    So Sad... hide show

    What a shame to see such a great show go; great characters, awesome settings, a storyline that relates to real life events, sad sad sad! Especially when you see mind numbing "run away from the gouls" shows actually gaining ratings when clearly, the writers haven't had a clue what to come up with for a looooong time ( in case you're wondering; yes, I am talking about the god awful walking dead ) . Another one bites the dust; so long Nuck!

    Fantastic! hide show

    Boardwalk Empire is a fantastic show! Great cast and acting, amazing look and costumes/make-up. This show should have a ton more awards than it has. Only thing that upsets me is the last season needed more episodes, they skipped a lot of real life events . the gambler) and some of the stories were really abbreviated where entire episodes could have better finished things off.

    SUITS AND TIES AND GREEDY FLIES hide show

    I'M PISSED THAT THEY ARE CANCELLING BOARDWALK EMPIRE. STUPID RATNGS. IT'S SUCH A GREAT SHOW! PEOPLE JUST DON'T GET HOW IN DEPTH EACH CHARCTER IS AND WHAT THEIR STORIES HAVE TOLD BEHIND IT. MORE OF THIS EPIC STORY COULD BE REVEALED, BUT WHEN YOU HAVE COMPITITIONS (WHICH DOESN'T HOLD A CANDLE) TO BOARDWALK EMPIRE, THE BIG WIGS AND THEIR GREEDY LITTLE SNOUTS SHUT DOWN SOME OF THE MOST ARTISTIC, HISTORICAL SHOWS CAUSE LITTLE TEENY BOPPER SHOWS LIKE TRUE BLOOD AND OTHER LAME PROGRAMS PERTAIN AROUND MORE DRAMA THAN A VARIETY OF SORTS. SO I GIVE A BIG MIDDLE FINGER IN THE AIR AND SAY POOR CHOICE YOU GREEDY LITTLE SWINES. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE DEADLY SIN "GREED"? WELL YOUR BATHING IN YOUR OWN GREEDY FILTH.

    Enjoy the Ride! hide show

    "Nucky" et al, create a fascinating look into the lifestyle of the prohibition era, and the "Roaring 20's". As a Historian I certainly take issue with what is passed for fact. Irregardless, the show is interesting and entertaining as a fiction series, where I wait with baited breath for the next instalment. I do have a question however. Why is it ending after the eighth episode of season 5? The other seasons having gone for 12 each? Was there a dispute? Was it cancelled?
