I don't have many guilty pleasures, but one that comes right up to that line is HBO programming. I can't get enough of the gorgeous, complex, but routinely horrifically violent shows HBO airs. My love of Game of Thrones (which I am never not thinking about if we're being honest) is a well documented fact. But another show I adore is Boardwalk Empire, which wraps up on Sunday.
So today I'm at Literally, Darling saying good-bye to Nucky and the gang.
"The style, music, and random moments of humor in an otherwise dark landscape of grotesque murder and drunken sexism was on point throughout. The show brought Prohibition to life vividly, with a cast of memorable characters. Eddie, the beloved and loyal German butler/driver/personal assistant. Richard Harrow, the war veteran turned assassin. Lucy, the ex-lover turned single mother turned random runaway who may or may not have made it in New York City. Nelson van Alden, the once-religious fanatic Bureau agent who went to a life of crime after his Swedish nanny straight up murdered a dude in their kitchen. All of them made my Sundays a little brighter … or, rather darker depending on whether or not van Alden was murdering people with irons."
