Ok, so now that BB is over, I'm turning my attention over to this show. I havent seen any of this new season yet and I'm planning to catch up this week. How's it been so far? I'm curious to see how they're gonna top Gyp Rosetti from last year.

I really like it but sometimes I struggle with the length of the episodes.

When my mind switches off, I just don't care and my attention goes elsewhere.

I's still a completely solid show, but this season has been a slow burn. It just doesn't feel like this season's main plot has started yet, but this season may just be a series of smaller plots. Last year had a clear antagonist and goal.

I'm loving the fact that Eddie is sick of Nucky's ****. Some of their scenes in this season so far have been really funny.

It looks like there's going to be some interesting stuff next week but I agree it's been pretty ho-hum. The main things have been the betrayal of Chalky's right hand man and the seeds being planted for Nucky's downfall in the future.

The one thing I'm getting tired of is Van Alden being such a p***y. He was pretty bad ass during S1 but has done a 180 ever since.

I'm also shocked that Margaret has been so absent this far in.

Yeah, it was definitely my favorite episode of the new season so far. The Capones were fun too.

I'm not. Seems to me that their story line has run its course. As much as I liked them together it's all over now.

AR, Capones, and 'FBI Begins' have been great...

Don't miss Margaret at all.

I've had some slight issues with this season but that probably comes from the fact that i've been catching BE almost immediately after I've caught the last BB episode. The shows have two very different approaches to telling the story especially with pace.

I'll probably appreciate them more now without that direct comparison.

Speaking of which; why is Kelly MacDonald still listed in the opening credits?

What do you mean no Richard? Is his storyline finished?

Van Alden is the best character and they just made his plotline way interesting.

Curious to see how Nucky reacts and if Eddie wrote him a letter

I know, right? I was like -- don't do it! On the other hand, how tall was that building? I didn't think it was high enough to ensure a proper result....

I was wondering that myself, though I only noticed it just this time. Typo on the credits?

I'm not really shocked by that ending. They could have dragged it out for the rest of the season as he continued to feed info to the Feds but it would probably only end with the same result anyway.

Like, so much.
He's been such a wuss. I'm waiting for the bad assery to come out of him again like it did with the iron scene but for good this time. It's beyond frustrating to see him act like the cowardly lion all the time.

In the promo it was mentioned that an informant "was dead", so I can only assume that was Eddie.
