    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 5, Episode 2 ‘The Good Listener’

    “How do you do it? Work with people you can’t trust,” Nucky Thompson sneers disdainfully at an adversary. If criminals used to live by certain values in America, those codes are quickly eroding during the Depression. One might argue allegiances were never a sure thing in the criminal underworld, and...

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 3, 'Acres of Diamonds'

    Another day, another chess piece episode of "Boardwalk Empire," a writing epidemic/phenomenon endemic to long form television of late and arguably one that affected last night's penultimate episode of "Breaking Bad" as well. A bridge building type of narrative, the worst example of "chess piece" wri...

    'Boardwalk Empire' Star Shea Whigham Latest To Walk On The Set Of Terrence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups'

    Here's how we imagine Shea Whigham managed to snag a role that may or may not end up being in the final cut of Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups" when it gets released in....oh, let's say 2015.
