originally aired on HBO for 5 seasons from 2010 to 2014. I finally got around to
watching it recently. Great show. It is about
An Atlantic City politician [who] plays both sides of the law by conspiring with gangsters during the Prohibition era.
That politician is Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, played by Steve Buscemi. Buscemi is a great actor who really shined in this series.
was the executive producer and even directed the very first
episode. So gangsters and Scorcese is a win-win in my book.
Some of the actors that were in the series were another reason for me to check it out. Besides Buscemi, it also had Michael Shannon and Michael Pitt.
All great actors. Charlie Cox, Dabney Coleman, Kelly Macdonald, and Patricia Arquette appeared in the series as well. Buscemi's character was based
on real life politician
ch L. Johnson
. Al Capone was played by Stephen Graham.
The show received great reviews too. The audience scored it a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes
IF you are looking for something to watch, I highly suggest Boardwalk Empire.
