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.
I usually post the clips from SNL on Sunday mornings/afternoon, but the past few days have been so busy (which I will blog about.) But I finally got around to watching some of the clips from the episode, and I was glad to see that they ended the season by bringing back The Californians, Lazy Sunday, and The Comedy Tour.
Of course, the ending of the episode was sad because Kristin Wigg announced she would be leaving the cast, but in the end it’s probably good for her. She’s been really making a name for herself as an actress, so I’m sure she will get more movie roles and be that go-to funny girl in Hollywood. But I will admit that I’m going to miss her doing some of her iconic characters, and she also does a great Californian. So I’m glad they decided to do another Californian skit and Kristin Wigg got a chance to shine one last time.
The episode was hosted by Mick Jagger and overall it was a pretty good season finale. And of course, the digital short Lazy Sunday 2 made my day. They always rap about the most random stuff, and this time they talked about seeing Sister Act on Broadway. Even threw in a little dubstep.

Yes, he did Al Sharpton again. LOL, too funny. He does the perfect impersonation.
