That probably will the only episode that I will comment on this TV show, because it has been commented yet. This episode is really terrific, especially the Al Capone's character performance. I now the actor, a British one, whose character reminds us Joe Pesci's ones in the Marty Scorcese's features such as GOOD FELLAS and CASINO. A rough, brutal, most violent guy who is so sensitive, so touching with his fragile son and also friend, badly beaten by the Irish gangster in the bar. Watch put this scene when Capone destroys the Irish Hood, look out for this outstanding sequence, where Capone uses this brutal behaviour to get revenge over his son himself beaten by his school comrades... But besides this, I guess that in this kind of TV show, you watch thousand of things that you would never see in movies. The way, for instance, the characters have to come and die so rapidly. You find this only in series. And I love that.

In these first couple of episodes Nucky seems to be lost even picking
up a mistress on the side. The deaf son is back and his dad wants him
to be Tuff again. Nucky comes in with a news headline ripped from the
top and makes the decision to sell behind closed door to a client.
After Gip pored gasoline on a police officer he has some questions to
ask. When someone comes to house it's a kid that Owen beats up. Nucky
decides to let the kid go but in come another gang and he, Owen and the
kid must hide down below. When someone comes down they are almost
found. We also get a big guy beat up in a bar while some of Nucky's
liquor gets taken. Back in New York and Lucky's business is going OK.
Al asks his son to hit him as he try's to get him tougher as he feels
he is too weak. While trying to promote the hospital Margaret runs into
someone she knows and meets her husband. Lucky goes to meet with
someone and the conversation is half Italian and English talking about
who owns what area to sell. Al gets into a bar fight and kills the guy
only to leave money bis around the dead body. Finally after what seemed
like forever the guys get to leave the basement. The kid seemed to be
accepted by Nucky but then he shoot him in the back of the head
surprising Owen he did not let him live. Eli try's to worn the guys but
they do not listen to him and go straight into the ambush but all we
hear is sounds of guns being fired in the background. Al then sings a
song to his deaf child which makes for the ending song of the episode
which includes shoots of two brothers coming together for mutual cost
and Margaret reading the newspaper. Boring episode as these first
episodes have been.
EPISODE GRADE: C+ (MVP: Steve Buscemi)
