Damn, what an awesome episode!
well, I'm sure it will be, it's never disappointed me
That was mean.
Looking forward to it, although I'll probably not see it until tomorrow afternoon.
It's more than an hour until airtime.
By the power vested in me by absolutely nobody, I hereby ban you for life.
Let's agree to disagree.
As much as I like this show, one of the frustrating things to me is how slow it starts. Unlike other cable dramas, where each show is enjoyable to watch, I find BE to be maddeningly slow in buildup, and I sometimes have to make myself watch. So far, I've enjoyed how each season has ended, to the point I come back the next year, as the payoff is worth it.
But the day will come when I can't take it any more, and they will lose one viewer.
And this, BTW, is why one doesn't start threads before thread-time. They get filled with the endless rants of the hoi polloi, instead of actual comments on the show we just watched.
Sigh.. I dread the day when slower paced story telling dies in favor of ADHD story telling.
Oh, and Brad, you suck.
Oh I almost forgot this was tonight. Thanks and BIH Brad!
I always record the premium channel shows like this on the west coast feeds so they don't interfere with other things I want to record during local prime time. I don't know what the hell that has to do with anything here. It just came to mind when Rob mentioned it was over an hour until it starts. For me it records well after my bedtime, but it's one of those shows that I watch as soon as possible the next day.
There's a difference between slower-paced, and meandering. And there are pacings in between lethargic and ADHD. Many shows manage to find that sweet spot. My comment is that BE tends to one end of the spectrum. Doesn't mean I prefer the other end. And this is an opinion shared by others:
In fact, it's interesting to note that this reviewer found this season taking off at a faster pace than previous seasons, and found this worthy of note. Positive note.
Again, these are just opinions. We all have them.
But hey, it's time to discuss the show!
Fast enough for you?
Yes! I thought this was an excellent start to the season. And it's good to see Chalky have a prominent role. I've always thought he was underused. Same with Nucky's brother (name?). Seems like he will be playing a bigger part.
And one can never have too much Alphonse Caponi.
Did AR seem abnormally pale?
I was a bit confused about Harrow and the insurance agents he killed in the first scene and the guy sitting at his desk that he shot in the head. I can't remember what that is about or why he is going after them.
So, no Margaret this season, or ever?
Yeah, me too. I was wondering what that's about. Seems he has some vendetta on that insurance agent.
Nice start to the season with just he right amount of gratuitous sex and violence. I've realized this is one show I can't watch while my daughter is around, and she' now 14!!. Chaulky's assistant...wow, that's some way to murder someone. But I could see that if I was in his shoes, why he did that. Especially after the wife set it up that her husband's a cheater.
I wonder what they are going to do with Darmity's mom? She's selling the big house, but what then?
So Nucky makes peace with the NY Mob. Was AR just the intermediary? I loved his line about the odds of Nucky trying to kill him. That was awesome.
She is in the opening credits but I suspect it will be only here and there.
They didn't show Van Alden either but he will be back.
They showed Van Alden in the real quick recap from last season right before the show and in the context I was assuming we'd see him in this episode. Margaret was only shown in the scene where the dead dude in the box was delivered to Nucky.
YAY! Eddie Kessler is ALIVE!
but he still doesn't have a personal life.
"You should leave."
I gotta read up on what Harrow had against those real estate guys. They foreclosed on his sister's home?
Lucky Luciano is in the fold in the Italian outfit.
I like how the lieutenants for Torrio and Rothstein, Lucky Luciano and Meyer Lansky become big time gangsters in their own right (and of course Capne too).
I felt bad for the newspaper guy when Capone came for a visit to scare the crap out of him for spelling his name wrong. That guy would have crapped his pants in real life.
