And man. is great television on right now.
Season 3 of this, Season 7 of Dexter just started(last seasons have been pretty crappy though) and Season 3 of The Walking Dead is just around the corner.
Back on topic.
It looks like Van Alden is heading towards the dark side. hopefully he kills his boss or whoever it was that screwed him out of his bonus.
I find the ex agent to be a very dry character. I suppose that would be an irony if he joined O'Banion's crew in the North side.
Rosetti has a very short fuse. He's irrational and extremely volatile. Completely the opposite of Meyer, Arnold, and Nucky whom we all know use their intellect to reign supreme. I really wonder if they're going to last all 10 seasons til the first official mafia commission transpires just before the dawn of the Prohibition era. Then you can see each of the early gangsters graduate from local hoodlum to full fledged mafioso into an organized commission known as the five families under Charles Lucky Luciano.
Anybody who's into casinos, gambling, and the mafia should read Havana Nocturne by T.J. English. Highly recommend it. It is one of the most vivid pictures painted of post prohibition where the entire mafia bankrolled their money from bootlegging to the casinos in Las Vegas to Cuba under the Batista regime. Meyer Lansky plays a central role along with Santo Trafficante, Albert Anastasia, Charles Lucky Luciano and many other crime lords. The movie is in development.
