    'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4 Will Get The Talents Of 'The Wire' Writers Dennis Lehane & George Pelecanos

    “Boardwalk Empire” is set to air its third season finale on Sunday, and very early on in the third season’s run it was announced that HBO had renewed the show for a fourth season. Showrunner Terrence Winter seems to have a very definite roadmap in terms of the story he wants to tell on the show, and...

    Nucky Thompson Finds Out Who His Real Friends Are In Boardwalk Empire's Best Episode This Season [Episode #11, 'Two Imposters']

    We won’t look this gift horse in the mouth too much, but “Boardwalk Empire” Season 3 went from a passive slow walk to a mild trot, then finally to an explosive gallop late in the game. Patient and sometimes meandering, the first half of the season took a while to get cooking, but the gloves are now ...

    What’s In The Box? ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Takes A Page From The ‘Se7en’ Playbook In Episode #10, ‘A Man, A Plan...’

    Bookended by images of whiskey bottles washing up on the shoreline like dead soldiers, perhaps this poetic image was fitting for the antepenultimate episode of “Boardwalk Empire” number ten, “A Man, A Plan...” where all contrivances went astray.

    Jack Huston on Playing 'Boardwalk Empire' Masked Fan Favorite Richard Harrow and Making Peace With the Possibility of Getting Killed Off

    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 ...

    On The Verge Of War, Nucky’s Allies Abandon Him In 'Boardwalk Empire' (Episode 9, 'The Milkmaid's Lot')

    In case you missed last week's "Boardwalk Empire" episode, "The Pony," well things concluded with a bang. Literally. In a plot to kill rival bootleggers Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg) and Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza), Italian gangster Gyp Rosetti (Bobby Cannav...

    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. Shockingly killed off at the end of season 2 by his mentor and only real father figure Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) as ...

    Family Takes Center Stage In ‘Boardwalk Empire’s ‘Sunday Best’ (Season 3, Episode #7)

    The midway point of “Boardwalk Empire” suddenly came explosively alive, especially in the fifth episode, “You’d Be Surprised.” An unsuccessful assassination was attempted on the hostile and unpredictably bad-for-business gangster Gyp Rosetti (Bobby Cannavale) by Nucky T...

    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. Atlantic City bootlegging kingpin Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) came to Jesus with his New York counterpart Arnold Ro...

    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 ...
