    They debuted a clip last night that looked really good. I'll search for it.

    That is brimming with authentic Scorseseness.

    Rename thread to HBO's Boardwalk Empire?

    Excellent behind the scenes feature. This, alongside Dexter, is my most anticipated show this fall.

    In traditional Scorsese fashion a
    few good head shots
    :)

    Thought it was real good IMO. Love see Buscemi in a leading role as well as Michael Pitt.

    Great Pilot. I'm gonna have to get used to Stephen Graham as Capone since he was SO awesome and memorable as Baby Face Nelson in Public Enemies.

    The pilot was ****ing awesome. It set-up an impressive amount of characters and plot points in just an hour and 15 minutes. Nobody does a montage of gruesome murders better than Scorsese. Next week should be just as good.

    I thought this was the best pilot i've seen in a while. Boardwalk empire's definitely got my attention.

    P.S. Paz de la Huerta is a fine specimen.

    7/10 pilot. Good, not fantastic. Kept me interested though.

    When Al Capone introduced himself I almost crapped my pants.

    She most certainly is. Her character seems kinda crazy, too! I like that.

    I just finished it. What a show. Truly the spiritual successor to The Sopranos and if the pilot is any indication it will be just as good.

    Good first ep. So the guy who took the fall, was the abusive husband right?

    I've always had a crush on Kelly MacDonald. :heart:

    I really enjoyed the episode. Like a ll pilots, it is a bit stiff and top heavy due to all the exposition, but if one person could fly through it--that is Martin Scorsese. A very compelling intro to a fascinating era--prohibition.

    I'd say Steve Buscemi's Nucky, at least at the start, is far more likable than Tony Soprano. Nucky has some reservations about wading into full-on gangster mode. But that may change as time goes on.

    Ok Steve Buscemi and Michael Pitt ****ing OWN their roles! What Jimmy said to Nucky at the end was great! This show WILL be better than the Sopranos ever was. Especially if they keep the story so linear and progressive. One thing I always hated bout Sopranos was they would always start a story out and then just never follow up on it.
    I dont care what anyone says I wanna know what happened to that damn russian in Pine Barrens!!!!
