The calm before the storm.

One problem this show really has that they need to correct. [I]Everyone[I] looks exactly the same. I mean, they always did, but at least in the past everyone had a personality and and was distinguisable. it was "hey, its Bobby!" or " its Vito Spatafore!" or Gino from a few seasons back. Relatively minor part, but I knew who he was. Now all season I've been going "Uh...I think that may be a friend of such and such that we met a few episodes back. He looks kind of familiar..."

And the woman are just as bad. They needed to make the realtor look significantly different than the wife. I couldn't tell what the hell was going on for the first half of the episode.

They've probably introduced 15 new characters this season and I know maybe half of them, less by name.

They weren't all together. Meadow wasn't there.

Well, I think that's certainly the last time we'll see them all together and happy, Meadow or not.

I thought it was pretty wild that Tony ended up being the bigger man and going to see Phil in the hospital. I wonder if Phil will take what Tony said to heart, or still be an old-school prick when / if he gets out of the hosptial.

We'll just have to wait seven months to find out... :mad:

I wonder who it was Phil was planning on whacking. Maybe Christopher?

I'm just so lost on this season. I have no idea what the hell I just watched, it just seemed so all jumbled most of the time to me.

I really hope the last season will be a lot better than this was.

My wife and I said the same thing about Chistopher. He's gonna get it.

Strange episode. I feel that they are setting thing up for a dirty ending to the show. Who was that guy that was in the hospital at the end with Tony after seeing Phil??

One of Phils little freaks. This season was horrible. Im sorry but they really ruined a fun show to watch. Brokeback Sopranos and this last show, what the hell was going on? Where is this amazing season ending finale I was waiting for? Tony kisses Phils ass and thats that?

Thank god there are only 8 more shows left. I couldnt take anymore of this garbage.

I miss the first 3 season :(

I also think its Chris thats gonna get it. I thought it was gonna happen when he was walking out of the dinner.

There better be gang wars in the last 8 shows LOL!!

There better be gang wars in the last 8 shows LOL!! Nothing will ever be as bad as that fourth season. It had maybe my favorite episode of all time (the intervention) and a good Ralphie episode, but I'd say there were a good five to six episodes that I'd rank deep into the negative stars with a miserable finale to boot. It had Carmella loves Furio, which almost completely killed my interest in the show and just a ton of nothing.

Maybe that's why this season didnt seem as bad for me.

I'm not as avid of a fan of The Sopranos as some, but to me it was a really underwhelming episode.

I also was expecting Christopher to get whacked, and I think he's had it coming for a long time so I wouldn't have been too upset if it had happened.... but nothing. :dunno:

06-05-06, 08:38 AM
If Christopher didn't get it last night (there were ample opportunities), he won't get it at all. Everybody (myself included) was expecting him to get whacked last night - and he didn't. Chase has a way of doing the opposite of what's expected.


I'm still wondering if the Gino storyline is ever going to come back into play, or of it was just a shocking way to start the new season.

Even when the episodes aren't as entertaining as others this is still one of the best well written and acted shows on TV.

I thought last night was pretty good. I had been waiting on the Chrissy episode and it finally came.

Tony having Sil finally do something about Carm's spec house was hilarious. She was too pre-occupied with trying to find Aid and she needed something to keep her busy.

Christmas in June... that was funny. Christopher or Paulie seem to be the logical choice for the NY crew.

Last night was pretty disappointing...The funny thing was when Carmine Jr. dropped the "Your brother Billy"...Then Tony tries to get up immediately and say his goodbyes then Phil just goes off...

Chris and that real-estate girl smoking from foil into a tube? I have never seen that and I assume that was coke?...AJ getting down with that Domican girl was funny, she's pretty fine...But to get the kids away he gives away a bike? Cmon, show some of your pops' side! :D

I think that's just abou it...Tony going soft with the speech to Phil, ehh no comment...Other than that? A very average episode...And this season has been below average, but in 6 months, you know we're gonna watch...

I thought Carmine's comment was interesting and definitely intentional. He probably wants NY and Jersey to go to war so he can take over the top spot after his last attempt failed.

Anyone else think it was strange that getting tea for Julianna's cold lead to a relapse for her and Chris. Unless I missed something that doesn't make any sense.

The show took a turn for the crappy. I have watched from the start and I always hope to catch that little glimmer of what the show used to be.

But i cant lie. I think this season stunk. As for the last 8 shows, I'll probably watch them and pray that they will pick up where the good shows left off.

THERE NEEDS TO BE A BLOOD BATH!!

If i want to see 2 guys getting it on I'll rent brokeback mountain. Actually, I bet there was more guy on guy on this show!! LOL!!

He went down there to 'regulate', but saw that there were 3 of them and that he'd get his ass beat.

