HBO is calling this one-minute preview of Boardwalk Empire a “teaser” but it looks like a full trailer to me. We have liquor, guns, the KKK and young Jimmy saying he’s expanding his business. Check it out:

For me, Boardwalk had a strong opening batch of episodes, then got slower and slower as the show — like the latter seasons of the Sopranos — became more of a character study than a propulsive drama. Will at least check out the Boardwalk S2 premiere, though…
