This series is about the mobsters who rule Prohibition-era Atlantic City, New Jersey, led by a geeky looking guy named Nucky Thompson. In Season 1, Nucky helps get women the vote so they can vote in the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, a ban on alcohol. Nucky already has lined up a route for the import of alcohol from Canada that will make them rich. Although the Volstead Act gives the Dept of Justice the power to arrest anyone violating this act, Nucky's brother Eli is the sheriff of Atlantic City and never enforces it. What I found most interesting was the way he manipulated everything so perfectly. He was always thinking years ahead. I also liked that he fell for an Irish woman with two adorable kids. And he treated them well which kind of makes you want him to win. Not your typical mobster.

Could've done with less nudity but overall I enjoyed it. Cannot wait to watch season 2.
