TV Geek Out 171: Boardwalk Empire Premiere

What kind of series do you get when the masterminds are the number two man on The Sopranos, the executive producer of Entourage, and the greatest living American filmmaker? Why Boardwalk Empire, of course! It's an ambitious historical gangster story about the Prohibition era with a remarkably strong cast fronted by Steve Buscemi as a New Jersey politico on the take (and, yes, that is redundant). Listen in as TV geeks Dana, Perry, and Heather tackle the debut episode, offer up a history lesson on anti-Semitism, and try to untangle plot threads that are already thoroughly knotted in just 75 minutes of show. Check it all out here.
