We bloody love a bit of Steve Buscemi here at THN, so we’re excited to announce with HBO Home Entertainment UK that BOARDWALK EMPIRESM THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON is now available to own and watch instantly through blinkbox and NOOK Video™! This is the first new-release title on NOOK Video since the launch of the HBO catalogue on 10 December, making blinkbox and NOOK the only places in the UK for HBO fans to buy and own titles months ahead of the DVD and Blu-ray release later this year. And now, for the full official press release:
Following its Sky Atlantic broadcast, prepare yourself for even more back-stabbing criminality and debauched scheming in this critically acclaimed action-packed and explosive drama series from esteemed writer Terence Winter (The Sopranos®). Nominated for two Golden Globes this year for best Original TV Series (Drama) and Best Actor, the series follows the life and time of “Nucky” (Steve Buscemi) in the early 1920’s.
Winner of twelve Emmy® awards, the third season of the hit HBO drama series begins months after the shocking events of Season 2 on New Year’s Eve. With the Roaring 20’s about to really begin, the economy is booming but alcohol has become scarce, competition is fierce and gangster violence is heating up. Amidst this backdrop, Nucky, the undisputed czar of Prohibition-era Atlantic City, is battling with his sham of a marriage to Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) after she signed away his highway windfall to the church. He also faces new competition in the person of Gyp Rosetti (Bobby Cannavale), who builds a new strategic bulkhead between New York and Atlantic City in an effort to siphon off Nucky’s alcohol business. Witness the best and worst in Nucky, who proves his brutal mettle in a series of violent encounters.
