    Recap: Nucky & Gyp Rosetti Seemed Poised For A Showdown In ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Episode 3 'Bone For Tuna'

    Does TV Play Up the Gritty Past as a Kind of Guilty Pleasure?

    "Copper," BBC America's new original series, starts with a grimy, not-yet-pubescent urchin girl offering protagonist Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) sex as thanks for the hard-boiled egg he tossed her way. Last week's episode of AMC's "Hell on Wheels" found a man be...
