  • The real beginning of the season, the best episode so far.

    Michael is rising while his brother is having hard times finding the balance between his political survival and the sake of the hill. Things are changing. The show truly starts there, and one can even feel that the dialogues come up smoother. It's becoming more casual, more human, which makes the whole show look more realistic. Characters are stabilising themselves and the pieces of the Hill's picture assemble. As a proof, we get to know and to see Michael a bit more - him, his cool tattoos, his scars -

    The fight's scene against the Armenian dealers is a beauty, as well as the firing of Jimmy by Tommy.

    The choice of music is very clever, as always. V.U heroin's introduction is perfectly timed.

    The show has found its own rhythm and and it come out just fine, the flattering comparison with The Sopranos seems more and more relevant.
