A&E showed reruns, which is ridiculous, because of course they have to edit the swearing and probably some of the violence. It looked like this:

Anyway, back to the Boardwalk... I wasn't sure if I was gonna stick with it, especially since it's on at the same time as Sunday Night Football, but this week's game looks to be a snoozer featuring the shockingly overrated San Francisco 49ers, so I may check out one more.


Jimmy left to go to Chicago, so that side of the mob scene should get more screen time. My problem is so far Jimmy himself isn't exactly a captivating character.
"Most smart people cannot watch most TV, because it has generally been a condescending medium, explaining everything immediately, offering no ambiguities, and using dialogue that simplifies and mitigates against the idiosyncratic ways in which people in different worlds actually communicate. It eventually requires that characters from different places talk the same way as the viewer. This, of course, sucks." - David Simon
