HBO's Boardwalk Empire shocked fans last season when the ever-evolving treachery of Steve Buscemi's Nucky Thompson drove him to kill his protege and show favorite Jimmy Darmody, played by Michael Pitt, and now Boardwalk Empire is trying to fill the gap with an amped-up body count.
HBO’s new hit Boardwalk Empire stands at the intersection of movie and television show, drawing a little from both to form a compelling series about 1920s Atlantic City and the lives of the gangsters who defy Prohibition.
If you DVR'd Sunday night's season two finale of Boardwalk Empire, then be forewarned: SPOILER ALERT! James "Jimmy" Darmody (Michael Pitt) was shot — murdered — by none other than his father figure and mentor Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi).
HBO's Emmy-nominated, '20s era crime boss drama Boardwalk Empire started its second season Sunday night with a highly consequential bang. Chalky White (Michelle K. Williams), fleeing a race-based attack, shot and killed one of the white Klansmen, which puts her in a heap of trouble.
If you are one of the approximately 5 million viewers who tuned in to see the season premiere of HBO’s new Sunday night sensation, Boardwalk Empire, it’s possible that you had a “where have I seen that dude” moment when the camera zoomed in on the face of Jimmy Darmody.
