The second to last episode of a season is usually a disappointment. It consists mostly of build up to lead into the season finale that will soon be following and therefore lacking in excitement. This week’s Boardwalk, however, was nothing of the sort. From the very beginning it was full of action and the excitement […]Read more "TV Without Commercials: Boardwalk Empire 3.11"

Well, it’s been a while (once again) since I’ve written about this season of Boardwalk but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been watching (once again). Last week we saw Nucky in a way we have never seen him before, severly concussed. Not only was he in a terrible state of mind from his injuries, but […]Read more "TV Without Commercials: Boardwalk Empire 3.10"
So I know it has been several weeks since I have written anything about the current season of Boardwalk Empire, but that doesn’t mean that I have not been watching.

The third season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, started off with a bang…or better yet a whack. Several whacks to be exact, Gyp Rossetti. Gyp, from New York, and Dean O’Banion from Chicago, are two new mobsters we have already been introduced to this season, and based on the premiere alone this season practically guarantees to deliver drama […]Read more "TV Without Commercials: Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Premiere"

When I first saw that the title of this episode was called Georgia Peaches, I was slightly confused. What could Georgia peaches have to do with Atlantic City, gangsters and liquor? Then it hit me. During the scene where Nucky goes to New York to find a new lawyer, he meets with Arnold Rothstein’s lawyer […]Read more "TV Without Commercials Review: Boardwalk Empire 2.10"
This weeks episode of Boardwalk Empire was entitled “Battle of the Century.” This was of course referring to the fight between heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey and his french challenger Georges Carpentier which took place in New Jersey on July 2nd 1921. This would be the only battle that took place during the episode and we […]Read more "TV Without Commercials Review: Boardwalk Empire 2.9"
Last nights episode of Boardwalk Empire was even more crazy than the week before, which is something I never thought would be possible. Jimmy now has the power that he has been seeking and it appears that he is in position to lead his group of young gangsters. They all have one thing in common, […]Read more "TV Without Commercials Review: Boardwalk Empire 2.7"
