    Good movie, but best of all time? Hardly . . .

    Absolutely the worst movie.

    Living in a somewhat rough urban neighborhood, I found the portrayal of the characters and situations in this show to be extremely authentic. The character development, storylines, dialogue and music selections were all on point. Some situations were maybe a tad on the dramatic side, but this is a scripted TV drama after all. I was pleased that one of the child actors provided some comic relief in later episodes to balance out the darkness and violence in earlier episodes. The finale was perfectly directed, and I cannot wait for a new season! Fans of The Wire, Atlanta and even The Sopranos will probably enjoy this show.

    I'm not sure why so many 9-star reviews and why so few 10-star reviews. Perhaps because there was no snow, sleet, rain or ice? It is Chicago, after all. People should be either freezing their asses or sweating from our hot/humid summers. But this is by far the best I have seen in years, if not ever. I love these people! (And that's coming from a north shore woman.) You all have successfully destroyed my writing career. I can never measure up

    I think the plot was well written. And some of the characters were rather compelling, my personal favorites were Jake, Brandon and Emmett. The only thing I will say, is that if you're looking for a gritty crime story. This isn't it. While it does contain crime and murder, I believe the more slice of life type stuff takes center stage. My main critique is that the crime elements weren't as true to life as i'd like. Coming from the streets, and being locked up... I know that gang politics arent the way they're portrayed in the show. Another critique is that Ronnie's story got stale after a while, his story just dragged on and wasn't interesting after the coogi situation ended with a gunshot. Even though he got locked up in the end and I'm presuming their gonna focus on his prison time next season.

    I really liked this first season! True to life without the Hollywood shenanigans..and it's black actors doing their best at portraying their reality without having to get political in the sense of "them and us" up&coming story..and I appreciate that in this political climate. Amazing performances from most of the cast but the ones that stick out is Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, Jason Mitchell & especially Steven Williams! I wish Steven Williams would have been in the wire, he is that good in this series! All in all; a good series that has potential to be great ( same for snowfall).
