a 7yr jump from last season is insane!

and there's only 8 eps this season? geeez

i understand its the final season but that's because i thought they had a plan to wrap up the story and not the attitude they seem to have of "oh no its the last season lets chop this up!"

I think this whole season has been underwhelming. The flashbacks they're showing should've introduced earlier in the series, not the last season. Especially with only 8 episodes, they need to focus on the present.

Chalky's ending was lame!

I enjoy these flashbacks because it brings Nucky and Gillian's story full circle. I was always wondering how Jimmy came about, so I enjoy it quite a bit. It's a shame they had to put that in during the final season with only 8 episodes, though.

I'm also loving all the screen time they're doing on The Commission. It'd be so awesome if HBO did a series on Al Capone and his rise, or a more in depth look at Luciano's rise to be the biggest crime boss in history.

Yea I agree with Chalky's ending. Was hoping he would go out with more of a bang.

That would actually be a pretty sweet series about Al Capone and Luciano. Maybe they're just trying to wrap up all of the more fictional stuff with Atlantic City?

I had no idea what happened in the real history of the prohibiiton, so I expected Nucky to use the stock funds he earned to buy Capone and his men to fuck up Luciano and Meyer lol

Commodore was such an asshole. Young Nucky should've shit in the guy's soup.

The season ended with a wimper. Fits the tone of the rest of the series. It did not leave me wanting more, again, just like the rest of the series.

the guy Nucky is based on was also brought up on tax evasion charges (which could probably last a season on its own) and died in his mid 80's at a seniors home in the late 1960's

Enoch L. Johnson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

so i was surprised they killed him in the show even though it was clear they were leading up to that this season

if they were willing to stray that much from the facts anyhow i'd rather see Nucky take out Luciano and Lansky too
