Boardwalk Empire is getting so good, you guys. Last night’s episode made me wonder once again what we, the TV-watching public, did to get to watch a fucking Martin Scorcese movie written by Terrence Winter (the same guy who wrote much of The Sopranos) every week. (SPOILERS, OBVI.) More

With the new show Made In Jersey premiering tonight, why not point your face at a television and absorb some true facts about the Dirty Jerz? Who has time for books or the internet anymore? More
Modern Family, take note: This is how you have a cute cast moment at the SAG Awards. Michael Pitt cracks a joke, only for his on-screen son Brady Noon to tease him for being unprofessional. More

We’ve uncovered a weird phenomenon in movies and TV: You cast two actors to play a parent and child, and yet they’re only a few years apart! Jack from Will & Grace (via TV Tropes) sums it up best: “This is just like The OC, except without twenty-five-year-old teenagers and thirty-five-year-old parents.” More
Lingerie brand Agent Provocateur has given Paz de la Huerta the role of a lifetime in this new ad: they’ve allowed to to “accidentally” slip out of her clothing over and over again. Which is, of course, what the Boardwalk Empire star is best at. More
This is advertising we can get behind — especially since it’s in our city!

Yesterday, Vulture premiered the first poster for the new season of prohibition drama Boardwalk Empire.

This is Vincent Piazza from Boardwalk Empire — you know, that show you spent eight hours of your life trying so hard to like, until finally you realized, “You know what? I have free will and, frankly, this series is boring so I’m not going to watch it. I’m just going to shut it off and read a book.
