Goofs

Corcoran and company are Irish immigrants working for the Metropolitan Police. The Metropolitan Police was formed by the state in 1857 as a counter to the pre-existing municipal police, and they were rival agencies. Irish immigrants worked almost exclusively for the municipal police rather than the Metropolitan Police, so it is highly unlikely that a Metropolitan Police precinct would would have been manned mainly by Irish.

Quotes

Detective Kevin Corcoran: I have a favor to ask.
Elizabeth Haverford: Well that's fortunate. I've brought you here to ask a favor of my own.
Detective Kevin Corcoran: [pulls out Elizabeth's letter] Next time, could you ease up on the rose water? I will not hear the end of it at the precinct-house.
Elizabeth Haverford: Embarrassing you was not my intention. It's just the way I smell.

An epic period crimdrama echoing the ghosts of Deadwood and Rome and so many others.
14 September 2012 | by wse-jackSee all my reviews

Copper may not be the greatest show on earth but it is damned good. Every time I start and episode I am put off by it for a few minutes, into it for a few more. Then straight up Enthrawled in it as the plot gains weight and momentum.

The show has exception gripping scenes of violence when it has them though it usually doesn't, but when they are their they fully justify the TVMA rating (which is hard to get considering the stuff that hell on wheels does only manages them a tv14).

The acting is superb, the setting well done despite a few quirks with some virtual backgrounds, though totally understandable given the small budget. all in all the people seem rough dirty and brutal.

Most of the show consists of a our main character corky navigating up and down the lines of inner and upper class as he searches for criminals. sick, petty. and vial criminals. that are intertwined in both.

The mellow drama isn't up to par with some other shows other but its not trying too hard and its also not trying to rip off these shows. In that the echos of deadwood are seen, if only they could make this like that, but that wouldn't happen, never the less the spirit in deadwoods creation is in this, just with less articulate melodrama.

The characters are interesting and engaging, the violence brutal and bloody and the way the plot snowballs in mini stories is great.

Its also a touch relaxing to watch, for all its brutality, its very comfortable. you trust the characters to behave as they should and in that kinda in a bit of a trip./
