Boardwalk Empire has always been a series about enterprise and chance, about men and women, but mostly men, and the careers that lead them on certain paths. Tonight, HBO premiered the fifth and final season of the acclaimed drama, and just a few minutes into the first episode of the season, the show put together an iconic and historically-tied scene that might just be the most mentally disturbing thing I’ve ever witnessed on television.

HBO is usually extremely careful about what marketing information it lets out into the universe, but sometimes the subscription cable network has a little trouble reining in its creative talent.

But will that have anything to do with the music maker's former show?

Some TV trends are better than others. We don’t mind what seems to be the emerging trend of taking movie ideas and turning them into TV pilots. On Monday, HBO and Paramount Television began working on a deal to bring Martin Scorsese’s 2010 film Shutter Island to the small screen. The proposed TV series would be a prequel of sorts to the film.
