Boardwalk Empire: Talk a walk on The Boardwalk



I figured since Game of Thrones was such a big hit that I would try to get people in this as well. Season 2 begins in the fall. There's still time to get acquainted with Season 1. Excellent show, great acting, good storylines.

Yeah, it's good. It gets some flack from people who think that it's "not as good as expected" or whatever, but it's a pretty damn fine hour of TV. I'll take Breaking Bad, Mad Men, or Justified over this, though.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Talk a walk on The Boardwalk

Crazy Canuck, I'm basically where you are. I think it's a good show that had some great moments in the first season but it hasn't measured up yet to my other HBO favorites like The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and Game of Thrones.

Kelly MacDonald and Michael Shannon are the standouts for me. I'm interested to see where the second season goes.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Talk a walk on The Boardwalk

It started out slow for me but really geared up. The show is def worth watching. Oh dear lord the perma nudity in every episode. I didn't know people in the 20's were always nude.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Love it! It's another good example of a show that flourishes on a cable channel, but would have no chance on network tv. Thanks u cable!

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Talk a walk on The Boardwalk

I love this show

Richard Harrow is my fave. Also like Chalky White. I can't stand Jimmy I can't wait until he gets his comeuppance from Nucky

Van Alden But Michael Shannon is great.

For some reason, I think Nucky and Jimmy will reconcile.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Talk a walk on The Boardwalk

The show has gotten significantly better this season. Last episode, while maybe a little bit too literal in its Oedipus overtones, was one of the most emotional and shocking episodes on television in the last year. Michael Pitt and Gretchen Mol both deserve emmy's for their work this week. Kelly MacDonald and Jack Huston have been strong all season as well.
