A really great article about Jack Huston and how excellent he was as Richard. The writer has been covering the show all season, and has some very interesting takes on the episodes.

Thank you, Howard, for the link. I suppose this is what is meant by sweet sorrow. Regret at the loss; a thrill of appreciation for what was given and completed: the character, the story.

I'm a little surprised as I thought they had enough material left to go for two more seasons. Still, I'd rather see BWE go out strong than overstay it's welcome.

I'm not surprised at the announcement. The actors (and Terence Winter) probably want to move onto other projects, and the writing has honestly felt a little aimless since the end of season 3. And just a bitter fan rant here: Really writers? You couldn't figure out a way to keep Harrow on for twelve more hours of television? Just twelve! Actually, way less than that since each character only gets like 10 minutes every episode at the most.

 

Sorry, still not over it.

I've read on other sites that Terence Winter is apparently producing another show for HBO (a rock n' roll drama with Scorsese again, plus Mick Jagger), so I wouldn't be surprised if he wants to wrap this up, and get to that.  And I can certainly buy that some of the cast wants to move on. Then again, maybe it's HBO.  I know ratings aren't as important to them compared to networks, but maybe they still don't feel like it's pulling enough to be worth whatever the production costs are, plus it's no longer getting as much award love as it use to.  Maybe they even think they'll go lower now that Richard is dead.  I can see it being a combination of many things; from both HBO and Winter/the producers.

 

Hopefully, they'll give it a great send-off, and give everyone a chance to shine.

I thought they were going to go until the end of Prohibition, but unless they skip huge chunks of time, that won't happen. As long as they get to end it as they want, I'm fine. Since Richard is dead my interest is less than it was, although I do want decent closure on Nucky & Van Alden's stories.

You know, I never felt the show really recovered after killing off Jimmy. Then killing off the romance between Margret and Nucky...the show seemed to really go downhill after that. Last season was fairly awful with the only really good thing being the Dr. Last season seemed to be all over the map. I can see why they are finally pulling the plug, which is really too bad, because the show really could have been great.

 

Maybe there's a spinoff with Capone?
