Just starting watching a new series from HBO today – with a great pilot from Atlantic City in the 1920s and Prohibition. 18 Emmy nominations, directed by Martin Scorsese, great music and visuals, nice characters. Steve Buscemi is doing a great job, same with Al Capone and Lucky Luciano. Off to a promising start.
Just started a new dvd-set last night, the emmy award winning television mini-series from 2008; “John Adams”. Very promising start with street rebellions in Boston and forces of freedom, justice and liberty brewing towards the British colonial rule.
Episode 1: Rising tensions in Boston forces the independent-minded lawyer John Adams to take a political stand between the freedom of the people and the british rule and crown.
