    "Boardwalk Empire"

    It starts on the 19th (on HBO) and I'm really excited to see it. I found an extended trailer for it while doing a search on Facebook. It looks really good.

    I also am definitely looking forward to this show, especially considering Scorsese directed the pilot, and Steve Buscemi proved to be quite the interesting gangster in The Sopranos.

    I saw the "making of" on HBO this weekend. I'm really excited for it as well. Looks like the making of another home run for HBO.

    It could be the new must watch on Sundays. From the previews it looks like lots of violence and sex which are the two key elements to any successful HBO show.

    Has anyone read the book it's based on?

    What time is it on? It will probably conflict with my favorite show "Mad Men"

    I think it'll be on at 9 taking over for True Blood, but HBO replays everything a million times.

    I, too, am looking forward to this show.

    I'm really excited about this show.

    Hopefully it fills the void that has been left since Sopranos went off the air.

    Since that ended, there's been at least 5 TV series that are better than the Sopranos ever was.

    And so does AMC. I always just DVR my programs so I can watch them when I want anyway.

    Re: "Boardwalk Empire"

    Seems somewhat interesting but I have doubts it will deliver. I'm more interested in visiting the set in Greenpoint, anyone know if they're going to open it to the public?

    Re: "Boardwalk Empire"

    Has the making of being one of the best shows to ever grace HBO.

    Oh really? Name them, please. Because there really hasn't been.

    Sopranos is one of the greatest shows of all-time and I'm not the only one who thinks that.

    The Wire and Breaking Bad are great, but NOT better than the Sopranos

    Re: "Boardwalk Empire"

    "Breaking Bad" is like The Sopranos of meth in a roundabout way. I love it...but I agree there isn't a show yet that has been better than "The Sopranos". I even watch the reruns on A&E sometimes.

    Anyway, only one more week until "Boardwalk Empire" starts.

    I can name 4: The Wire, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and The Shield.

    All superior to The Sopranos after Livia and BP died.

    I tried liking Mad Men, but that show is disgustingly boring

    My fav show of all time. I rented that entire series based on your raving about it Greg and am about to do the same for Mad Men. Hope I like Mad Men as much as The Wire even though I know they are entirely different.

    Same here. I cannot, for the life of me, get into it. Totally boring.

    Never watched The Shield. But I think Breaking Bad and The Wire are certainly on par with Sopranos.

    I generally get rid of HBO after True Blood, but may have to keep it for Boardwalk Empire. I also have to get Showtime for Dexter. Don't think the wife will appreciate the $150 cable bill.

    I don't think that's been a fair description of the show since the first season.

    7 seasons long, and not one bad episode. Taking that into consideration, I think it's one of the best shows ever.
