Boardwalk Empire...

I can't believe I've not heard hide nor hear about this series in the blogosphere yet. I knew I had better remedy that considering David and I have just finished watching the first season and are eagerly anticipating the second. So here it is, a small post on a fabulous show - Boardwalk Empire.

It's set mostly in Atlantic city (and a little in Chicago) in the early 20's just as the prohibition act became legal in the States. It's a sort of 20's gangster series about the illegal producing and selling of bootleg alcohol and the politics and people that make it happen. The story telling gets you right from episode one (which is rare for a first episode), and the costumes and set...oh don't even get me started...

Talk about eye candy!
I highly recommend it if you are looking for your next TV series - without spoiling anything, there is lots of drama and intrigue, and if that's not your cup of tea, the whole design aspect of the series will be more than enough to keep you watching...
