    I have never considered myself squeemish but when Tommy took the sledgehammer to Louie Downtown I actually had to look away.
    This show is pretty graphic.
    The "I want you, but I can't have you" storyline between Tommy and Jenny is going to get old fast. I'm glad you stopped by.. I had to tell you that I can't do this...
    um Jenny ?? too late and very selfish to state this after their little triste

    The Black Donnellys: The true story of Canada's most barbaric feud - By: Thomas P. Kelley

    It doesn't look like even remotely the same story.

    also: Amazon.com: The Black Donnellys: Books: Thomas P. Kelley

    It looks to me like the writers of the show neither knew nor particularly cared that there was an existing semi-historical work about a crew of mass murderers and the vigilante justice visited back upon them...

    Thanks Krom! I guess they just liked the family name....or the rewrites were so many they lost the original premise after the first few drafts.

    In the lead up to the debut Haggis...a Canadian..was asked if he was influenced by the "famous" Black Donnely's and he did know the story but hadn't intended to tell that particular story...even in an updated version.
