    Tch, spoilers

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Apparently season 5 is set 7 years later. Still think they could have done 6 seasons.

    Blergh, I hate time jumps like that. Sounds like they had more planned and it's been cut short.

    I thought it did well ratings/critics wise?

    Think its HBO's 3rd most rated show after GoT and Sopranos but maybe its a budget thing?

    Something is definitely odd about it. 7year time jump seems like they had one more season planned at least.

    Seems odd to set it in 1931 as loads in real life happened in those missing years Arnold Rothstein died in 1928, so that will have happened off-camera. 1931 was also the year that Al Capone was convicted of tax evasion, meaning we wouldn’t see much of his reign as Chicago’s most powerful crime boss beginning in 1924. Plus a few more. Hmmmm

    I know they are real characters but still spoilers.

    Surely EVERYONE knows what's happened to Rothstein and (especially)Capone.

    It's even been shown in very famous and popular films before. Spoilers are totally unnecessary.

    @Dairyfree:
    I think the Capone one is widely known (though not the year), but the Rothstein one isn't...Best to err on the side of caution and wrap it in spoiler tags?

    EDIT: Not you, in general...

    Anyone else kinda pissed off that the final season is only getting 8 episodes! Shame they didn't get to flesh it out abit more. I was hoping for at least 6 full seasons.

    Yeah it seems a real shame to skip all those years just to end the series.

    I think the show should have always been 8-10 episodes but still feel like they could have done a 6th season. Season 4 didn't feel like it was setting up the end.

    Starts in a week, fellas.

    Can a mod please finally sort the thread title out? There's no 'The', and it's not strictly about the mafia.

    I can't wait for this! Though I'm going to be absolutely gutted when it's done and dusted. What a great piece of television this has been.

    I've purchased all previous seasons with the plan to re watch, only half way through two. I don't have enough time before it starts.

    Nope, available to pirate by then. It's on Sky from the 13th onwards so not much of a wait.

    I cant wait. Now half way through season three, i wont get to finish four but that's okay as i remember most of it.

    going back through all the series in one is nice as you get to skip all of Margrets scenes which improves the show drastically.

    Very solid first ep.

    Decent amount of action for what is primarily an episode to set up future events for most of the characters.

    Thought the young Nucky scenes were very well done, good acting by the kid.

    Yeah I enjoyed it considering there was a few flashbacks. The only thing is we have missed so much regarding new york and chicago it kind of felt disjointed when lucky luchiano came into the episode.
