THE PLOT THUS FAR
They rob, kill, and terrorize, and they ve left their violent mark on our nation s history.
Delve deep into the rich and often brutal bloodlines of gangs across America, from Atlanta to Oklahoma City, Detroit to San Diego, as SEASON SIX of GANGLAND paints a violently accurate and compelling portrait of gang life in America. Exclusive interviews, rarely seen footage, and unique access to the lives of gangsters provide a solid insight into why gangs exist, how they operate, their increasingly destructive methods, and the alarming rate at which they’re spreading to suburban and rural areas.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
The History Channel continues its intense exploration of gang life in the sixth season of this acclaimed documentary series. Power-hungry street gangs have long plagued America, and this in-depth program examines their history and operations. Gangs investigated in Season 6 include Latino prison gangs the Tri-City Bombers and the Texas Chicano Brotherhood, and the California-based Vagos Motorcycle Club, a band of outlaws formed in the 1960s.
We see why gangs came into existence, such as how many motorcycle gangs were started by military veterans affected by various wars, and how theyve progressed into their current forms. It becomes fascinating to see how gangs of various minority groups all have things in common such as forming to protect one another from majority groups; comparing the Portland, OR white supremacist group Volksfront to any number of minority gangs is amusing because they do and say many of the same things and are organized in similar ways.
The Blu-Ray comes with no special features. But, you get nearly nine hours of content spread across three discs. History and A&E has figured out an excellent way to spread show information without losing picture or audio quality. Still, the A/V Quality is on par with a really cleaned-up broadcast. The Dolby track only covers speech well, while the older footage falls apart in presentation. If you’ve seen a prior Gangland season release, you’ve seen them all.
