Boardwalk Empire

Hey Scott, I was just wondering if you’ve checked out Boardwalk Empire. I’ll admit that it took me awhile (and HBO OnDemand) to get hooked, but it’s a pretty decent spiritual successor toThe Sopranos. I’m still not 100% sold on Steve Buscemi as the lead, but everything else is top-notch. Just wondering about your thoughts (if any) and anyone else on the blog who happens to be a fan.

Although I enjoyed the violence and sex, and I’m generally a gangster movie aficionado, I found it difficult to connect with any of the characters and dropped out after the fifth episode.  It just didn’t feel like anything was happening to me.  Really, the only thing I was watching on HBO lately was True Blood.
