Product Description

One of HBO’s signature shows, this one-hour drama chronicles the life and times of Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Golden Globe winner Steve Buscemi), Atlantic City’s undisputed czar at a time when Prohibition proved to be a major catalyst in the rise of organized crime in America. Picking up 16 months after Season 2 ended, Season 3 begins on New Year’s Eve 1922-23. The Roaring ‘20s are about to start; though the economy is booming, alcohol has become scarce, competition is fierce, and gangster violence is heating up. Amidst this backdrop, Nucky, whose marriage to Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) has become a sham after she signed away his highway windfall to the church, faces new competition in the person of Gyp Rosetti (new cast member Bobby Cannavale), who builds a new strategic bulkhead between New York and Atlantic City in an effort to siphon off Nucky’s alcohol business. The conflict brings out the best and worst in Nucky, who proves his brutal mettle in a series of violent encounters – including a climatic facedown with Gyp in the Season 3 finale. New and familiar faces also undergo compelling metamorphoses as the 12 new episodes of Boardwalk Empire unfold.

Amazon.com

After the shocking events that concluded season two, HBO's handsome and brooding Boardwalk Empire ushers in 1924 with the introduction of Bobby Cannavale's sadistic, easily offended gangster Giuseppe "Gyp" Rosetti. Though increasingly ruthless Atlantic City impresario Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) has streamlined his bootlegging operations, Gyp's rebuffed attempts to muscle in on the action leads to all-out war when he takes over the Taber Heights route to New York. Despite the complications, the money continues to roll in, though Nucky would rather live in squalor with his showgirl mistress, Billie (Meg Steedle). His wife, Margaret (Kelly Macdonald), supports him in public, but prefers personal time with his assistant, Slater (Charlie Cox), while Nucky's brother, Eli (Shea Whigham), returns from prison gaunt and desperate, leading him to move bottles of hooch for cackling, bowler-sporting Mickey (Paul Sparks).

With the death of his parents, young Tommy Darmody now lives with his opportunistic grandmother, Gillian (Gretchen Mol), who runs a gentleman's club, where Richard Harrow (Jack Huston) looks after him when he isn't putting his sharpshooting skills to use--thanks to Huston's fine work, Harrow remains surprisingly sympathetic for a man who claims to have killed 63 people (the same could be said of Stephen Graham's Al Capone, who dotes on his son). As ever, Boardwalk Empire is bursting with even more plot, but not everything works, like the Chicago misadventures of Michael Shannon's former Fed Van Alden, who segues from salesman to alcohol distiller. Shannon holds up his end of the bargain, including a spectacular office freak-out, but his storyline remains stranded from the central activity for too long, though he does finally connect with Capone toward the end, while the massacre of the finale sorts out the not-completely-bad guys from the totally irredeemable ones. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

4.0 out of 5 stars Turf Wars December 3, 2012
Format:DVD
This season of Boardwalk - in which Jimmy's warning comes back to haunt him - recounts a very bad year for Nucky while also developing the organized crime mythology of the time.

After Margaret's stunt at the end of Season 2, the Thompson's marriage goes on the rocks, with both eventually guilty of extramarital affairs, Nucky indulging first and most blatantly and Margaret's situation undoubtedly complicated by her daughter's polio diagnosis adding another hurdle to her easily leaving Nucky. That is soon the least of Nucky's problems, however, with deranged Gyp Rosetti - played with scenery chewing relish by Bobby Cannavale - making a play for AC and sending Nucky into a battle for not only his power, but his life.

The series begins the process of developing historical figures like Meyer Lansky, Al Capone (Stephen Graham in a performance that has some fans making noises about wanting him to headline a series about Capone's Eliot Ness years after Boardwalk is over) and Charles Luciano (not so lucky yet) into the legendary figures that many people have at least a passing knowledge of. It also does equally well with it's fictional characters, notably Michael Kenneth Williams' winning Chalky White and Gretchen Mol's increasingly disturbing Gillian Darmody. Van Alden takes a bit of a backburner, but finds himself in the most deliciously ironic situation of the entire cast when he is around. The heart of the series, however, is undoubtedly Jack Huston's magnificent Richard Harrow, who's the closest thing the story has to a hero in a world where everyone's morally ambiguous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing January 17, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Even my wife,who usually eschews violence,was cemented to her seat while watching this on pay tv here in Australia.
How could anyone not like this operatic,Jacobean take on the early prohibition years?
However ,we hope it is not the last of Nucky,Arthur,Chalky,our errant Federal agent now in the pay of Al,the depicable and self righteous hypocrite Margaret,and the rest of the damaged,revenging insane,greedy plotting gangsters,corrupt politicians and molls.
Boardwalk Empire deserves to go on its way through the prohibition years.Dare we hope the 'untouchables' and Hoover will arrive eventually with their machine guns too?
The sources are so rich and the quality of the writing and production are so good that the series could go on and on to at least series six or seven like 'Breaking Bad'.
How good of HBO to give usanother timely parable.Things haven't changed since their other fictional series 'Rome'.Life is still about survival and all the rest is the thin veneer of civilisation and education which keeps us from complete anarchy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best TV Series Ever June 20, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I began watching this series after season one. I bought the first two seasons and will soon own the third season. This is five times better than the Sopranos! The life like costumes, the music, the scenery are so original as to be there as the series develops. The characters are all so fabulous and the history so close to what really happened during prohibition that it is difficult to separate the late 1920s in your mind. If the producers and actors choose to let this run the course through mid 1933 there could be many more years of this outstanding series to be seen. If I recall, at the end of the third season the time was just starting out in 1925, and Rothstein, a real life mobster has just been busted by the government as Steve Buscemi's character evades the trap set for him by his enemies. I simply cannot wait for the premier of season four in September!

Awesome, awesome, awesome. I cannot say enough good things about this series. I have wanted to watch since the beginning, but always seemed to miss it. This year I received season one and two for Christmas and finished then within 2 weeks! Wonderful storyline and Steve Buscemi is a wonderful actor. Can't wait to order season 3!

5.0 out of 5 stars So good February 13, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got hooked on this immediately. I find stories set in another time very appealing. Most people in th 20s did not live like this, but if the story of ordinary people wer told ,it would not be ineresting. Some of the best tv in recent years.

Since midway through season two I've been thinking this show is going to be about the rise of Al Capone. This season really was great at the end of season two I wasn't totally into this series but I think season three came back with a bang. and it's all here the murder the mayhem that you've known and come to love from our favorite alcohol importer and exporter's. I definitely like season three better than I liked season two from my point of view. And as always I think that Steve Buscemi doesn't excellent job on all fronts with his character. And some of the unexpected deaths are well unexpected. I like the show mainly because I like shows that are willing to knock off major characters and you never really know who's good to survive. I JUST LOVE THAT ABOUT THIS SHOW.

I want to say one thing at the end of this season there is an explosion that is the most ridiculous pyrotechnic explosion ever! I was literally laughing out loud at how gigantic they made the explosion even now I'm grinning just thinking about how ridiculous it was. I imagine they said to the pyrotechnic's guy "we need a big explosion" and the dude was like "not a problem!" it's pretty hilarious.

Thanks for reading!
