The sixth instalment in the Underbelly franchise is a far cry from the gritty, violent, jaw- dropping original that started it all. l. Tracking the life and crimes of Joseph Leslie Theodore “Squizzy” Taylor from 1915 to 1927, the double- episode opener is short on the bloody brutality we’ve become accustomed to in previous series. If anything, ng, the fasttalking Squizzy is more vaudeville than violence. Jared red Daperis ( pictured) is a perfect fit in the lead role of the vertically cally challenged gangster, who may have been short in stature but not in ego and ambition. The opener is a slow burn, as Squizzy progresses from petty criminal running pickpocket kpocket gangs, to bank heists and celebrity gangster status. s.
