When Alcohol Was Outlawed. Outlaws Became Kings.
From Terence Winter, Emmy Award-winning writer of 'The Sopranos,' and Academy Award Winning Director Martin Scorsese, 'Boardwalk Empire' is set in Atlantic City at the dawn of Prohibition, when the sale of alcohol became illegal throughout the United States.
The Great War is over, Wall Street is about to boom and everything is for sale, even the World Series. It is a time of change when women are getting the vote, broadcast radio is introduced, and young people rule the world.
On the beach in southern New Jersey sits Atlantic City, a spectacular resort known as "The World's Playground," a place where rules don't apply. Massive hotels line its famous Boardwalk, along with nightclubs, amusement piers and entertainment to rival Broadway. For a few dollars, a working man can get away and live like a king -- legally or illegally.
The undisputed ruler of Atlantic City is the town's Treasurer, Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, (Steve Buscemi) a political fixer and backroom dealer who is equal parts politician and gangster and equally comfortable in either role. Because of its strategic location on the seaboard, the town is a hub of activity for rum-runners, minutes from Philadelphia, hours from New York City and less than a day's drive from Chicago. And Nucky Thompson takes full advantage.

What can I say? All the DVDs work and it came with in a week.
Boardwalk Empire - Season 1 has an excellent story line, combining fact and fiction. It has a fine cast and fine performances.
Back in the day, the US decided to create a goldmine for the organized crime. Prohibition. This show follows the absurdity of it all. The violence and the corruption that followed. When politicians and criminals were hard to tell apart. Steve Buscemi is superb as a two-faced politician/mobster who rules Atlantic City. The look of 1920s is as authentic as it gets. Looking forward to season 2. For anyone who loved The Sopranos, this is a must.
