Enter Gyp Rosetti, a psychotic mobster quick to take offence. (Even wishing him good luck can provoke a speedy, painful demise.) In church he harangues Christ on the cross when all does not go his way, for good measure thumping the priest as he leaves. Now he intends to rule Atlantic City, which is bad news indeed for Nucky Thompson.

Arguably this is the most powerful season yet, with twelve episodes ever intensifying their grip - scriptwriters and directors adept at springing major surprises. As always, the cast is terrific. Steve Buscemi's Nucky veers from the heights to complete vulnerability, deserted by allies who regard him a risk.

This is by no means a one man show, all concerned with memorable moments. Relish, for instance, when bullied Nelson literally turns the tables, and when disfigured Richard heroically determines to rescue his young friend.

Not all is violence (although it does tend to dominate). Note the stylish extravagance of the New Year's Eve party, sundry evolving family emotions depicted in the Easter Day episode. Also to be savoured are the one-liners. (Example? Nucky thrusting money into someone's hand with the words, "Go buy a personality".)

Fine bonuses include a helpful fourteen minute summary of Season 2 (for obvious reasons, best watched first). The main directors interestingly reflect on what they achieved (a chance to see again key sequences). Martin Scorsese considers the latest developments.

With no signs of flagging, the series continues to recreate with style the decadent Twenties. Prohibition more than ever proves a ghastly mistake, many to perish as gangsters engage in a bloody battle for supremacy.

Gripping fare.

Great story line and action. The plot seems to vary all the time which keeps you on your toes as to what comes next

Fabulous series about the Prohibition and the growth of the gangs that became the Mafia. Wonderfully acted and fabulous story line.
