Copper: Season One

Season One

This BBC America original historical crime drama, which aired its first season earlier this summer, centers on Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones), an intense, rugged Irish-American cop working the city's notorious Five Points neighborhood. Corcoran is struggling to maintain his moral compass in a turbulent world, while on an emotional and relentless quest to learn the truth about the disappearance of his wife and the death of his daughter.

His friendship with two Civil War compatriots — the wayward son of a wealthy white industrialist and a black physician, who secretly assists Corcoran with his detective work — takes him to the contrasting worlds of elegant Fifth Avenue and an emerging black community in rural northern Manhattan. The three men share a secret from their experience on the battlefield that inextricably links their lives forever.

Copper has been renewed for a second season.

Don Matteo: Set 3: Episodes 17-24

Don Matteo
Set 3: Episodes 17-24

Terence Hill stars as Don Matteo, a thoroughly ordinary Catholic priest with an extraordinary ability to read people and solve crimes. He is a parish priest who never met an unjustly accused person he didn't want to help. In fact, he never met anyone marginalized he didn't want to help: the elderly, the homeless, the immigrant, the unemployed. He sees them all as he bicycles along the streets and through the countryside of his parish.

His friend and chess partner is policeman Marshal Cecchini, who slips him information about new cases much to the chagrin of the police chief who isn't at all thrilled about the collaboration. But he's in agreement with Don Matteo about one thing: the importance of justice being served.

The episodes included in this set, in Italian with English subtitles, originally aired during October 2001.

Also being released this week: Don Matteo, Set 4: Episodes 25-32, which originally aired during November and early December 2001.
