Tulsa King: Great Movie Scenarios Crammed Into A Series
Stallone against a biker gang with a charismatic leader who inspires fear even from the screen? How about a veteran mobster who got out of prison, never snitched on anyone and is looking for everything he's missed in recent years? Would you prefer a friendship between a mob boss and his driver? Or maybe a romance between a released mobster and an FBI agent? Well Tulsa King is precisely that, numerous movie plots interlinked inside this gem of a series.
Tulsa King follows New York mafia capo Dwight "The General" Manfredi, just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla. Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a "crew" from a group of unlikely characters, to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet.
Oddly enough, the Roy Rogers is Oklahoma's official beverage. Famous original film cowboy from the talkies era of cinema. Since Roy Rogers isn't from Oklahoma, I find it strange. His only real connection to Oklahoma is that he famously wed at the Flying L Ranch near Davis and temporarily resided here while filming "Home In Oklahoma." You see, Roy Rogers was given the name Will Rogers even though he is unrelated to him.
- 1/2 to 1 ounce grenadine, to taste
- 6 ounces cola
- Maraschino cherry, for garnish
Pour the grenadine into a collins glass filled with ice. Top with cola.
Stir well. Garnish with a maraschino cherry. Serve and enjoy.
The show is really good with some great fights and interesting characters althought there is too much info crammed into the series. It's like the producers were trying to combine everything they could in it starting from something trending like weedshops and bitcoin to old school bikers and cowboys ready to punch your head off. After the first four episodes it gets a bit tiresome because every little piece of dialogue is there to explain something you already know but overall a great series to enjoy without thinking too much about it.
