The prince is dead

Long live the prince.

In 1995 Alphonse Gangitano murdered Greg Workman. In 1998 Jason Moran killed Alphonse Gangitano. In 2003 Carl Williams killed Jason Moran whilst he was watching a kid's football match down where I used to walk my dog. In 2008 a tv show was made about these killings and all the other crazy shit going down in Melbourne between 1995 and 2004. However, the Supreme Court issued a suppression order banning the show from Victoria. So, naturally, bittorrent is the friend of Victorians.

It's a damn good show. I found it a little hard to hate the psycho Alphonse since he was played by the gorgeous Vince Colosimo, but I can't fault his acting. He's just too good looking. The guy they've got playing Carl Williams has a freaky resemblence to him, even if his portrayal is somewhat dumber than Carl (in jail now) or his much-complaining ex-wife would like.

The percentage of ex-Blue Heelers actors is through the roof, but I guess that's to be expected. Blue Heelers was pretty much our version of The Bill - every actor in Australia had to be in it at some point. Though it is funny to see Martin Sacks playing a bad guy.

Next week will feature the infamous meeting between Carl Williams and Jason Moran where Jason shoots Carl in the stomach to try to warn him off elbowing in on the drug scene, which instead made Carl decide to take down the Moran clan, allegedly killing ten people before his arrest.
