New HBO series......doesn't look like it's going to suck.

My sister's best friend is in a couple of episodes and she has a lesbian sex scene. That's all I have to add to the conversation.

Well you'd be a hell of a lot cooler if you added her phone number to the conversation, but whatever floats your boat I guess.

So I gotta say. I didn't see that ending coming at all. Thought this final season was pretty great, but mostly because of the Lucciano and Casstelamarea(sp?) War stuff. Little disappointed in how it ended, but thought they did a great job of brining it completely out of LF.

Really really really wish they'd do a spin off with Lucciano now. He easily was my favorite character by the end and the guy that plays him is great. So much storyline there to play with now that The Commission was formed in the final episode.

Glad I stuck it out with this as I think it was an overall great series.

Amazing casting this season with The Commodore, Young Adult Nucky, and Tommy. Dead ringers for Old Commodore, Nucky, and Jimmy.

Agree with both posts.

Would love to see that spinoff.

The young Nucky was spot on, but god his teeth creeped me the hell out.

Meh. Saw Tommy coming a few weeks ago. Final season was disappointing, although I agree the new casting was great. Left some meat on the bone with execution vs what could have been.

I was also totally blindsided by Tommy.
I always thought Nucky was going to get away in the end.
Glad that asshole Narciss got taken out and the Jillian didn't get out if the cookoo's best.
