Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Good start to the season. Thought our introduction to Cannavale's character was a bit cliche but his performance is great. Manny getting it was a complete surprise to me. All in all thought it was a good episode and am interested to see where it goes, probably most notably with Harrow and the goings-on in Chicago.

I get this feeling a lot when watching BE, felt that way throughout the premiere even though I did like it

this guy needs spoiler tags before the season airs.

Cannavale's character looks awesome by the way. He did a real good job. Loved when he went off on Rothstein and all of them at Nucky's.

Loved it.

Think the rossetti guy is gonna have a major influence this year, though was not very impressed yet, hope it picks up in coming eps.

Loved it, but knew as soon as we got a lot of Manny and Wife time that he was dead. Enjoyed Bobby Canavale too.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Grunched thoughts.

On Sepniwall's podcast they'd joked about how Bobby Canavale's character took offense to everything, and I didn't realize how literal they were being. Really disliked that character a lot. Too obvious, too broad, just not interesting at all.

Unless Van Alden ties into things more, I'm also not terribly interested in him.

Liked the rest a great deal. The show kinda lost me midway through S2, but I just caught up and between the S2 finale and this (which I both watched last night), I am excited for this season.

I found it interesting that despite his former work that consumed his life, it meant nothing as far as eliminating the problem of illegal booze. The guy making bathtub gin while he's going door to door was well done. I think he has to be in a 'If you can't beat them, join them.' situation.

Also florist has no idea what kind of tool he has now in Van Alden.

the setup with o'banion and how he was treated at his sales company pretty much dictates that he will get more involved. I'm guessing he'll be an enforcer for the north side gang

that florist is dion o'bannion, the leader of the north side gang. He's got some real muscle behind him without van alden

greenwald review

pretty much agree with this..I like the show and watch it every sunday but I think it's really overrated on 2+2..I was surprised at how many people had it in their top 5 lists

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Both in the S2 finale and in this ep- I though the way they used some of the music/effects (can't remember in which ep the tea kettle came to a point at just the prefect time for dramatic tension) was kinda transparent in its attempts to manipulate the mood and tension. A little restraint would have gone a long way.

Wasn't horrible. It doesn't seem like there is going to be much of a story in Atlantic city.

I've always hated this guy too for some reason. That character needs to improve drastically for me to get to neutral on him.

Cannavale has an incredible natural douche vibe. If they ever make yankeefan.gif into a movie, he will play the lead.

Agree on Cannavale. This is the only thing I've enjoyed w/him (extremely NSFW language):

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Liked everything but Margaret getting air time and the new gangster acting like a weak *****. The dude just over reacts to everything and already needs a bullet in his brain. IM digging how right from the get go Nucky is in full gangster mode, definitely makes it fun.

You guys are just going to have to deal with the fact that they're going to let women on TV for reasons other than getting naked.
