I'm a HBO addict. I make no bones about it. Oz, The Sopranos, The Wire. Hell, even Sex and the City. I started watching Boardwalk Empire about a week ago and I'm hooked, as I knew I'd be. Not only is the script wonderful, the cast and producers are some of TV's most prolific players (including Steve Buscemi - the love of my life, Terrence Winter - writer and producer of The Sopranos, and Mark Wahlberg as producer, who seems to have his finger in ever TV pie).
What struck me straight away was the beautiful lighting, cinematography and costume. The style and attention to detail is impeccable. Set during the 1920's and 30's during the prohibition era, the men and women pay such close attention to not only their clothes but to their accessories. Bow ties and pocket squares on the gentlemen, and hats, gloves, furs and pins on the ladies.
Gorgeous hand beading, sumptuous feathers and fine furs galore. I could watch it for the glorious fashions alone.
Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) for his pocket carnations, checked coloured suits, and perfectly slicked hair.
Lucy Danziger (Paz La Huerta) for her sultry outfits of slinky silks, sexy stockings, all wrapped up in fur.
What do you guys think? Have you watched Boardwalk Empire?
And what can you recommend for my next TV show?!
