The only resemblance between episode 3 of Boardwalk Empire and the first two episodes is that they’re using the same sets and the same actors. Beyond that, I don’t know. This is easily the worst installment of the series, asking the viewer to accept as gospel things that are just not possible. It’s writing at its laziest.
If you’ve read my reviews of the first two episodes, you know that I’m a fan. The show got off to an impressive start, but stumbled badly last night. If this is what we can expect for the remainder of the season, then I’m going to get off this train before it flies off the tracks entirely.
