Some months ago someone recommended me this serie. The main characters are played by Kelsey Grammer (widely known as Frasier) and Connie Nielsen (you may remember her as Lucilla, Commodus’ sister in Gladiator) and the serie goes around everyting that makes a good story: death, human fragilities and weakness, power, ambition, love, desire… and some times – few – noble feelings.
The plot is very intriguing and is excellently entangled, but the basics are clearly established in the first chapter: Tom Kane (Grammer), the mayor of Chicago, is diagnosed with a dementia disorder, and from that moment on, he struggles to keep his power over the city.
Boss is an excellent serie, I would say, but unfortunately there are only two seasons, even if the last episode of Season 2 was not definitive. Perhaps the audience rate, or the script writers’ strike that there was some years ago…? Who knows, but the serie is extremely good nonetheless, and if you fancy to spare some hours of your time, I highly recommend it.
This is the intro song, which I particularly like. Satan, your kingdom must come down, by Robert Plan.
