Boardwalk Empire is great, possibly my favorite show currently on. I don't think I've ever watched an episode that bored me. I hear its not the ratings blockbuster HBO wants it to be, but the show really in my opinion is in a league all its own.

Not with TV or movies. They need to grab me right away. I treat TV and movies like short stories. Every sentence needs to move the plot along. In novels it is different, because you lose yourself for hours and hours in a book. with TV shows, I only can give it one or two hours, and if it does not pique my interest by then, then what's the point? There's always something else to watch.

Look at Game of Thrones. They have to cut out maybe 80% of the books because TV does not allow for long exposition, narration, character study, etc. It all needs to be done quickly and fairly superficially. game of Thrones got me hooked right away.

Exactly the same for me, but I've read that it's gotten better and better so I'll try again.

Exactly. It's like Mad Men. Let it grow on you, then soon it becomes the new smack.

Yeah, with "Boardwalk" I never had to have it grow on me. I dig the 1920's era gangster stuff, enjoy the jazz music played throughout. Enjoy the whole look of the show. I know that "the look" can be interpreted as "pretty wrapping with nothing inside" sort of criticisms, I just never agreed with those that made criticisms of the show.

I had a bit of trouble getting into the story and have to admit I didn't really like the look of the show, but the main problem for me was Steve Buscemi, who I've always liked but for some reason really irritated me in the first couple of episodes. It's back on my rental list now, though.

I think I may have added also to my list of show topics I never want to watch again (cops, doctors, lawyers) , I added gangsters/mobsters a few years back. Sopranos was allright but not worth the years it took to watch it.

I'm watching Mad Men season 5 thanks to the NY Public Library and a rare useful use of my tax dollars. I'm nt sure if I'm going to finish it - its just a soap opera and the people are really less and less likeable, and its attempt at niche market is annoying.

it is indeed a soap opera. Just like Sopranos was. The 60's were nothing like what mad men portrays, unless you only look at history through the eyes of wealthy, secluded, news-ignorant white people in Manhattan.

have you guys noticed that no one on mad men listens to the great rock and roll brewing in 1966. 1967, 1968, and now 1969? Maybe someone should get Don Draper the first Sabbath album!

i don't know what you're seeing but i'm rerunning season 3 now and i love the anthropology of it all. to see how barbaric it was only a few decades ago: "sally, go watch tv!" and people getting sloshed constantly. and how they treated women.

and then it strikes me that we are all still very much like that and the future is going to look at us like a bunch of neanderthal beasts with little sense.

i enjoy that lots.

I still think that Mad Men serves as nostalgia TV for all the assholes who wish shit was still the same way.

that sounds bizarre but i suppose people like that exist. for me it's like watching the lions and hyenas in the nature channel.

Then you've clearly not seen season 5. Some of the best episodes focus on how Don is unable to adapt to new music. It also has probably the best use of a Beatles song in any tv show or film.

I have seen every episode. The Beatles thing was a toss-off. Don cannot adapt to ANY music. He seems to hate music.
