Monday Sunday night was the premier of Boardwalk Empire on HBO.
For those of you who don’t know – its HBO’s newest series that takes place during prohibition-era Atlantic City. It’s the story of “Nucky Thompson,” based on real life gangster Nucky Johnson, and his reign over Atlantic City.
Last night’s episode was very good. I won’t go through the play-by-play. The acting is really good and the cinematography is excellent. Although what else would you expect with Martin Scorsese directing? I’ll definitely be setting my DVR for Boardwalk Empire.
Ok, so it’s pretty cool to watch it and see sets that look like home. Because while Atlantic City has changed a lot over the past 90 years, somethings about a city never change.
Update: 9/21 – Glad to see I wasn’t the only one who liked Boardwalk Empire. HBO has already ordered a second season of the show.
