Season Review-Boardwalk Empire Season 1

by whifferrack | created - 11 Jul 2012 | updated - 17 Jul 2012 | Public

Overall: 8-great Some really awesome characters here, nice violence, and a surprisingly good story. It's a slick well done period drama that while I wouldn't miss if it was gone, I still watch it every Sunday.
