    McMafia

    I thought this series looked really good on the BBC and right up my street, until I saw the name. Now the idea of McDonalds Mafia is something I just can't escape! So... Has anyone seen it and is it worth watching - no matter how stupid the name?

    It does seem a totally ridiculous name for a show, haven't seen the program so can't comment further

    I have seen the trailer but I've not watched any proper TV since that terrible show about the miniature dolls on BBC. I will give it a go though. Watched a lot of Rick stine over the holidays.

    I see a woman in the nightWith a baby in her hand Under an old street light Near a garbage can. Now she puts the kid away,
    and she's gone to get a hit She hates her life,
    and what she's done to it. There's one more kid that will never go to school Never get to fall in love,
    never get to be cool.

    Just watched the first episode on bbci. It was very slow and I found it hard to connect with any character. Something about a family of drug smugglers and a son who does not want to get mixed up and is an invester.

    I watched the first episode last night too and I think it's going to be one of those things where you see bits and the story comes together at the end..

    I think the youngest son, the investor who made great emphasis that he did not want any Russian investors is going to be up to his eyebrows in them soon. Will watch part 2 sometime today.
    Uncle Boris is stereotypical Rich Russian drug dealer.

    Had to give up on it Suzi half way through second episode. Found the characters really difficult. Especially the young banker. I hope you like the series.
