    Just ran across this 2011 series while checking out Starz.... the first ten minutes look dynamite.

    But I'd never heard of it.... can anyone please fill me in? Will it run again this year- a new series, that is....?

    A second season was ordered before the premiere aired. I wouldn't expect it until 4Q2012.

    We watched the entire 1st season while we had Starz free for 6 months. It was pretty good.

    This was the first thing Kelsey Grammer has done in years where I could watch him without thinking of Frasier. A good show and some fine acting.

    It's *very* good. A wholehearted recommendation here.

    I was able to watch the first four eps of this fine series, but now nothing shows up in Search. Netflix draws a blank, and going to Starz.com shows other providers have access to online viewing for their customers, but no listing for DIRECTV®.

    Any way to get this now that's legal?

    Only subscribing to Starz from what I can tell.

    According to the Starz website episodes 5 through 8 will on Starz Edge June 13 and June 14.

    I saw all 8 last year when Dish Network had the one year free Starz. A little slow starting but overall a great drama. Kelsey Grammer deserved the Emmy. :)

    Thanks. I am a subscriber, and will set my DVR next week or as soon as they're in my Guide. But I was hoping to catchup online earlier, or at least to find out if we can do streaming of Starz content to iPads now if we're DIRECTV® subs.

    Ah, excellent! I wonder since when?

    However, all my recent searches have been via an H25, which, I now deduce, don't include VOD....!

    Thanks....

    OMG! I watched the rest last night, and I thought he really cleaned house, but there are still quite a few characters left over in the preview! :grin:

    Glad to see he made it off the floor.... stroke? Whatever, he's baaaaack!

    Thanks for all the input!

    Wife and I finally watched this over the past week. Wow! Great writing, amazing acting. I agree, Grammer deserves an Emmy for this.

    For those who may have seen the film or read the book, feels to me like the writers had the Robert Penn Warren classic All The King's Men in mind when they imagined Boss. Kane is very reminiscent of the the Willie Stark character, IMHO.

    I love the show. I also have heard through someone who knows some things about big city politics (particularly Chicago) that the overall theme regarding corruption is every bit as bad as it's presented in Boss.

    Ya. Last year's Chicago Code on FOX painted a similar picture of Chicago politics. An excellent show that was canceled too soon, IMHO.
