In a 1920's Atlantic City black Americans would have been marginalized.

But, who knows.
Did you watch the 'making of' that they showed right afterward? Looks like his character is going to have a lot of respect and hold his own with the white bosses.

I really, really enjoyed it. I'll definitely keep watching. It's very well-written and authentic-seeming.

This is the best new series on t v.

I heard a T V critic on NPR. He has seen six episodes. He said it gets better.

He said it is up there with The Sopranos and The Wire.

This is HBO's new thing, ordering 2nd seasons of shows after only the pilot, they did that for Treme. I don't doubt BE will last, but it has to be highly expensive, seems kind of rash. However, the only thing they'll really get down to before seeing ratings for the whole season is writing, so not a complete risk I guess.

Same thing here.


I finally got around to checking BE. Good stuff! I'll be tuning in each week.

I love it! I was really surprised by the ending of this week's episode. I knew it was coming, but I didn't expect it to happen so soon. I kind of like seeing Margaret's not so sweet and innocent side. The reason she went Agent Psycho wasn't because of the alcohol but because of Nucky's rejection initially.
