Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

This episode was the first time I was ever kind of bored by this show. I guess it was setting everything up though.

That did cross my mind. It's not like Gillian to want to bang some kid who looks like her son just to get her rocks off. She's very calculating, usually does things for a reason to benefit herself.

I just can't take Daughtery seriously. Whenever he opens his mouth all I hear is "I eat pieces of **** like you for breakfast".

I don't know that the parts about her being calculating are wrong, but I think she very much could also be just doing the above.

She doesn't do things on a whim for the sake of it, she's quite measured and tactful, if not a little schizo and incestuous.

She sought out a young buck who looked like her son and called him Jimmy. In the same episode when she reminded herself while berating Lucky that it was Jimmy's house, then removed all photos of Jimmy in the house, the house that Chianese informed her last week could be hers if she declared Jimmy dead. All a coincidence? We'll soon find out. I would not be surprised though if Roger will soon be pushing up daisies under the guise of Jimmy Darmody.

i realize these guys are actors, but Christopher McDonald has been in so many crappy comedies over the years (not talking about Happy Gilmore) that I don't like seeing an actor like that on this show.

Reading around the net, i cant believe people disliked this more than episode 2. it wasnt great, but episode 2 was just so damn boring.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

im not going over their resumes, but Macdonald probably has a lot worse crap on his... but that's fair i guess. i dont associate Buscemi with any one character, I'm sure people always see the Lebowski character. MacDonald will never top Shooter.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Regarding the gypsy - was there actually a guy outside the house? Is the kid just nuts? I kept waiting for "gypsy" to be "gyp rosettit" but i knew that wasn't gonna be the case. Was Owen the gypsy? What was the point of all that?

Also, we have to assume the kid saw Owen and Margaret right?

The kid obviously has some mental issues. I'm not sure about the whole gypsy thing to be honest. Maybe Owen just said he took care of him to stick up for the kid?

Huh? He's a kid, they're all weird- ones in broken homes moreso. Nothing about him says "mental issues" to me.

I've got him pegged as at least as having a severe learning disability.

That see you next Tuesday Margaret didn't even apologize to the kid, she was too busy getting her hole stuffed in the greenhouse.

I'm pretty sure Harrow is going to be in love with any girl who treats him with respect and like a normal human being.

I think pyromania qualifies as a "mental issue".

Also, I guess Michael K. Williams was only available for six minutes of screen time this season.
