The World's Playground
Well here we go again. New shooter coming out! Boardwalk Empire kicks off amidst a bevy of new fall shows, but the word is out that HBO has another winner. The show is being touted by many as the new Mad Men for its historical appeal. Steve Buscemi heads up a cast that looks to provide some amazing drama.
The premiere marks the return of Michael Kenneth Williams to HBO as Chalky White, an early favorite for name of the year. Most known for his role as Omar on what I think is the greatest show ever on television, The Wire, I hope he brings the same blend of wit and ruthlessness to this show.
Boardwalk will be held up against The Sopranos no doubt for comparisons. Is Nucky the new Tony? Can Buscemi be as captivating as Gandolfini was? We will see. Looking forward to your thoughts and predictions.
