Ever since The Sopranos ended a few years ago, I’ve been waiting for something to fill the void. Well, HBO and Martin Scorsese have come through with Boardwalk Empire. This show positively cannot be missed. It’s already been getting rave reviews after just 2 episodes. I’ve only seen the pilot so far and I’m completely hooked. Set in the 1920’s, Boardwalk Empire follows Nucky Thompson (played by Steve Buscemi) and his rise to power as an alcohol smuggler, moonlighting as a politician. I think this will be the next big series for HBO and can’t wait to check out this week’s episode.
