I'm less and less excited about watching the next episode every week.
i agree with you,remember how great the sopranos was the first season (and continued to get better) with each ep.by the way im starting to rewatch it again all the way from the pilot and i highly recommend it,its been a awhile and i actually forgot a lot of what happend in that series.even on second viewing its more entertaining then this.
i think the main problem with this show is casting,if you get that right the writing will come naturally.
obviously the nucky/jimmy relationship is tony/chrissy,but compare the two..its night and day in terms of charisma...
the only two character on the show who have any so far dont get any airtime,capone and the FBI agent (i think hes fantastic) and to a lesser omars character.
i mean shit,the main character of the show has no charisma?
thats a fail righ there,and dont even get me started on jimmy
they need to infuse some larger then life types quick,im talking phil Letoardo,furo,pauly type guys....guys that despite being sociopaths were quite likable,and funny...AND WATCHABLE!!!
i think this show is a bit too in love with itself and the period and needs to focus on the characters or lack there of..give us some goons we can cheer for and i'll keep watching
