The Crime Series That Everyone’s Binging On HBO Max

Despite being an import that has largely flown under the radar stateside, Gomorrah has a vocal and loyal fanbase who love to talk up the series. And no, when they tout the show’s compelling stories and talented cast they’re not being hyperbolic. Gomorrah really is that good.

The proof is in the reviews. Currently, the drama has an average Tomatometer score of 87% among critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and an even more impressive 92% among fans. Season 1, in particular, garnered rave reviews with critics like IndieWire‘s Ben Travers declaring the show to be “more frightening than others in its genre,” because it’s based on a nonfiction book by Roberto Saviano.

As a result of the show being grounded in Saviano’s real life investigation into Italy’s organized crime scene, Gomorrah is devoid of humor or any of the lightness that can come from small character moments on other shows. If you dive into this show on HBO Max be prepared for a story that delves deep into the seedy side of Italy.

There’s no pizza-on-the roof moments of levity here — Gomorrah is a dark series, but it’s also an addictive one.
