The BBC America show follows an Irish immigrant detective (Tom Weston-Jones) patrolling the treacherous Five Points section of Manhattan and his good friend, a black doctor (Ato Essandoh). The Tom Fontana (the series' creator) stagecraft is in abundance, notably in dialogue that seems about as effortless as breathing, and a fully realized Five Points that is so squalid, so detailed in its destitution that the only touch missing is the rats skittering away into the darkness. First two seasons available.(Credit: BBC America)
