Goofs

The floating bottles in the opening credits are modern plastic bottles with plastic twist off caps. Probably intentional to avoid adding broken glass to the beach other than the one broken one against the pier. Bottles in the show are glass with smooth necks and corks. See more »

Nucky is Back in the Swing ***/2
25 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nucky is back in full swing. The episode, a good one, has a problem of trying to relate too many intricate details woven into one fabric.

The KKK in N.J. shooting at blacks working in the illegal alcohol business? It's a little too hard to fathom, though believable.

Mrs. Schroeder's child never apparently forgot the fire that Nucky made in the house. Sister Bernice disciplines him when he is caught playing with matches in a school closet. Nothing like old fashioned discipline as the good Sister leads the way, and shows that she is aware of the mother's infidelity with Mr. Johnson.

Jimmy as a family man is a little hard to take and the Buscemi character has to wonder what's going on when he is locked up for election fraud. Election fraud? We can certainly do better than this. Although, they eventually got Capone for tax evasion.
