      I thought Jimmy knew who his father was the way he spoke. I'm sure its just a plot twist to keep you guessing. Try and throw you off the idea that he's Nuckys kid

      He was HAMMERING that chick lol

      Also, there's no way his repressed ass was lasting that long. He definitely rubbed out a few rounds before hitting it.

      Dude I don't think she's a butterface. She's great looking in a different way - definitely not a cookie-cutter bimbo. Plus got some of the best BJ lips I've ever seen.

      I dunno man. Her tits are obviously fake and that alone makes her a cookie-cutter bimbo, IMO.

      Agreed that the pillow lips are nice, but the rest of her face is a brown bag special.

      And yes, I think my wife is prettier.

      And no, I'm not posting pics of my wife.

      Does Agent Nelson remind anyone else of the old James Bond villian, Jaws?

      Van Alden is a sick bastard! What, he thought Margaret was just going to throw away all of Nucky's money and run away w/ him? Especially seeing as he's married? I'm thinking he's going to snap in the next episode.

      And Jimmy has definitely turned the corner. I think what happened w/ Pearl did him in.

      And too funny at Al having an epiphany at the Bar Mitzvah!

      Margaret seemed genuinely dismayed at Nucky talking to those guys at the table, after she gave her speech. But being as Van Alden has shown that he's a total creep, who knows what she'll do. Going to be interesting if she ever tells Nucky that he came calling. Nucky will probably pull a Chalky and choke the fawk out of him.

      I'm still marking out over last week's episode. I hope Chalky gets incorporated into more episodes.

      IMO, this season was mainly focused on character development, hence why they lost a big chunk of audience, now that they established most of the roots, I think the show momentum will pick up to where it started in the first episode.

      Pretty much how every HBO series goes. Season 1 of the Wire took me 5 tries to get into but once I did I was hooked.

      Keep in mind the first episode a HUGE budget. I think it took two months to shoot. The rest of the season was then shot over roughly 6 months, at about 8 days of shooting per episode. ~4 weeks to prep shoot and edit.

      Not to mention Martin Scorissi has the most insane contract when it comes to filming and what/when he signs off on things.

      i did some searching after i read those last few comments, and the pilot cost about $18-20 million alone! incredible!

      really looking forward to these last two episodes.

      That cost must account for sets, props, costumes, vehicles, the intro sequence, etc. that will all be used for as long as the series runs. I think it's probably misleading to attribute that full amount to one episode.

      Anyway...looking forward to tonight's episode.

      Yes you are correct. They were able to reuse many things from the pilot. They also built a few blocks of Atlantic city on a pier in NYC. So that's some of the cost. BUT, the pilot still had a much larger production and production value than the other episodes.

      Also. Each episode has a props ,including vehicles, costume and set budget. Vehicles are many times rented not bought. I worked with two 1920's cars on royal pains both rented, one was valued at $3 mil the other at $80k.

      Prop crews have their kits which they rent per week. Same thing with costumes. Dressers have kits but it's mostly tools. Specific props or costumes or non built sets/locations are part of each episodes budget. Out of the pilot episode the standing sets are the only thing that was really reused.
