Storyline

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

Trivia

1920s Atlantic City was recreated for this series in a set in Brooklyn, New York. Executive producer and pilot director Martin Scorsese was so exacting in accuracy that (for example) he insisted the planks on the boardwalk be of the same exact size as they were in Atlantic City at that time.

Goofs

Both Western Electric and Automatic Electric candlestick telephones are shown. These were competing manufacturing companies that would not be seen in the same geographical area. The "Bell System" would use only Western Electric telephones connected to their telephone lines. Independent telephone companies would use Automatic Electric and many other manufacturers telephones connected to their telephone lines. See more »

Quotes

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

User Reviews

 
Buscemi should get an Emmy.

This show is loaded with excellent acting and writing!!!!! It's worth watching every minute and shot. Steve Buscemi definitely deserves an Emmy for his portrayal of "Nucky." I haven't enjoyed a show from HBO this much since "Deadwood." The characters are well layered and the dialogue is fantastic. The supporting cast is immensely talented and the scenery is simply gorgeous. Michael Pitt is a pleasure to watch in his, complex role of the war hero gone bad. I hope this show lasts a lot longer than "Deadwood" did and makes household names out of its cast. I'll keep my HBO subscription forever if more shows like these are on the horizon.
