    Boardwalk Empire is the latest show for HBO to premiere and to be honest, it just did not do it for me. There were definitely sparks of brilliance at times, but the key word there is sparks. The show was never consistently good, even the action, climatic scenes had points where the viewer was asking themselves, "Why show this?" Boardwalk Empire is an all too familiar show about it, it is like Mad Men, with violence thrown in. The problem though? Steve Buscemi is not Jon Hamm, and writer Terence Winter is not Matt Weiner. I am on the fence about watching this show again. While there were definitely some parts I liked, for a pilot that cost 19 million to make, it did not do a good job of sucking me in.
