In fact, my recollection is that Torrio and Colosimo were partners at one point.
I think they started the episode about a year too late, they had some excellent character development that they missed out on pre-Volstead act.
I'm also not sure I loved Buscemi in this show. He seemed a little out of place; I just don't see him having a dark enough side for this character. I think it would've been better with a guy like the guy that played Rothstein as Nucky's character.
Should still be very good, but I'd have made a few changes.
Heres the thing. I think those of you with this opinion may be jumping the gun a bit.
I think that Enoch is supposed to be a character who is, for lack of a better word, a pansy.
Remember at the end when Jimmy (i think thats his name, the WWI vet) says, "You can't be half gangster. Not anymore." I think that was a tell-tale sign that Enoch is trying to not be a gangster, and maybe he will have a hard time deciding whether he will stay half-legit or go in all the way.
Sorry if I didn't make any sense there, I'm pretty tired.
