Yes, It definately looks like a quality production. HBO provides the kind of quality programming that used to be the stock in trade of the Hollywood movie making studios. I rarely find a movie these days that measures up to the scripts of shows like these. A lot of the quality writers seem to be working in TV. It's quite a shift.

Did not think the program lived up to its expectations....thought it was weak eventhough the acting etc was good. Nothing new just another twist on the prohibition era that has been played a hundred times on screen before. Sorry but not what I expected for $50 million.....which incidently was spent primarly on the boardwalk set.

I do hope this series will live up to expectations. I thought the opening episode was nothing special. Yes, the sets and costumes were great and added to the period-piece atmosphere, but the script was mundane.

One reviewer posted last week that the opening was indeed the weakest episode and the series improves. Time will tell.

Yeah I thought the script was a tad week. I didn't think the acting was the greatest. Overall I did like the show though and think that there is potential for this to be a good one. I felt some of the scenes stole from the "Goodfellas" style and obviously so.
