Australia’s best ever crime drama! I F’in love this show! It’s like they took “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Soprano’s” and “The Wire” and set it in Australia. It’s a brutal show, just how I like it, with tons of gangster shit, mayhem, violence and some of the finest Aussie chicks to ever grace the screen! I’ve loved the entire series, but so far Season 2 & 3 are my favorites; Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities & Underbelly: The Golden Mile.

A Tale of Two Cities is a 13-part Australian television mini-series loosely based on real events that stemmed from the marijuana trade centered around the New South Wales town of Griffith. The timeline of the series is the years between 1976 and 1987. Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities primarily depicts the Mr. Asia drug syndicate and its influence on crime in Australia. Among the characters presented are real-life criminals Robert Trimbole, Terry Clark, George Freeman, Christopher Dale Flannery and the Kane Brothers. The mini-series is a prequel to the 2008 production Underbelly, which was about the Melbourne gangland killings and forms part of the Underbelly series. Good stuff!

The Golden Mile is a 13-part Australian television mini-series loosely based on real events that stemmed from the nightclub scene of the Sydney suburb of Kings Cross. The timeline of the series is the years between 1988 and 1999. it primarily depicts the running of Kings Cross and the corruption of police leading up to the 1995 Wood Royal Commission. The mini-series is a prequel to the 2008 production Underbelly, which was about the Melbourne gangland killings and a sequel to the 2009 production Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities which forms part of the Underbelly series. Among the characters presented are John Ibrahim, Kim Hollingsworth, George Freeman, Lenny McPherson and MP John Hatton. Some of the characters, particularly those of the NSW Police, reprise their roles from Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities. 110% gangster shit!
