Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

I don't think the FBI even existed in 1923. It was 24 or 26 that it was formed. Hoover ignored the mob anyway for a long time as he claimed it didn't exist

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Meh, every show ever has story lines that I've found lame. It's just them trying to be a well rounded show to appeal to a wider audience.

What makes shows good though is that even during the story lines that aren't mean for your demographic, you still enjoy the show because the acting, directing, dilagoue etc can carry it.

Man I forgot how nitty OOTtv is. I love you guys, but I think many of you might need some testosterone replace therapy.

Not referencing sherer though, because his comment was pretty hilarious.

So what's Harrow's angle now? He killed who was responsible for Angela's murder. He seemed sincere telling Nucky that he wasn't interested in harming him and certainly couldve done it if he wanted to.

Will be become a hired gun for Nucky? Maybe he'll be the guy to eventually put an end to Gyp.....

I was kind of disappointed with that scene. I really wanted Harrow to go on a murderous rampage.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

I was completely onboard with Gyp this episode until he committed death by arson. Boardwalk has such a deep cast of characters and it's upsetting that we can whole episodes without seeing Capone/Rothstein/Chalky etc.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

If Nucky were more intimidating Gyp wouldn't be running around like this.


Seriously though, his reasoning for doing what he is doing is just bad. Not even sure I can call it reasoning. I like the actor a lot and think that character is good, and will probably be better once they just get it out of the way that he's the villain for one reason or another, but this episode seemed a bit dumb. Capone was a huge murderer but I think he would murder mostly (mostly) for business, and not for random nonexistant insults like this.

I think he will be... I think harrow comes back to be his enforcer again.

Harrow is def my fav secondary character though and I think there is always a danger of over exposing him.... they came pretty close to that when he stayed at nucky's house, I think.

I don't hate the two leads, they just keep the show being very good, instead of great. SB just can't over come the fact that he is a pretty old, tired looking actor who looks like he will piss his pants every time someone is close to swinging a fist at him; margaret is an an unfortunate character and the writers really ****ed up by thrusting her from one cliche dramatic side plot to another.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Dont think he is trying to gain anything its just against his code to let someone else get into trouble for something that he did and he knew mickey was too stupid to realize what he had said.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

If a person who is in a killing business would fess up to every murder he committed because someone else is taking credit for it, he just isn't going to last very long. just feels like lazy writing to bring Nuggy and Harrow together. And doesn't Nuggy already have that Irish chap as his enforcer? Eli is there too... oh well i don't really care too much about all that... Harrow is awesome

Basically comes down to this imo. Need ton bring him into the story one way or another.


Doubt it's possibly to rationalize well, but it's possible he would have explained why he committed the murder eventually anyways. Also he might have felt compelled because he doesn't usually kill people for his own reasons.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

just feel like mentioning this... i think van alden used to be the worst character by far on the show, however, his new subplot selling vacuum cleaners, while living with his new sweedish wife is amazing. i hope they dont change a thing and keep it like that; just having him be a vacuum cleaner salesman would be awesome

It's irons not vacuum cleaners but I think he will be one of the more interesting characters developments. He is slowly but surely creeping over to the dark side and will inevitably go to work for the flowershop guy. Disallusioned by the unfairness of the sales competition, the butt of office pranks, and the crookedness of law enforcement will cause him at some point to snap.

he has nothing to gain because he doesn't care. He's been doing this on his own and telling nucky is also it's own form of intimidation. He tells nucky that nucky is okay, but it's damn well known now that richard can pick off whoever the **** he wants and will tell someone that he's doing it while he's doing it.

Richard also knows nucky and knows the person he is dealing with. Yes, nucky has gone full gangster, but he's still nucky and knows how richard operates. I highly doubt richard walks into capone's place and spills the beans as Richard can't bring forth that kind of intimidation to capone.

it's really not the point of what he's doing. He doesn't care. He's been walking dead for a while. It doesn't really matter all too much to him if he dies or lives. Gillian wiping out the life of Angela was the full straw that broke the camel's back.

This.

The scene in the woods comes to mind on how he doesn't care if he lives or dies.

He wants credit for this murder because he wants people to know it was to avenge Angela and that she has not been forgotten in death.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Show really misses Jimmy. Was to be expected though since he ended up becoming the accidental center/heart of the show imo.

Bobby Cannavale is great. Unsure how necessary that final kill scene was though and the character writing seems to be lacking.
