Top 30 TV Shows of 2012 : No 06 Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk has been slowly climbing up my end of year lists since S1.  It has this uncanny ability to surprise me each season. The season always starts pretty slow and takes a while to get me interested then around about episode six it takes hold and everything starts going crazy and the tensions rises and once again I am addicted.

S3 really raised the stakes and worked by putting Nucky in some serious danger. Even if we knew he wouldn’t die it didn’t stop everyone else around him potentially being in danger and it was great to see him having to rely on his wits rather than his hired heavies.

This isn’t the time for hurt feelings.
