Certainly one of the most admired shows on the 2010 television schedule, HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" boasted the year's most impressive pedigree with Martin Scorsese taking a production credit and even directing the pilot episode (for which he won an Emmy). This brain child of Terrence Winter, a primary creative force and writer for "The Sopranos," adapted the Nelson Johnson non-fiction work chronicling the sordid history of Atlantic City into a masterful blend of fact and fantasy. Embraced by mainstream critics and viewers alike, "Boardwalk Empire" picked up a Golden Globe for Best Dramatic Program and acting honors for lead Steve Buscemi at both the Globes and the SAG awards for its debut season. And yet, if I'm being completely honest, while I issued my highest recommendation for the artistry of Season One--it always connected more with my intellectual side, but never quite my heart. Season Two, however, became my passion in 2011. With richer characterizations, plot developments rivaling any Greek tragedy, and a stunning season capper--"Boardwalk Empire," in its second season, was as thrilling and riveting as any show on TV.

Taking the relationships that were developed in Season One, "Boardwalk Empire" raised the stakes for just about everyone in these twelve episodes. I won't discuss many specifics or reveal any surprises, but the show struck gold when it turned its leads Steve Buscemi (as Atlantic City politico Nucky Thompson) and Michael Pitt (as his surrogate son and primary enforcer) from a mentor/student bond to outright rivals. Most of the episodes capitalize on this split, as major characters are forced to align themselves on one side or the other.

So, I pre-ordered this, with the rest of my TV, months ago. No clue that this was going to be as big a set as this was. The series and season are good, they're excellent, but I'll let others describe those. Me? I'm going to focus on the actual product here instead.

This box comes with 3 Blu-Ray discs, packaged by themselves. At the price paid for it, you'd think that would be all you get, considering it's a pretty standard price. HBO goes the extra mile though, by far. This set ALSO comes with (separately packaged) 2 double sided DVD's with all 12 episodes.. But wait, THERE'S MORE!!! HBO also throws in one code that allows you to download ALL episodes, PLUS 3 special features, ALL in HD off of iTunes.

I've got, in my collection, probably 30, 40 television shows, most with multiple seasons. NONE of them have given out this much for this little. I think the closest I've seen was Chuck and Grimm with Ultraviolet digital copies (which aren't horrible, but they're not iTunes), nothing at all with the amount of 'extra' release content we have here.

EXCELLENT job, HBO. Keep up the great work!!!

The second season (12 episodes) of Boardwalk Empire remind us all that great writing, great plots and a great cast can make for television drama that we cannot get enough of. In this case, Season 2 of Boardwalk Empire meets and exceeds every expectation that I would have after watching the first season. Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) now fights for control of Atlantic City and the liquor empire. The cast of characters he has to deal with from Chalky White, to Leo Rothstein, to corrupt senators, judges, lawyers, family (his brother, Eli, to a Treasury Agent (Van Aulden) and acquaintances, it will be a huge time for Nucky Thompson and a time of danger as Prohibition ruled the nation while a nation of thirsty drinkers continue to fuel the wars over alcohol.

Every episode is outstanding. I won't "spoil" who dies in Season 2. The reality is that a LOT of people die in Season 2 because it had to happen. The show's central theme continues to be the fact that prohibition made better mobsters than ever before and it meant that money bought anything and everything so that the alcohol would flow despite the laws against it in the early 1920s.

Season 2 ends with a wild finish. Losing a character or two from Season 2 will make for an intersting third season (and hopefully further seasons after that!), but with this cast, the writing and the plot(s) I know the series is going the right direction. What I don't understand is why this show was not nomianted for more Emmys as the cast was great. That is truly an injustice to this series.
