Series two of the Italian Mob saga, and the Rome crew are in hysterical disarray. It’s 1981: Libanese is in the morgue, full of holes, which means a race to find the killers and exact revenge before the police can make an arrest and spoil the party. It also means a power vacuum. Should sensible Freddo or hotheaded Dandi be the new boss?
A familiar Mafia-drama scenario is played out with conviction amid all the bulletproof hairdos, suffocating moustaches and bathetic use of British pop on the soundtrack. Tonight we get the Kinks and a simply baffling deployment of Total Eclipse of the Heart. A second episode is at 10pm.
