Superb series by Scorsese,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boardwalk Empire - Season 1 (HBO) [DVD]  (DVD)
Have watched this series from the beginning and therefore bought this DVD for several friends and family. Who did not have the benefit of Sky Atlantic. Without exception, they are hooked! Set in the early 1900's it follows the life of a very successful Bootlegger in Atlantic City. I fact it was the start of Atlantic City being a centre for gambling etc. So many of the characters are from that era and the start of the US mafia. Very intricate plot, but brilliant in its twists and turns. Amazing what the US censors let thru. Gives you a true feeling of the nastiness of that world and the plight of women during that time. Will buy the next series as presents.
