    It’s an ambitious work that is always fascinating, if not always successful. When all is said and done, Boardwalk Empire may be TV’s best uneven series.

    Boardwalk Empire is as good-looking and well-acted as ever, but it still has bullet holes where its head and heart should be.

The cinematography is stunning, as well as the sets,costumes and sfx. The acting is top rate, the writing is subtle and nuanced, and the story is unpredictable and dark. This is another winner from HBO, and an amazing TV show overall. The first episode of Season 4 was amazing, and i am sure the rest of the season will be too.The year is 1924, and crime,corruption, and bloodshed has no end in sight in this moody drama.

    It's no joke that Boardwalk Empire is a brilliant show with great writing, writing I haven't seen since The Sopranos. This season by far makesIt's no joke that Boardwalk Empire is a brilliant show with great writing, writing I haven't seen since The Sopranos. This season by far makes up for last in every way. The cinematography is beautiful, character development is spot on, the story is A+. My only concern is that someone shouldn't die every episode, its not needed when you have such good writing. Must watch season and series. Full Review »
