Copper (TV Show)
 
I just watched the first two episodes and I have to say I'm impressed with it so far, never expected it to be this good. It's New York in 1860s and the main character Kevin Corcoran two months ago after coming back from the war finds his daughter murdered and his wife gone. He has since been working as a NYPD detective while looking for her daughter's killer. Sex and violence are obviously the main themes but there is a greater plot line developing in regards the the mob so there are lots of action going on.The show starts with a scene where Corcoran and his partners intercept bank robbers after their escape. They shoot them down and start helping themselves to the bank money. Story kicks off when they find the dead body of a child prostitute and Kevin takes a personal interest in the case.
Copper to me looks like a fusion of Gangs of New York and Deadwood, it's gritty and blunt as both and thankfully does not care much for PC. The acting is great overall since almost everyone got their character nailed although Corcoron's two friends/partners O'Brien and Maguire got work to do.
I strongly recommend this show, give it a try, good thing about Copper is that by the time you are done with the first episode you know if you want to watch the rest or not.

Yea do that, what stands out most so far is that it's not some tamed show all suited up for everyone's viewing. It does not go over the top with grittiness either.

What a finale, a great ending to an entertaining debut season. I'm surprised nobody has picked up on this.

Its an awesome show. Its hard to describe what type of show it is....

Its quite entertaining but spoiler
I dont like the fact that they found his wife and she turned out to be a **** that killed his daughter and had an abortion with his best friend. i was hoping she would be a righteous character.

I like the fact that they keep it real with a tendency to go slightly darker, it's a signature characteristic of the show. Spoiler:
Seriously I love the fact that they kept the child prostitute and incorporating her post emancipation life into the show. Any other show would have unburdened itself of such complex and obscene character with a happy ending to her misery which is a huge point in the favor of this series.

New season too off two weeks ago, I feel like there has been a change to the cinematography, mostly camerawork, which lends a more authentic atmosphere to the whole thing. Casting of guests has been done well and I quite like Brigadier General Donovan (Donal Logue). Maguire is going to become a huge player and eventually a badass arch to Corcoran, so I'm looking forward to that as well.
