Season Overview:

Mac Conway (Logan Marshall-Green), a Marine who returns home from a second tour of duty in Vietnam. With his relationship with his wife Joni growing tenuous, Mac finds himself tempted by a lucrative offer from The Broker, a shady criminal involved in a network of killing and corruption that spans the length of the Mississippi River. After a series of events, Mac – whom The Broker codenames “Quarry” – finds himself conscripted against his better judgment into The Broker’s crew, a turn of events that has dire consequences for both himself and Joni.

Before I even started watching the show I was told by various YouTube subscribers (YouTube.com/CinemaDeviant …..cheap plug) that since I liked Banshee so much that I was going to LOVE this show. They must know me extremely well because I really loved the hell out of it. It’s a fantastic crime drama/thriller set in the 70’s and has TONS of potential to be a show that could be the next big thing for Cinemax. I honestly get the same feeling with this show as I did when I saw the first season of Breaking Bad. There’s certain things that they set up during the course of these 8 episodes and there’s plenty of ways that they can steer it from those moments so I really hope that they get a chance to pay them off. Marshall-Green (who I like to call Tom Hardy Jr.) was really intense throughout the show and I was impressed by his performance. I feel like he really captured what it was like to be a down and out ex-Marine with his back against the wall. Surprisingly enough there really wasn’t anything that I didn’t like about this show and I can’t wait to see what’s coming next! If you love shows like Banshee or Breaking Bad then there’s a damn good chance that you’re going to dig this too. 9/10
