Boardwalk Empire: Is a New "King" Coming to Atlantic City?

Get ready to meet a different kind of gangster on Boardwalk Empire.

On Sunday's episode (9/8c, HBO) Nucky (Steve Buscemi) & Co. will meet Dr. Valentin Narcisse (guest star Jeffrey Wright), a Harlem crime lord who is drawn to Atlantic City to investigate the disappearance of one of his talent scouts — aka the man Dunn Purnsley (Erik LaRay Harvey) murdered in the Season 4 premiere. Needless to say, Narcisse comes to Chalky (Michael K. Williams) looking for answers. 

Boardwalk Empire
: Can Nucky walk away from being a gangster?

Unlike the hot-headed and physically imposing thugs of seasons past, Narcisse isn't necessarily seeking eye-for-an-eye vengeance. But that doesn't mean he should be underestimated... read more

The Weekend Playlist: Foyle's Cold War, A Second Look at Orphan Black

One war makes way for another as the incredibly durable Foyle's War, in its seventh Masterpiece Mystery! season on PBS, transitions from post-World War II intrigues to the ethically murky spy games of a burgeoning Cold War. "I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit," grumbles former police DCS Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen, radiating crisp intelligence and decency), who once again is denied his dreams of retirement when MI5 spooks reel him in, fresh off the boat from America.

Weekend Playlist: Last Tango in Halifax, Boardwalk Empire Join Sunday Crush

Anyone seeking momentary relief from the dazzling darkness of the anti-hero vogue so prevalent on Sunday nights — epitomized by Breaking Bad's harrowing race to the finish line — will find a delightful tonic in PBS's Last Tango in Halifax (Sunday, check tvguide.com listings), a winning romance about two widowed seventysomethings and their supportive but screwed-up families.

Not a meth dealer (Bad), serial killer (Dexter), bootlegger (Boardwalk Empire) or brooding bully of a fixer (Ray Donovan) in sight, but life is still not without its complications in Halifax, a six-part charmer blessed with instant chemistry between the esteemed Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid (from the recent Upstairs, Downstairs remake) as Alan and Celia, lonely pensioners and former childhood pals who reconnect on Facebook after 60 years and impulsively decide to take a second chance on love.
