I agree that the shootout during the failed attempt to assassinate Gyp bore more than a passing resemblance to the shootout in Taxi Driver that made weird Travis Bickle a hero. I'm surprised I didn't think of it for myself because Taxi Driver is one of my all time favorite films and I watched my BD of it just a few weeks ago.

Thee "shooter" on Sunday's Nucky was the guy Rick captured and Shane killed at the end of last season's Walking Dead. He is still very annoying...

Last season (?) Nuck got him a gig or something or another and Eddie said he owed.

I feel the MArgret class thing is very similar to The Soprano's and the whole "spec" house venture. Its quite annoying
post #878 of 1447
The Women's Rights movement has always been a theme of this show from the 1st episode.

I like Margret's character...but I agree in that the class could be a sub-sub-plot instead of what it is.

More time should be spent on Ex-Agent Weird and The Masked Man...

He was also a semi-regular on Rescue Me.  He played Tommy Gavin's nephew, Damien.    He plays an excellent weasel.

Nucky continues to slip, yet comes up with a plan.

The phantom "Gyp" strikes as much terror as the real thing.....

Gillian Darmody buries James and seeks out a replacement?

Harrow makes a friend...

Looks like the War's a commin' based on the pre-view.....

He is getting more stupid as time goes on....

Does he really think he can put one over on the sharks in Washington?

This Margaret and the kids thing is getting really REALLY old.
A guy like Nucky is putting up with it?
Pleeeeeze.....rolleyes.gif

Kinda dumb storyline IMO.
OTOH, if Gillian called ME, I wouldn't exactly say no....biggrin.gif

Another boring episode! The season is starting to remind me of the last year of Deadwood.
post #883 of 1447
I have no issues with the storyline and character development. My only complaint is that the show is not 2 hour episodes! The whole thing with Gillian was a little creepy this week.

larry

Boardwalk Empire is Awesome...biggrin.gif

I did think last episode was the weakest one, but i have thoroughly enjoyed the rest of this season, although some seem to have complaints with episode 2.

Otherwise their has been killing in almost every episode, and story lines have been moving. I have not found it boring, save last episode.
post #886 of 1447
While it may be to much to expect the show to move at the rapid pace some of the earlier episodes of this season have, I can't figure out what last week contributed to the series. Other than the Washington double dealing, one could have skipped last week and really missed nothing. I'm getting to the point that I almost groan when the story moves to Margaret and her children. In addition, once Jimmy was out of the picture I can't figure out why Gillian is still around.

There are so many interesting characters and subplots in this show, which overall is quite remarkable, I guess I just get disgusted when characters that have served their purpose simply linger and aren't replaced with new ones. If Margaret and the kids moved to Mars would it really have any impact on the overall story? None I can see.

Margaret has a direct impact on Nucky and in the latest episode is probably going to get Slater killed too. In that sense she is important to the story as her role interacts with many of the main characters.

Van Alden on the other hand has really run his course. Unless the body dumping gets him involved in the main turf war there's very little reason for him to be in the show.

Good point.
I think most of us simply can't stand her on a personal level.wink.gif

I believe that is exactly where his character is going...

It no longer is, unless you get off on seeing a man's fat ass as he mounts a woman or an occasional killing. At this moment the political story is all that's keeping me watching.

Honestly I wouldn't fixate on scenes like this...LOL.

I remember more of the plot, acting, character development and attention to historical accurracy.

Not to mention the action, tension and STORY........

so who started the fire in the greenhouse?...I'm not sure they answered it directly...did Owen really find a vagrant or did he just say that to make Margaret feel safe?...did Margaret's son do it?...seems really strange that he was caught at his neighbor's house with matches and lighter fluid...was it really a gypsy that Margaret's son said he saw?...I'm confused
post #892 of 1447
I suspect Jr. torched the greenhouse and made up the gypsy. Owen may have found a vagrant, but any connection to fire isn't clear. In any event we can't be 100% sure one way or another.

Margaret and her kids will hopefully start taking up far less on screen time. They haven't even scratched the surface of Rothstein's or Capone's background. I'd much rather see Rosetti's conversation with his boss than see Jr. play with matches. Yecch!

I took it that the son is becoming a psychopath and he was responsible for the fires. I'm either expecting him to set fire to his sister and blame it on the "gypsy" or knife a major character at some point.

There's an argument of nurture/nature here, but either way I think the son is going to become a problematic and violent story point sometime.

i don't understand why Rosetti wasn't in this week's episode at all, especially how the previous one ended

I think setting his sister on fire is a little too hardcore even for HBO biggrin.gif ...I do expect him to use the knife on someone though (hopefully his Mom biggrin.gif)

Terence Winter is a student of the David Chase school of drama...follow up a jam packed action episode with a slow character study one...build things up and then slow down...Sopranos used to do that with Tony's dream episodes which would usually follow a major action/death episode

In season 1 (I think?) didn't Nucky set fire to his parents old house right in front of the kid? And didn't the kid get caught playing with matches at school in season 2? Seems ol' Margaret is in denial about many things...this latest one just being a little closer to home then the rest of the things she's *ignoring*.....

Boy's got some issues...and a track record....so I'm guessing he's GUILTY!

Well remembered! I'm going to take your word for it because it sounds very familiar.
