When I caught the teaser of Boardwalk Empire at HBO, I told myself that I'll definitely watch that. What intrigued me was the male lead, Steve Buscemi. I've seen him mostly on comedy flicks and I wanted to see if he would be able to play the part. I hadn't known then he had played a role in The Sopranos. Talk about living under a rock! Ha ha!
And then there's the setting. It was set in the roarin' 1920's - an era which I loved. I liked the dresses and the T-strap shoes, hats and headpieces.. glamorous! So one Saturday morning, I settled myself in front of the computer and watch the first season of Boardwalk Empire :)
There were also quite a few "body exposures" especially that of Paz de la Huerta. But it's not a shocker for me. A few of Bill and Sookie's sex scenes on True Blood prepared me for that. Having said that, now the boys are suddenly curious about the series. Ha ha ha!
The costumes are outstanding of course so now I want to play dress up with the Boardwalk Empire wardrobe room. Hi hi hi!
Kelan ba ang season 2?! I can't wait!
HBO has been coming up with their original series that are really, really good but I'm embarassed to say I haven't been able to see them all. I want to watch first The Sopranos and Curb Your Enthusiasm so I'll ask hubby to get me some of copies of those so I could at least have something to get addicted to while waiting for the new seasons of True Blood and Boardwalk Empire :)
