Paulie Walnuts is at least consistent. "Everyting's about me"

Many people are gonna get iced I feel . Otherwise this l;ast season will go out like Cheers. I want it to go out like the Bob Newhart Show. That was the greatest series ending ever.

Best line from last nights show, credited to Paulie Walnuts...

Deep.


That's a line from Chicago's "Spinning Wheel", correct?

"What goes up must come down
Spinning wheel, spinning 'round..."


Blood, Sweat and Tears actually. Cool


Oh yeah...

If it went out like Six Feet Under did, that would be quite good as well.

I don't watch the show because it denegrates italian americans and that offends me.

For the most part my friends most of whom are Italian watch the show. There are some who will not because it denigrates italians. If the truth be told it is a very accurate presentation of the wise guys.

If accurate, how does it denigrate anyone? Not all organized crime is Sicilian, or Italian, but some Italians and Sicilians make up a infamous part of organized crime. In fact the realism sought after in Soparano scripts is a welcome exception to what is far too often stereotyping in novels, film and television. Even the most despicable members of the criminal underworld have redeeming features and have admirable traits. They are human, even if much of their behavior and and many of their attitudes are dangerous to social order.

In the end, The Sopranos should be judged on the quality of the writing, acting, and production values, and not so much on how accurately the series depicts the criminal world of New Jersey. This is after all a drama, not a documentary.

Funny; my first reaction to the Sopranos was: "Kickycan and Frank Apisa would fit right into this bunch."

I felt the same way. Creeped me out.

I also liked the letter Uncle Junior sent to Cheney.

The only part of the episode that was almost worth while watching was with Uncle Jr. The rest wasn't even up to the standards of a bad soap opera.
This season has been a disappointment.

Did I forgot to say "just kidding" again? I have got to start remembering to say that from now on.

So Tony's got a gambling problem and is running out of money.

The missus built a house that doesn't meet code.

A kid takes a dump in the shower.

Speaking of dumping, AJ's fiance dumps him and leaves town.

Where is this all going? Do I still care? So far, this season has been eh.
