It’s about the fight for public housing and desegregation in Yonkers, N.Y. in 1987. If you think that doesn’t sound dramatic or exciting, you’d be dead wrong. I watched all six hours straight through and found the series riveting from the first scene to the last.

[Simon’s] work is more morally and politically and dramatically advanced than almost anyone who naysays it. Show Me a Hero practices exactly this kind of storytelling, and the approach here might be the most radical yet in a Simon series. When you watch it, you often feel as if you’re simultaneously reading a novel about the main story (the council) and a collection of short stories about all the other characters.

These distancing indulgences are unsurprising for Haggis, but they’re shockingly uncharacteristic of The Wire’s Simon and Zorzi, and it’s simultaneously startling and depressing to watch a Simon production that’s this stilted and obvious.
