This season Boardwalk Empire are more compelling than ever, great characters, great plot and an hell of a incredible season finale. Season four is not perfect like season three, but still strong and spectacular.
The new season relies heavily on the show’s rich mood and atmosphere, inasmuch as series creator Terence Winter and his crew appear content to ease back into the proceedings while hitting the reset button.
There's a lot of slow exposition here, requiring patience for new characters (like Ron Livingston as wealthy playboy Roy Phillips). But the body count builds by the time the credits roll, so those quiet rooms won't stay quiet for long. [6 Sep 2013, p.71]
Boardwalk Empire is a brilliant show and each season is better than the last. 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 **** year is 1924, and crime,corruption, and bloodshed has no end in sight in this moody drama.
Es la temporada que ha ganado en complejidad argumental y emocional. Es cierto que ha perdido algo de ese Boom que lo caracteriza, pero aun asi esta temporada es mejor que la tercera temporada, una trama mejor elaborada y personajes como Eli, Chalkie y en especial el carismatico Richard toman mas protagonismo en esta temporada y lo hacen tan genial.
Fans of Boardwalk Empire can expect more of the same: intriguing and consistently well acted characters, emotionally complex storylines, lavish yet thoroughly authentic sets and a pitch perfect soundtrack. And yet, unlike most other shows where higher expectations force diminishing emotional returns, Boardwalk Empire digs in and ploughs greater emotional depths.
The entire cast are as always top notch, but the slow evolution of all the surviving major characters seems to be reaching a zenith. And if a major character should fall by the wayside you can rest assured that, no matter how brief their story or how unexpected their death may be, the impact will be felt and their loss justified.
I love this show too much to let it go, but come on Boardwalk!! The show has gotten so slow and some episodes have left me depressed about how well, bad it was. Boardwalk doesn't rub off on me like it used to. All of the scenes take place in very few locations, no scenes on the Boardwalk this season, and very slow character development with an overall impression that not much is happening. I miss the extravagant scenes at the ritz and the beach on the boardwalk. This show was/is too good to let it go, please writers make me feel like I did in season 1 & 2. Please!
