The Black Donnellys…

I caught the pilot online of NBC’ new show The Black Donnellys, which premiers this Monday, February 26, at 10:00 p.m. The show is about four working class Irish brothers who are deeply entrenched in organized crime in New York City. The show is reminiscient of the movie Boondock Saints – plenty of premptive and impetuous violence, and beer pint drinking. I think the kill count for the first ep was in the high single digits. I was impressed.

The oldest brother Jimmy – and chief lunatic out of the four – is played by the same actor who plays Scotty “I’m not good at anything mom, I’m just an egghead” Smalls in The Sandlot. This prompted me to IMDB my favorite character from The Sandlot, Michael “Squints” Palidoris. Turns out his latest gig was five episodes of Gilmore Girls in 05. Bummer.

Hats off to Yahoo! TV for posting this online. This show might become my new post-Bauer hour of power– hour (since it’s on Mondays at 10 pm….after 24).

    The Black Donnellys it’s a NBC show NOT a CBS’ show.
