Storyline

Set in the Prohibition era of the 1920s Boardwalk Empire is the story of Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, the treasurer of Atlantic County, Atlantic City, New Jersey. Due to his relationships with mobsters as well as political contacts, the Federal Government start to take an interest in him. His lavish lifestyle seems at odds with his position, and as well as his connections, there is prolific bootlegging in the area. Written by WellardRockard

Did You Know?

Trivia

After completing the first season, Anthony Laciura was contacted by relatives of Louis Kessel, the real life inspiration of his character Eddie Kessler, and offered to wear when filming the pocket watch that Nucky Johnson gave Kessel as a gift. "Eddie" is seen consulting the watch in the following seasons. See more »

Goofs

Al Capone's son, Sonny, is portrayed as being entirely deaf at the age of two. In real life Sonny contracted an infection that left him only partially deaf and only at age seven. However, this series is intended to be fictional, not based on real life events. Factual inaccuracies are therefore not considered goofs. See more »

Margaret Schroeder: I would be honored to name my child after you.
Enoch 'Nucky' Thompson: Enoch? You couldn't possibly be so cruel.

My 347th Review: ...this is as good as TV gets....
4 November 2010 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

With production values that are mind-boggling, cast, and a budget to die for HBO is now what film studios were in the 1930s, they have the clout and the ability to go way further than most films can - and you get episode after episode.

the detailing is beyond accurate and lavish - every stitch, every furnishing, every telegraph wire looks and feels authentic and it is all shot and lit to the highest standards of film not TV.

The story of prohibition and Atlantic City is fully detailed, complex, with Steve Buscemi heading up a great cast. I have a gripe that the F-word was not ubiquitous at the time and strikes a jarring note in an otherwise near perfect production.

Where this shines is in the details - I just hope the story lines and acting live up to the promise - they certainly have so far.
