Board­walk Em­pire

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 2.30pm, Show­case Steve Buscemi ( The So­pra­nos, Reser­voir Dogs) has one of those faces that’s oh so fa­mil­iar on Amer­i­can tele­vi­sion. In this se­ries set in the Pro­hi­bi­tion era, he plays Enoch ‘‘ Nucky’’ Thomp­son, the king of At­lantic City, a cross be­tween politi­cian and gang­ster, based on the book about real-life crim­i­nal Enoch L. John­son. Martin Scors­ese di­rected the pilot with a bud­get of $US18 mil­lion in 2010. A for­tune, one might say, but it ap­pears to have paid off: the se­ries has won 12 Emmy Awards. Catch up here with the first two episodes — New York Sour and Res­ig­na­tion — of sea­son four, which has just gone to air in the US.
