Default Boardwalk Empire.

I just watched the first two episodes of this on Sky Atlantic, and finally there seems to be a worthy succesor to the Sopranos. Steve Buscemi is finally given the chance at a leading role, and is excellent. Anyone else watching it?

Saw the end of it after swim training - it was outstanding, and Buscemi is excellent in the leading role - I was a bit suspicious to be honest, although I'm pleasently surprised. Although as soon as that lad put the gramaphone on, I knew what was going to happen. Good ending.

It's right up there with Nicole Kidman's effort. And with a name like Schroeder in post war America, she really doesn't stand a chance.

I like it, but I am also at the moment watching the sopranos box set. On to season 5 atm, and I don't think that Boardwalk empire is half as good as the sopranos. It is still excellent and better than 99% of anything else out there, but it is definatly not as good as the sopranos. It could also pick up the pace, I am on the 3rd episode and things have been very slow.
