Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

Yeah, I watched but forgot to post because I immediately watched the new episode of Treme.

Seems like they realized they have so many characters to juggle now that they're going to rotate their stories in out (with Nucky and Margaret being the constants, of course). Last week we had Van Alden, Capone, and Gillian and Richard, and this week we got Eli and Chalky.

Speaking of Eli, it's good to see him again and I'm interested in seeing where he will find himself going. That being said, I can't remember what landed him in the slammer. I know it wasn't for murdering what'shisface (honestly, I don't think I ever knew his name) in Eli's garage, so what was it?

During Chalky's story, I couldn't help but think of Copper and how it's handle black integration for its time period, which was really the only thing that interested me in that show (but ultimately wasn't enough to keep me interested and I stopped watching). Even so, I find what Boardwalk Empire is doing is far more interesting and not just because of the pure awesomeness that is Michael Kenneth Williams.

I'm still on the fence on Rosetti. He's an asshole and probably underestimated by others, but right now I'm not sure if I really care. But it's Boardwalk Empire so I'm willing to give him a chance.
