I love that show. I watched it on Netflix a couple years ago (being born in 1984, I was a little young to see it when it aired). It was one of the first TV shows with a story arc, I think. It centered around the same tale that Scorsese would tell in Casino a few years later, based on Chicago Outfit member Tony Spilotro and Nick Pileggi's books.
