Sky Atlantic Launches – Tonight

Tonight is the night you’ve been waiting for… so it can be over and better shows can be launched. Sky Atlantic, the new Channel from Sky, launches tonight with Boardwalk Empire leading the pack. It’s fair to say we weren’t blown away by Buscemi knocking about in the prohibition era but let’s take a look at a hastily pasted in list of shows that will be on the channel:

Big Love
Blue Bloods
Boardwalk Empire
Bored To Death
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Entourage
How to Make it in America
Mad Men
Six Feet Under
The Sopranos
Treme
Weeds

Among that list are four great dramas, four original comedies, one OK drama and three shows I haven’t seen. That is pretty good going and with access to more quality American dramas sure Sky Atlantic beats watching Bid TV.

If however you don’t have Sky, it’s back to buying boxsets or searching for torrents.
