Currently in it's sixth season on the History Channel, Gangland spends an in-depth hour exposing and detailing the world of the most dangerous gangs, from it's history to present day, clothing, mannerisms, culture, and membership.
-The Aryan Brotherhood
-Frank Lucas and Nicky Barnes
-Bloods & Crips
-and countless others you've never heard of.
The series does a nice job of including interviews with past, and when possible, current gang members, as well as experts and law enforcement. The re-enactments are decent and not overly melodramatic. I've never watched an episode and felt I wasn't given enough information. Anyone looking to learn more about gangs in America should check the show out.
Unfortunately, episodes are not available to watch on History.com, but Seasons 1-5 of Gangland are available on DVD.
I'm only adding this because I've been asked a few times, but yeah, I always accept review/preview copies. Who turns down free stuff? Email me at email@example.com for my mailing address. And thanks.
