Where are our episodes, iTunes?It's been a couple of weeks since I purchased/paid for a season 1 season pass and I've yet to be able to download/enjoy a single show episode.

One of the bestVery well done show and highly under rated. Lots of drama, conflict, and no shortage of skin at times either! If you really pay attention you'll even learn a thing or two. They really did their homework here. This is also the first mob style production that's included Cincinnati into the prohibition era, and put the link between Al Capone and Cincinnati. HBO struck gold here and I'm hooked!.Score: 5/5

Star is for the $47 price tag not the showI like HBO but I'm not paying $46.99 for one season of one show. There are too many other good shows. I give it a one star b/c of the price. I gave up cable so I saw a second season episode and loved it. Figured I'd get the first season off here and then I realize if I actually bought the shows off iTunes I'd lose out by a lot!! HBO needs to drop their prices and watch how many more people download their shows legally and make a move to rule the internet. Thats how to survive. Otherwise, doomed no matter how good the programming..Score: 1/5

Screw off HBO - too expensive and no current seasonsToo expensive at $4 per episode - which is not Apple's fault, the blame rests solely on HBO. Apple strived to keep ALL television shows priced at $1.99 per episode, but back in 2008 HBO demanded they be able to vary their pricing. HBO is the reason that EVERY (not just HBO content) TV show on iTunes is not just $1.99. Plus, HBO doesn't even offer current seasons! That's garbage and I'm taking my money elsewhere.

Az 1920-as években az alkoholt törvényen kívül helyezték Egyesült Államok-szerte, és ennek következtében a törvényen kívüliek lettek a királyok. A korszakot a Maffiózók Emmy-díjas forgatókönyvírója, Terence Winter által írt Boardwalk Empire - Gengszterkorzó idézi fel. A sorozatot – amelynek pilot epizódját az Oscar-díjas Martin Scorsese rendezte – Nelson Johnson dokumentarista könyve, a „Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times and Corruption of Atlantic City” ihlette. A történet Atlantic Cityben játszódik a szesztilalom hajnalán, és Enoch „Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi) életén keresztül elmeséli a szervezett bűnözés születését és felemelkedését a Boardwalk néven ismert csendes, tengerparti pihenőhelyen. A New Jersey déli partján fekvő üdülővárosban, „a világ játszótereként” emlegetett Atlantic Cityben gyakorlatilag nincsenek szabályok. Hatalmas szállodák sorakoznak Boardwalk nevű híres tengerparti sétányán, a szórakozóhelyek a Broadwayjel vetekednek. Néhány dollárból az ember úgy szórakozhat, mint egy király – legálisan vagy illegálisan. Atlantic City vitathatatlan ura a város pénzügyeit kezelő Enoch „Nucky” Thompson. Egy személyben megbecsült politikus és dörzsölt gengszter, akinek kapóra jön a szesztilalom bevezetése. Atlantic City ugyanis stratégiai elhelyezkedése miatt – pár percre fekszik Philadelphiától, néhány órára New Yorktól és kevesebb, mint egy nap autóútra Chicagótól – a szeszcsempészet központja lett. A könnyű pénz szagára pedig összegyűlnek Amerika gengsztervilágának nagyágyúi, akik mind az illegális alkoholterjesztésből akarnak meggazdagodni, az érdekellentétek pedig csakhamar bandaháborúkhoz vezetnek…

Dans les années 1920, à Atlantic City, le trésorier du comté Enoch « Nucky » Thompson, qui détient le véritable pouvoir sur la ville, décide de se lancer dans le trafic illégal d'alcool au moment où débute la Prohibition. Pour le seconder, il fait appel à James « Jimmy » Darmody, un jeune vétéran de la Première Guerre mondiale qu'il a pris sous son aile, ainsi qu'à son frère, le shérif du comté Elias Thompson. Nucky Thompson étend progressivement son réseau mais ne tarde pas à rencontrer la concurrence de trafiquants d'autres villes comme Chicago ou New York, où s'élèvent des gangsters tels que Lucky Luciano, Al Capone et Meyer Lansky, et d'attirer l'attention de l'agent du Gouvernement Nelson Van Alden. Parallèlement à ses activités illégales, Nucky a une vie privée tumultueuse et s'éprend de Margaret Schroeder, une jeune veuve.

Atlantic City in den 1920er Jahren: Es ist die Zeit der Prohibition. Der Handel mit Alkohol ist in den USA verboten. Dadurch steigt der Wert von Schnaps und Bier. Gleichzeitig wird dabei nicht nur die illegale Herstellung von Alkohol gerade für Kriminelle lukrativer, sondern auch der Transport der hochprozentigen Drinks zu ihren Abnehmern sehr viel risikoreicher. Der korrupte Politiker und Gangster Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson (Steve Buscemi), seines Zeichens Stadtkämmerer von Atlantic City, weiß dies und will seine Schäfchen ins Trockene bringen. Er ist der mächtigste Mann vor Ort. Nucky hat alles im Blick und kümmert sich auch um alles, während der Bürgermeister und sämtliche anderen Lokalpolitiker lediglich Marionetten in seiner meisterhaften Inszenierung sind. Da seine Stadt an einer strategisch günstigen Position an der Küste liegt, gibt es auch einige Begehrlichkeiten Fremder, vom Alkoholgeschäft zu profitieren. Gangs aus New York und Chicago wollen ebenfalls an der lukrativen illegalen Verbreitung von Bier und Schnaps teilhaben.

"אימפריית הפשע" היא יצירת מופת על לידתו של הפשע המאורגן באטלנטיק סיטי של שנות העשרים, ונכתבה ע"י המפיק והתסריטאי טרנס וינטר (זוכת גלובוס הזהב כסדרת הדרמה הטובה ביותר).

该剧根据作家Nelson Johnson的同名畅销小说改编。    1920年,联邦政府颁布禁酒令后,公开售卖酒类商品成为一种违法行为。在新泽西州的西南部的大西洋城没有任何法律。贯穿全城的道路的两侧,布满了各式旅馆、夜总会、娱乐中心、赌场、妓院、剧院,其规模堪与纽约的百老汇相提并论。Nucky(史蒂夫·布西密 Steve Buscemi 饰)是这里的老大。除了保护伞大西洋城警长Elias(谢伊·惠格姆 Shea Whigham 饰),一大帮靠黑帮势力发家的老板,还有一群宣誓效忠于他的打手。Nucky小心地谋划着自己在私酒生意链条上的位置,与各种黑帮组织为争夺黑市控制权展开了你死我活的斗争。

Boardwalk Empire da comienzo en Atlantic City en 1920, época de la Ley Seca. En vísperas de la Prohibición, el tesorero del Estado, Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi) busca una fórmula para sacarle partido. Destacado como el indiscutible “Jefe” de Atlantic City, Nucky tiene que lidiar con su doble vida como político y contrabandista. En una ciudad defi nida por políticos corruptos y donde el poder viciado domina, Nucky debe lidiar entre un incesante agente federal, sus ambiciones, y los gangsters, incluyendo a Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Luciano y Al Capone.
