My rating: 9/10
Will I watch it again? YES!!!
From the first few minutes of episode 1 I was hooked. The episodes (currently streaming on Netlix) are about 45 minutes. Womack's narration is great. His deep, raspy voice aurally sets the tone. The music is well-integrated, the photos, footage and pacing fill out the rest. Man, and the subjects and stories are interesting as hell. And the series colors hardcore criminals of every color and gender. I love stuff like this and I REALLY miss the true crime show CITY CONFIDENTIAL (1998) (both A&E shows, btw). The pisser with both shows is their lack of DVD presence. I binge-watched the shit out of this one over the course of a week and that's a lot of viewing but it was so compelling that I couldn't stop. It's been a few months since I did that and now I'm about ready to watch it all over again.
