I Binged Boardwalk Empire

And boy am I happy I did. Where have I been living? Under a rock? How did I not know Boardwalk Empire is the answer to a lot of my problems. At this point, I should say that this is not a full review of the series at all. I’ve been watching it for the plotting. In fact that’s why I watch so much television and so many films. I love to see how stories unfold.

BE is an example of solid writing and rich storytelling, albeit predictable at times. Take for example the character Owen Slater played by the hottie Charlie Cox (Yep, Daredevil). As soon as he walked into Nucky’s house I knew he and Margaret were going to hit it off (see what I did there?). Their clandestine love caught me up in the feels. And while I saw that storyline unfolding a mile away, I couldn’t have predicted the tight spot Owen would ultimately find himself in (I did it again!). Reallllly tight. Two words  for you: wooden box.

I recommend making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich ( I know, specific, but just go with me on this ) and bingeing all five seasons of Boardwalk Empire for the gore, the plot, and Charlie Cox. You’re welcome.
