I expected something MUCH better from the series. The filming & music were okay, but the pacing was just BAD. Episode 3 is an example of PREMATURE REVELATION; after it, the remaining 7 episodes were padded, had no real horror or even suspense, and ended with artsy ambiguity. Overall, a 6--an example of filming a weak earlier work of a famous writer. And Martin and the cast actually seem proud of this big MEH...
#Strangers is unquestionably a roller coaster ride of plot lines. The interesting twists don’t start taking place until the second or third episode, which is another way of saying that the first episode is somewhat ill-represented of what is to come; the premiere is setting up what is to come of a strange man, in a strange city, dealing with a horrific situation. What First starts out looking like a straightforward narrative, becomes twisted, unlike any other movie, or tv show, I can remember having watched. The further you delve into this #BritishSeries, the more twists and turns develop into new situations, leaving heaps of evidence in its wake. What makes this series great is the #FilmingLocations, such as #HongKong #Macau and #London #GreatBritain, in addition to the exceptional acting, most of whom are not well known actors, although very well-trained, with the exception of master of all things British, #JohnSimm. If you watch this show, put yourself in his shoes, being in a country with laws unlike your home country, dealing with red-tape, looking for answers, and not only having nobody to rely on, but finding out that his wife, who just passed away, was somebody else altogether. In my opinion, this is a well written and directed story line, broadcast on #iTV. I am not sure there could be a second season to this story, although it is possible, however I am hoping for more television shows of this caliber in the near future.

Boardwalk Empire is a period drama focusing on Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (based on the historical Enoch L. Johnson), a political figure who rose to prominence and controlled Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the Prohibition period of the 1920s and 1930s. Nucky acts with historical characters in both his personal and political life, including mobsters, politicians, government agents, and the common folk who look up to him. The federal government also takes an interest in the bootlegging and other illegal activities in the area, sending agents to investigate possible mob connections but also looking at Nucky's lifestyle—expensive and lavish for a county political figure. The final season jumps ahead seven years, to 1931, as Prohibition nears its end.
