    I love Boardwalk Empire, and while I agree that this season has had its struggles, the show is still one of the best shows on television. I am so glad it has been renewed for a fourth season! I just hope that viewership increases–there are so few shows of this quality on TV today.

    Boardwalk Empire is a great, realistic and gritty take on tge mobster mafioso era of Atlantic City it shows the “Original Gangsters” before the famous ones like Al Capone and Lucky Luciano, it shows their climb and journey to the top of the mad food chain that is the Mobster life. Its a great show filled with Love, Betrayal, Envy, Lust, Hate, Pride, Vanity and its topped off with enough chills, thrills and twists that impress even the likes of Shakespeare. This show is definitely worthy for another 2-3 great more seasons!

  4. DG says

    Seriously is this even a debate? If it doesn’t stay on HBO until it’s original planned end date then I refuse to watch anything HBO puts out again. OK maybe not but myself and many, many people in the world will be furrrious. KEEP.
