Review: Boardwalk Empire - Another 'As Good As It Gets TV Show' From HBO



If you've enjoyed The Sopranos, HBO's most successful TV series and one considered by most critics the best TV series so far, then Boardwalk Empire should be next on your list of must-watch TV shows. The series follows the life of Nucky Thompson, Atlantic City political figure of the twenties that rises to success by holding a tight grip on illegal alcohol smuggling during the prohibition.

Enoch 'Nucky' Thompson is portrayed by Steve Buscemi, and his life is adapted by Sopranos producer Terence Winter from Nelson Johnson's novel 'Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City'. Buscemis performance, as well as the excellent portraying of the twenties, have turned Boardwalk Empire into a great success. Its first episode was directed by Martin Scorsese, and the costs reached an incredible figure, close to twenty million dollars. Ever since it first aired in early 2010, Boardwalk Empire has been a major success with both critics and the public. Eight Emmy Awards stand to confirm its success, and the TV series has since received many other awards including a golden Globe.

Now with the third season only beginning, and already showing same extraordinary visual quality in depicting the era, we can only expect to see Boardwalk Empire winning even more awards. Steve Buscemi is at his best, portraying Nucky in this series being indeed an inspired choice, and Martin Scorsese, a genius of both the camera and casting, is the man that ingeniously orchestrated this in the first place.

Verdict

All those into historical depictions of Al Capone's times, and indeed Al Capone himself is a very present character of Boardwalk empire, should not miss this excellent TV series from HBO. Nucky Thomson's empire built on bootlegging, crime and violence is presented to its detail as it is the entire era in which action takes place. Everything from costumes to settings and the interaction between characters is genuine. If I were to describe the series in one word, I'd have to say : Genuine!
