Miami Beach is a destination that tries to accommodate events and visitors of all kinds. It keeps things interesting, but it also presents vexing problems unique to our city and its elected leaders like myself.
The first two episodes of "Magic City" boast a lot of what I call "H.B.," which is short for "Hey! Boobs!," which denotes the presences of breasts in a scene for one reason, and that reason is: On pay cable, networks can show boobs.
The series is set in Miami 1959. Part family man, part savvy business man, main character Ike tries to manage the two but can't help but get pulled into the undertow of the mob's shady dealings. Sopranos it's not. But that's good.
