Sopranos Update

We dunno. When The Sopranos first began, it broke all the rules and rewrote the book on cable television. It opened entirely new avenues in television entertainment.

Now?

It almost seems cliched. It's lost the hook. Unless it ends in some insane bloodbath, we don't know if we'll even watch it to the finale.

Thought the episode tonight was well done. It seems that no one is thrilled with being the boss. Their age is catching up with them. Christopher is more fun as a fuck-up. Carmella's feelings are hurt but what's up with A.J. and the P.R. puta?
RIP Johnny Sack. Who's next???

Soap operas for men? (girlie men you mean) This show is retarded, a bunch of fatso dagos talking tough? Sure... Go eat some Sieser pizza. Man, the polocks kicked you dagos off Harlem, the black man kicked you off Taylor st. Even the mexicans kicked you out of Melrose Pk.

Come on at least someone got whacked, and Silvio got his face sprayed with blood. That was enough to get me watching for at least one more week.

Silvio is at dinner with Gerry Torciano when a shooter working for Doc Santoro takes Gerry out. Sil gets out unscathed.

--------------------------------

I thought this was an extraordinary scene. At first we did not know what was happening. The sound was muffled. Blood was splattered on Silvio. Things were going in slow motion.

For anyone who has been involved in a shooting or anything traumatic this scene must have felt very real. Sound is muffled or turned off completely. Actions seem to be in slow motion. These are the human responses to shock. Great scene. Watch it again.

The only scene I recall that was close to this was in Lonesome Dove.

Gus McCrae (Robert Duvall) is watching Jake Spoon (Robert Urich) get hanged. On "The Actors' Studio" Robert Duvall described his reaction to the hanging as the best acting of his life. He responded to the shocking moment with a reaction of pure shock. Watch this one again also.

To 11:58... sounds like someone he's had a thing for Italian gals and the feeling were not returned. Or... how long has it been since your wife dumped you? Boo-fuckin-hoo. It's just a TV show.

What happened to the Italian neighborhoods in Chicago? Did they all run to the suburbs at the first sight of a minority on their street? We still see Polock neighborhoods and Irish neighborhoods
