Episode 3 was magnificent.

The scene in the dentists seat - bloody hell!

All three episodes have been masterpieces and just perfect in every way.

If it continues like this for a couple of seasons it will be better than The Wire.

watched episodes one and 2, last night and going to watch episode 3 tonight. It's been fantastic so far from the opening credits onwards, visually stunning, acting superb . Easily Buscemi's best role. I'm actually blown away by a tv series for the first time in a long time. The Wire was a slow burner for me, so were Lost and The Sopranos. This has been brilliant from the off

Though I've only seen the first two seasons of The Wire, this is awesome viewing in my book. Epic on every scale and great characters.

Plus it's HBO, so gratutitious nudity. Woohoo!

That said the show is mostly perfect, but I do hope the pace picks up in the next few episodes. It is in danger of becoming duller than Lost.

What's wrong with that? This is a slow burner.
Most HBO shows are like that: The Wire, Sopranos, Deadwood, Carnivale etc.
And the best dramas on TV are slow paced: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy.

Nothing really, and the quality right now is outstanding.

Enjoyed the latest ep. 
The point of the Mrs Schroeder character is starting to become a bit clearer now.  I'm also liking how we're seeing Al Capone rise through the underworld.  Without wanting to give away any spoilers, I'm looking forward to seeing Al and Jimmy's repercussions.

That was an excellent scene. Loving this show so far. I personally think the 1920s is one of the last great historical periods (of which we have no current survivors).

Am loving this show, the slow burn aspect is brilliant, the characters all have purpose and the writing is excellent. And its darkly funny as well.

Surprised this is only getting a few comments each episode. 
I'm loving it, standout for me this week was the gunning down of the Greek boss.  Classic stuff.

Just caught up on this. The knifing - fuck me that was cold.

Margeret Schroeder's neighbour was a bit bitchy, eh?

Does anyone else keep looking at Steve Buscemi and thinking, "and this guy played "shut the fuck up" Donny? - Bloody hell!"

Yeah, and for someone that will forever be 'kinda funny looking' Buscemi certainly is getting far more than his far share of hole in this show. Just goes to prove that power is sexy.

Like the way the Capone character is being explored. He's all too often shown at the hight of his powers, almost a parody, but it's really interesting to see the beginning, the home life and the slight hints of stone cold violence underneath.

I love the 'faceless veteran'. His mask is like a twisted Phantom of the Opera and Jimmy's exchange with the hood that slashed Pearl was fantastic to watch, though I guessed the inevitable but excellently done outcome.

I do love this show. This plus the Walking Dead means the winter is a great time for decent drama shows.

Lokking foward to this show. My Aunty has been sending me tapes. Once I'm doe I'll watch them all back to back  to take it all in.

This show sounds promising, and I like the fact it has been renewed for a second season. Lets hope they don't do a 'Carnivale'

He reminds me of Karl Urban a bit.....anyhoo, i thought the last two eps were a bit slow but I feel that it was the calm before the storm. It's been set up nicely for the last few eps. Still absolutely loving it.

Spoilers for Episode 9 - Belle Femme


Like a good game of chess (I surmise: I've never actually played the game amazingly) Mrs Schroeder's fortunes continue to go up. It's hard to prove this, but from the moment that Nooky looked at her oddly after they first met, and it became obvious that he really liked her, it was clear that she was going to rise through the echelons and become a figure of power, probably by the end of the first series. And certainly, the way that Madame Jeunet looked at her, as she carefully angled her way to getting that dress instead of a freebie for her daughter, makes it clear that there is realisation going on in her. Not for one moment do I think that power-grabbing was her intent from the start, but certainly she has realised the power that is nascent (and made clear by Madame Jeunet saying as much) in her knowing Nooky.

The series continues to be just awesome television.
