Really need to find a friend with HBO so I can watch this. I liked the first season a good amount, but I really like the direction it'll be heading with Jimmy becoming a more prominent player. Hopefully his army buddy is still with him to kick ass as well.
Can not wait until season 2. This is my favorite new HBO show along with Game of Thrones. The last episode of season 1 was the best of the season and one of the best season finales I have ever seen. You all need to get caught up.
01-10-13: The Growlers

08-10-13: Gold Panda

15-11-13: Cut Copy
10-12-13: Monster Magnet
24-01-14: Big Day Out Festival Melbourne
Just finished season 2. I must admit that I liked S2 a lot less than S1. Thoughts?
I liked season two even though it lacked focus at times. Then the finale happened, I'm still hoping the scene in the rain is a dream or something because, if that is how the show is rolling forward, I will be much less likely to watch season 3.
I can't wait to see what happens with Richard Harrow. He's easily one of my favorite things about this show. Also interested to see what stuff Agent Van Alden gets into. Michael Shannon is so good at being so creepy and crazy.
Mad Men, ITM. That's what might keep Boardwalk from the top 3. I'm with you, though. I'm not quite sure why this show hasn't gotten a little more attention. It might be too "slow" for people (in other words, you have to actually pay attention to find the depth).

The pacing is what turns people off for the most part, I think. I remember reading one of those lists of "the best shows you're not watching". The blurb about Boardwalk Empire contained something along the lines of "great if you can handle the glacial pace of the storyline".
