Kingpin

I just watched NBC's new show, Kingpin. It's off to a promising start. It's been compared to the Sopranos, of course, but, from the first episode, at least. it looks like it's drawing more on the Godfather saga. The male lead, for example, seems like an updated Michael Corleone. It's also cool to see Sheryl "Laura Palmer" Lee in a meaty role.

Anyway, it's good to see an interesting drama show up on network TV. If it can avoid the most common pitfalls (a "very special Kingpin" [David Kelley disease], guess-who's-sleeping-with-who-this-week [E.R. disease], etc.) we might have something good.
