Normally I’m the only one in my household that is immune to starting a tv series, then getting lost in the midst of life and looking up six months later and realizing the season has ended. I’m usually not that person. If I start a television series, then I watch every single episode religiously and make sure my DVR is set to record.
But apparently, my mom and dad actually caught me by surprised and watched almost every single episode of Boardwalk Empire. Each week they watched new episodes, and somehow I messed the memo. So what does that mean? Well I barely watched the second season and I’ve seen bits and pieces of the first season. But after seeing the new trailer for Boardwalk Empire season 3, I find myself watching all of season one, then I plan on watching season two so I can be all caught up.
Have you seen the trailer? Man, oh man, it’s awesome! Slow-motion face-off and of course, the winner is Nucky Thompson. He’s so gangster and effortless, which is why he is such an amazing character I’ve seen in a series to date (along with John Hamm of Mad Men.) And the trailer reminds us what the show is all about, the art of being a gangster. And “you can’t be half a gangster.”
And honestly, I’m just a huge fan of the 1920s all the way up to the 1940s. I’m a sucker for period pieces, so the style of Boardwalk Empire catches my eye. Of course I love the fact that the show is actually inspired by some events during the prohibition days, so it’s great to watch the drama unfold.
I surely won’t be missing any episodes of season three.
