Show Me a Hero (and I’ll give you a tragedy)- episodes 1 and 2

I’m enjoying the hell out of David Simon and Paul Haggis’s new miniseries, Show Me a Hero. I recapped and reviewed the first two episodes for Criminal Element. (They are showing them in pairs). This is gripping and important television, about recent and nearly forgotten history that is especially prescient right now.

It is based on a book by Lisa Belkin of the same name:
