No, actually, let me expound.

Boardwalk Empire had to do two jobs this season: make sense of a seven-year major historical gap and draw the show to a thematic close.  Not only did the principal cast bring their a-game (I could go on and on about Vincent Piazza’s utter transformation from Season 1, Steve Buscemi’s ability to stun us with a portrait of sympathetic monsterhood, Michael K. Williams and his broken resignation, etc.), but a whole other generation of mini-mes who had to tell the most significant storyline of the season, one that tied the whole series together.

And they did it.

So you are winners in my heart.
