The Only Kind of Flashing We Want from Steve Buscemi

Last night’s season premiere of Boardwalk Empire began seven years after last season left off, jumping from the Roaring Twenties to the Great Depression. How do you age Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) seven years in a matter of months? Computer effects.

Nucky Thompson is now setting up operations in Cuba, hoping to go legit as the end of Prohibition becomes a possibility. Meanwhile, Chalky White is on a prison chain gang…temporarily, thanks to a guard who can’t hold onto his gun.

With seven episodes to go, there’s death and mayhem to come, unless everyone decides to be nice and just hang out. Why can’t people on HBO chill for once?
