The Black Donnellys

I did watch the pilot when I saw that it was Paul Haggis show, being a big Due South fan and all. I guess you could say it's an Irish version of the Sopranos, except on network TV. Like Due South, it utilizes music really well (great mix of music in the pilot) , and it looked a lot like Due South as far as the lighting and sets. Did I like it? I liked it well enough to watch it next week, but I'm not head over heels for it. It's not really my cup of tea as far as the genre with all the violence and the leads being criminals. But the characters were engaging. So I'll give it another shot next week.

Oh, and on a totally unrelated note, the term Black Irish -- the show used it exactly like an Irish friend of mine explained back when I was a teenager. So I was right. I'd used the term in fanfic I'd written, and someone commented that it didn't mean what I thought it meant, so not being sure after that, I removed the reference. I should have left it in. If it's good enough for Paul Haggis... [g]
