Boardwalk Empire’s final season felt at times slow, but was mostly as good as always. We say goodbye to several characters, but that is the nature of the show.
Overall, I really enjoyed this show. The quality was evident in everything, from scripts to acting, from costumes to the production, from photography to direction, so I have very little complaints about it.
If you enjoy gangster stories, then I’d definitely recommend this show. It has all the greatness of The Sopranos just in a different era and with a different style, but the quality is definitely there, even though The Sopranos feels gutsier.
Grade – Season 5: 8
