I was debating whether to watch Season 3 because my favorite characters got killed off in Season 2. But now, after finishing the last episode of Season 4, I think I liked Season 3 & 4 more than Season 1 & 2. The reason is that Richard Harrow becomes a more fully developed character and he truly comes into his own. In other words, he becomes a certified badass. There is a tremendous payoff in the final episodes of Season 4. The other interesting storyline is that weirdo Van Alden (the religious guy who whipped himself for lusting after Margaret) also develops into a three-dimensional character. And finally, Al Capone grows up - maturing from a low-level gangster playing grabass to one who exercises judgment and self control. When Capone tries to teach his deaf son how to stand up to bullies it is heartbreaking. I watch a lot of gangster films and there has never been a gangster like Nucky Thompson in popular fiction. He is a frail-looking geek who came to power through the exercise of social intelligence, political scheming and cunning. It is fascinating to watch a criminal who is highly intelligent, intuitive and political. After I watched the final episode of Season 4, I found myself thinking about the character of Richard Harrow for several days. It affected me. It's fiction and they're not real people and yet you somehow want them to be happy. I guess that's a testament to the powerful writing behind these two seasons.

I have fallen in love with this series... It was so well done with following each character through these hard and different way of life during that era. I thought the director did so well to let the audience get to know each character., where they fit dynamically in the story as it rolls on... Season 1 it did fantastic.... got a little choppy in Season 2, but they left you with brilliant "cliff hanger" at the end of Season 2 !!!! I was eager to watch Season 3. Saddly enough the choppy, quickly thrown together scenes., that left out huge parts of characters lives., etc., had worsened. It was like they were just trying to end the series., and quickly... But Season 1 was and two, were worth it... (:

Boardwalk empire is the best show out right now. It's a tapestry of fascinating scenes, characters, and places that are real enough to make you believe that a version of these events happened. Steve Buscemi gives a wonderfully restrained performance in a truly ensemble show. Jack Huston as Richard Harrow deserves to win all the awards. Best watched 3 at a time to make you get into the 20's swing of things. And I can't leave out Michael Williams as Chalky White... He plays Chalky with such a deep undercurrent of anger and makes you understand what it feels like to be an outsider wherever you go. Can't wait for season 4 to be available on Amazon Instant. Every subplot pays off.

Knowing the true stories behind some of the events in this series, (particularly the Capone elements,) has made me a bit disappointed in the direction this series has gone. I think I'd like it more if I didn't know how much more interesting the real stories are. I guess I'm just confused as to why they feel they need to tinker with history.

That being said, it's fairly interesting and entertaining. I sort of lost interest in a lot of the characters this season, though. (However, I didn't watch all the way to the end. Got bored.)

One of the best online shows in history of "TV". If you enjoy gangster stories, this is up there with the Goodfellas, The Departed, Scarface and The GodFather. It is intellectually stimulating with extremely well written dialogue, well developed character personalities, costuming is authentic and "rum running" is a great backdrop that drives each episode.

As always Boardwalk Empire delivers. I am a huge fan, if you love the 1920's, organized crime, and memorable characters you will love this series.

Born and raised in the area I have a great interest in the history of this ever changing city. Fast moving, ever changing characters, and the reproduction of the boardwalk scenery are wonderful. My wife especially enjoys the costumes with the reproduction of wardrobe from that era down to the extra embroidery on dresses and outer ware. Thoroughly entertaining for us; not for everyone's taste due to the violence and language.
