Boardwalk Empire is out on DVD, and I have a review over at the PJ Lifestyle blog. While I was away in November, first on the NR Cruise, and then visiting relatives in South Jersey, I found myself getting sucked into the recent HBO series, almost against my will. It seemed to be running in a continuous loop on the channel, which was available everywhere I was staying. And it didn’t hurt that I took plenty of trips to a far more clapped version of Atlantic City when I was kid, not to mention that in November, I was back in my old stomping grounds, an hour and a half away, while I was watching it. If you’ve seen the series yourself, or if you’re interested in the 1920s in general (or Hollywood’s often fanciful interpretation of the era at least), check out my review here.
