Ok, so, Boardwalk Empire is probably a great show, and Boardwalk Empire premieres Sunday September 19th on HBO, as our TV Comeback Calendar tells.
The show is starting its rookie season, and you should not miss the first season of Boardwalk Empire, but you may be wondering… why is this guy from Series & TV saying that Boardwalk Empire is a must watch show this fall?
Well, that´s why I´ve compiled the top ten reasons why you should watch Boardwalk Empire this fall.
Top 10 reasons to watch Boardwalk Empire
1- The Cast of Boardwalk Empire:
You know, there´s Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt and many many more.
2- The Story behind the scripts
The Show Chronicles the life and times of Nucky Thompson, the undisputed ruler of Atlantic City, who was equal parts politician and gangster.
3- Al Capone and the mafia
Everything with Al Capone and a bunch of Atlantic City mob is good… when you see who´s behind all that, it´s great.
4- The Trailers
Folks at HBO did a great job in promoting the show, and when you watch the trailer for Boardwalk Empire, you´ll know what I mean.

5- The Director
Martin Freakin´Scorsese! Yes, the one from Goodfellas, Casino, The Departed, Cape Fear, The Age of Innocence and many more. Yup! That Scorsese.
6- The Creator
The man who´s behind all this: Terence Winter. The one and only. The same who created one of the best shows ever, and probably the best mafia show ever: The Sopranos.
7- The Time
Boardwalk Empire is about the 1920´s. There´s been a long time since a good show covered that period of time. And there´s so much to tell there. There will be probably tons of ideas to roll around the writers table.
8- The punchlines
Such as: For a few dollars, a working man could get away and live like a king – legally or illegally.
9- The Network
HBO has given us Six Feet Under and The Sopranos. Probably two of the best top ten series from last decade and even two of the best series ever. And they keep delivering, with shows like Entourage, Bored to Death, Eastbound & Down, and, of course Boardwalk Empire.
10 – The esthetics and sensibility!
Sensibility now is Sex, drugs and rock & roll. Sensibility in the 20´s was sex, alcohol and jazz. And that just sounds a cool show to watch.
