Boardwalk Empire is a period drama focusing on Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (based on the historical Enoch L. Johnson), a political figure who rose to prominence and controlled Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the Prohibition period of the 1920s and 1930s. Nucky acts with historical characters in both his personal and political life, including mobsters, politicians, government agents, and the common folk who look up to him. The federal government also takes an interest in the bootlegging and other illegal activities in the area, sending agents to investigate possible mob connections but also looking at Nucky's lifestyle—expensive and lavish for a county political figure. The final season jumps ahead seven years, to 1931, as Prohibition nears its end.

I have just embarked on the 'Boardwalk Empire' journey ( Still in Season1) having recently twice watched 'The Sopranos' throughout. It is a tribute to the acting ability of the late James Gandolfini and his fellow cast members that I am still in my mind comparing the BE characters - and music - slightly less favourably. However, I am anticipating a change of heart on the basis that Martin Scorsese makes few mistakes
