Nine more months to wait and see how Boardwalk will stun us again.

It was worth the slow burn.

The finale efficiently tied many of the loose ends from this season together while closing the book on some hated and loved characters, shaking the status quo up for next season.

This season, Chalky White literally comes into his own... Narcisse's language and affect confound White. There is a palpable sadness to their scenes together.
June 16, 2018
It was a slow-cook season filled with tons of great moments and performances.
June 16, 2018
When Boardwalk's many gears stick, almost everything falls apart, but when it works, it runs like clockwork.
June 16, 2018
I was wholly satisfied, even if I do already want the next course.

Now that a depressing mood has been set with the authentic period piece, it's time to discuss the sensational season of Boardwalk Empire and its firmly stuck landing...

It may be hard to tell where Boardwalk Empire's fourth season is headed... but it takes only a few moments to be reminded that it remains one of TV's most ambitious, high-minded period dramas.

Hardcore fans will appreciate the interwoven, intricate storylines, and what the show lacks in "oomph" is partly compensated for by terrific cinematography and solid acting.

I'd be glad to have Buscemi in every scene, but watching Nucky's frenemies thrive like poison toadstools ringing a tree - that's a grim, gripping spectacle in its own right.

The writers saved a few surprises for this elegant and gripping final hour, in which tables are turned and the inevitability of tragedy once again comes into focus.

Patricia Arquette joins the fourth season as a savvy Florida speakeasy owner who helps Nucky set up and run his new liquor pipeline from the Caribbean...

It's hot and muggy in the South. Gangster stories need the briskness of a winter's day or a cool summer breeze. "Boardwalk Empire" is about Atlantic City. Not slow-talking, slow-moving Florida lowlifes.

All in all it was a good season. Good, not great, but I'll definitely be back for Season 5.

Season 4 was even more sprawling, and arguably more disjointed, and yet it was richer overall.
July 21, 2014
Boardwalk Empire has developed so many characters and separate plot threads (some worthwhile and some not so much) that it has effectively segued into an accomplished ensemble piece.
July 16, 2014
Series four has been a faultless season of an already exceptional show.
