I Guess It's Pretty Clear Who the "Boss" Is


Besides a single Golden Globe win for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series for Kelsey Grammer, the first season of Boss was a dramatic opus that went largely unappreciated thanks to the fact that it aired on Starz. Starz has had some great programming (see the excellent Party Down), and its continuing Spartacus series has become something of the network's flagship series - but Boss could change that. The fictionalized look at Chicago politics sees Grammer playing a Daley-esque mayor who has sacrificed his relationships with his family to get where he is. Now, as the head honcho and kingmaker of Chicago politics, a number of controversies and a serious ailment threaten to bring his world crashing down around him. The series thus far has some incredible writing, and the stunning performance of Grammer leading a cast consisting of Connie Nielsen, Martin Donovan, Kathleen Robertson, and Hannah Ware make it a show worth seeking out.

That's where we come in: we're giving away three copies of the first season of Boss on DVD, and if you want to find out how to win one, just keep reading.

Mayor Tom Kane (Grammer) is King of Chicago and he rules his domain with an iron fist. Deception, scandal and betrayal go hand in hand with Kane's form of politics. As long as he gets the job done, the people of Chicago look the other way. Despite being the most effective mayor in recent history, Kane is hiding a dark secret. A degenerative brain disorder is ripping everything away from him and he can't trust his memory, his closest allies or even himself.
