    i dont think the ratings are dipping, these shows always get too expensive to produce and HBO dumps it and moves on.

    Said it was ranked third in HBO's stable of shows. Still a good draw.

    I know I'm in the minority but I never did like the show. Boring as hell to me. Casting was a joke, the guy who plays Capone looks like a midget compared to who the man really was. I just can't take Buscemi seriously as the lead of a mob drama either. I thought he was good on The Sopranos as a character though before they ruined the series with the last season's Hollywood agenda faggot Vito story line.

    So HBO is ending most of their highest watched dramas. True Blood, which turned to shit, is done after this season. Only Game of Thrones is left. The Newsroom is still going, but it isn't highly watched.

    Granted True Detective looks like it will be really good, but how long will they be able to keep Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson on cable television? Scratch that. Apparently they are going to do it as an anthology series like American Horror Story where each season is a different story.

    Well stated opinion...I disagree as the show grabs me, but you posted intelligently and I respect that.

    See, crybabies?...not every new poster gets "ganged up" on...just dumbys.

    It's a good show, I love it, but how long should it go on for? Sometimes it's better to bow out on a high note and you get to complete your story, unlike Deadwood, Carnivale & Rome who's plugs were pulled too soon (although Rome got to compress two seasons worth of material into one). BE got 5 seasons which is a pretty good run.

    Agree with everything you just typed here.

    Damn shame this show is ending now... there is a wealth of shit they could still do with these characters.

    Use the budget for that "Girls" shitfest and keep Boardwalk going, you fags.

    Fuck HBO. :mad:

    Even HBO isn't stupid enough to cancel GoT, though. I think.

    Whether you like the show or not, GIRLS is low cost to make so it's going to last longer, even if it's ratings aren't stellar. It's a cheap way to fill a slot in their schedule. Like a Howard 101 show.

    I watch Newsroom, but it falls way short of my titty and full frontal expectations out of HBO. Them people are all fuckin each other, show them fucking!

    Game of Thrones on the other hand has gone full bore, getting that porn chick to play the midget's whore.

    Boardwalk was good, but once Jimmy was killed, you knew it would go down hill. Now with 1/2 Face gone, I don't know of a character I can root for. Maybe Chalky, cause I do enjoy the fish out of water, backwoods negro in a 3 pc suit thing. With all the broads gone, they better get some young, fresh jigglers for next season. Patricia Arquette's old pudgy jugs aint gonna cut it.

    I've always thought BE was a missed opportunity. It's so close to being great but always does something not quite right. Like the casting of Buscemi was never good. Or the lack of Chicago scene's. Still, sucks that it won't be on and we'll get more of that fat twat talking to the other twats.

    Yup, that actor could easily carry a spinoff. He's excellent.

    I wonder how far into the future next season will be. Rothstein got killed in 1928 so maybe they'll have that. Maybe Jillian can get raped to death with a mop handle in prison. It was so disappointing that Eli took the bitch route again.
