While Boardwalk Empire tends to draw in less fanfare than other HBO greats such as Game of Thrones and True Blood, it’s certainly more of a slow burner. It didn’t necessarily immediately draw in huge crowds, but has really worked itself up to phenomenal levels of coverage and award nominations. And this is all well deserved. The prohibition era series portrays mob life both throughout the city as well as among a family, Boardwalk Empire feels historically significant.
Unfortunately for Netflix subscribers, and much like all other HBO series, Boardwalk Empire is not on Netflix instant stream. It is, however available for people to rent through Netflix’s DVD service.
