Boardwalk Empire Season 4 - Episode 2 Review

Sadé Green reviews the second episode of Boardwalk Empire season 4....

The beauty of the slow and brooding Boardwalk Empire is that it doesn't rely on ridiculous story lines that fizzle out in one of two episodes. Every main arc is carefully constructed and well thought out and in 'Resignation', the foundations for some very exciting story lines have been set. With the introduction of the mesmerising Jeffrey Wright as Dr. Valentin Narcisse, this weeks episode focused largely on character development – or at least that times are changing for some of our favourites.

'Resignation' thankfully begins with the magnificent Nelson Van Alden/George Mueller (Michael Shannon). Missing our re-acquaintance with the ex-prohibition agent in episode 1, this is a welcome return. Van Alden is delivering flowers (or punches, depending on what was ordered) for Dean O'Banion (Arron Shiver), the florist/gangster that we met in Season 3. O'Banion recognises Van Alden has got

Recap: ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ Season 4, Episode 2, ‘Resignation’
The point has been made, “Boardwalk Empire” can be a deliberately paced show, but on tonight's episode “Resignation,” it appears at least one of the fourth season’s key elements is in place. That would be, Dr. Valentin Narcisse (Jeffrey Wright), the brewing antagonist, whose striking demeanor and decisive words cut to the core of every character. Narcisse, at the very least, would make a worthy adversary for any character on this show. Conspicuously absent from the Season 4 opener, as Terence Winter and his writing crew are likely well aware, former FBI agent Nelson Van Alden turned muscle for the Chicago Gangs under the assumed name George Muller (Michael Shannon), is front and center this week. He’s an errand boy, but one that Northside Chi-town gangster Dean O’Banion (Arron Shiver) recognizes has a brain. Mueller delivers flowers from O’Banion’s shop, but also puts down a beating

Boardwalk Empire Season 3: Spoilers for November Episodes

Nucky Thompson has impressively wielded his extensive power and resources throughout the run of Boardwalk Empire. Though he may have only embraced his "full gangster" recently, Thompson has proven to be quite adept at political maneuvering and rallying the troops to vanquish whatever enemy dared to threaten his position as King of Atlantic City. However, now that he's facing someone as violent and dangerous as Gyp Rosetti, Nucky can't rely on the long-con anymore; he can't wait for the right moment to strike or Gyp will have gotten too powerful to take down.

But is it already too late?

Below are the dates, episode names, episode descriptions, and repeat airings for the next four episodes of Boardwalk Empire's third season.

Sunday, November 4th - "Pony"

In Boardwalk Empire We Trust

  • Boomtron
Finally. Finally, finally, finally, Boardwalk Empire season 3 has arrived, and not a moment too soon. After watching the premiere episode last night (and again this morning), I can honestly tell you that I have a few reservations about this coming season, but I can also tell you that that’s probably just simple nerves. If I can trust in anything in this world, it’s that Boardwalk Empire is the best show currently on television (even if Boss is giving it much competition).

Before we go any further, it would be rude of me not to warn you that spoilers lay ahead, not just for the season 3 premiere, but also possibly for the whole season (historical spoilers, if you will). So if you haven’t watched the episode yet, best bookmark this page for later.

The events of last season were awfully tumultuous, but they also had a natural progression.

TV Review: HBO’s ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Returns with Most Intense Season Premiere Yet

Chicago – “Ordinary men avoid trouble. Extraordinary men turn it to their advantage.” Isn’t that line from the second episode of the third season of “Boardwalk Empire,” returning tonight, September 16, 2012 on HBO, really at the core of everything we know about Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and the people that play in his circle of violence? Nucky doesn’t run from trouble. He faces it head on. And with that comes great reward but also great risk. And great television.

Television Rating: 4.5/5.0

The stakes seem higher at the start of season three, almost as if the loss of Jimmy has opened something darker, more malevolent in Jersey. Not that Jimmy was an angel on Nucky’s shoulder by any stretch but he did sometimes serve as a check and balance in the Thompson regime. At the start of season three, Nucky seems nearly bored by his own power, sleeping with a
