Did anyone else watch the HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero? Its by the guys who made The Wire and Treme. I am so completely blown away with this show that I am recommending it to everyone I know. Its about a small-time councilman named Nick Wasiscko in Yonkers, New York during the 1980s who is pushed to run for mayor after the court orders Yonkers to build low income public housing. Wasciscko wins but then has to comply with the court order and everyone turns on him. It then follows how the people of Yonkers fight over the housing. Not only is it insanely well-made and interesting, but it is actually a true story. If you haven't seen it yet, please just watch the first episode and I guarantee you will be hooked.
