Boardwalk Empire
Anybody here watch this new HBO show?
I have to download it because it does not air in my country (yet) but I am completely smitten!

I feel Boardwalk Empire deserves a thread here, if only for the perfect set and costume design.

I haven't seen it yet. I can't wait though. Michael Pitt, Steve Buscemi, Stephen Graham... you can't go wrong with these actors...

I thought the first episode was brilliant, but I do find the show very slow paced.

I think the show is very well thought out, the pace gives room for beautiful moments (like in the 5th episode, the whole sequence between Pearl & Jimmy) and for amazing character development.

THis show is so great. The love story is soooo odd yet compelling.I strongly reccomend it, all the stories, Gretchen Mol, What can I say it´s a great show, don´t miss it. Sometimes when they tell you a show is great because of the costumes and historical recreation you think Yawn, but this is GOOD, like MADMEN good.

LOVE this show, so glad that I decided to give it a go. The prohibition era is one of my favourites (I studied it at school) so it's interesting to see a different take on it.

The FBI police guy creeps me out so much, and especially after what happened in the last episode, I'm even more freaked out.

I guess he's going to try and get information out of the girl right?

I´m catching up, just in episode 7, but I´m soo hooked on it that this weekend I´ll be updated. Such a thrilling show. The FBI guy is SOOOOOOO creepy, his face....
I´m bewitched by Nucky, how can an ugly guy become so magnetic just by great acting.
Do give this show a try because it´s excellent.

Last episode was very good.
Finally I got to understand a bit who is Jimmy´s dad and how come his mother is so young (white writing for spoiler). Also the final dialogue between Nucky and Margaret was really good. They confront their souls in a very touching way.
The FBI guy......MMMMMmmmmmmm.

Does anybody know how many episodes are in this season? Twelve?

GREAT FINALE!

What a great actor is Steve Buscemi, the dialog with Margaret when he reveals his past....so touching.

I´m not paid by HBO to post here....just liked the show so much and it´s still "undiscovered"

LOVE this show! It's one of few I bother to keep up with these days. The only bad part is when it ends i really want to see what will happen next. now i have to wait until it comes back.
