Boardwalk Empire Ep. 1-4

Hey everyone I just finished episode four of Boardwalk Empire with the roommates and I know I told you I would get back to you as I watched more of the series. Impressions are good so far but I still am a bigger fan of Game of Thrones. Boardwalk Empire is a well put together show however.

HBO has a knack for making very complex plot lines and a lot of character interaction. After watching the first episode I was feeling rather lost and that I had missed a lot between characters since I was still learning who everyone was. I am getting the hang of the characters now and even though new characters are still being introduced since I know the old ones it is not as overwhelming.

It is interesting how they are integrating some historical things into the show to go along with their main premise of 1920's prohibition. The famous mobster Al Capone is integrated into the show and has a plot based around him and his interactions with the characters. It is interesting watching someone who you only know based on their reputation and the history books come alive as part of a fictional show. The KKK also had a part in this last episode and there is a sub plot that involves them somewhat, dont want to give too much away. Although this is the prohibition days the richer characters have no problem getting alcohol and seem to share it around with their guests often. 

The main plot of the show is based around Nucky Thompson a politician from Atlantic City in New Jersey. He is very wealthy and isn't afraid to do a few nefarious things to keep his name in good standing and keep his position of power. Having a bit of a short temper he doesn't treat those less fortunate very well most of the time. I don't want to explain much of the plot as to ruin it for those of you who haven't watched it. I shall leave you guys with this then look forward to more updates and I continue with season one and more blogs to come. Thank everyone for reading and I appreciate your comments and spending some time on my blog. Talk to you all soon.
