    I can't believe this got a second series. I gave up on the first series after about 6 or 7 episodes. It was so boring, the story just wasn't going anyway, I didn't care about any of the characters. It was well acted, and shot, just the storey line wasn't gripping enough.

    The Oedipal quagmire only enhances the political treachery.

    It's essential viewing. All of the promise of last season looks to be realized with impressively deft storytelling, beautiful cinematography and impeccable acting.

    Boardwalk Empire is doing what I wish Prohibition had done--it's tempting me to stick around for one more.
