Boardwalk Empire looks real promising. And luckily, it’ll be showing on HBO this weekend.
Taking place the day Prohibition was enactive, the show will tell the stories of the birth of organized crime. Showing how Al Capone, “Lucky” Luciano, Arnold Rothstein and other fathers-of-organized-crime came about. Also how Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, based off of “Nucky” Johnson, plays his cards as “half gangster half politician.”
I’m stoked to see this show grow.
Here’s a trailer.
