Ever since it arrived on the streaming platform last week, viewers have been going wild for the "crazy" series.

To recap, the show focuses on five different families during the 'Golden Era of the Mob' - the Bonannos, Colombos, Gambinos, the Genovese and the Luccese.

It tells the story of their powerful grip on New York city throughout the 1970s and 80s, having risen to power during the 1920s Prohibition Era.

The series shines a light on how the five families took control of unions, high-rise construction and other industries - which collectively yielded not just billions of dollars, but authority over Manhattan itself, which quickly became known as the 'fear city' due to the public's terror over getting on the wrong side of the mafia.

As the former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani explains in the trailer: "They have judges they put on the bench. They controlled restaurants, the docks, the ships, hospitals. I can go on and on."

Using interviews with law enforcement officials as well as ex mafia associates, the three-part doc also features previously unheard surveillance recordings, news footage and other archived material.

And viewers were so impressed, one even called it one of the best documentaries they'd seen in years.

"What an awesome watch #FearCity was, one of the best documentaries I've seen for years, highly recommended," they wrote.

Another simply said they were "mind blown" while one fan described it as "crazy". Meanwhile, others said they had watched all three episodes back-to-back.

Praising Netflix for the incredible interviews, one viewer wrote: "Man. This 'Fear City' doc on Netflix about the mafia in NY in the 70s/80s is incredible. Some of these interviews with the mafia members are insane."

As another tweeted: "Netflix's Fear City docuseries is absolutely incredible. Superb storytelling + access to some mad tapes and interviews!"

It's fair to say if you're yet to watch the doc, you must make it a priority immediately! You can catch it on Netflix now.
