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.

Very enjoyable series. The trials and tribulations of Nucky Thompson, his family and cohorts is always great to watch. Not as good as the first two series but if you're a fan of the show you'll enjoy this series.

Brilliant result getting this several month's earlier than the physical version is sold. Amazon have really upped their game where "Lovefilm" is concerned. The film's are much more "sort after" titles and the inclusion of 5.1 Dolby Digital is very welcomed. As for "Boardwalk Empire", it's one of the finest series available as far as I'm concerned. (It seems HBO can do no wrong). Well done Amazon for including the "Prime" service with the "Lovefilm" package, it's a stroke of genius on your part.

Every scene in this show is meticulously crafted. The casting is impeccable. Though good from the start, Boardwalk Empire really hit its stride in series 3 - and series 4 is the best yet. Breaking Bad, True Detective, and this are the 3 best shows of the 21st century thus far. Brilliant.

This really is the best gangster series ever produced. The storyline, the impeccable acting, the great mix of bloodshed, drama, beautiful women, social issues of the time, comic moments and unbelievable quality of production make this a series not to be missed. Once you watch one show, you're hooked forever!
