Boardwalk Empire - Page 6

post #76 of 1172
Like it However I don't like that Jimmy keeps telling Nucky that he's seen shit in the war but I don't think it reflects that much on his actions overall (even considering the roadside robbings).

I like it so far, will continue to watch.

In the scene where the man and the 19yr old girl are being pushed down the boardwalk on that cart - the guy pushing them had a cream colored sweater on with a tie under, the sweater was really nice.

I saw that sweater and pointed out that I really liked it; normally this would be fine as my gf would agree, however it was my roommate I was watching it with. He looked at me like I was some kind of weirdo...Later on in the episode he pointed out a cardigan Jimmy was wearing that he thought was interesting...We lol'd.

This episode was a bit slow as well, however you can feel everything building up big time. Nucky vs Rothstein will be a big battle. Based on the previews, the next episode should have much more action.

buscemi is just too sickly looking to be scary.

i'm undecided on whether i like the deadwoodpranos thus far.

Omar gets in next epi. Looking to see if he can pull off another character.

Nucky gave Jimmy a lesson that might make Jimmy bitter and will come back to haunt Nucky.

Yea...I was going to complain in this thread about how slow-moving that episode was, but I guess it was kind of necessary to set up further plot development. That being said, the predictable domestic frustrations in Jimmy's situation, as well as the Scottish chick from Trainspotting's (forget her name in the show) constant piety and shyness are already getting on my nerves. I get that she's supposed to be sweet-natured and innocent in regards the vices of Atlantic City, but she'd better transform relatively quickly or her constant "Oh no Mr. Thompson...please don't help me..." pleas are going to get old quick.

I think it's going ok so far. Could have been better, but they started out with a ton of characters, too many imo for a first episode. I think whoever said it was right, so far Buscemi has been able to be successful because of his personality and a kind of freindly abuse of the law. But prohibition has brought the real wolves out and he isnt sure if he can hack it. How he chose to beat up the irish chicks husband instead of enforcing on the gangster who was clearly stealing money from him. Last nights episode was slow, in fact, so slow I don't even remember what happened really. I hate the prohibition officer character, but it should be interesting to see where his obsession with the irish chick goes and what he can uncover. I thought that Michael Pitt took the deal and ratted out the distillery cus of the asshole who gave him the turpentine or whatever to drink. he knew that the roads would be clear for him to run his heist. and they showed both scenes happening to keep you in suspense.

Main thing I don't like about it is that it seems like they're trying to do too much at once. I mean you've got like four or five different stories happening in Atlantic City, plus stuff happening in Chicago and New York. When you only spend a few minutes on each plot thread, nothing really has a chance to sink in.

yeah. there's way too much going on. second episode seemed kind of lame. Michael Pitt owes Buscemi an extra 3k and instead of killing some one or pulling off a heist, he just steals back a necklace he bought for his mistress.

Pretty sure that was his mom. I think it also hints to how her old necklace disappeared.

Didn't he say she sold it to help raise him?

It might sound crazy but I noticed a drop-off even between the pilot which was directed by Scorsese and last weeks episode. I agree that the show may be doing to much at once, to the point where it's almost hard to follow. When a show like this becomes so convoluted, it's hard to feel the "punch" from the supposed impact of the minor plot twists.

The show has a lot of promise but it's going to have to beat really start branching off in a way that it doesn't become "The Sopranos" during the Prohibition. So far I've liked Buscemi, but I don't know how I really feel about him in a lead role. Personally I always felt his acting style and the characters he plays works better opposite the hero protagonist. I can see that Winter is trying create that dynamic between Jimmy and "Nucky", but we're not standing behind Jimmy just yet.
