The second season of the steamy drama series streets on November 5th.
Official Synopsis: Season Two begins as Ike Evans risks everything in a life and death battle to rid his Miramar Playa Hotel of the mob and Ben "The Butcher" Diamond. Ike's dangerous plan to defeat Ben takes Ike from Havana's glamorous casinos to dealings with a new devil: Ben's boss in the Chicago Outfit. Ike's wife Vera gets a second chance at her former dancing glory, while sons Stevie and Danny drift farther from Ike; Stevie toward the power and rewards of Ben's dark world, Danny into the moral righteousness of State's Attorney Jack Klein. Changes in Castro's Cuba ripple to the shores of Miami Beach, and a new world order begins to tear the Evans family apart. Even if Ike's long-shot gamble to take back his hotel succeeds, will the price of victory be too high?
The 3-disc Blu-ray release of Magic City: The Complete Second Season features all eight episodes presented in 1080p with Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround, as well as the following bonus features:
at this point, you're better off waiting to see if a series on that network survives and then just buy the complete series on blu-ray....Boss was an excellent show imo and they canceled it....guess they don't have enough subscribers...
Never heard of this show until now and now I find out it's cancelled? I will definitely look it up; 8 eps for each season; I like short seasons for shows (typically 12-13 eps) so this is right up my alley. I love the Miami Beach 1959 setting and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
@eiknarf - The worst part is that they left it so unresolved. It was a pretty good season finale, but it wasn't meant to be a series finale. Starz really sucks. Hopefully another network picks it up. Or at least Starz could produce a two hours movie to wrap it up.
And the last three episodes of season 2 were outstanding! I was literary on the edge of my seat a few times. I want to continue to follow the story of Ike and his two sons wanting nothing to do with him... Ike's wife, Ben the Butcher...etc
Sure, the series had it writing problems and as always, Starz formulaic-gratuitous-kitsch-cheese factor, but it seems like the kind of show that was slowly coming into it's own. Such a shame it only got a two-year run, because with a couple of more seasons it really would've been a hit. If someone like an HBO would've done it, it probably would've soared to the top. Because they would've had the common sense to know to make the Jeffery Dean Morgan-character more multi-dimensional and bring in some A-talent to direct the episodes...like say a Daniel Attias or a Timothy Van Patten. Some of the acting was okay, but the art direction, styling and the CG work of old Miami was top shelf. The actresses were stunning, especially Olga Kurylenko and Judi Silver. Starz always seems to nail the visual execution, but misses with the writing and directing. I bought the 1st season used on blu for $14.99 at FYE, so I don't feel that bad. I'd definitely look for the second season in the used section as well.
