HBO is usually very vague with their teaser trailers, especially ones that pertain to the final season of a show, and the latest one for ‘Boardwalk Empire’ is no different. What makes ‘Boardwalk’ different from other shows on the air is that it’s a period piece, following characters who actually existed in real life. All you need to do is a Google search and you can find out what happened to Al Capone, or Lucky Luciano, or even Enoch Thompson. It’s also interesting that the show is jumping ahead to 1931, as Chalky White looks noticeably older with a grey beard (Steve Buscemi looks the same. I actually picture him being born a middle aged man). There are a lot of great characters who have a lot of loose ends to tie up in the final season, so it should a fast paced, action packed set of episodes.
