Do you watch BOARDWALK EMPIRE, I desperately want to talk about that show with someone.

Oh gosh - I've avoided it. I've been told it wouldn't be my cup of tea. But summer rerun season is on, so who knows what I'll end up watching!

Well, I HAD to watch - Scorsese is an exec producer and I love him. I'm not sure if you'd like it. It's good, but sometimes gets lost in itself, it may sweep the Emmy's. Who knows?
