    I thought I would start the thread early as they have started to release some material like some photos and a trailer. Ths season has Bobby Canavale guest staring. The new season jumps ahead a year after the events of the season 2 finale.

    I really hope we get more of Michael Stuhlbarg this season.  Rothstein is probably the most criminally underused member of an ensemble on television.

    Agree, that guy owns the screen whenever he’s on.  More Rothstein.

    Reviews are starting to come in.   77 on Metacritic so far.

    I thought this was a good return for the show.  Buscemi is still miscast, which is always going to be a problem, but very strong ensemble work.  I actually liked Michael Shannon for once (on this show, he’s a great actor in general), and Huston, Cannavale and Graham all put in strong work as well.

    That was some magnificent work from Cannavale, his character hooked me in instantly, I reallly enjoyed that episode, that scene at the hospital was very disturbing and I loved the way Macdonald reacted to it.

    It was so great to see Richard having his payback for Jimmy and Angela. I have high hopes for this season, it started very good and I hope we can see much more of Cannavale’s performance on it. I even liked Nelson’s arc here, I’m sensing he will join the crime world on the next episodes. Great to have this show back.

    AHMAZING episode to kick off the season. I do miss Michael Pitt here, but damn Bobby Cannavale killed it. He was a force in all of his scenes and has made a case for a nomination where ever he submits. I am also loving this evolution as Margret as the HBIC and Macdonald had a fierce showcase tonight also. The twist w/Nucky at the end I did not see coming. Also am unsure who to feel about the plot w/Van Alden. It’s everything against he has been carrying on about, but I guess he has to be about that life now in order to provide for his family. And as long as Gillian doesn’t bother he grandson, she can stay b/c that would be too much if she did and I would need the law (or in this case Richard) to handle her.

    This show is so beautiful to look at in addition to being well written. So glad it is back and can’t wait to see how the season holds up to its incredible sophmore effort.

    I think this was the strongest season premiere they’ve had, I loved it.

    What you guys think, that Irish guy that bodyguards for Nucky will die by Richard’s hands or Nucky’s? I’m feeling by the end of this season someone is gonna off him eventhough he seems to be very skilled in what he does.

    Thank God. The wait is over. It’s been a long time since the last episode, and I’m glad it’s back.

    I still can’t get over the fact that Michael Pitt wasn’t nominated for his final season on Boardwalk. How could the Academy nominate the Downton Abbey actors who were reserved and subtle and not Pitt’s promising performance as Jimmy Darmody? Yes, we all know the secret of them being snobs but don’t they also give credit where credit is due?

    Yet for all this, there might actually be someone who can finally break through for Boardwalk as a nominee in the Drama Supporting Category. I know it’s too early to say this but I guess an Emmy contender is emerging among the cast. With Giancarlo Esposito and Jared Harris unable to come back for another year, and the uncertain chances of the Downtown Abbey actors, Bobby Cannavale may very well be in the discussion for next year’s line-up for Drama Supporting Actor.

    In the season premiere, Cannavale owned the screen whenever he was on. And with the major arc that his character will be going through the season, I’m pretty sure he has the material that the Emmys have to their liking. Yes, it is quite different with Michael Pitt not being around but, with that said, Bobby Cannavale will make-up for his absence. 

    Looking forward to another great season. Here’s hoping Margaret doesn’t do bullshit.

    Cannavale was a bit broad for my tastes.  I’d rather see Jack Huston or Michael Shannon nominated.

    The show is completely different without
    Michael Pitt, but it was a good start for the season. Let’s hope season 3 is on
    the same level of season two.

    Bobby Cannavale was clearly the standout
    here. He was perfect in every scene he was on, and this sounds like it is going
    to be in one of the best characters of the show. I don’t know where he’s going
    to be submitted (Guest or Supporting), but Cannavale really has a shot of
    grabbing a nomination.

    I remember watching “To The Lost,” and sitting on the edge of my seat when Nucky shot Jimmy. It was a bold storytelling move, one that we knew a lot of people weren’t going to be happy with initially but one that would seem far more fitting and organic as time passed. Sure enough, Season 3 has begun, and while I miss Jimmy, there isn’t quite the huge hole in the show that I thought there would be. Maybe that has to do with the writers jumping forward two years, to New Year’s 1923 (or, as Chip Rossetti informs us, “the year of the pig”). Nevertheless, I found myself re-hooked to a series that could’ve easily died with Michael Pitt’s character.

    There was a lot going on in this hour, and I liked almost every bit of it. Nucky’s political connections are having legal trouble, and by pulling back his operation and working only with Rothstein, he’s already made enemies elsewhere. Margaret giving away the land last season has pushed her marriage to the brink and — in a great scene near the end of the premiere — to the point where, despite their loving exterior, Nucky is sleeping back in his old office. Richard Harrow is caretaker for Gillian and Jimmy’s son, watching over his late friend’s estate as a way of paying him back for his camraderie (more on Richard later). Van Alden has fallen in love with the babysitter he hired last season, and they have a second child. Oh, and he’s selling irons door-to-door with very little success. Chicago’s territory disputes are surely coming to a head, as Capone and Torrio find themselves butting heads with their Northside neighbors.

    Bobby Cannavale is a terrific addition to the cast, and I hope that, as Chip Rossetti, the writers give him plenty of material to chew on. He’s an anamoly against Nucky, Rothstein and Torrio; he’s willing to do his own dirty work, and has a tendency to snap on anyone who contradicts him… about anything… as in, like, anything. I study Prohibition history, but I’m unfamiliar with Rossetti’s fate. I’ll have to push myself not to Google it and spoil upcoming episodes for myself. I worried that Richard would become a loose end for the writers, but it seems like they have instead transformed him into the silent avenger. When Manny opened the door, and saw Richard standing on the other side of it, I literally cheered. Richard isn’t just watching over his friend’s family. He’s getting revenge too. Of course, with Manny gone, that still means that this Roland Smith — the thief’s wheelman — is still out there. And I’m getting a feeling that, though unseen so far, he’s going to play a bigger part in this season than we might originally imagine. Also, Van Alden’s money troubles aren’t there for nothing. I’m predicting that he’ll fall in, slowly at first, with the Northside gang, an ironic twist considering the righteous crusader he was at the start.

    Glad to have this show back. Despite finding the first season slow and uninspiring, I feel like the series has found its groove and will hopefully stay on the up-and-up.
