    Since his first appearance halfway through season one of "Boardwalk Empire," Jack Huston's disfigured Richard Harrow has been a fan favorite. Whether its the way his loyalty to Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt) has led him to take care of the man's son Tommy in the wake of his shocking ...

    In case you missed last week's "Boardwalk Empire" episode, "The Pony," well things concluded with a bang. Literally.

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Builds Up To An Explosive Finale In Episode #8, 'The Pony'

    "Jimmy deserved better than this," Richard Harrow (Jack Huston) says with disgust. The "funeral" for Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt) is equal parts sham, disgrace and an utter joke.

    Recap: Nucky Makes An Unlikely Offer At Mid-Point Of 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 3

    The one episode we take off and stuff happens. Apologies for being gone last weekend for "You'd Be Surprised," but we assume you'll live. In last week's episode sparks finally flew.

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Continues To Spin Its Wheels With 'Blue Bell Boy'

    In retrospect, perhaps we’ve been too generous about the slow pace of “Boardwalk Empire” season three. After all, even one of our comrades at IndieWIRE, Anne Thompson, said she was dismayed at HBO’s decision to renew the show for a fourth season considering the molasses like rhythm of season three s...

    HBO Renews 'Boardwalk Empire' for Fourth Season: Why?

    Judging from the first four episodes of "Boardwalk Empire" Season Three, I cannot commend HBO for renewing the series for a fourth season. HBO is looking at the fact that the first two episodes of its third season averaged 2.5 million viewers, somewhat down from the Season Two finale of 3 ...

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

    While the opening two episodes of season three of “Boardwalk Empire” have been characteristically languid, the drama of this season seems to be finally coalescing; albeit still at a rather leisurely pace. But the character-driven show has always been more interested in the arcs and perso...
