"Boardwalk Empire" Gets Inside Prohibition

Martin Scorsese teams up with Terrance Winter (of the Sopranos) to recreate Atlantic City, New Jersey during Prohibition.  Steve Buscemi is a racketeer.  Enough said. 

When I reflect on alcohol history in the United States I think of things before and after Prohibition.  Americans' perception of booze remains altered since that era.  I hope we're treated to a superbly brutal series. 

BTW - Episodes I can't wait to see: the celebration after the Volstead Act is implemented into law.
