@msolga,
Google "all your base are belong to us"

It's a kind of Internet meme that came from a computer game.

It was a joke implying that we had managed to take you over.

To the dark side or something I guess.
You can't explain jokes.

@dlowan,
Oh OK. Smile
I thought you were responding (literally) to my post.
I was wondering what the hell I'd said! Wink

Unfortunately missed the Sopranos. Once HBO became available to us on TV in the last years of the series, we saw the odd episode but we were too far behind for it to make any sense. I wonder what the complete series sells for at Costco or on Amazon because I would like to see it.

We just finished watching season 3 of Damages on DVS last night, with Glenn Close. Both Mr. M. and I think it's the BEST series we've seen in many years. Has anyone followed that series?

Season 4 is airing now, but only on Direct TV so I guess we'll have to wait for it to come out on DVD. Hopefully it does!

@mckenzie,
Almost finished series 1.
Getting the hang of it now. It's definitely growing on me.

Tony's relationship with his psychiatrist is certainly very "interesting"! Smile

I wonder how many times I'll see & hear this if I manage to make my way through all episodes?:

@msolga,
It's been a while since I've seen those opening credits, and I probably haven't seen them much since I moved to New Jersey. It's incredible how accurately they capture the feel of the area.

@Thomas,
It's a big part of the interest for me, Thomas.
The local "landscape".
The different locations & the character & feel of the place.
And of course, the local characters.
It's rather like taking a guided tour! Smile

@msolga,
The biggest hit with me, though, were the details of character development. For example, since you're reaching the end of season 1, you probably saw the episode where the psychiatrist explains to Tony how old people need to feel in control. Tony takes her advice and let's his uncle Junior be boss. The next scene is Junior and Tony's mother sitting together at a funeral, each with an I-am-the-king-of-the-world grin on their face. So good!

@Thomas,
Yes, it is!
And also watching the character developments within Tony's family.
Seeing the dynamics change. His wife. His children, as they grow older.
The episode in which the family priest "stayed the night" in the family home was pretty extraordinary! Smile

@msolga,
It was fun watching Tony's kids grow up on the show, too. His son started out as a chubby little preteen and over the years had a major transformation. I wonder whatever happened to him?

@izzythepush,
Just popping in to say that I've now watched the first six episodes of series 4.

(Don't worry, izzy, I'm not going to reveal any plot developments you're not up to yet! Smile )

Verdict: It's wonderful! I'm addicted.
What a terrific cast, what fabulous scripts, what terrific filming!

I suspect there are quite a few local details & subtleties that you US folk might understand that I might not have picked up 100% ....
But what the heck.
Who's complaining?
This is wonderful stuff.

@msolga,
never saw the series, but long before it ever existed, the song was part of A3's brilliant album Exile on Coldharbour Lane, any album that contains a techno version of John Prine's Speed of the sound of Lonliness and samples the Rev. Jim Jones can't be all bad

@msolga,
I'm up to the bit where the old boy, dying of lungcancer, shoots two thugs then dies in a car crash on the way home.
