We dive into the luscious world of Prohibition Atlantic City. Al Capone gets his break. Murder. Mischief. Deals. Busts (both kinds). The beginning of letting go and finding love.
Fantastic sets and art direction.
Incredible acting – Steve Buscemi thy name is Emmy.
Brilliant set up to the series.
Ugliness countered with beauty.
I thought the opening credits are a bit contrived.
HBO is back with a vengeance. Based on the real life character of Nucky Thompson – this series raises the bar for TV even higher. The word that keeps coming to mind is luscious. The scope of this show, the sets, the party scenes. Just amazing. No wonder that HBO renewed it after just one episode went to air. A quick Google and I couldn’t see when it was coming to our fair shores – it is available on the US iTunes site which is pretty easy for we Australians to use (if we are clever, which we are).
