What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I really like Ed Burns and he has been around awhile but looks the same and also creator of the show about NYC Vice cops in the 1960s era !
The whole cast includes many well known faces , if not names . So Far , So Good ! Another reason I like it is , I grew up on the Streets of NY Born in '47 the 60s were my High School , College & Military Service and the Best job I ever had and went to work in NOLA at the same Club called Your Father's Mustache ! I mention this , only because one night in '67 or '68 , all of the staff working that night had a showdown with some customers who were acting rude and it was a Bachelor Party. Turned out they were all NYC Vice cops , but before they told us as we stood on one side of the Club and they the other , they pulled back their jackets and all had shoulder holsters on. They apologized , went and tipped really well , to their waiters and bartenders , we opened the Beer taps and drank til 7 AM as they told us stories about NYC Hookers and gambling dens. So far this show is pretty spot on , but it reminds me of the Godfather , only in the sense the way its filmed , which still ain't to shabby a comparison to be made with !
