The show needs to either cull some characters or bring some of them back together. It's getting hard to keep track of all of them.

You must have the attention span of a cricket.

The show should be renamed IBTC

Man is he ever. You almost can't say a word to him because he might take it the wrong way.

The previews for next week look really good.

I think he feels like Nucky is trolling him and treating him like a dumb fuck thats why he got offended when he said good luck because he doesn't want luck from Nucky. I do think hes like a 1920 jersey shore dude though.

everything offends him. If Nucky farted and asked to be excused, he'd get offended

lol I don't mean that I can't tell who is who. I mean the show has trouble keeping track of them. Worse, the only characters getting any regular screen time are Margaret, who hasn't been interesting in a long time, and Rosetti, who is a terrible, cliche and nonsense character. And the great characters like Chalky, Harrow, Van Alden are lucky to show up once every three episodes. To say nothing of Luciano/Lanksy/Siegel and Capone, who are barely present at all.

I think Rosetti is a lame character, and an unbelievable one. Why not just kill him? He doesn't seem to be connected to anyone and all he does is cause trouble. I would think Nucky or Rothstein would have already taken care of him by now.

Rosetti has some good lines but he's out of central casting for a goomba. Need more Chalky White!

I don't think the writers have done a good job showing how powerful Rosetti is, and why you probably just can't kill him. Same with Remus. I do like seeing Stephen Root (Milton) on the show though, hopefully he gets more screen time.

+1. I recognized the voice instantly.

Stephen Root will always be Jimmy James or Bill Dauterive to me.

Rosetti is not a historical character, so they can whack him without affecting the timeline.

One interesting scene- The one with Lansky's gopher running heroin uptown. The Mafia and associated Jewish racketeers were the primary drivers of heroin trafficking throughout the first half of the 20th century, continuing to some extent into the early 80s. In fact the first federal agency that realized the extent of the Mafia nationwide (and ties to the old country) was the old Bureau of Narcotics, long before the FBI was on their tail. The notion that the Mafia never touched drugs is pure fiction.

The gopher was Ben Siegel. Lucky was notorious for bringing narcotics into the United States. In the 70s after the French Connection was busted, the Bonanno Family brought in a faction of Zips from Sicily and started up the Pizza Connection to sell heroin.
