It's like the same show, except for it takes place in the 20's so there's way more crime going on, and there's far more characters with their own little sidestories, it's actually probably my favourite show.



I did watch the first few episodes and really enjoyed it...I must go back to it. Thanks for reminding me!

Nae Problem :yes:

Just make sure you keep watching after Season 2, a lot of people just stop watching it and don't get around to seeing Season 3, which to be fair is a bit slow, but it has one of the best villians I've ever seen in it.

Season 2 of Boardwalk was dreadful. So shit that I actually stopped watching after four episodes.
I watched the final episode and laughed at how fucking stupid it had become and swore I'd never watch another episode.

However, I was very bored the night Sky Atlantic showed the Season 3 premiere so I thought why not.
Really glad I did. Season 3 was like a breath of fresh air. It was like a different show and I absolutely loved it.

I loved Season 2, if anything I thought was the best, until I saw Season 4, that is. The whole conspiracy element was very good, I thought. The only issue I had was Margaret, she is such a useless character, almost as bad as Gillian Darmody. :hurl:

Season 3 is by far the worst season

Is Season 2 Rosetti era or season 3? I stopped watching after the end of whichever season that was. Dunno why I've not picked up the next season tbh.

Unbelievable.
The latest episode of Californication was actually funny :o

Easily the best episode since Season 5.

Now that it's summer I'm compiling a small list of tv shows to start/continue watching, which are as follows:

House Of Cards
Arrow (still need to see the latest season)
Boardwalk Empire (again)
Mad Men (again)
Hannibal



Anything else I'm missing?

You should watch Castle. Everyone should watch Castle. Saying that, the last series wasn't that great.
2017 Gigs (here so I remember to go)

17/06 - Guns N' Roses - London
