Boardwalk Empire

It's 1931 and we are deep into the Great Depression. The country is chomping at the bit to bring Prohibition to an end. The smart ones like Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) are squeezing every crooked cent out of their operations before having to hang 'em. Terence Winter and his writing team on "Boardwalk Empire" are doing the same thing, fitting in as much action and drama as they can into the final eight episode frame of the series.

In this trailer, threats are uttered, shots are fired and confrontations are held. Season 5 of "Boardwalk Empire" knows time is running out, so it jumps forward and backward in its antihero's crime career. The trailer provides brief looks at what appear to be flashbacks, tracing Nucky's childhood for key events that made him into the man he is today (stop me when this starts to sound like "The Sopranos" or "Mad Men"). 

Set to air the first of its eight-episode final season September 7 on HBO, "Boardwalk Empire" will find its final conclusion on October 26th.
