    I know this is going to be biased as it's in the Boardwalk Empire forum, but... there's a lot of discussion already going on, calling the show either boring or entertaining. So which is it? Let's have a vote to find out!

    The series, as is the case with historical drama, is dialogue driven, and asks as many questions as it answers, requiring you to think. If your taste runs to action sequences or fantasy/sci-fi, this isn't the show for you. It moves slowly, but is far from boring.

    It's definitely interesting, slow but yes entertaining. I find the tension between certain characters sort of fascinating.

    Slow, but entertaining nonetheless.

    Overall, it's a good show.

    Everyone has a different opinion.


    Many people find slow-moving dramas and mysteries to be VERY entertaining. Others might see that same show/novel/etc and, while appreciating the quality and effort, find it boring.



    Sure, they could've gone the Untouchables route and had gang-wars left and right... kicking in doors, shooting people, etc.


    But they went another direction.



    I like it... it's not my favorite show of the week (or even the day) but I like it.


    So for my preference, it's entertaining.

    Extremely entertaining, take the last episode (Oct 16), lots of skin but a great and entertaining episode. Not the skin, well that too, the storyline.
