Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) and Jeremiah Panhorst (@jpanhorst) recap episode 1 of the final season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, “Golden Days of Boys & Girls”.

Show Notes:

The Flashbacks

  • What did we think of the actors playing the younger versions?
  • Did John Ellison Conlee sounding like Dabney Coleman?
  • Did Nucky learn to love Horatio Alger, Jr. (Ragged Dick) work after reading Golden Boys for Boys and Girls?
  • Is this a good start for helping us care about Nucky?

Havana Cuba

  • Nucky and Sally are making plans for the future with the Bacardi family
  • Sally and Nucky still together after all this time, surprised?
  • Was Lansky involved in the attack against Nucky?

 Chalky in a chain gang

  • We loved the grey look they gave Chalkys world
  • Chalky escapes with another inmate who needs someone to answer phone calls?

    Jimmy Darmody, Richard Harrow, and Gyp Rosetti are the 3 most complex and interesting characters the show has had and they leave a pretty big hole which they can’t replace for me. So not expecting a great last season tbh. I’m with you guys, Nucky is not the best character to base the series around, but the flashbacks with the Commodore could be good, but will it reveal anything we really need to know do you think?

      It is to early to know for sure, but I am holding out hope that the writers are holding off on a big reveal about Nucky’s character that we will not see coming. I agree with you about Jimmy, Richard and Gyp, but I still believe we still have enough interesting characters left to watch. I am very excited to see what happens to Chalky and Van! And things are just heating up with the real life gangsters, Al Capone and Charles “Lucky” Luciano.

        Yeah I always get a kick out of the real world events being mentioned or reenacted on the show. Keep up the good work guys.
