What a gem of a tv series this was. Shame it never went beyond 3 seasons. I first saw it on Virgin media. The two main actors aren't American but you wouldn't know it. Inspired casting and brilliant scripts keep you hanging on to watch the Caffey boys venture for control of there worlds of organized crime and politics. Loosely based on Whitey bulger and his bro in the Boston underworld of Irish criminal gangs.They were like depicted in this show protected by an FBI 'friend' who ended up doing time for his dealings with the Irish gangs.
If interested there is a facinating short location doc on You tube 'Brotherhhood.' Where the writer and one of the leading cast visit locations for the series. Jason Issacs is brilliant in his role as Michael Caffey the returning gangster who tries to claw back power and control from Freddie Cork. It is hard hitting and a times brutal. If you liked The Sopranos you will love this.
It shows in my opinion the gap between US dramas and our weak 'soapy' Brit dramas. Admittedly one episode of this or The Sopranos cost more than 8 episodes of a UK one. Even the Aussies in such great series as Underbelly show up our pathetic offerrings such as 'Father & Son' or 'Family.' as uninpired.So grab yourself a bit of truly brilliant drama you can revisit again and again. Oh and top of the morning to you.

I was attracted to buy this due to an ad email received from Amazon.UK, and after reading the reviews of the show, and now I am really satisfied to have bought it. It is very very hard and realistic, dark as THE SHIELD but with a vein of real sadness and desperation in it, which in THE SHIELD was probably hidden by the police actions which here are not in the plot, of course. And anyone has noticed that there is no music, no music at all during the episodes but only in the last moments of each episode proceeding then on the end titles? It occurred to me that the total absence of music concours deeply in the total mood of sadness, desperation and squallor of the whole plot. In conclusion, BRILLIANT, SUPERB TV SHOW, but not one of course for any little smile, not even now and then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Drama 6 Nov 2011
By Gary C
If you like me and you loved The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy then you'll love this. Another great American series. Tragic that it only ran for 2.5 series (series 3 is reduced to 9 episodes) as it's right up there with the others I've named who all ran for longer.
Another tragedy is showtime won't list a soundtrack. Some of the closing titles songs are superb, different one each episode, but unless you know them you won't know the artist.

A great show, just didn't run long enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars engrossing 17 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
The Brotherhood was purchased due to the opinions posted at Amazon, and never hearing of the series before bought on faith of these opinions. It proved again that the feedback posted was unbiased and truthful and once again gave trust in the quality of the buyers writing honest opinions which I am grateful.
My wife never enjoyed the Sopranos (I was a huge fan). But she did fully enjoy the Brotherhood which we watched over a 2 week period 2 episodes per night, last night being the final 2 episodes which we made a special occasion with a glass of Irish whiskey for me and a Baileys for my wife we settled down to complete the series. We were not disappointed, we fully enjoyed the climax of the Brotherhood but did not want it to end.
So for those of you wondering if these buyer opinions should be trusted, on this occasion I fully condone the feedback and add my whole hearted recommendation of a TV series which included great characters, actors and script which will keep you transfixed and wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brotherhood 11 Oct 2012
Brotherhood must be one of the forgotten gems of the last decade of American TV. For the sake of being lazy, it feels a combination of the Sopranos and The Wire, melding the tight character focus of the former and the sprawling distinctive setting and themes of the latter.

At its heart, it is about the story of two brothers, one who is a rising star in local politics, the other who is a mid level gangland enforcer with an eye on greater prizes. Set in the somewhat unglamourous and (in the UK at least) relatively unknown city of Providence, Rhode Island, specifically in the rundown Irish neighbourhood of The Hill.

What makes this show great is its relative unshowiness, none of the characters feel particularly larger than life, the acting never feels award bait and there is not the sense of slight self-importance that there was in the Wire or Sopranos. But rather this show's greatness lies in the fact that character development and plot development are not seperate issues. In fact much of what propels the story along is the character's own quirks, hopes, inner darkness and stupidity.

On the face of it, the story could be a rather cheesy affair if it was not for the this. However the contrasting personality of the Caffee brothers makes for gripping viewing even if the 'brotherhood' part is rather overstated. Tommy Caffee, the politician is played with a mixture of idealism, ruthless ambition, love of his family and Macchiavellian cunning. Michael Caffee (played by a career best Jason Isaacs) is the gangster, damaged and haunted by possible mental issues. A genius screw up either about to take over the world or bring his empire to self-destruction.

A highly charged story of family relationships, politics, corruption and crime all taken fro granted as part of the normality of the American way of life.
