A good way to end it.
3 November 2014 | by MattBrady099See all my reviews

Capone: "Remember all I did was for you. To leave you with something better. And that can't be for nothing".

TV shows theses day always start off great, but end terribly, and I got to say that I was a bit worried about the finale of this show, because most TV finales don't end well like: Dexter or True blood. Boardwalk Empire finale ended on a good note and it might get mix reactions at the first but more you think about it, more you like it. The acting was excellent, the sets were great and the cinematography was just breathtaking.

My only problems with this season finale is the fact that sometimes it feels rushed and I it only has eight episodes which is a big mistake for me, because if they put more episodes in this finale then it wouldn't feel a little bit rushed with it's character's deaths and it's main story. Boardwalk Empire as I said before ended on a good note, wrapping up all the lose ends and saying goodbye to everyone, and that to me is fantastic writing as this is a brilliant show.
