If you've seen "Boardwalk Empire" but don't yet own the blu-ray, then this bundle of Seasons 1 & 2 is perfect. If you've never seen the show, I'd encourage you to give it a chance. Everything about this series is spectacular - the acting, the camera work, the production design, etc. This is one of the best scripted shows currently on television, and the story is executed in near-perfect fashion thanks to the brilliant direction. The show is best when viewed quickly over a short period of time, because you really get immersed in the world and follow the intricacies of the story - and blu-ray is the best way to do that.

In terms of the blu-ray quality, HBO has always been great about providing viewers with the best video/audio experience. There are also a lot of special features on the discs, including featurettes and character dossiers. The audio commentary tracks are quite interesting to listen to, the creators of the show (including directors, actors, etc) give their perspective on the story/characters and share anecdotes from the production. The packaging is also quite nice - it's a fold-out digipak type case. The DVD discs and Digital Copy code comes in a separate cardboard holder. And everything comes inside a thick outer slip box.

* As I write this, this bundle is the Blu-Ray Deal of the Week for $55.99 - that's only $28 per season, which is a decent price for these sets. The Season 3 blu-ray has also just been released, so this is the perfect time to catch up if you've never seen the show.

Coming off the end of the Sopranos I was excited to see Steve Buscemi pop up in another series. I am guilty of having high Sopranos expectations and this is a much different series. This is very detailed, from scenery, advertising and language. This is a mob like series but also a sort of time machine to the 1920's. The characters are very well done, creating a great backbone for the show. Nucky Thompson is obviously the star but Capone, Chucky White and even the guy with the worst luck in the world Nelson really make this show work. Be patient with the show and you will be happy you did. Look forward to hopefully some more seasons to come.

This is one of my biggest acquisitions because i bought it in a very low price and the series is so captive that i couldn't stop watching it until finish the second season. Now I must buy the third one to continue the story.
