    Boardwalk Empire on HBO

    Anyone watch it? Thoughts?

    I enjoyed it...although I usually don't like the first episode's of dramas due to the lengths they must go to introduce an entire cast of characters. This show seems as though it is going to be very entertaining.

    I have always liked HBO shows...but have missed shows like The Sopranos, Rome, Carnival and Deadwood! John from Cincinnati was horrible, Big Love is OK but gets too political and I watch True Blood even though I am not into shows about vampires, werewolves and fairies (OK, my wife makes me watch it).

    That said...Boardwalk Empire has me looking forward to its second episode!

    I thought at first a lot of the smaller characters looked too similar to remember who each was...but as the show went on I thought it sorted that problem out. As for first episodes go...this was a good one for sure!

    Thought it was an excellent beginning. The acting was great, and the production value was high. HBO does a great job. Now, what to replace Hung with, not a fan of that show.

    I thought it was pretty good. Took awhile to get things moving, but you have to expect that out of a series premier for a drama. IMO the more Luciano and Capone, the better. Also, the main character is going to need some personality out of his "crew"...something that Tony Soprano had with Pauly, Christopher and Sil.

    Nothing like a Steve Buscemi sex scene to start a series.

    I must be in the minority of people who enjoy Hung.

    Re: Boardwalk Empire on HBO

    Dish had a free weekend so I got to see the premiere. I'm struggling to decide whether it's worth adding HBO for this show. We've had it before and there really isn't much more that I'd watch other than this.

    You'll miss the season 2 premier of Eastbound and Down next week.

    I like Hung a lot! I think the actor who plays the main character does a great job! It is not a feel good show though as I thought it might be when I first heard the storyline.

    I am looking forward to the return of Bored to Death next week. I love Ted Danson in that show...as well as Zach Galifianakis (sp?)! The episode from the first season where Zach and Ted's characters are both high and follow the main character on a job was one of the funniest things I have seen on tv!

    Loved the 1st episode...can't wait for Eastbound and Down next week.

    Great to have something I am excited enough about to sit down and watch instead of just DVR'ing everything.

    Stop saying that...I wasn't going to watch since it seems between the wife and I we have too many shows on the DVR but I gave it a shot and I enjoyed it. Any show that has a feature with two little people boxing is ok in my book.

    And by the way...who do we need to write to make HBO finish the Deadwood series? I LOVED that show.
