A deluxe if derivative wallow in crime awaits viewers of TNT's Mob City (Wednesday, 9/8c) a six-hour primer in film noir attitude from The Walking Dead's Frank Darabont that's as sleek as the brilliantine in "fixer" Milo Ventimiglia's impeccably styled hair. Saturated in neon hues and evocative shadows, this limited-run series (airing in two-hour blocks over three Wednesdays) is gorgeous to behold even when it lays on the noir trappings awfully thick.
Frank Darabont has traded zombies for mobsters.
The former Walking Dead showrunner's latest project is Mob City, based on the John Buntin book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City. The book focuses on the battle between gangster Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke) and legendary L.A. Police Chief William Parker (Neal McDonough), but the series features a younger Cohen who served as a right-hand man to infamous gangster Bugsy Siegel (Ed Burns).

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Fans who tune in to the premiere of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. shouldn't necessarily expect to see familiar heroes like Iron Man or Thor hanging around.

"Speak! Say something — anything," CSI: NY 's Mac Taylor demands during an interrogation on Friday's episode. Though it may seem like a pretty innocuous line, it's significant during this hour: Even though it comes roughly midway through the episode, it's the first line of dialogue uttered.
CSI: NY's Season 9: This year, it's personal
Appropriately titled "Unspoken," Friday's CSI: NY (9/8c, CBS) eschews the spoken word for the music of Green Day, which underscores the action of the episode's first three acts. During those scenes, a gunman (Boss's Jeff Hephner) opens fire at a political rally for a senator (Neal McDonough). In the aftermath, CSI Lindsay (Anna Belknap) is injured and a child is accidentally shot as the gunman flees.
Executive producer Pam Veasey, who crafted the episode, says the idea was inspired by last year's Oscar-winning Best Picture The Artist and came to her when she and the team were pitching fresh ideas for the perennial bubble show's ninth season. "We had pitched that our [goal] this season was: 'Do the unexpected,'" Veasey tells TVGuide.com...
