‘Mob City’ Review: Frank Darabont’s Gangster Noir Burns Slow but Bright

Fans of Frank Darabont’s former show, “The Walking Dead” like to defend its recent dull moments by saying it just has a slow pace. They should check out Darabont’s new limited-run series, “Mob City,” to see how a show can burn slowly and brightly at once.

It may feel like not much happens on “Mob City” – until you realize how much you’ve missed. The blind spot is a classic noir motif, and viewers watching “Mob City” have lots of them. The show’s pace feels like Darabont giving us a sporting chance of spotting clues we’ll probably miss anyway.
