'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4 finale: Terence Winter on the politics of corruption

HBO's Prohibition-era drama "Boardwalk Empire" aired its season-four finale tonight, called "Farewell Daddy Blues." Since the show has been renewed, creator Terence Winter didn't have to worry about wrapping up his story just in case.But one never likes secrets to come out early.Told that some writers had published "spoilers" after seeing a clip from episode, Winter says to Zap2it,"They didn't realize that Nucky's actually a werewolf, did they?

Final Thoughts About ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 4, Expectations for Season 5

The HBO series ‘ Boardwalk Empire ‘ concluded what avid fans would call a mediocre fourth season this past weekend. The show, which has seen a steady decline of viewers over each season, has already been renewed for a fifth season and the question is – can the show rebound from a rather lackluster season? The fourth season had all the potential in the world to be great after a tremendous season three finale, however it fell short in many ways. The primary problem with the show is the number of storylines running at the same time. It’s become so watered down it’s hard to really get deep into any particular character aside from Nucky. In the past, the scenes with Rothstein, Masseria, Lucciano, and Lansky have been some of the most captivating of the series. This season that foursome probably appeared in only half the shows – at most.
