I fail to see the purpose of the flashbacks to Nucky's childhood. The character is fully developed over the last 4 years and most of us could have imagined his background without going into lengthy underdog exposition.

The flashbacks could have been easily replaced by more 1931 background setting, other character screen-time, etc.
All in all, wonderful series!
