[TV] Boardwalk Empire


Despite a strong first episode this show soon devolves into but another uninspired and clueless character piece with plot threads being introduced and thrown away seemingly at random. It’s pretty apparent the creators never had a clear vision for where they wanted to take the story, and were just making stuff as they went.

I don’t think I’ll be watching further than the first season.

Positive: Negative:
A fascinating setting of Prohibition era in USA Plot keeps going in circles with threads introduced and thrown away almost at random
Some characters, especially the sleazy protagonist, are interesting Characters keep changing personalities and making weird decisions to suit the schizophrenic plot
No actual story, at least in the first season
