Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

The Season 3 premiere was last night. What did everyone think?

I'm surprised that it took a year and half for Richard to finally take out Manny. It was a good episode all around.

They managed to turn him into a sympathetic character - not bad going considering how much of a swine he was before being left with the baby!

Shame about Manny - I was hoping he'd stick around.

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

I really loved that big Jew. Such a shame, I was interested to see how it panned out with him and Nucky working together. I wonder if Richard killed him for revenge on James or Angela?

Van Alden's storyline was interesting - that run in with Capone sets up something that could be pretty great - and I thought it was hilarious that Gillian turned the Commodore's place into a whore house. The new Rosetti guy was a bit over the top, but I enjoyed it.

This is probably my favorite show, so I'm really happy it's back. Yay.

It clearly was, based upon all the built up frustration at the disrespect Angela was receiving during the episode.

Yeah that's what I figured - with James, that's the life he chose to live but Angela certainly never did, plus the relationship Richard had with her obviously meant a lot to him. Revenge for James was probably just gravy for Richard, Angela was the meat and potatoes.

The guy who plays Richard does such an incredible job with that role, I have to say.

A note to the writers, please no more Eddie Cantor. Loved the look of disgust of Nucky's face as his affluent guests were like swine at the trough when the baubbles were placed before them. So many good things in this episode I'll have to watch again to see them all.

I thought it was a decent premiere, but it didn't bowl me over. I'm reserving judgment on Rosetti.

Loved it. I'm impressed with how they're able to keep the overall feel of the show consistent.

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

I'm so happy this show is back. I had no idea how much I missed it until tonight.

Richard remains one of my favorite characters and I really felt for him in regards to Angela. He really cared for her and the way Gillian's is treating Angela's memory is disgraceful. Good on Richard blowing away Manny even though I'll miss his character.

I'll agree that they've successfully managed to make Van Alden a sympathetic character, which is remarkable considering how much I despised him before. But hey, I despised Jimmy until late season (and then they killed the bastard!). I'm going to make a prediction now: He's going to get involved with the situation in Chicago and will use his knowledge as an inside man to make good with the agency.

Nucky is already got himself a new squeeze on the side (which really isn't surprising at all) while Margaret has a new crusade. I look forward to see how that all plays out.

Really, the only bad thing about this episode was the severe lack of Chalky White.

I dont think Van Alden would be forgiven for murdering a partner and right now he is on the wrong side in the Chicago situation. I did however order and iron from him, what a great device.

Well, Van Alden's partner was corrupt and working for Nucky. But I doubt that'll ever get out now.
