Today: This and If | The King of Norway

I've been catching up with the final season of Boardwalk Empire lately.  Last night I saw the episode called The King of Norway, and today cannot stop watching this scene:



Seriously.  I've been nearly compulsive about watching this scene today.  Over and over and over and over.  It's so perfect in so many ways.  The writing, the acting...  The effort each character puts forth to keep their version of a civilized veneer in place...  It's simply delightful.

If an Eli & Nelson spin-off show had been possible, I would have watched.  Don't get me wrong, I'm happy it wasn't possible, things are better this without what would have inevitably been a terrible spin-off; but I love this team so much that I totally would have watched.
