November 20, 2018

Magic City's gritty drama will have viewers itching for more, thanks to a superb cast and the story's ability to humanize players in the typically unsympathetic society of organized crime and its subsidiaries.

Creator Mitch Glazer, a former cabana boy who grew up in this world, has recaptured it beautifully. No, it's not as unpredictable as Mad Men, but at least it packs enough of a punch to keep the conspiracy theorists at bay.

In any case, it's worth catching the finale, which packs in a lot of action and suggests that most of the characters reap what they have sown.

The show's rich 1950s Miami atmosphere serves as a spectacular backdrop for all the intriguing and seductive drama - actually, soap opera.
