The Sopranos gave us a picture of the Italian side of organized crime and family relations and this series is the Irish version of that. With similar subjects like infidelity, violence, drugs, criminal actions, and dysfunctional families there is never a dull moment.
The Caffee family or Providence, Rhode Island finds itself on both sides of the fence in a legal sense. Tommy (played by Jason Clarke) is a state representative and his brother Michael (played by Jason Isaacs) is part of a local crime syndicate. Michael's 'profession' has put Tommy in awkward situations several times. Led by matriarch Rose (played by Fionnula Flanagan), the Caffees are not exactly warm and cuddly.
