I'm so glad to read that this very talented woman will be joining the new season of Boardwalk Empire! I work at DISH with several fans of the show, and we've all been dying to know what's going to happen with Gillian. After watching last season several times from my DISH Hopper, I have a feeling that she and Nucky are going to be inseparable business partners next season. I'm so happy that my DVR can save up to 1,250 SD or 450 HD hours because I've been able to record full seasons of my other favorite shows, I still have last season of BE saved, and I still have plenty more memory to store the new season of BE without deleting anything to make more recording space.
