Solid actors who all cut their teeth on film and theater. It already seems very layered, and will deal with the various levels of the organizations. That's more of my cup of tea. The kind of stuff people like Scorsese or Michael Mann deal with in their work.
danke cap-a, a more rational response
i came across a little too aggressive so for that i apologise. i do not hate on dexter, but i was certainly disappointed in the way the narrative was handled mid way through the first season. his sexual relationship with the single mother i didn't care for and i found the ice truck killer pretty uninteresting
it is safe to say that boardwalk empire will have truly great characters, afterall it's written by terrence winter who wrote on sopranos
