Boardwalk Empire

So, I guess this is HBO's show to replace their mainstays like Deadwood, Rome, Sopranos, etc.   Since those shows went off the air, they really did not have a "flagship" show to replace them.   I guess getting the writer of the Sopranos and Martin Scorsese involved shows they are serious.   Although I am not ready to accept that Timothy Van Patten (of Master Ninja fame) is a good director!   But man, check out some of the shows he has directed on IMDB...... pretty impressive.

Pretty much any show that has Steve Buscemi as its lead is off to a promising start.

They are promoting the crap out of this show at work. I will have to wait till the weekend to watch the first episode, but it looks good :)

I thought it was really promising.  It looks great, the cast are good, and the story is generally untouched by movie or TV history.
