Isn't this produced by BBC America, not BBC?

Kinda like comparing Top Gear to Top Gear America.

I liked it, but I agree it was difficult to distinguish between Maguire and Corcoran Maquire had more curly hair than Corcoran and had more facial hair or maybe just darker facial hair. I kept that in mind each time I saw them and I'm hoping it gets easier to tell them apart.

Correct, it's a BBCA production.

I re-watched the episode, and I agree with most of what I missed. But honestly, I have to watch the closed captions or I lose whole parts of the dialogue in the thick Irish brogue.

But notice, "Boss" Tweed was not mentioned. Nor was it generally true that every white man had a vote, particularly Irish immigrants. Generally only propertied white men had a vote, and the status of the Irish in NYC was barely higher than the "negroes".

It is therefore an exaggeration to say that the votes in "Five Corners" would substantually effect the NYC results in the Presidential primary nominations. There were very few votes to be had in Five Corners.

I thought the show was pretty good. Definite keeper for me. I had no problem understanding the dialogue.

i'm loving the show.
I don't quite understand what is difficult to understand abt the accent-

I am amazed at how much i'm missing with regards to the historical references tho-- I'm glad i've kept the episodes for re-watching. I'm visiting NYC in Oct & hope to find a good historical tour of that area. I did find this page that might be of interest to people. http://www.flickr.com/photos/amapple/5630172156/

I just caught the pilot. Very good. This shows that you can write a crime drama without using the scripts from 23 previous shows. I wish I could get it in HD.

Prediction: Just as the black man is about to be lynched, Corcoran will reveal to Morehouse that it was the African-American doctor who saved him by amputating his leg.

That method of paying another to serve your sentence is actually going on right now in China.

Just finished a back to back watching over the last few nights. Really liked it. Not too happy with that last scene though.

I tend to ignore the hashtags on screen, #Copper, for example. But this had one of the worst one's I've ever seen. A minor spoiler - really minor.

Spoiler:
When Sara became pregnant, the hashtag was @SaraKnockedUp


Talk about an out of place, out of time hashtag.

I was disappointed with the editing of the last few shows. I figure it is like most BBC shows, and they are having to edit for commercials here in the US from a show that doesn't normally have it. Doctor Who does that as well. But Doctor Who does it much better. I felt the past few shows were very disjointed, making huge leaps of logic and story that didn't seem to really make sense.

That said, I enjoyed the series and the premise, and I'll watch the next season of it.

Except it's a BBCA produced show, not BBC, so it's cut knowing what length it's going to be.

And the initial airing of each Doctor Who episode on BBCA is the same as the BBC version.

My point was that unlike the BBC shows brought over, there aren't multiple cuts for multiple markets in the same manner, DW is a great example of multiple cut versions.

What bothered you about the last scene?

We watched all 10 episodes over the last few days. Really, really liked it.

I don't recall ever seeing the actors playing Corky or Robert Morehouse in anything else. Both couldn't have been more perfectly cast. Even the supporting cast was excellent.

As others have mentioned, the disjointed feeling of the breaks was distracting. I hope they cut it better next summer.

Spoiler:
Curious to see what they do with Miss Haverford next season. As bat-crap crazy as Annie is she did call Haverford being a bad guy.

Was surpised Corky's wife made it through being watched by Eva and Annie. Not sure that storyline is over.

Wonder what will happen with Maguire. He killed a lot of innocents.

I dunno, it just seemed so out of place. I realize it was probably setting something up for the future, but I didn't remember or feel anything really led up to it.

They are both fairly unknown but Corky was in a season of MI5 (from the UK) and Morehouse from Being Human.

That's the benefit of watching them all over a couple of nights.

The first time Freeman gave Corky the medication for his broken leg he had a very vivid and lasting hallucination of his daughter. He took it again because he hoped to experience another hallucination of her. What is means that she walked out the door... We shall see.

I can definitely see how you wouldn't remember that scene 8 weeks later and it would seem odd (the medically induced hallucination of his daughter was in Ep 2). But having watched it a a night or two before it flowed perfectly.

Good, I hate Amazon due to the fact that they will not subtitle anything and remove the close caption from the video.
