On The Boardwalk

First rule of politics kiddo. Never let the truth get in the way of a good story - Enoch "Nucky" Thompson

I've been meaning to do a post on Boardwalk Empire ever since I started watching it. If you haven't seen the series yet, be sure to watch. It's absolutely brilliant - if only for the 1920s fashion, or to see Michael Shannon playing the twisted and zealous Agent Van Alden. Much like Mad Men, no details are missed in the production of the sets and the costumes. Set during the 1920's at the peak of the Prohibition era, the attention to detail and aesthetics is spot on and captures the spirit of the era; the changing role of women, the economic boom, and the Jazz Age. And everyone wears amazing hats!
