Boardwalk Empire is an American Crime-Drama TV series created by Terence Winter for HBO. Boardwalk Empire needs no introduction and neither does the deal. It encompasses a generation in which the political landscape is very similar to today, but is tied with violence, sexism and corruption, and in its midst is a thriving business moonshine. A new standard is set with storytelling, cinematography, elaborate sets on the shores of Brooklyn, chosen carefully tailored clothing and costumes that match the style of opulent life of the characters. Occasional inserts of magazines, books, manuals; Everything in its original form, which not only gives originality (to show) for the era being represented but also takes you back in time in the deeply woven lives of the characters as Mrs. Schroeder, Nucky, Eli, Nelson and my Mr. Kessler personal favorite character.
An avalanche of real people like Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Licianus, Al Capone, Jimmy Darmody?, Johnny Torrio, senators, congressmen, vice president and make full show and give it a political dimension, as well as a multitude. Much of what is in Boardwalk Empire is based on true events and a cursory search in Wikipedia in some of the celebrities validates it. This is what makes this brilliant show dark as its setting – musical theme with clouds over the Atlantic city. One of the least spoken parts of the program are perhaps the melodious songs that producers/writers have decided for the background score. The songs fill the air with melancholy as much of the show and leaves us anxiously awaiting the next episode.
Boardwalk Empire also makes pícaras reviews how the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and how political and economic interests of powerful often manipulate naive, well-meaning fools. Even today, soft drugs like marijuana are illegal, while the much more addictive and socially harmful products (such as snuff and alcohol) are legal. Marijuanna has remained illegal because the powerful lobbies of alcohol and snuff do not want the competition to reduce their profits. But foolish people still believe that politicians outlawing soft drugs like this are doing to “protect” society.
