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.

Unfortunately, Season 3 is the season that jumped the shark on this series. I don't think that showing Nucky to be weak-willed and weak-minded was that smartest thing to do, because his behavior makes it doubtful that anyone would follow him--and yet they do follow him and die for him--and also makes it doubtful that Nuck would have survived at all. After the nadir of terrible decisions he makes it becomes impossible to believe in his motivations and also the motivations of many of the characters, including especially those of his paramour. I can understand the inclusion of her life in the drama as it allows for a lot of plot development about the struggles for women's rights in the 20s era, but the actress' prissy--or perhaps, more flatteringly, her prim--portrayal makes it hard to understand her affair with her man's right-hand man. And after everything explodes, and Nucky manages to survive, his pleading for her to come back to him appear completely insincere.

I see that the series continued for another 2 years (those are currently behind a paywall). I can't imagine how or why.

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.

The only thing I am disappointed about is that we only get 3 seasons of this show with Prime. I was expecting to be able to watch the entire series.

Okay, okay, you want a review. In the beginning, that is season 1, I was challenged to suspend disbelief, to overlook flaws in period representation. In the beginning I was annoyed at the fact that after being in the sea, the labels were still firmly attached to the liquor bottles being washed on the shore in the opening. Not to mention the music. In the beginning every character was just plain bad. In the beginning the sex and violence and violent sex disgusted me. But then, I fell in love. I fell in love with Nucky, Jimmy, Richard.I hated other characters even more passionately I paid for season two. I paid for season three. I am addicted.
It makes me question everything I thought I knew about good and evil.
Never mind all that, it is a television series, that's all. It is supposed to entertain by transporting you to a totally different reality, and that is what it does. It isn't art, it is entertainment, and that is good enough.
