Richard Harrow was my favorite character on the show. Very, very unhappy with his demise. John Huston should get some Emmy love.

This season just flew by...very fast. I was surprised to see that it was already the season finale. Great season.

Ok, so I watched the entire season in large chunks, just finished the finale...

It was a good season, but man am I :( about the ending.

I saw that and think I'm OK with it. 5-6 seasons seems to be the right length for a show before it starts losing steam. Also, while I've enjoyed BE, I've never found it to be compulsory viewing. I'm a little excited to see if the replacement in that time slot can be something better.

Anyone watch the season premiere?

A few thoughts....

Spoiler:
- Obviously not the greatest show in the world, but I am sad that this is the last season (and that it is only 8 episodes).

- Typical season premiere for Boardwalk -> Kinda slow, but some brutal scenes, and was more or less a set up for the rest of the season.

- Loved the Rothstein character. Sucks that we don't get to see him anymore and didn't get to see his death.

- Can't wait to see what Nucky does to retaliate towards Lansky (since he obviously went to Cuba to take Nucky out / probably steal the Baccardi business)

- Have no idea how they are going to pack everything in to the last 7 episodes, specially since we haven't seen major characters like Eli, Capone, Narcisse, and Van Alden yet.

- Still doesn't make sense why that one guy pulled a gun on Chalky. So that he could talk on the phone for him?

i loved it. their cinematography is top notch.
- Loved the Rothstein character. Sucks that we don't get to see him anymore and didn't get to see his death.
I loved the hinting at it in the last season with the gambling binge. glancing over it was a misstep (understandably...how do you fit it in with the time lapse?) but with such a ruthless, cunning character, he deserved an end.
- Can't wait to see what Nucky does to retaliate towards Lansky (since he obviously went to Cuba to take Nucky out / probably steal the Baccardi business)
that machete/cleaver(?) scene was in the same vein as when the butcher scene a couple of seasons back. great stuff. that juxtaposed with him teaching the young kid how he does business was an excellent callback to his flashback learning how to do business when he was sweeping the floor for a dollar.
- Have no idea how they are going to pack everything in to the last 7 episodes, specially since we haven't seen major characters like Eli, Capone, Narcisse, and Van Alden yet.
the last 3 episodes are going to be pretty awesome
- Still doesn't make sense why that one guy pulled a gun on Chalky. So that he could talk on the phone for him?
i assume them to be setting up for the next episode...that didnt make a lot of sense to me, but i didnt think much of the scene.

I enjoyed the episode. Seems wild that they have to wrap everything up in only 7 episodes, so I'm thinking we're gonna see a lot of action.

It's really a shame they had to skip six years. Not exactly what the writers had in mind, I'd think.

Well, it's 8 episodes and one is already done, so that leaves 7.

Yeah, I just can't understand why they shortened it. The other seasons were all 12 episodes, right?
