While this show was being broadcast by HBO I didn't really pay any attention. I happened to see part of the last episode and immediately turned it off so that it wouldn't spoil the show for me and I waited for this boxset to come out because I was very impressed with what I saw. They did a great job making this series look like the 20s and I like how they very loosely based the main character on a real person so that they can make the show more interesting. There are plenty of characters based on well known gangsters which gives you insight into how the mobs were formed across the country. The other thing I like about this series is that because there are so many characters there are many ongoing stories going on in each season so it keeps you on your toes because it can take multiple episodes to progress along (and no it's not a slow progression either).
In the last decade HBO has been on one heck of a roll with shows like this one.
