  • Boardwalk is still solid, but it's sacrificed some of its nervy power. [10 Oct 2011, p.40] Show More

  • The new season relies heavily on the show’s rich mood and atmosphere, inasmuch as series creator Terence Winter and his crew appear content to ease back into the proceedings while hitting the reset button. Show More

  • There's a lot of slow exposition here, requiring patience for new characters (like Ron Livingston as wealthy playboy Roy Phillips). But the body count builds by the time the credits roll, so those quiet rooms won't stay quiet for long. [6 Sep 2013, p.71] Show More
