    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.moreless

    "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?moreless

    This show is awesome. From the cast, the script, the scenario, ecc ecc.

    I just finished season one in 2 days and I'm already watching season two, this show is addictive.

    I truly advice everyone to give a shot of this show because is a great one.



    The only problem that I have with the show, like for a lot of movie too, is the fact that all the "Italian" speaking dialogues are not done in Italian. Every time a character is supposed to speak Italian he is talking gibberish with he add of some casual Italian words. It's extremely annoying, especially for the Italian audience. They spend million on this show, why not bring someone who really speak Italian and teach some lines to the actors??!!

    It's like when a movie character is present as Chinese but in reality he is speaking Japanese during the entire movie. Most of the people will not see the difference but for a lot of others this is kinda of annoying.moreless

    Iv watched Broadwalk Empire from the first season and I just wasn't sold until this season. It always looked great but the pacing at times was always a little off for me. I know it sacrilege to say but I thought it was better than breaking bad this year. The characters are fleshed out and the music has been a really nice element. Chalky and Capone have taken up more of the stage and the show is better for it. Watching this and then the standard network procedural, there really is a enormous gap in every aspect. You wont regret giving this your timemoreless

    Boardwalk Empire's series finale was relatively quiet, yet very moving.
