What’s new on the box(es) tonight:

Mob City (TNT) Miniseries Debut: Frank Darabont isn’t just The Guy AMC Fired From The Walking Dead. ---Long before he was dumped by the Asshole Money Channel, he directed some great (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) and not-so-great (The Majestic) films. His new Mob City—adapted from the nonfiction book L.A. Noir—is essentially a six-hour ’40s gangster period piece movie spanning three weeks, with an expansive, impressive cast: Ed Burns, Neal McDonough, Jeremy Luke, Gregory Itzin, Robert Knepper, Simon Pegg and even The Walking Dead’s very-dead Shane, Jon Bernthal. Mob City is faster-paced and snappier than Boardwalk Empire, far less stoopid than Gangster Squad and, at the very least, more recent than obvious comparison flick L.A. Confidential. It’s also story-rich enough become a full-fledged series—provided Darabont and TNT continue to play nice.
