Boardwalk Empire Review: Fools Rush In

As for Margaret's baby @jayne that is a good question. I wonder if she could fake her interest in some make up sex with Nucky and claim the baby is his. all depends on how far along she is. As we've seen on the show the science and medicine behind childbirth are not widely discussed topics. I'm guessing Nucky could be fooled into thinking the baby is his especially if it is something he wants bad enough. He loves her children but I think he has always longed for a child of his own since he and his first wife lost theirs years ago. Remember back to season 1 and the pained look on Nucky's face when he stopped in front of the window where all the premature babies were being treated in incubators. We'll have to see of course. Very good question, thanks.

Boardwalk Empire Review: Fools Rush In

@Ashley R it was Masseria's men who killed Owen and I'm guessing the FBI agent too despite us not seeing his body up in NYC at the bath house. Gyp was busy down in Tabor Heights with his shipment coming in.

between the cast. Look up the clip of the gang on the Megan Mullaly show where Segel and NPH sing the confrontation song from Les Miserables. They were a bunch of relative unknowns save NPH but you could see the energy they shared. I just think some of that spark is gone and it is showing this season at times. But as I have said before, while I may be critical at times (which comes with the job)I am not even close to giving up on my beloved show.

@hummelchen I am glad you liked the episode so much. I wish I could have said the same. I have often defended HIMYM when it has seemed to swing and miss and I always try to look for the positives in each episode. Just like Marshall's eyes were opened to his stamp tramp ways though, the comments from the good people like yourself who write in with their thoughts each week has made me realize that perhaps I have been wearing the rose colored lenses too much. I have loved this show since it's inception so maybe that is why I, like others, am now critical of its decline. The cast is widely popular now and involved in many outside projects. Like an athlete who spreads themselves thin with endorsement deal commitments, commercials and alternate careers (see Shaq's rap career) I think it is inevitable that their performance is going to suffer on some level. This is why we see SNL cast members often leave when they get involved in movies. Shows like HIMYM rely heavily on chemistry between the cast.

WOW! I knew the overall opinion of this season has been low, but I was very surprised to see how negative the comments were. Maybe I was watching a different episode. Or maybe I had just had such a bad day capped off with waiting 4 hours in line for gas , that I was happy to be watching anything on TV. I have been very critical of the Eriksens this season, but I thought this week they finally gain resembled the couple we all have grown to love over the years. That paired with Barney coming unhinged and his exploits with Brover made for a pretty good episode in my book. Plus the added Brobin scenes. TY @joyeful for backing me on the best wingman ever comment. If I end up trashing next week's episode I'm sure you all will say I stink worse than "Dowisetrepla." I'll just have to wait and see I guess. Thanks for the comments though as always. I can understand your frustration but let's all see this through to the end. We've come this far.

@Tony I agree with your comment that Richard will become Tommy's guardian. I loved the scenes with the two of them last week. "I told you I have a sister?" "You need to fix your glasses." etc. I just posted a bunch of memes I made from this week's episode on out tumblr site. Check them out if you can. Its tumblr(dot)tvfanatic(dot)com

Boardwalk Empire Review: "Sunday Best"

(Previous comment continued) his draw with Masseria, but still was going to get whacked before he offered to kill all the Italian's enemies.
Loved the Nucky/Eli sit down. They finally got everything out on the table. Margaret tried to open up to June and all she could say was "you brought pineapple upside down cake."
Last but not even close to least, what an episode for Richard. Any time we get to see him scrap booking we win. He was dishing out death threats and defending damsels in distress all while asking God to keep him ever mindful of the needs of others. He is the man.

Thanks Carissa for filling in while Sandy and I tangled here in NYC. I finally got to see the episode and logon here to TVF. For those confused, I was without power and Carissa filled in. She doesn't watch the show on a regular basis, but did a commendable job I think. It was interesting to get an "outsider's" point of view on the show without the benefit of having seen prior episodes.
I thought this was one of the best episodes of the season thus far. I had had it with Gillian and her creepy incestuous ways, but she showed she is as cunning as she is twisted when she set up her Jimmy look-a-like so that she could have a body to produce and get the house in her name finally.
I also thought it was interesting to see Gyp in a new light. He was bullied and mocked at home by his mother and sisters. No wonder he is so sensitive to the apparent slights by others. Then he decks the priest and by the "grace of god" scrapes together enough change to make his draw with Masseria, but still was going to get whacked before he offered to kill all the Italian's enemies.

to first walk out on the wedding. Ted doesn't owe a dime. I, however, owe the show a lot for all the laughs its given me, but that doesn't mean I/we can't be critical as fans.

While I don't seem to be alone in my disappointment this week, for those who I am not seeing eye to eye with, allow me to clarify my feelings. The episode first off was not without merit. Barney's songs, as well as most of Robin's scenes were lauded by me above. Marshall and Lily are such a big part of this show for me though and I just haven't felt them this season yet like years past and certainly not this week. As a couple they are one of the most well scripted duos on TV. I have said this much time and again, which is why last night's episode let me down so. Each episode is not a stepping stone. There are most definitely filler episodes with no links to the mother plot, but some of which I rank in my top episodes in the show's amazing run. I of course know who Victoria is, but she has been reduced to a character I am not a fan of. Overnight she has gone from the woman Ted chased after to one he wants to push away. It seems awfully rushed. @Amie great point about Klaus being the one to first walk out on the wedding. Ted doesn't owe a dime. I, however, owe the show a lot for all the laughs its given me, but that doesn't mean I/we can't be critical as fans.
