"...a keeper. Showtime's new political drama...is smart, saucy, and ever-so-satisfying. Nervy, compelling... Entertainment Weekly
"...intellectual...powerful...and thought provoking...Don't even bother with a rental, this is a show that you must add to your collection. John Cavanagh, The DVD Lounge
"...superb direction, lush cinematography and a slew of subplots...this character-driven family story is captivating on a multitude of levels. Phil Gallo, Variety
"...a fantastically deep cast. Though Isaacs and Clarke are impossible to look away from, Embry, Flanagan and Gish are doing stellar work here... Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle
Editor's NoteThe Showtime original series BROTHERHOOD spins the well-worn crime genre with this Cain-and-Abel story of two brothers on opposite sides of the law. Based on the real-life case of the Bulger brothers, the series takes place in an Irish-American, working-class neighborhood of Providence, Rhode Island, known as The Hill. There, Tommy Caffee (Jason Clarke) is a straightlaced, up-and-coming politician while his brother, Michael (Jason Isaacs), aspires to be the biggest crime boss in the gangster underworld. Their equally cutthroat occupations have more in common than they might think. A taut character study punctuated by scenes of SOPRANOS-like violence, BROTHERHOOD's second season is presented in its entirety with this collection of 10 episodes.
