I was told about this show by my cousin. It sounded good but my oh my I didn't expect it to be this good. You most likely already know the premise of the show so I won't spend time on that for now. But the writing is superb. Holt McCallany as the main character Patrick "Lights" Leary is a fine performance.
The beauty of this show is that it doesn't just focus on the boxing but on the boxer's personal life and the ins and outs of the murky world of professional boxing.
The makers of this show must have researched well since it feels like the real deal.
The scripting is excellent and unpredictable yet always believable.
My only one gripe with the show is that the boxers don't really look big enough to be heavyweights, they look more like middleweights.
I only sat down to watch one or two episodes but finished the entire season off in two nights after work, compelling stuff.
Looking forward to season two.
