    Damn, he's pretty right on. Up until the end there, probably. Steranko certainly has never been one to shy away from saying whatever the **** he wants, but... yeesh.

    I'm still watching it, but I'm honestly having trouble continuing to justify the DVR space. I don't even think it's that bad, but it's so ****ing bland. If it wasn't Marvel-related, I'd have stopped watching altogether.

    It's not that it's bad, it's that it just isn't good. 90% of it is meh, generic television reminiscent of the days when television was pointless and mediocre. The only thing that the show has offered that was fresh was going against the typical telegraphed romantic pairings, but that's trivial and probably a delay of the inevitable. I suspect that to 'save' the show they will introduce a character to the team who has powers. Maybe they can hire someone from Heroes.

    Jeffrey DeMunn MOB CITY Interview | Collider

    Wow, every time you turn around on this show they are dropping in yet another cool character actor, yet somehow the overall end product is less than the sum of its parts. Instantly forgettable and not at all compelling so far(3 hrs in). One thing though, my boy Robert Knepper is just NAILING it, especially in the interrogation scene. Dude plays psycho better than anyone. Prison Break was a real crapshow, but I still say go back and watch simply for him, William Fichtner, and Michael Rapaport.

    One more thing about Mob City...I am a big fan of graphic violence, but the violence here is almost fetishistic. It serves no purpose other than to lovingly show entrance/exit wounds. One of the marquee deaths in the 3rd hour(cement pit) was completely useless. You never knew who it was/why they were getting filled full of lead. There has to be some weight, otherwise it's just a stunt/gag show. Disappointing.

    And Ed Burns is absolutely leadenly horrible.

    I find Mob City extremely engrossing when I am watching it, but it is very forgettable. It really is just a pastiche of noir clichés recycled for the 100th time. I find Alexa Davalos to be exceptional at her part, but at the same time her character is really not a character but 'formula noir chick'. I find myself really interested in Neal McDonough's character so much more than Shane as well. No real problem with Ed Burns but I find it hilarious that he can have a giant padded chair brought into his cell. The banana thing was deeply unnecessary, including the camera painfully slapping you in the face with the visual setup of the banana company slogan so the mobster can riff off of that.

    Prison Break was dumb total fun. I want to binge watch the whole thing again some day. After actually naming Knepper's character Theodore Bagwell, the biggest sin of the show was keeping his character alive because he was so good even though it made no sense for Michael and Lincoln not to end him about fifty times.

    Once they got out of the first prison, it became soooo stupid. I mean, a prison in Panama?? Talk about a show where I imagine manatees picking balls out of a tank to create a story...

    And yet I'd totally watch it if it came back.
