So is this good? I would just watch it, but I fear my ability to stomach Rudy Guiliani is very limited.

It was good overall, a bit repetitive in places, Giuliani isn’t the focus the whole series.

Does it mention Henry Hill at all? One of the things that I got from reading Wiseguy that wasn't as clear even from GoodFellas (which was adapted from the book) was how ubiquitous the mob was. And Hill ended testifying against a whole bunch of guys, not just Vario and Burke.

No, he wasn’t mentioned.
