Atlantic City, 1920. When alcohol was outlawed, outlaws became kings. HBO presents Season One of this epic new drama series that follows the birth and rise of organized crime in 'the world's playground' at the dawn of Prohibition. Steve Buscemi heads up the cast as Enoch 'Nucky' Thompson, the city's undisputed czar who is equal parts politician and gangster. With illegal alcohol opening up lucrative opportunities, Atlantic City becomes a major hub of bootlegging activity as Nucky and his inner circle preside over notorious backroom politics, vicious power struggles, a constant onslaught by the Feds, and Nucky's own insatiable appetite for women, profits and power.

On the eve of Prohibition, Atlantic City's duplicitous Treasurer, Nucky Thompson, condemns alcohol at a Women's Temperance League meeting, then privately tells his Ward Bosses about the opportunity to make huge profits selling bootleg liquor. At a countdown to midnight blast at Babette's Supper Club, he flirts with Margaret Schroeder, a pretty, pregnant wife looking for help getting her abusive husband Hans a job, and assures Jimmy Darmody, a recently returned WWI vet, that his appointment as "Man Friday" to the new Chief Clerk of the Fourth Ward, Paddy Ryan, will lead to bigger things. Jimmy, who has higher aspirations, ends up befriending Al Capone, a young Chicago thug in town with boss Arnold Rothstein, who's setting up bootleg deals with Nucky.

Boardwalk Empire is worth the $, not the ITunes Season Pass
HBO is simply the best at original programing, AMC is a distant second. I'm glad to see HBO will make the entire season, every episode, available on January 10. If that is the case, it is a bit expensive but hard to resist. However, when I purchased Breaking Bad season 4 season pass, I was the last person who had access to the latest episode. If you bought a new single episode week by week, you could watch it as soon as the episode aired. If you bought a season pass, you will be able to download it sometime later the next day! They add a five minute recap with the episode for season pass holders, but it is nothing insightful or interesting. Itunes has a ways to go with the Season Pass offer, because you put the money up first, and get the episodes last.
They're going to get a lot of complaints about the price per episode.
This is one of them.
One Lousy $ Off for Full Season -- AND $4/Episode?
Hey HBO -- this show would probably be #1 on iTunes but for the extortionate pricing. If I buy the whole season I ONLY have to shell out $47 instead of $48 -- woo-hoo!!!! Sign me .... off.
