Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

I'm still here.

I thought Richard might almost buy it for a moment there.

I like Chalky so I've taken a dislike to Dr. Narcise or whatever his name is.

Looks like it could get messy in Florida. The sight of that guy with a machete in his head was a bit cringe inducing.

Im watching but this season is not grabbing me so far. Probably because I'm watching Breaking Bad then this, so my head is in Breaking Bad mode.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

Another great episode. Doesn't surprise me one bit that Dr. Narcise is going to try to divide and conquer Chalky. Hopefully, Chalky will see it coming and put the bastard in his place, but I worry.

I'm sad, yet unsurprised, that Richard is living his sister already but I suppose he can't stay away from the main action forever. I wonder where he'll go now.

Still no Margaret, but at least she gets a tangential mention via Teddy. I think this is the longest absence we've seen of the character the whole show.

Is Kelly McDonald pregnant perhaps? maybe that would explain her absence from the show, that or another project that got in the way of the shooting schedule.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

My guess is that the writers chose this path and want to reintroduce her gradually which is a good call. It'd be pretty lame if she immediately returned.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

All the characters are really spread out this season. This last episode sure had a creepy vibe all over it. More so than usual. I actually found the college kid's storyline the most compelling.
There is never enough Van Alden.

Van Alden's life really hasn't changed that much. He just swapped one Enforcer job for another, except now he has a hotter and kinkier wife.

True, but Van Aldens' life is so intense and weird. Nucky's life is pretty boring these days, compared to Van Aldens.

Van Alden's life is likely to get more intense. This is 1924, I believe, O'Banion didn't have the best of years in '24, historically speaking.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

I have a feeling that Van Alden will unwillingly end up working for Capone somehow. In their last confrontation, you could see how uncomfortable he was just being around him. Plus, it would make a rather interesting character arc, going from an agent to actually working for somebody in a business he originally was trying to eradicate. Just that prospect alone probably makes him uncomfortable, and I could see it in their last confrontation.

Most people likely feel uncomfortable around Al. He's a real hothead! I was admiring how excellent the casting was by comparing him to his real life pictures on Wikipedia.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

You know, Jeffrey Wright's character and his overtly fake politeness and pretense has the tendency to annoy the heck out of me. But maybe it's supposed to be this way. I guess Chalky would just love to punch the guy in the face (and so would I ).

Well, obviously I meant more in terms of his moral character thrust into a situation of doing illegal business, but of course, doing it with Al will increase it tenfold, I can only imagine.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

This show is making me paranoid. As soon as Eddie deviated from what Nucky told him to do I thought there'd be trouble...and there is.

I've taken a real dislike to Dr. Narcisse whom I think is a real hypocritical piece of shit. I really hope Chalky gets a whiff of what's going on and promptly stomps this guy.

Rothstein would have been smarter to have not played poker with Nucky.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

I, too, feared for Eddie the moment he deviated from Nucky's instructions. I was worried he would die, but being taken in by Hoover's goons is almost just as bad.

I was quite surprised by Rothstein's behavior in this episode because it was a side of him we haven't seen, but I like the twist of Nucky deciding to dump Rothstein's ass and immediately making a deal with Meyer instead.

I loved the adventures of Van Alden and the Capone Brothers. If they ever want to do a spin-off, this is what they should focus on. Or Richard Takes on the World. Either one. Speaking of which, no Richard this week but I guess he's still on the road.

Also, still no Margaret. Huh.
