    Imperioli was terrific on Detroit 187 (an underrated show). Looking forward to seeing him on County!

    I love Michael Imperioli. He was fantastic in The Sopranos and Life On Mars. I’ll definitely be checking out this show.

    Hope COUNTY gets the green light from NBC ’cause Michael Imperoli will always be Christopher from THE SOPRANOS. His character has becoming much of a hot headed mobster and he really deserve to get “whacked” by none other than (SPOILER ALERT).

    I loved this show when it was called Grey’s Anatomy, Mercy, etc! But seriously it sounds good and he is an excellent actor so hopefully this one is a winner for him. Detroit 187 was awesome and probably would have made a better impression on cable (like Southland).
