This trailer for Magic City's second season shows that Boardwalk Empire may not be the best crime drama on cable

01.07.2013by:

Starz does not command the same level of respect as AMC or HBO. The recently cancelled BOSS was one of the best dramas on television and the Miami crime drama MAGIC CITY is another. Luckily, MAGIC CITY is coming back for a second season of 1950s organized crime and gratuitous nudity.

MAGIC CITY's first season centered on Isaac Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), the Jewish proprietor of the Miramar Playa hotel in Miami. The 1959-set series followed Evans and his relationship with the Chicago mob, personified by the psychotic Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (Danny Huston). Olga Kurylenko plays Evans gorgeous wife and Kelly Lynch portrays his sister-in-law.

The second season looks to up the star power with the inclusion of James Caan as Sy Berman, the head of the Chicago mob family. Rapper Rick Ross will also be joining the cast. This extended trailer for the second season of MAGIC CITY is absolutely NSFW, but got me pumped for new episodes this summer.

The best comparison I can make for MAGIC CITY is that it is BOARDWALK EMPIRE meets MAD MEN. While I think that MAD MEN is a better drama overall, I think I may like MAGIC CITY a little more than BOARDWALK EMPIRE. But, that could be because MAGIC CITY may be the first television series to feature badass Jews.

MAGIC CITY will air new episodes this Summer on Starz.

Extra Tidbit: The hottie in the image at the top is Jessica Marais. And yes, she is naked quite often in the first season. You are welcome.

this show took a while to warm up and there are still some useless subplots here and there, but it has merit and is worth a watch. best crime drama? not at all, but i still DVR it.

and was that Rick Ross???

This show is amazing. It's the best underrated show on television that nobody knows about. I've been watching ever since episode one and have been addicted like crazy since. Can't wait for season 2 to start and hopefully with more episodes this season.

Boardwalk Empire is great, but this show is just better to me with more interesting characters and storylines. I'm also a die hard fan of Jeffrey Dean Morgan and he is the perfect leading man for a series like this.

The first season of that show sucked. I was bored and annoyed at the same time the whole way through. Well 3 episodes actually then I gave up.

I knew it would get a 2nd season no matter what. It hit the right cultural notes with the right culture but man...what a bag of shit the writing is.

..

As long as Breaking Bad is running, Boardwalk isn't close to being the best crime drama on TV. And I actually really like Boardwalk Empire.

I'll have to check this out, never heard of it

Boardwalk is still the best running show on TV though, but this looks pretty cool actually, I'm down!
