BOARDWALK EMPIRE's 4th season adds even more brutal violence (yes, it was possible) and brilliant character-study with several supporting cast dominating screen-time (Chalky, Agent Jim, Mr. Purnsley, Will Thompson and the twitchy Dr. Narcisse). Even so, Steve Buscemi remains the #1 reason to follow the show religiously. Lots of fun time is spent in Florida and, of course, in Chicago focusing on the rise of Al Capone (A role and accent mastered by British actor, Stephen Graham).

Overall, the finest gift of the EMPIRE is its dedication to realistic-fiction with spot-on set-pieces, costumes and exquisite jazz along with our anti-heroes believable story-lines over the years. BOARDWALK is a gorgeous, potent, harrowing concoction of the bleak, gang-land 20's. To the lost . . .

The background theme in Season Four is the rise of black gangsters and the power of the FBI. Nucky owes Chalky White a big favour for saving his life in Season Three which he repays by gifting the Onyx Club to him. Chalky comes into contact with a sinister Harlem gangster called Narcisse who uses Marcus Garvey's Universal Negro Improvement Association as a front for his activities. He is pseudo-religious and rather than supporting the fight for social, political and economic freedom for black Americans he undermines it with hard drugs. The conflict between White and Narcisse runs through the entire season and drags Nucky into choosing sides.
Nucky expands his bootlegging operation into bringing up rum from Florida and he starts an affair with Sally who runs a bar in the alligator infested swamps. Margaret who terminated their marriage turns up in New York and meets an old friend.
Gillian has finally lost any custody or contact with young Tommy Darmody after a hearing finds she ran a bordello and she sinks deeper into desperation but a saviour appears. Richard Harrow suffers a crisis of confidence, as he finds he can no longer kill with impunity, but he too finds someone.
Van Alden just wants to be a family man in Chicago but gets caught between the ruthless O'Banion gang and the more ruthless Capones and must decide between them.
All the while, as the various plots unwind the Bureau of Investigation (an early incarnation of the FBI) and its new Controller Hoover, is looking at the rise of black power and the possibility that there is organised crime in America. They must choose one of these "threats" to America to concentrate their attention.

I never watch this on TV, cant stand the continual "breaks" for the adverts. I just wait for the series to come out on DVD and then watch it in great three hour sessions. Cant wait for the next series 5 and sad to know it will be the last.

This has to be up there as one on the best ever tv series, the stories are addictive and draws the viewer in from the very first episode, so much better than recent cinema offerings, no cgi just pure story telling at its finest. The sets, costumes, performances and period detail are nothing less than stunning. Can't wait for the fifth season!!!!

Bought the digital version on-line and was very disappointed with the quality. The series is great, but the purchase keeps grinding to a halt and quitting. Sometimes five or six times in an episode. Maddening. It's not a problem at this end - I've watched lots of series on Amazon Prime and never had this problem. I bought series 5 from Blinkbox, after trying to watch Amazon's series 4, and there was absolutely no problem with the Blinkbox product. The Amazon product is like trying to play a smeared disc, the way it kept stopping.

Nucky and the ritz are no more, a darker season with dr narcisse proving a slippery foe for chalky n his new club. More shenanigans from eli n son willie..the fbi involvement only clouds the people in this brilliant season 4. Enjoy

If I got this far with viewing the sets of series I must have a positive bias anyway. Roll on series 5 in early 2015. Have you heard the C.D. and mp3 downloads of the series soundtracks though. Marvelous, and there is a Christmas album out, styled to fit in with the Boardwalk Empire era. That is the best Christmas music collection ever released, ever, ever, ever, I kid you not.
