Booze News: Don't miss BOARDWALK EMPIRE

>> Sunday, September 19, 2010


While it isn't exactly a movie, Boardwalk Empire is the most enthralling soused cinema entertainment that has been produced so far this year. The first episode of HBO's new 1920's Prohibition gangster drama premiered this evening, and I can't wait for the second episode. In terms of writing (The Sopranos' Terrance Winter), direction (Martin Scorsese) , acting (Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt, Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg, Stephan Graham, the great Dabney Coleman, and many, many more), and production design, the show easily bests Hollywood's recent theatrical output.

Like the late, lamented Deadwood, Boardwalk Empire promises to be appointment television, until HBO eventually decides it's too expensive to produce. Until that inevitable day, I highly encourage soused cinema enthusiasts to tune in and support the best that TV has to offer.

Cheers,
garv
