Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)
7 September 2012
Conclusion: Boardwalk Empire Season Two does not let down the viewers that loved Season One. The review was insanely hard to write because I was forced to leave out most of the good details in an effort to avoid spoilers. I never expected to be so interested in the 1920’s. The video and audio presentations are exceptional. The special features are as good and as detailed as the show.
Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Second Season (2011)
20 August 2012
Conclusion: Boardwalk Empire could have bored its returning audience (accustomed to slowburn dramas as HBO loyalists may be). It could have grown stale, lost its way, or taken the paths most traveled. Instead, the series' second season surpasses its first and takes Buscemi, Pitt and the rest of the cast and crew right along with it. Winter should be commended, just as the show should be watched. Again and again and again, until it's savored and appreciated.
Conclusion: I liked season one just a little bit more, but season two does introduce a ton of new interesting twists. Watching Nucky really struggle to regain his power is fascinating simply because he seemed so invulnerable in the first season. The backdoor political bargaining is amped up and provides for some great face-to-face scenes as characters do much more backstabbing than actual stabbing.
Excerpt: Det är få serier som jag sett framemot att få hemlevererade i boxformat som Boardwalk Empire säsong 2. HBO:s prestigeserie fick mig att bli ett entusiastiskt fan och slutet på säsong 1 lämnade en känsla av att jag vill ha mer , men som vanligt får man finna sig i att vänta, vänta och vänta. Tur att mellanrummet fylls med andra filmer och serier.
