Conclusion: Boardwalk Empire is unlike any other series on television.

Excerpt: Our reviews of Boardwalk Empire: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray) (published December 26th, 2011), Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray) (published August 22nd, 2012), and Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fourth Season (Blu-ray) (published August 20th, 2014) are also available.

Conclusion: In a world where shows on the AMC network dominate dramatic television and shows such as Homeland have announced their presence on pay cable, the third season of Boardwalk Empire reminds the viewer that they have a solid team of writers, directors and actors, given a Scorsese seal of approval. And in the show's third season, they may have done their best work to date.
