Saw all 12 episodes in one sitting. This is round 4 with the same strong characters who survived the last round. Some new characters, too, who fit right in. Terrific storylines with great payoffs. Here are my favorite characters in this series: Nucky, always good, boy he knows how to lie. Al Capone, this guy is ready to explode big time. Nelson Van Alden, again great fun watching this guy snap. Eli, we hope these brother issues get resolved. Arnold Rothstein, unsinkable. Chalky, love him, love him. Eddie Kessler, wow, he steals the show. Gillian, out to outsmart everybody. Richard Harrow, on a mission-quest and we finally get to see how handsome he is. Daughter Maitland, what a breath of fresh air, great voice, gorgeous close-ups. Sally Wheet, a real sweetheart who can throw a punch (played by a favorite actress who I didn't recognize until she smiled). Willie, potential rising star within the family. Bill McCoy, a rum runner worth Googling to read about his incredible career. Knox, utterly hateful with no redeeming qualities, hope a piano falls on his head. And then there's Dr. Valentin Narcisse, the diabolical impressario, this guy is really something else. Spend a day watching the entire series, then sleep for 12 hours.
