I was floating around youtube and stumbled across this video.

I'm dedicating it to [ profile] flyingpigs_live because she tells me I don't have enough fucking Jason Isaacs lol. I <3 you

And for all my F-list who love Mr. Isaacs.

This is a video compiling some moments from Brotherhood Season 1. It's definitely Not Safe For Work and not just because of the violence, you'll know why at about 53 seconds into the show.

I think I have a defect in me, usually violence bothers me but damn, not anymore lol.

After a long and trying day emotionally imagine my glee when I arrived home and found "Brotherhood" Disc 1 starring Jason Isaacs in my mailbox.

I've seen bits and pieces of the show but never in its entirety.

Let me just say this:


Sure, I admit I started watching for Jason but I was pleasantly surprised at how gripping and well done this show is. The entire cast is brilliant and the acting is phenomenal.

It's a little known series from Showtime that is going into it's 3rd season. It was renewed on the strength of how good the show is instead of ratings. It was also named by Entertainment Weekly (I believe don't quote me on that) as one of the best underrated shows on TV.

Here's a quick synopsis courtesy of

Set in an Irish neighbourhood in Providence, the series reflects around two brothers on opposite sides of the law: one a gangster (Jason Isaacs) and the other a politician (Jason Clarke).

I will warn you, the show is VERY violent and VERY dark. There are no real good guys in this show. It depicts the various sides of the human condition quite admirably. Michael (Jason's character) is my favorite and to me the most likable even though he's part of the Irish Mafia. It's like The Sopranos except set in Rhode Island with Irish gangsters instead of Italian.

Did I mention it's VERY violent?

On a total shallow note, not only do I get to hear dear Jason say "Fuck" a lot while looking gorgeous with his natural almost black hair with those crystal blue eyes but he also pulls off a Rhode Island (similar to Boston) accent. Hearing "Wicked Pissed" come out of his mouth sent me into a fit of giggles.


I'll stop gushing now lol
