Intense, compelling and confrontational, Blackstone is an unmuted exploration of power and politics on an Indian reserve. This award-winning one-hour television drama is unlike any other show in Canadian television.
Occasionally, TV shows come along that make us ponder philosophies of entertainment and the new Canadian series Blackstone falls into that category. –Toronto Sun
