    Need a new show

    I've heard good things about Boardwalk Empire but have not had a chance to see it. Would you recommend this show? I like shows/movies about the mob, so I'm guessing this will be a must watch for me

    I'm about to start Terriers on Netflix. I've heard pretty good things about it.

    Not a mob show but I thought The Americans (FX) was really good. The Soviets are like the mobsters you root for...

    But as was said the gold standard for cop drama series is The Wire.

    Re: Need a new show

    Boardwalk Empire is my favorite show. The attention to the history detail is very, very good. The costuming is immaculate and its very, very well written with some great dry humor and suspense. You'll never look at Steve Buscemi the same way.

    My only complaint is that, at times, its bloody and violent for bloody and violent's sake. There were two or three killings that both had no point in the plot and were overly graphic last season...

    Boardwalk empire took a few episodes to get its hooks in me, but its one of my favorites now. I'd recommend it.

    Days of Our Lives. I'm pretty sure Stefano is in the mob.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Need a new show

    House of Cards could be right up your alley. Its a political drama, but it stars Kevin Spacey getting passed over to become the Secretary of State (a position he was promised) so he decides to take everyone down. He plays a really good anti-hero.
