boardwalk-empire-final-season

Variety just posted this insightful piece on one of my favorite shows of all time “Boardwalk Empire” and it’s imminent final bow. I’m sad! I personally don’t buy that the slow down in awards and noms played a part of Boardwalk going off air. I did say it all along, there was just was not enough budget to support both a Boardwalk and “Game of Thrones´╗┐”. If I had it my way, it’d be the other way around but I completely get it from HBO’s standpoint. Thrones is a more universal show for both genders with endless licensing opportunities worldwide. Doesn’t change the fact that I’m really, really sad Boardwalk is going off air. This season so far is so rich with story and character evolution, living up in every way. I just hope the backstory through line leads up back to Jimmy Darmody. I wouldn’t be surprised, Terrence Winter is a genius when it comes to closers. Also, go inside the premiere episode of this final season, which sets the stage for the end…
