An important character of this show speaks to the protagonist Alex, ‘Why do you think McDonald’s is bigger than Burger King? It’s because they are more in number’. That’s precisely how the show got its name McMafia. Alex Godman is the good guy from a disputed Russian family, which is under attack by their native gangs. Alex breaking into the world of mafias to protect his family makes for an intriguing watch. The show is very well written and shot beautifully over the vast European landscape, and even touches upon a great deal of Russian history. So refresh your knowledge on World Wars a bit and enjoy this brilliant show.
