Atlantic City, 1921. In a city whose fortunes have soared in the wake of Prohibition, Nucky Thompson is paying a steep price for wielding ultimate power in “the world's playground.” Steve Buscemi returns as Nucky in Season 2 of this hit HBO drama series that follows the continued rise of organized crime at the dawn of Prohibition. Though the 1920 election he successfully rigged is over, Nucky finds himself the target of a federal investigation for vote tampering--and an insurrection by those he counted among his closest allies. All the while, top mobsters like Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky and Al Capone wait in the wings, looking for the chance to grab a bigger piece of Nucky's pie. Michael Pitt, Kelly Macdonald and Michael Shannon co-star.

If you have seen the excellent first series and want to know can the quality be maintained the simple answer is "yes". By the end of series 2 some of the characters have developed in the most unexpected of ways. While the whole series hangs on the shoulders of the central character of "Nucky" Thompson (played by Stephen Buscemi) it's probably Jimmy's character arc that steals series 2. I won't say much except to say that you can almost feel the weight of power behind those doe eyes of his and the pay-off is epic.
More time is spent with Richard the war veteran with only half a face- my favourite character- such a sad and yet stoic individual and when the Klu Klux Klan attack Chalky White's boot legging operation you know vengeance will arrive sooner or later. So you have a number of key characters with really interesting story arcs that the series give time to breath. From Margaret Schroeder's conflicted conscience to Agent Nelson's continuing domestic issues getting in the way of his divinely inspired work enforcing prohibition.
The period detail is as always excellent and the way it brings in the larger historical picture, while never becoming a lecture is impressive."The Sopranos with spats" is a glib summary but an apt one and like the Sopranos this maintains the quality while having the bravery to develop into new and unexpected areas.
It's all good to the last drop.
Boardwalk Empire Season 2 is fantastic and a mush watch series! Get your hands on it as soon as possible! This program just gets better and better with each episode and with HBO having just announce that they will renew it for a 3rd season, things can only get better...
WARNING: You need to have watched Season 1 in order to have any idea about the goings on in Season 2
The season starts in 1921 Jimmy, Eli and the Commodore are moving to unseat Nucky from power, Margret is now living with Nucky, However she soon turns her head when Owen Sleater, who has come from Ireland to work for Nucky turns up. We learn more about her back story when she visits family in New York.
Nelson is living with Lucy this season she is pregnant with his child, so Nelson has to hide her away from the world and his wife!!. Once again Michael Shannon Is just amazing this season he really plays this part with such depth and muted conviction that you wonder where this actor could be in a few years time.
Jimmy's character really plays out this season we see more of the tortured soul side of him and Michael Pitt does a sterling job, his strained relationship between his wife, mother and father are at times very uncomfortable viewing one sequence with Gillian in-particular goes extremely close to the edge, BUT you need to see this as you then understand Jimmy more thoroughly and get why he is the way he is. In my review for season 1 I wrote about Gillian Darmody "and let's just say that is one hell of a twisted mother he has... Creepy!!" NOTHING could prepare me for what happened in the penultimate episode.
Richard Harrow gets more screen time which I was glad about I like the character a lot. Also Chalky White is in this season more and is fantastic.
There is gambling, illegal alcohol, Drug use, sex, violence, gangsters and even the KKK!. A gripping season from start to finish. And just as you think nothing can top that penultimate episode the finale just goes up another notch. One things for sure Season 3 has a monumental task of living up to this. OUTSTANDING!
With rich and superbly scripted characters such as Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), Margaret Schroeder ( Kelly MacDonald), Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt), Chalky White (Michael Kenneth Williams) and Nelson Van Alden (Michael Shannon), season 2 immediately promises us that it will expand and develop so intricately and beautifully, you'll not want to miss anything. The character arcs are more detailed and we really get to see just how flawed these characters really are and we see them develop into people almost unrecognisable, save for their names. Of course, no progressing HBO production is complete without the addition of even more characters, and this is where the darkly disturbing character of Manny Horvitz comes in. Portrayed brilliantly by William Forsythe, this Jewish crime boss is just a nasty piece of work that viewers will love to hate. And finally, we also get treated to the sweetly depressing story of Richard Harrow (Jack Huston), a disfigured and clearly depressed war veteran who struggles throughout the entire season to deal with his disfigurement and his prominent exposure to the other characters. This very character-driven piece culminates explosively, leaving so many ends untied that the viewer may just have a nervous breakdown from excessive wanting.
'The Sopranos in spats' is the closest description given to Boardwalk Empire, we see all sides of life, from personal, compassionate and emotionally draining family affairs, to the harsh, brutal and disgustingly greedy side of business.Read more ›
