it was meh. i don't buy mcconaughey as this philosophical crazy guy at all.

 

 

I guess you never seen "Fraility" which is awesome.

He has the acting chops.. Just loves those paychecks from the romantic comedies of the ealy 2000's

 

Or Mud.  McConaughey is a helluva talented actor and the perfect choice for this role.

 

 

 

 

Along with most of the other posters I very much enjoyed it. 

 

I also think that its visually very interesting.  Cinematography is on par with Breaking Bad.

Just my guess, but the 2012 Rustin knows that the person convicted for the 95 or whatever year murder was not the real killer. This probably leads him to become disenchanted with the police dept. and leaving. They were obviously under some political pressure to produce a suspect, hence the preacher guy he was rude to in the station.

Also, Harrelson's character is banging the girl who came into the office briefly.

I definitely enjoyed the premiere.  Planning on watching it again before next week.  It is a good thing too.  With HBO announcing that 2014 will be the last season of both Boardwalk Empire and The Newsroom, I was a little pissed that them.

Agree. Newsroom is one of, if not the best written show on TV right now. And we all waited for Boardwalk to come along after the void left by The Sopranos.

 

I'll be waiting for the next one come the end of this year, I guess...

Just watched it. Loved it and looks to be on the level of The Wire. I'll be tuning in this week for episode two.

For sure, I love The Newsroom and it is rare that a show is so good but at the same time has so many characters that you like and root for.

 

Boardwalk Empire leaving though will leave a big hole in my life.It has the potential to sit in my all-time top five depending on how the final season progresses.  I really think that they had at least two, maybe three more seasons worth of story, which is why it was so disappointing.  I really hope that it does not end up like the final season of The Tudors, where they tried to cram everything in so that they could finish the show early.  That was a very good show that deserved better, but Boardwalk Empire is an all-time great show that deserves the best.  I trust Winter and Co. to give it to us but I am concerned that they may not have the time.
