NETFLIX new Mafia crime series BAD BLOOD is a Canadian SOPRANOS

It’s a story ripped from this morning’s headlines:

Enormously wealth, ethically challenged real estate tycoon with shady international connections and a background in the building trades desperately clings to power while under fire from  an overly zealous special prosecutor probing his organizations finances for irregularities. 


Are we talkin’ Trump & The Rooshins in New York City being hounded by Mueller for what seems like decades now?

Uh, nope.

This tale is set north of the St. Lawrence in Montreal and the tycoon under investigation is a Canadian Mafia Kingpin (Canadian Mafia? Who knew?) named Vito Rizzuto – who was a Real Deal Don back in the 1990’s and 2000’s up until his demise in the early 20-teens.

The Netflix series titled Bad Blood  is based on the book  Business or Blood: Mafia Boss Vito Rizzuto’s Last War  by Peter Edwards.

The Netflix series stars Anthony LaPaglia as Rizzuto and Sons of Anarchy’s Kim Coates as  Vito’s trusted consigliere Declan Gardiner.

The storyline is taut, the action moves quickly and the “hits” just keep on coming.

It’s definitely worth a watch if you are in the mood for a good “old school” style crime drama.

The first season of Bad Blood is only six 50 minute episodes long and is the only one presently streaming.

Make it a weekend binge watch.

Bruno Strozek is the author of occasionally semi-coherent piffle and has been a Writer/Editor at Sparta Report since July 2016.

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Aptly described as both "hilarious and deeply disturbed" Strozek has enthusiastically embraced the recommendation of the late Raoul Duke that "when the going gets weird the weird turn pro."

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
