  • 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).
