DH and I were thinking it could fill the void left by True Blood. I love Steve Buschemi and it looks like it could be interesting. Anyone considering it?

finally watched it last night. I think it will take me a few episodes to get into it as well, but I do love the attention to period details-the hats/clothing etc and I thought Buscemi's mistress was pretty funny (in a trashy kind of way) & I like the actor portraying Al Capone (He was Tommy from Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels) .... Anyone know the history behind the baby incubators on the boardwalk?
|Another quirky attraction was the “Infant Incubator Exhibit” across from the Million Dollar Pier. In the early 20th century, incubators for premature babies were a technological novelty–but hospitals needed funds to purchase them, and that required public support for the idea. To raise interest, incubators were displayed to the public with the tiny preemies still inside. “Baby Hatcheries” were found at state fairs,amusement parks like Coney Island, and of course Atlantic City. Admission was charged to view the tiny human babies in incubators as they were cared for by nurses.|
OK, so I tried last night. I was on the phone, and came accross it and watched for a couple of minutes while talking, it was the scene where a woman is in a kitchen, children sitting around the table, shes cutting bread. A man is in a doorway talking to her and he begins to beat her. The little girl (About 2?) starts to cry, and I.CANT.DO.IT. That crap makes me want to puke. I hated Deadwood because of the vial treatment of women.
I get it. Its period adaptation. Doesnt mean I can stomach watching it.
