New This Week (9/25/14)

Boardwalk Empire : The Complete Fourth Season (TV-MA)
Atlantic City, February 1924: Picking up 8 months after the events of Season 3, Nucky Thompson is laying low at the end of the Boardwalk after barely surviving an overthrow by gangster Gyp Rosetti. But the calm will be short-lived, as Nucky faces new challenges, including a clash with a violent Harlem power broker, a battle with his brother Eli over Eli college-age son, and the irresistible lure of lucrative--and perilous--opportunities in Florida.

Godzilla (PG-13)
This spectacular adventure pits Godzilla, the world's most famous monster, against malevolent creatures that, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. 

The Roosevelts : An Intimate History (NR)
Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt are three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. This seven-part, 14 hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage, and the conquest of fear.
