Being from South Jersey and going to AC all the time, this show is a gift from the HBO gods.

First episode was dope, too early to start talking classic tho. Buscemi was a beast, dude is a great actor, should be a really really good show. Historical shows from this period are dope, I googled the dude that got popped at the end of the show and its crazy how easy it will be to create great drama from real life. Chicago was getting it in back then.

You want good TV....write about the Garden State:applause:

^^ You're basing a hell of a lot on 1hr of a new series.

I don't remember seeing a character like Buscemi's in any other movie.

They're also showing guys like Capone coming up, as opposed to when they were already bosses.
im not everyone who said it was great is.

like i said from what i saw its nothing special from a over done genre.

youve never seen the gangster who doesnt mind being a gangster but doesnt have the stomach for all that goes with it and is nice to people probably because of his childhood

wow capones rise to power. he
[spoiler - click to view]

wow yeah thats new i guess

there are shows that reinvented genres the sopranos took a new take on the mafia the wire took an entirely new take on the war on drugs that first episode didnt give the impression they were going to do anything different

no ideas original, there's nothing new under the sun, it's not what you do, but how it's done.

Was a great start to a series, you can't really judge it fully off 1 episode, but it got me hooked wanting to see more. If anyone doesn't like it, do you plan on watching more? If so then the show still succeeded

wtf are u talking about why would they talk like they are from today. are u mildly retarded or did u get hit in the head why would i have a problem with the dialouge

people are talking about this like its something theyve never seen before like the writer did something different with this genre. maybe they will but at this point its been done

it was a typical prohibition era gangster story nothing new or fresh like i said the characters have been done before.

so because its on tv that means what exactly. it doesnt chAnge the fact that the genre is something that has been over done and its the same f**king story from the same gengre weve seen over and over and over again

sorry i havent drunk the koolaid and i am not just hyping something that been done before the rise and eventual redemption then fall of a gangster wow how revolutionary. the episode was a paint by number gangster story.

maybe next weeks episode will be different but this s**t is in the watch when ever i get a free chance show for me not i have to be at home watching it live show
Calm down dude.......its a great show regardless of being original or not. Plus its only the first episode who knows whats to come. The Wire was not that original but it was still special.

On Sunday, 7.1 million HBO subscribers tuned in to the three airings of the gangster drama. Those numbers led to the HBO action, according to published reports.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote that "Boardwalk Empire's" Sunday night ratings numbers marks the best numbers for a debut on the network since "Deadwood" premiered after an episode of "The Sopranos" in 2004.

Early sweeping critical acclaim for the Martin Scorsese-directed pilot also pleased the network.

On Tuesday, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo confirmed a second season renewal, saying in a statement: "All the ingredients aligned for this one, from Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson's initial pitch, to Martin Scorsese's enormous contributions as director and executive producer, to the genius of Terry Winter and the expertise of Tim Van Patten, to a stellar cast led by Steve Buscemi."

yeah HBO renewed this after the series premiere, that's saying alot. especially since supposedly the premiere is the "weaker" of the episodes.

It's funny how people are saying there is "nothing new" when it IS something new. No other show depicted Atlantic City and the inception of bootlegging, Al Capone, Luciano, etc. Just by saying that, you do not deserve to watch another episode.

no im just saying people are calling this groundbreaking when ive seen this before so how is it breaking ground when its basically retelling of a story of a genre the prohibition era gangster thats been done to death and beyond

there was nothing about this that was nothing about the story that was even new ive seen these characters before
Seems you are just hating just to hate.

Who called this show ground breaking? I sure didn't.

It's a dope show and I will bet that it'll win multiple awards for as long as its on the air, but I never called it groundbreaking.

Anyway, tonights episode was dope. It seemed to end quick as f**k. That's always good when an episode seems shorter then it was. Keeps you entertained throughout.


Great character development thus far.

Loved how
