Show Synopsis: (from the producer) From Emmy nominated executive producer/writer Graham Yost ("Speed," "Band of Brothers") and executive producer/director Jon Avnet ("Fried Green Tomatoes," “Uprising”) comes this stylish ensemble drama that tells the street-level story of the City of Angels with a unique twist—as seen from the diverse perspectives of the city's unsung and imperfect heroes. These are the cops, paramedics, beat reporters, members of the D.A.'s office and city officials whose stories overlap and intertwine, creating the experience that is Boomtown.

Usually Okay—My husband and I have been watching this show since the premier and now we look forward to every Tuesday night so we can see it again! I'm not sure it would be for small children, however, I don't believe there is much questionable about the content. Check it out --- it's "date night" for us!

Usually Okay—First off, I love this show. I give it a caution because it is not for kids. Much of the subject matter is for adults, so be careful. That said, the show is extremely well done, scripted and acted. Dreamworks has spent some serious bucks on it and it shows. While the characters aren't perfect, bad behavior is shown to have very real consequences. Plus, one episode had an overtly Christian message about support and forgiveness, both God's and ours for each other. Great show!
