Set in 1864 New York, most of BBC America’s COPPER, which has its first-season finale Sunday night at 10 PM, takes place in the mean streets of the slums of the Five Points neighborhood.

Cooper    Director: Larysa Kondracki         Network: BBC America, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: October 7, 2012 Well it had to happen sooner or later, COPPER has started to become one of those interminably slow moving period dramas that can’t seem to fill up an hour worth of content that keeps everything interesting and moving along. The series has spent the first season careening precariously close to that edge on and off depending on what the […]Read On »

There are some rather disturbing character shifts in this episode, but the main story and murder mystery is one that ends up being comical (and yes I am surprised as you that murder can be a laughing matter on […]Read On »

Franka Potente in COPPER - Season 1 | ©2012 BBC AMERICA/Cineflix (Copper) Inc.

The new BBC AMERICA series COPPER is gaining critical and audience attention alike. The show set in New York in 1864 is a smart blend of period drama, police procedural, lots of action, and even some educational references. Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) is a man with a tragic past that includes a murdered daughter and a wife that has gone missing while he was off fighting in the Civil War. Even though Corcoran still has a wife out there somewhere, he has needs that more often than not are fulfilled by Eva Heissen played by the lovely Franka Potente […]Read On »
