Boardwalk Empire

Sunday, December 29th, 2013


I’ve become addicted to a new television show called Boardwalk Empire. In case you’re unfamiliar it’s the story of Atlantic City at the beginning of prohibition. It stars Steve Buscemi, Kelly Macdonald and a ton of other super talented people like Michael Shannon who is depicted here as Federal Agent Nelson Van Alden of the Bureau of Prohibition (one of my favorite characters from the series).

I believe they’re on season four right now but I’m watching it on dvds I get from the library and am only in the middle of ┬áseason two as of this post (so no spoilers please!) but am pretty much hooked. Check it out if you don’t mind violence, dirty language and full frontal nudity (all in service of a good yarn of course).
