Noel Murray has a long and fascinating interview with Terence Winter, the creator of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, in The A.V. Club. Those with an interest in political economy, ethnopolitical conflict, and the history of the 1920s will find the series to be of particular interest. It does suffer from the occasional anachronism, but that’s part of the fun. The third season begins in mid-September, and my main hope is that Gillian Darmody stays on the show for the duration.
