Review: Underbelly: Wise Monkeys

Season 1 / Episode 7 / "Wise Monkeys"
"The ladies of the underworld..."
Click to read review - may contain spoilers

Underbelly is starting to verge on low grade pornography. Even Chopper Reed was quoted this week saying that none of these real life gangsters were playboys. I'm sure the writers of Underbelly could have found other avenues to focus on to keep us watching.

This episode really seemed like filler focusing mostly on the ladies of the underworld. Who of course go where the money is and seem to cast a blind eye to where it comes from. Plus we can all tell where the relationship between Benji & Mrs Williams is going.

Look there also seems to be pattern forming, someone has to die every episode... The show needs to stick a little more to the facts, back down on the smut and tell the story as it was.
