‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 4 Finale Recap: “Farewell Daddy Blues”

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Nucky Thompson is the only character to walk out of Season 4 relatively unscathed. Not because he’s the protagonist; all that’s required for Nucky to fill that particular role is to stay alive through the series finale. Rather, it’s that our antihero simply doesn’t have a lot to lose. This season’s been toying around with its main character’s fundamental emptiness for a while: Nucky’s got no family, no friends (only partners!), and no real reason to keep expanding his already substantial empire. It’s easy for him to decide he wants out. If only this show’s other characters were so lucky. … Read More

‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 4, Episode 11 Recap: “Havre de Grace”

If there’s one thing Atlantic City emphatically is not, it’s a place where dreams come true. Whether you’re Gillian, Chalky, or just a kingpin who wants to import booze and sell heroin in peace, plans have a nasty habit of crashing and burning on this show. Not that it’s anyone’s fault but the characters’ own: organized crime rarely pays off in the long run, and as we learn in “Havre de Grace,” neither does first-degree murder. Unless something insane happens in next week’s finale, we’ve probably seen the last of Gillian Darmody for a good, long while. … Read More

40 Things You Didn’t Know About Martin Scorsese

Happy birthday to tireless filmmaker and living legend, Martin Scorsese. Here’s hoping we can all be as productive and creative in our 70s. The director will see his biopic about stock swindler and motivational speaker Jordan Belfort, The Wolf of Wall Street, hit theaters on December 25, and he’s currently filming a documentary about former President Bill Clinton. And let’s not forget that Sinatra biopic in the works, an adaptation of Shūsaku Endō’s 1966 novel, Silence, and his ongoing work as executive producer for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. While we have an idea of what the future holds for Scorsese, there are a lot of fascinating details about his past that we wanted to share with you in honor of the director’s birthday … Read More

‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 4 Episode 10 Recap: “White Horse Pike”

Yet another episode in which Boardwalk completely ignored all but its most interesting subplots, and man, does it show. Better yet, with the exception of Margaret and Rothstein’s strange encounter, almost every storyline has been helpfully corkscrewed together just in time for all-out war between Nucky and Narcisse. Willy’s family initiation, Eli’s betrayal to the feds, Lucky’s heroin, even the Florida gambit — it’s all accounted for, and it’s a welcome reassurance that we can trust the Boardwalk writers to choreograph a season exceptionally well, no matter how slow its start. … Read More
