Trivia

McMafia is a book by Misha Glenny about global crime written ten years ago. Many crimes/scams of the book have been included in the television series but it is the Russian chapters that formed the basis for the programme. Certain characters are based on real people and real events. The name McMafia refers to the way criminal syndicates would 'lend' the use of their name to smaller criminal gangs for a fee (such as a small Russian gang using the 'chechyn mafia' name to make intimidation and extortion easier because of the Chechyn mob's feared reputation) This is where the 'franchising' idea like that of McDonald's relates to 'McMafia'.

One of the best shows I've seen
13 February 2018 | by y-61772See all my reviews

I decided to watch McMafia one evening thinking that I'm not going to last even 10 min into it. Pretty much was expecting Russian cliches on top of cliches. Was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong. Just after one episode, I was hooked. Let me tell you ... the first season ending that aired yesterday was one of the best endings in a long time ... period. This show is for people who have an open mind and wants to feel something new and exciting. This show is focused on eastern Europe and two Russian families in particular. Both hero and a villain great however actor who the plaid villain is just astonishing. Russian cast is genuinely talented. There are similarities between this and Godfather however they are entirely different. Another thing I really loved about this show is that there is no unnecessary drama or long episodes that make no sense. All eight episodes go by very fast. One caveat - This show is not for people with a victim mentality.
