First 'Boardwalk Empire' season 2 trailer

HBO is calling this one-minute preview of Boardwalk Empire a “teaser” but it looks like a full trailer to me. We have liquor, guns, the KKK and young Jimmy saying he’s expanding his business. Check it out:

For me, Boardwalk had a strong opening batch of episodes, then got slower and slower as the show — like the latter seasons of the Sopranos — became more of a character study than a propulsive drama. Will at least check out the Boardwalk S2 premiere, though…

    The whole show owes it to Steve Buscemi for his charismatic Nucky. If it wasn’t for him, there wouldn’t be such an interest in a series that does not so much more than movies already have.

        Who, Nucky?

        Bush has already gone down.

      Was it just me, or were all those scenes from last year?

      • j

        Just you, all of those were new scenes.

    My man Michael Shannon!!! Excited to see him as General Zod next summer!
    Great actor. And Kelly Macdonald deserves Emmy nom, maybe a win.
    Wish the trailer gave us a start date.

      In the ads shown during True Blood, it said “September.” My guess would be the weekend after Labor Day, or whatever weekend follows True Blood’s season finale.

    This show, like the rest of HBO, is AWFUL. Showtime and Starz is where its at now.

    RIP HBO.

    Showtime? HA! That network is running on fumes. The only decent shows on Showtime is Dexter, and Nurse Jackie, and those two shows currently are nowhere near as good as Boardwalk, True Blood, or Game of Thrones. Starz is a joke.

    For you it got slower? For me, the series got much better as it went on. I thought the first couple of episodes were all a bit much. As much as I love it, I do agree with the criticism that Buscemi has a hard time filling a leading man’s shoes.

  • Misspriss_1

    I really enjoyed the first season!! I never even thought that it went by slowly, but then, I liked Rubicon too…
    As for Buscemi as the lead, I am loving him!! And his shoes are so high end and well heeled, I think that they fit him just fine…

    Can’t wait! I love Boardwalk Empire. The first season was just finding its way around, so I think season 2 will be much better than season 1. It will be more confident. It’s always been my theory that the first season of any show is kind of lame, with the exception of Mad Men. The second season of any season is always better than the first. Can’t wait til September!

  • Yes

    Season 2 probably starts with Season 6 of Dexter..I believe it did last year, though I may have been late seeing this series for the first time.
