5.0 out of 5 stars A FIRST -- WE LOVE THE "BAD GUYS" Oct. 17 2003
KINGPIN, is one of my favorite movies/shows. Why NBC cancelled the series is beyond me. However, by reading some of your posts, I don't think that you were aware that BRAVO actually CONTINUED the Kingpin series, and resolved everything over 4-5 more episodes....I don't want to spoil everything that happened, but if you want to know, write a post (reply), and I'll tell you. ***YOU WON'T EVEN BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED***, It was "off the hook"!!!! I love it!! I love it!! I love it!! Now my question is: Where can we buy the ENTIRE series (NBC&BRAVO).
Some spoilers (not too much in detail, don't want to ruin things):
** Rape -- can't tell you who it will spoil things.
** Murder -- connected to the "rape", and war between families.
** Resolution to the Agent who was almost killed (the ultimate drug bust).
** Resolution to Malika Yoba (dirty Agent) and the nightclub.
** Wife leave rehab and returns home to Miguel.
** Dr. loses his money...Dr. finds his money (but hands change...i.e. dr/bodyguard relationship)

4.0 out of 5 stars Kingpin May 14 2003
This 6 episode (3 disk) series was made for and recently aired on network television, but in my opinion was quite successful in narrowing the distinction between traditional TV fare and far more graphic projects usually associated with pay cable offerings. It is the saga of a fabulously wealthy Mexican crime family presiding over a global drug cartel, and the 6 episodes define how the power of that family was violently consolidated under the quiet and cunning leadership of Miguel Cadena,(Yancey Arias). Much of what was done has been done before and inevitable comparisons to "The Godfather" are sure to be raised. But with a mostly Hispanic cast, cultural values usually associated as south of the border, and highly imaginative plot twists, this work is sometimes brilliant. The production values of this series more closely resemble that of film rather than episodic weekly television. With just 6 episodes in the can, I think the series ended a bit too soon, and this viewer was left wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kingpin - The MINI-SERIES Dec 17 2003
1. Kingpin was never meant to be a full-fledged network series - it was always meant to be a mini series.
2. It is by far the BEST network mini series I have EVER seen. (note....this does not include any CABLE mini series)
3. It was first aired by NBC and a few months later, cable network Bravo aired the series uncut. I personally watched both airings before purchasing the DVD. Excellent!
4. There are three stories which are intertwined in one way or another (american doctor dealing with a hitman who works for a drug dealer who is being investigated by a couple of DEA agents of which one agent previously investigated the kingpin before her partner was killed) More than three stories? In theory, yes, but they all tie in to......the Kingpin.
5. If you have not watched all episodes, please attempt to do so BEFORE posting a review. An informed reviewer is the best reviewer.
Till next time....

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, bad production Feb. 26 2004
By Chris
I just finished watching all three DVD's and I enjoyed the show. There were good performances, the script wasen't bad and it was very entertaining. I did have a few grievences with the show. First was the editing. One show would end and it felt like a month has passed in the show. The episode's were not connected very well, with a few exceptions, like great mini-series usually are. Another grievence is how the show ended. Everything seemed hurried, like the producer's suddenly realized that only 20 minutes of show was left and they needed a sudden conclusion. The show did not tell what happened to side characters, like the doctor or the DEA agent, the script just left them in the dust. If you like the Godfather Part 1, you will realize that the ending of this show is a rip-off of the ending of a classic. I would recommend watching this, but just don't expect too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kingpin Oct. 4 2003
This was one of the greatest crime series/mafia productions I have ever seen. It was captivating throughout much like the sopranos except dealing with the mexican cartel. How NBC could cancel this series is beyond me. I bought the dvd after viewing the recommendations and was blown away. If it were to land again on NBC I would be a faithful watcher of the show. How can we petition NBC to give it another try? It is injust how such low quality shows remain on the air and a show of this magnitude (which was far too short - only 6 episides) could be canceled. I highly recommend buying the dvd if you are a fan of the sopranos, scarface, godfather, casino etc... Please NBC bring back Kingpin - this is an outrage to many of its legions of fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars IF YOU ARE A GANGSTER JUNKIE May 28 2003
This is definitly something to add to your collection when it's released. I sat through all six episodes and must say I was more than impressed. Although it wasn't given enough time to develope the six episodes were explosive and with a cast of very well potrayed characters. Although you can never compare a movie to such likes as the "GODFATHER" "GOODFELLAS" "CASINO" "A BRONX TALE" SCARFACE" "CARLITOS WAY" you won't want to leave this one out of your collection. And if you're a hispanic, it's just great to see our own representing the life of crime that some of us live to survive....OVERALL THIS IS A MUST HAVE!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Series!!
Interesting and likeable characters. Only character I didn't like was the female DEA agent. Wish they would have made more seasons and continued the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness this is off the air
The entire concept of the show is a very bad Sporanos rip off on either a much lower budget or just sheer production incompetence. Read more

One of the most amazing crime dramas I've ever seen. NBC made really weird programming decisions by having this show on twice a week for three weeks in a row. Read more
