Ultimate DVD - 12/01/2006 4 stars out of 5 -- "While Clarke and Caffee are both solid, compelling leads it's actually Gish who makes the strongest impression....A gripping series."
Empire - 09/01/2010 4 stars out of 5 -- "What sets BROTHERHOOD aside from the majority of crime-focused TV is that, like THE SOPRANOS, it maintains a finely nuanced sense of morality."
The Showtime original series BROTHERHOOD offers a fascinating spin on the well-worn crime-drama genre with the Cain-and-Abel story of two brothers on opposite sides of the law. Based on the real-life case of the Bulger brothers, the series takes place in an Irish-American, working-class neighborhood of Providence, Rhode Island, known as The Hill, where Tommy Caffee (Jason Clarke) is a straightlaced, up-and-coming politician while his brother Michael (Jason Isaacs) aspires to be the biggest crime boss in the gangster underworld. A taut character study punctuated by scenes of SOPRANOS-like violence, BROTHERHOOD's first season is presented in its entirety with this collection of 11 episodes.
