    McMafia on AMC

    I got into McMafia after trying to avoid it, because I thought the name sounded stupid, and I think mafia is for retards. But McMafia is entertaining. It tells the story of a young man who runs a private equity firm in London, whose family was exiled from the Russian mob. He has made his best efforts to build himself without criminal money, but something happens and he gets sucked in. (the old Breaking Bad story)

    The acting in McMafia is on the upper end. There aren't any famous faces that I recognize but some of the Russian actors are known. Comparative, this is way more plausible than The Night Manager, and the acting is better despite the lack of big names.


    It's also on BBC1 if you can't drive on the right side of the road. (also on Kodi, because really that's how people watch tv now)

    It’s a shit name, I agree. It has to do with the mcdonalds business model, and why mcdonalds is more successful than Burger King.

    Yeah, that’s precisely the reason I didn’t want to watch the show at first. Glad I got over the shitty name.

    Wait a minute, this show has nothing to do with McDonald's? I envisioned a show where Ronald is breaking kneecaps and shaking down Wendy's managers.

    Watched the first episode twice now. It's a pretty damn good pilot and agree it's better than The Night Manager. The title is terrible but like Charlie said it makes sense when they explain it.

    I just finished watching this... I enjoyed it...

    Not as good as The Night Manager tho....

    It was very Godfatheresque.... "What Would YOU do to protect your dodgy as fook family..?"...

    Spoiler:
    I liked how through... need and necessity... Alex slowly turned into one ruthless mofo... and the depiction that guys in suits are now teh new Mafia...


    4/5 stars....

    Night Manager was complete horse crap with pretty wrapping paper. How can you suspend the disbelief of Loki happening to plant himself in all the hotels where Dr House was going to?

    The Worricker movies did the night manager way better than night manager did itself.
