Boardwalk Empire (2010-2014)
In many ways, this show parallels Peaky Blinders. Both are gritty, violent dramas with excellent scripts and stellar performances. Even more paralleled are their plot structures, which follow one man who tries to stay afloat as a kingpin among those who would overthrow him. The only difference is that Boardwalk Empire isn’t in the UK, but instead takes place in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Some shows grow weaker with each season, but Boardwalk Empire maintains its tenacity throughout. An excellent HBO drama to binge.
