If there is one disappointment in the first season of HBO's Boardwalk Empire it's that there is simply no way for any dramatic series created by mere mortals to live up to this show's expectations. Directed by the legendary Martin Scorsese, written by Terence Winter (writer/producer of The Sopranos) and staring Steve Buscemi - in a big-budget series that features the rise of prohibition-era Atlantic City, the pedigree is just too much for a mere TV show to live up to. But Boardwalk Empire nearly pulls it off - the result is must-see premium-TV.

Such a great show, it looked good on tv, I'm sure the blu ray doesn't dissapoint.

This is a great series, I think it's better than The Sopranos.
Just goes to show that human nature never changes.
Highly recommended, though its not for kids.
There's what people want to hear.
There's what they want to believe.
Then there's the truth.
