‘Boardwalk Empire’ Review: “Cuanto”

HBO
HBO

The fifth and final season of 'Boardwalk Empire' seems to have established a pattern within a pattern, where everything feels so scattered. The plot threads are dangling and frayed and yet, slowly a couple of threads find their way together before an abrupt and violent tug jerks yet a couple more into position by episode's end. This season more than any other feels elusive in meaning -- as cold and distant as Nucky himself -- and at the same time, it all reads a bit on the nose.

‘Boardwalk Empire’ Review: “The Good Listener”

HBO
HBO

Crime just isn't what it used to be. That's something that 'Boardwalk Empire' has perhaps ruminated on since the beginning, but something that has become more and more glaring with each passing season, with the introduction of foils and central conflicts for Nucky Thompson and the other major criminal players in New York and Chicago to navigate. Perhaps the reason why the fifth and final season has thus far felt as disorienting as the opening shot of "The Good Listener" is that there's no real singular conflict or thread running through it all. In the vernacular of 'The Big Lebowski,' there's no rug to tie this room together, man.

‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season Premiere Review: “Golden Days for Boys and Girls”

Boardwalk Empire Golden Days for Boys and Girls
HBO

'Boardwalk Empire' returns for its fifth and final season, with a time jump that takes us forward seven years to 1931. While some things and places have indeed changed, much of the first hour is merely arranging the table for the final eight episodes, while also drawing bridges: a bridge between Nucky's various pasts and present, and narrative bridges between what was, what is, and what has to be; there's also a nice bit of thematic tissue in the episode's latter half that connects the series to 'The Sopranos,' as we witness the dawn of a new Italian mafia era back in New York.
