leans very heavy on background music to lay the scene rather than letting the actors and the writing do it which says a lot.



    The mention of the Italians and the Irish, the Irish, the Irish, hell your Americans get over it divided you stand divided you fall. These guys couldn't point to Ireland on a map let alone come from the place.



    Overall this to me feels like the first 20 minutes of the film Sleepers, stretched out to a 12 episode series.



    A poor show wrapped up like a great one, I wish my generation would do better.moreless
