'BOARDWALK EMPIRE' RECAP: JIMMY PLOTS TO GAIN CONTROL OF ATLANTIC CITY


'BOARDWALK EMPIRE' RECAP
EPISODE 12 (SEASON ONE FINALE)
'A RETURN TO NORMALCY'


Written by series creator Terence Winter and directed by veteran Tim Van Patten, "A Return to Normalcy" was anything but. Atlantic County Treasurer Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and Atlantic City braced for change on Election Day in 1920. The grease and oil in his political machine was stronger than ever. But at what price?

Note: While this recap will not be my usual blow-by-blow (HBO did not send out screeners), I will try to be as thorough as possible when it comes to key events, places and references. Please read and enjoy because it's chock full of footnotes...

Also: Enjoy my fan-made trailer for the show. As most of you know, I love 'EMPIRE' but HATE the opening credit sequence. I don't think it properly conveys setting, time, place or era. I mean it was the 'Roaring Twenties' in what was considered 'The Showplace of the Nation...' And I also think that the theme music is ALL WRONG. I just had to make my own intro...

If you agree with me, you're gonna love my fan-made alternate opening...

  5. Buscemi!

    Alright who else thanks the best scene in Fargo---a bit...sentimental in the Ellay-hipster sense but had its moments-- was NOT SB being stuffed in the chipper but his reaction to the Swede's uh....hasty deposing of the state trooper....whoa daddy.

    Rez Dogs as well.

    I digged this cool software drm-removal and used it for removing drm from itunes protected audios a years ago, it did the job well, btw. Then I bought mp3 player and it could't play my wma files so I decided to [url=http://drm-removal.com]convert wma to mp3[/url] with drm-removal. It works like magic! Just in a few clicks, you only need to click "Add" button and choose the folder of wma files. They will convert all the tracks in parallel at a really high speed. If you have the same problem and need to convert wma to mp3, you should try drm-removal!
    I am big addict :) of audiobooks and actually wonder, if it legal. I bought a book (now its mine!) from napster, but may be its drm and I can't copy it to my MP3 player!! Thats dick!! I can remove drm - but what about legacy?

    thanks in advance!
