back!

love it. straight into what makes boardwalk great, conflict, violence, a bit of boobs and gangster fun.

the new booze cop bit was good, fairly safe opener as it covered all the characters but offered enough interest in each.

I'm loving the fact were seeing more of the Capones this season. In fact the new storylines they've introduced (Hoover/FBI, Negro society, Eli's son) are all good ones so far. They feel like a natural progression from the first three seasons as well as keeping us up to date with Rothstein and such like. Such a great supporting cast. Amazing show.

Couldn't let you post alone YFU, so sod it, I'm back at Empire forums for the first time in years

Agreed, the Capones/Hoover introductions have been fantastic. Doctor Nacisse, however, is stealing the show! Absolutely great character.

I don't know anyone else who watches this show, which is strange for my circle of friends and their tastes. They should all be lapping this up. Shame to see Patricia Arquette looking so old now though - that makes me feel old knowing how much I used to 'admire' her in my pubescent years

I thought I was the only one watching at UK speed!

Chalky White is in for a rough time I'm thinking....

Yep - looks like Nucky will soon be having to return the favours from the end of last season. Intrigued to see how this will play out.

The return of Nuckys wife the previous week felt like a weird 'shoe in' to keep her character relevant. However, the introduction of Rothstein this week to that particular thread was a nice twist.

Caught up yet YFU?

Great episode. Good to see the Chalky storyline coming to a climax. However, I fear there's a lot more to come. All the doctors devious work can't be undone by a few tears, surely? Or maybe that's poetic.

The script in this show is the sharpest around. Every week the dialogue is fantastic! Just love it.

Finally watched the last couple of episodes of this last night and bloody hell!! There were some real kick in the knackers endings to some of those characters not least Harrow. Man I am so bummed out. Was a great a show. Really enjoyed it all the way through and I wasn't sure I would after Jimmy. Think it's going to take me a while to process that end.

I agree wholeheartedly. Harrows demise really got me - beautifully executed. Watching it, you obviously knew it was his 'death dream sequence' yet, in my heart, I was still in complete denial. I think this season has been the strongest yet, closely followed by season 2.

"This is your mess Eli, drown in it" was a superb line from what is still the best scripted show on TV.

Good to know Narcisse will be back for the final season in the pocket of the FBI. He's been a superb bad guy.

It's going to be very interesting to see how it all wraps up. I'm quite pleased the next one will be the last I will certainly miss it but hopefully it will go out on a high which it really deserves. I wonder how much we'll get to see of the rise of the likes of Capone and Luciano etc.

Both the other half and I were willing all the way through that last scene that Harrow would make it. As soon as it cut to his full face we were both gutted as our suspicions were confirmed. Was very hard to watch.

Lets not forget how rewarding this program is in its character development. Michael Shannon's characters has been basically in slow fuse stasis since the end of season 1. Over 3 seasons they've finally brought him back with a BANG. Eli clocking him in the car being his driver at the end was class. 3 season's we've waited for his character to come full circle and back into Atlantic City.

Just finished season four. Whole thing was phenomenal. Gutted my favourite minor characters are gone. Season three was possibly slightly better, but Boardwalk is some of the best TV I've seen in years

Disappointed in Season 5 so far after three episodes. There's only five episodes left as it's a shorter run, hope it ups it's game to it's usual level soon.

So anyone have any thoughts about the ending?

Don't want to spoil anything but I'll say I really enjoyed the end. Quite emotional for a fair few characters in the end. I am sad to see it go but I think they've ended it at the right time.

I liked it but feeling a little emptier now that its all over. Kept myself from buying the individual seasons when they were made available on DVD but now I can look forward to getting the complete box set of Boardwalk Empire when it comes out. Hope they release loads of special features. Such a beautiful series and will miss it greatly.

Me too. I will really miss visiting that world. It would be interesting to watch again knowing everything that we know about the characters now. More heartbreaking in lots of ways I think.

Disappointing. Think that it needed at least another series, to bridge between the last one and this one. Was enjoying the last series, but episode seven was poor. Thought eight was pitched quite nicely, lower key as fitting with the series, but the last ten minutes seemed to be tacked on.

Also, it didn't sit well, as Tommy was practically raised by Richard, who I believe would absolve Nucky of any blame for Jimmy's death.

Possibly although I'm not sure he would have but even if he might have he was dead from the end of the last series so we don't know who Tommy was raised by. We assume his Mrs but we don't know. Also I'm not sure that's why he did him in. I got the impression it was more to either get ahead or because he has really pissed him off in rejecting him.

The whole final season was just one big let down for me from start to finish. A real shame considering the quality TV they produced for the first four seasons. Gutted really.

Just finished season 5 at long last. I'm still a bit gutted Winter/HBO decided not to cover 1928/29 but despite my trepidation the jump to 1931 was handled beautifully. The final episode was a work of art. Absolutely stunning television.
