Boardwalk Empire. It’s kind of a cliche to find yourself saying, “You know, you should really watch the prestigious new HBO drama with the great pedigree.” But in this case, you really should. Boardwalk Empire is a Prohibition-era drama from Terence Winter (who was a writer on The Sopranos), and it stars, among others, Steve Buscemi, Michael Shannon, and Michael K. Williams, whom The Wire fans will recognize as one Omar Little. Oh, and — the first episode was directed by Martin Scorsese, who’s one of the executive producers. It’s a genuinely terrific show.
