Sunday's Best is truly the best of season 3
NelsonVanAlden28 October 2012
First off, I want to respond to the review from Masonic Shine. You get it 1 star out of 10, yet at the bottom of your review you gave it 3 out of 10. You are clearly trying to ruin the ratings of the show. It's getting old.

As for the show. Sunday's Best was truly the best episode of season 3. This is the type of character development that makes me appreciate this show. You don't get many shows that can do it like Boardwalk does.

Season 3 had be somewhat disappointing to some fans, but this one came back strong. This is what I think a lot of the fans of the series had been waiting for. I am very excited to see the rest of the season. This episode set it up well. Very strong performances tonight from Nucky and Margaret. Loved seeing Richard get a lot of screen time as well.

10 out of 10. Best show on TV.

Unreal, how this show has gone down the tubes... From Boardwalk to BOREDwalk Empire
MasonicShine28 October 2012
Its an absolute shame how downhill this season is going, its to the point where its almost no saving it at this point, the characters are ALL 1 dimensional with the exception of a few, and those characters are basically never shown.

Seems this is either due to the lack of funding or writing or a combination of both.

Not sure how season 4, if there truly is one, ever gets saved, as it will most likely be the last one and BWE might go down in the history books as "one of those shows that had great promise".

3 points out of 10.
