Vegas 2012 (New TV Series)

Tried to get into Downtown Abbey, but realized I needed some old fashion gambling, mobsters, and strippers to wet my appetite. Stumbled upon a new syndicated tv series starring Dennis Quaid as a sheriff cowboy, Michael Chiklis as casino owner run by the Chicago Outfit, and Carrie-Anne Moss aka Trinity from Matrix who is the assistant district attorney.

It's a period piece from the 60's which is after Bugsy of course. Pretty much a time where the casinos began their colossal transition from small time to a world renowned mecca with lots of colourful characters entering the picture.

The other Vegas series had a much more modern take with James Caan at the helm. It was too bad he left being replaced with Magnum PI...heh...heh. The show was never the same after. Man they had hot actresses in that show version.

If you're looking for something light and entertaining give the show a try.

Note: Created by Nicholas Pileggi. For those who don't know who he is, he was responsible for creating a book called "Wiseguy" which later became "Goodfellas" and "Casino." So you know it's pretty authentic.

Mike from Breaking Bad plays a cameo of a Chicago Outfit boss.

PS: PM me for the link.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
