    Anybody else watching this? I'm really enjoying it. It's very different to most gangland series. I really like the fact that they haven't made the crims OTT or anything, they're played very straight and very realistically. Plus it's got Vince Colosimo in it, one of the greatest actors of all time. Although he'll always be Neville fuckin Bartoss to me!

    I'd heard about that, kinda sucks but understandable. Carl Williams is a fucking classic character! The actor they've got playing him looks alot like the real guy as well. Such a clever bastard but with a face like that who would expect it! I never realized there was still that much money to be made in eccies anywhere! The actress who plays Carl Willaims wife is a proper hottie as well!

    Damn they do as well! I've seen pics of the real Benji guy as well, the actors got him spot on. You don't have any good links to real info on it do you? It seems like it'd be a pretty interesting read. You ever heard of a bookie called Lennie Burke from Sydney?

    Oh yeah mate! Carl Williams wife is hot as, she's got a bit of a mean looking face but damn does she look like a right go-er! That body.... mmmmm....

    I finally caught the final episode tonigt, I thought it was a bit of a let down. A bit anti-climatic really, the rest of the series was damn good series though. It's a shame it was made during the trial though, I reckon it would've made a blinding 24-part series with more detail in the cops investigation.
