The mobsters in this period drama make their own luck, whether that means heisting a shipment of liquor when the opportunity arises or cheating anyone foolish enough to do business with them. The established mob bosses and the younger thugs are all on the make and will double-cross anyone to make a buck if they think they can get away with it.
Mobsters threaten -- and sometimes kill -- people with guns or just beat them with their bare hands. People get shot in the head at close range, on-screen, and/or get pummeled severely. Some scenes of domestic violence, with husbands beating their wives.
Some scenes featuring full-frontal nudity and loud, vigorous sex.
Near-constant swearing, including "s--t," "ass," "c--ksucker," "piss," and just about every variation of "f--k."
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
The series takes place during Prohibition, so there are many scenes that show people smuggling and consuming liquor. Some people get quite drunk. Characters also smoke frequently, which is accurate for the period.
