Boardwalk Empire, considered

blog into mystery


Boardwalk Empire is coming to a close tonight, and it seems like it’s going before its time. The fast-forwarded plot of this last truncated season has felt perfunctory, like someone being hooked from an awards show stage before they can finish thanking everyone on their list. And that may very well be the case, why we’ve been rocketed out of the Roaring Twenties and into the Great Depression on the eve of Prohibition’s repeal. It might be that all the available HBO production money is being vacuumed up by the wildly successful Game of Thrones, and a more intellectual critical darling like Empire, which has never enjoyed as wide an audience, has drawn the short budgetary straw.

But like i said before, the epicness quotient is way up, especially after they stole that Quinjet and had the firefight on the tarmac. Lets keep it moving, keep it fast and loose. But seriously…..The team….It needs some backup.
