Quote :
"From Terence Winter, Emmy Award-winning writer of "The Sopranos" and Academy Award Winning Director Martin Scorsese, "Boardwalk Empire" is se in Atlantic City at the dawn of Prohibition, when the sale of alcohol became illegal throughout the United States.

America in 1920. The Great War is over, Wall Street is about to boom and everything is for sale, even the World Series. It is a time of change when women are getting the vote, broadcast radio is introduced, and young peope rule the world.

On the beach in southern New Jersey sits Atlantic City, a spectacular resort known as "The World's Playground" a place where rules don't apply. Massive hotels line its famous Boardwalk, along with nightclubs, amusement piers and entertainment to rival Broadway. For a few dollars, a working man can get away and live like a king - legally or illegally..."


Steve Buscemi is the main character. This looks...fantastic! Can't wait for this one!

<3 HBO original programming (most of it anyway)

Anything with Buscemi is a-okay in my book.

anyone else checked out the new trailer?
http://www.avclub.com/articles/new-boardwalk-empire-trailer-premieres-now-featuri,42057/

It looks appropriately awesome...apparently the pilot alone cost $50 million.

In high school I worked at a hotel in Brigantine (island just north of the borgata) and supposedly in the basement, there existed a tunnel from prohibition times. The tunnel supposedly ran underground to the north end of the island where mobsters would unload alcohol from ships. [/random]

HBO is on top of their game right now and I have continually been impressed by stuff that they are putting out. I plan to actually get an HBO subscription for the first time in 2011 to watch this and GoT among other things.

Buscemi is such a fantastic character actor....glad to see he is getting a leading role for something with this much potential. HBO continues to deliver.

looks really good. i think i caught a glimpse of omar from the wire in that latest trailer. it'd be cool to see him with another large role like that.

I could almost swear they aired the pilot several months ago, but maybe what I saw was an extended preview/trailer. I really don't remember now. Either way, I'll be watching this show.

I love Buscemi and expect great things

I think his character on Sopranos felt a bit forced and out of place in the scheme of the show, so this a great chance for him to totally redeem himself

Even though I know many of you read Sepinwall's blog, for the rest of you here's his interview with Terrence Winter about the show:

Only a week and a half left!

Loved it; couple questions


1. The Iranian/Mexican guy who was popped in the head at the end...what was his role again? Was he the head Chicago boss or someone lesser? I was a bit confused why he was killed and the guys who pissed off Nucky at the casino weren't.

2. Who was the guy who sold Nucky the shipment of whisky, the guy he met at the pier? Was he a major player or just someone minor in the overall picture?

3. What was the 2010 worth of $1000 back 90 years ago? I'd guess at least 10 times that, maybe 20
