BOARD­WALK EM­PIRE

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

Show­case, Sun­day, 7.30pm ★★★★ All it took for some crit­ics to laud Board­walk Em­pire was to read Os­car-win­ning di­rec­tor Martin Scors­ese was one of its creative forces. Se­ries one was solid, but the sea­son two opener sug­gests Board­walk may yet live up to its hype. It’s 1921 and Nucky Thomp­son (Steve Buscemi) is a power­bro­ker grap­pling with law en­force­ment and Pro­hi­bi­tion. Nucky is hand­cuffed when he is the tar­get of an elec­tion fraud in­ves­ti­ga­tion. And his du­plic­ity is on dis­play when he re­acts to Chalky be­ing threat­ened by a bloody KKK at­tack. Is Nucky to be be­lieved when he prom­ises the hooded cowards will be brought to jus­tice?
