I saw the original film based on Roberto Saviano’s explosive nonfiction book, Gomorrah, so when a friend told me about the TV series, Gomorrah I knew it would be something I'd like. It is the story of the Camorra mafia clan run by Don Pietro Savastano (Fortuna Cerlino) in Naples, so there is lots of gratuitous violence. The story mostly follows the doings of his trusted lieutenant Ciro (Marco D'Amore) and Don Pietro's son Genny (Salvatore Esposito). All three actors mange have mastered the menacing 10 yard stare. I have watched the first season and have just started watching the second season (a third has been green lighted). It is fast paced action, compelling storylines with excellent production values ala HBO series Sopranos was probably a blue print for the series as well. But what standouts is the artistic cinematography and exotic European locations used throughout. I was hooked from the first episode-looking forward to more viewing pleasure.
