ICE: SEASON ONE REVIEWED
“Ice” is pretty typical, but it aims high. Hell, a central piece of the show involves a rather expensive Holocaust diamond. Jeremy Sisto and Donald Sutherland are the highlights, as we follow a rather masculine family of diamond smugglers, thieves and/or enthusiasts. I remember seeing ads for the series airing on one of the DirecTV controlled channels, but that’s about it. So, what does that mean to the casual viewer?
Well, it’s the TV equivalent of a well made enough DTV movie. There is nothing about it that will tug at the brain. Still, one should admire its ability not to turn into another crime fiction clone. You know the ones. The ones with sloppy Tarantino narrative botch jobs set to Z-grade Scorsese soundtracks. Antoine Fuqua isn’t a personal favorite, but the guy has an eye for this sort of things. I just wish he got to helm more of the series.
