Boardwalk Empire

This season on HBO they are have a new series called "Broadwalk Empire". It's set in Atlantic City during the prohibition in the 1920's and 1930's. The show is about Enoch "Nucky" Johnson. Nucky was the sheriff of Atlantic City and later became a famous political leader/criminal. When prohibition hits New Jersey Nucky begins profiting from the illegal bootlegging alcohol. He also is involved with the other illegal activity going on in the town(prostitution & gambling). The government starts to catch on to what's going on and they begin to investigate Nucky and Atlantic City. Nucky is being played by Steve Buscemi. I'm so glad he was given this role. He is an extraordinary actor, but has never been placed as the main role. He's always played side roles. It's a good show whether your into history or not. Its got a love story along with everything else that's going on too, and like any HBO show it gets a little racy. If you want to check it it's on Sunday nights at 8pm.

  1. Correction-The main character on HBO's series is named Enoch "Nucky" *THOSMPSON*.... but the show is based off of the life of Enoch "Nucky" *JOHNSON*.
