Boardwalk Empire

SBS One recently aired the first season of Boardwalk Empire commissioned by cable television channel HBO. Sure this was made back in 2010 but it has been worth the wait to watch this on Freeview.

This is one of the finest television productions ever made. Based on the books, this is realistic television and totally addictive. The issues the characters are grappling with (including racism, violence, corruption in politics, fidelity & religious hypocrisy) are as relevant to contemporary society as they were in the Prohibition.

The show also starts with one of the most memorable themes since well… Dexter or just maybe the Rockford Files.
