Did You Know?

Trivia

Many of the characters surrounding Nucky Thompson and all but the basics of Thompson's life are fictionalized. Major exceptions are the infamous gangsters depicted (i.e. Al Capone, Johnny Torio, Lucky Luciano, Arnold Rothstein & Meyer Lansky), who were based by the writers and actors to some extent on the real criminals' personalities and actions. 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 »

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.
