Boardwalk is No Longer "Must See" TV
10 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a shame. I really loved this series. Into season 4, the magic was starting to fade. The first episode of season 5 continued the slow decline. This series continues to bleed out like one of its gangland-gunshot victims along a country road.

I will see it through to the end, but it has been a real disappointment. Nucky has no humor or passion any more. Chalky is the only interesting character I care about a bit. Too bad. I still enjoy the production quality and the clothes. I just do not care much about the characters any more. I just want prohibition to end and have this series end as well.
