David Simon can do whatever he wants on HBO. He’s earned it with The Corner, The Wire, Generation Kill and Treme. Simon’s latest project is the six part mini-series Show Me A Hero based on the book of the same name by Lisa Belkin. The series is about the fight in Yonkers, New York to integrate low-income housing in middle-class neighborhoods. As with other Simon projects, the series is much more interesting than maybe the description suggests. Oscar Isaac stars and all the episodes were directed by Paul Haggis.
