    Nucky is going to be capped by Jack Huston's character.

    In real life he lived, although the show is largely fictional the person he's based on only went to jail for tax evasion.

    I just got finished watching all of these and I had a question for the fans...do you think Margaret Schroeder/Thompson is as an enormous cunt as I do? I've grown to hate her character.

    I hated Jimmy the whole last season, but it was bullshit to cross him like that as a veteran it really touched me when that last scene off jimmy in the trenches showed. And they have thrown out all authenticity a while ago. I consider this fanfiction for Nucky it's pretty much loosely based on his life not a shot for shot remake.

    "the Chillllderen" yes most fans consider her duplicites and cheap. She's there to show america how horrible and phony liberal writers think Catholic's are.

    She's an interesting character. She's mostly good, but has half-sold her soul to the devil. Because of it, she lives a very conflicted life. She got corrupted by the lure of money and she's well aware of it. To me, she makes the show hold together. I get mad at her when she does stupid things, but don't forget she also smuggled Nucky's books out of his office so the government wouldn't find them. My biggest complaint about her is that she hasn't done a more explicit sex scene. :)

    My biggest complaint is that she's such a snob now.

    Would you have said the same thing about The Godfather? And Catholics get the rap as Sunday Christians from other Christians. Conservative Christians don't like Catholics either.

    Why Fran? I think she's playing the game like everyone else.
    The chilllderen :rofl:

    It seemed real in the sense that Jimmy was just way in over his head to run anything. I didn't get that thing with his mom, that could have been left out. I was surprised he went down like that and that last scene in the trenches shook me up.

    yeah I really hated him but then toward's the end I was hoping somehow he could esape. there were rumbelings that Michael Pitt was a pain in the ass and thats why they jetescended his character off the show, but who knows.

    It's annoying as hell to see how she talks to the help. To me it's a bit of a stretch that a poor, Irish immigrant falls into wealth and quickly forgets everything she ever did prior. They could have made her a bit deeper than that.

    You are so right, the show does have a few flaws. I still enjoyed watching it. It think Nelson, Manny, and Richard are my favorite characters.

    Congratulations on the name change. :toptip:

    Yeah you have a point but at least in the Godfather (I II) the church is presented as an beacon for Mama corleone and Kate in the book, and movie. You will never see a Catholic in a positive light on HBO take that to the bank

    The sad thing about Jimmy was his entire existence. Back in those days, it was really taboo to be born to a single parent. Nucky took him under his wing, but what kind of wing was it? Certainly not healthy. The crazy shit with his mom was odd too, but it made sense. He was scarred by many things. War, his upbringing, his relationship with his mom. Seeing him in the trenches was very sad.

    I love Richard. That mask is perfection. I think they originally intended for his character to be a temporary thing and things went so well that they gave him a bigger part.

    I started watching "Game of Thrones" last night. I love it so far and I'm not having any trouble following the plot or the characters.
