Boardwalk Empire was one of the stand out TV shows of the last year – some say the stand out show – so it’s hardly surprising HBO are backing it to the hills, already beginning the hype for season two by releasing a teaser trailer onto the interwebs and my god has it done it’s job! I can’t wait for the fall!
For those of you who haven’t gotten into the show or don’t like the sounds of it all that much, I heartily recommend giving it a try. For anyone who likes Crime or even gangster TV shows, this is very definitely for you. Here’s a quick plot summary to get you started (via Wikipedia):
Boardwalk Empire is a period drama focusing on Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (based on the historical Enoch L. Johnson), a political figure who rose to prominence and controlled Atlantic City, New Jersey during the Prohibition period of the 1920s and 1930s. Nucky interacts with several historical figures in both his personal and political life, including mobsters, politicians, government agents, and the common folk who look up to him. The federal government also takes an interest in the bootlegging and other illegal activities in the area, sending agents to investigate possible mob connections but also looking at Nucky’s lifestyle – expensive and lavish for a county political figure.
For those of you who were fans for the first season, whilst there’s no release date yet set on the season 1 box set, you can pre-order it now for just $41.99!
Anyway, enough trying to convert people to awesome shows, here’s the teaser:
