Only made it 17 minutes in before I had to turn it off. It was so dry, slow moving and boring.

How can a show about hookers and gambling with such good acting be so dull?

I admit not giving it enough time. But thought I would love to watch a series from that time, especially with the actor line ups. But my suspicion was correct. It is all about gangsters and bribes and...
Sadly, I got bored watching the first episode and did not finish it. Good luck to the show and its fans. But it is not my cup of tea.

Public Morals a great new 1960 show, the first episode begins with the 60s vibe the cars the people the mobsters, the music all are there. its a promising start for this new show. now lets see how the story unravels in the next episodes, if it has an interesting and good story its going to be a very good series. and if you love the 1960s is going to be even better!

I decided to give Public Morals a shot and I was not disappointed. This show is great! It feels authentic to the times, everything from the accents to the set. Not too overdone either, it doesn't look costume-y nor doesn't it feel like they are trying to hard.

Basically the show is about cops in the 60's and how they deal with crime. Actually, most importantly, it's about how they are a part of crime. They play the line between cops and criminals. Just in the first episode we see them taking bribes, lying, playing illegal games, etc. Yet (so far) they seem like good cops when it matters.

I see it as a show about how people dealt with crime in a time when the law was too restrictive to be enforced. Even gay bars were illegal! These cops are trying to keep the city in order, knowing the law as it is can not be properly enforced. Of course there are some points that cross the line and have us wondering on which side they actually stand.

With plenty of good characters, Public Morals explores not only the crime scene in 1960's New York, but also the family life, values, and the sense of morality of the times.

The show has a very interesting premise, and I for one am excited to see where it goes.

This hasn't had great reviews so far... I didn't find it all that horrible so I'm gonna keep watching for a while and see how it fits. ok now by the sixth episode I'm bored... it's going in my lost intrest list.

Initially when I first started watching, it was a little slow, but after watching 3 episodes in a row, I am hooked, It may be the music, it may be the slower pace, but it takes me back to watcching telly (in the 70s), on a rented black and white thing and being enthralled. Once you get into it, the mood is relaxed (action heros switch off), but its so REAL, its like watching it out of your curtains on the sly. I see a lot of bad reviews, but please sit down and watch it, and appreciate the ambience. I am singing along to the odd refrain with my headphones on..............and I DONT DO THAT. Loving it, was definitely a slow burn and am glad I binge watched it, or I might of binned it. Sxx

Not sure about this one yet so I'll watch for a couple of episodes before I decide if it's worth watching