As i've said before, I think Chase is parelelling AJ with Tony. AJ made peace instead of trying to beat up those 3 guys, Tony made peace with Phil later on in the episode

First of all...I could've sworn they've been saying there would be two episodes in the finale. Then the one.
I was a little disappointed with the episode. It was sweet that Tony made nice with Phil, but I don't like Phil. He's dangerous. And he still has to get revenge for his brother. All I can say about Carm, is that she has turned into quite the kvetch. He hands her a trip to Paris, a sack of cash, and she still finds ways to whine or complain about something.
But I will definitely watch the last season...and still want more after that.
Oh HBO God...thank you for DEADWOOD and ENTOURAGE starting this Sunday

Seriously, he could've gotten someone just as hot a) without giving away his bike, and b) without somebody else's kid. I wouldn't call that using his head. I'd call it wanting to get laid right then and there. I liked it when Carmela said, "She's got to be 10 years older than he is! And Puerto Rican?" And Tony said, "Dominican, maybe." And Carm says, "Well, at least she's Catholic." :lol:

Exactly. If I were a beating man, I'd say that Uncle June isn't as screwed up as Chase is leading us to believe and that this will be one of the crucial "surprises" and a missing piece to the puzzle next season.

On the other hand, this seems too easy. You're right - it's a tease.

I was enumerating all the possible theories with Deb last night, and it was amazing just how many there were this year.

- The Gino storline biting Tony in the ass, or playing any role whatsoever
- Bobby Bacala shooting the rapper in the "fleshy part of the thigh" coming back to haunt the crew
- "Da vipaz" coming back to haunt the crew, possibly through "Johnnycakes"
- Agent Harris work for DHS and infultrating Tony's crew due to Chris getting wrapped up with those arabic dudes that keep appearing
- Carm going to the FBI in regard to Aid, or Aid's mother seeking revenge on Tony and his crew?
- Paulie cheaping out on the ride at the festival and injuring Janice and putting Tony's niece at risk dividing the crew
- Paulie being upset at Tony's handling of the Vito situation so he joins up with the NY crew
- Tony's beefcake driver getting pissed and seeking revenge on Tony
...and that's just from this season!

From other seasons?
- Feech La Manna getting out of jail (again) and seeking revenge
- Patsy finally blowing his top in regard to his twin brother who got capped in one of the first few seasons
... and I'm sure there are others...

What I decided was that the writers considered all of these storylines, and decided not to use them because they came up with something much better. At least that's what I'm hoping for, anyway...

Other thoughts... this show has taken a huge step down without two characters being more prominent: Hesh and Johnny Sacks. Probably two of the best characters on the show. Hesh all but disappeared.

Oh well.

Yup, that's a big one. And what's going to happen to Uncle Junior for shooting Tony? And what's up with the FBI dude who's always at Satriale's? Something has to happen with him. I agree with whoever said it could have something to do with the Arabs.

That situation could be what really sinks the crew and I think they will get into it more next season. The Russian storyline would have been cool as hell if it was developed but I think that's that, if they didn't get to it by now I don't think they will.

just to let you know, im 100% positive the Russian or the Rapist of Melfi aren't going to be brought up. In an interview with Chase, he said that he wasn't rehashing that stuff, it was only meant for 1 or 2 episodes

By sinking the crew I was talking about the Arabic dudes - Christopher connection. There's no way Agent Harris is chilling out at Satriales because of the prociutto.

Gandolfini, whose own bitter contract squabble with HBO three years ago escalated into a court battle before it was settled, is hosting a sit-down this weekend with co-stars Steven Van Zandt and Tony Sirico, according to sources With each of the two actors and HBO still more than $500,000 apart on the money, and Sirico and Van Zandt not budging on their $200,000-an-episode asking price -- more than double their most recent fee -- a conclusion of the groundbreaking series without Paulie and Silvio looms as a real possibility ...........................With the first table read scheduled for July 5, several key cast members, including Lorraine Bracco, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Steven Schirripa and John Ventimiglia, have not signed on the dotted line to continue... Meadow and Tony Jr. made $85,000 per episode last season,
HBO, meanwhile, is flush after scoring a $195 million deal to sell the series' rerun rights to A&E and shouldn't have any trouble coming up with the cash to keep the key cast together for the network's anchor show. But the new contracts need to get inked fast--the table read for the first of the final episodes is set to take place July 5.
Otherwise we won't have to wait until next winter to see who survives the final round of whackings.

I finally got through all the episodes and like most of you I'm pretty disappointed. This season was more of a comedy then the great writing and stories of the first few seasons. The one-liners were great, but it's not what I watch the Sopranos for. Of course I'll still watch the final 8.

The actor who plays temperamental chef Artie Bucco on "The Sopranos" avoided jail time for driving while impaired in a plea bargain deal, authorities said.

John Ventimiglia, 42, who portrays Tony Soprano's high school buddy on the HBO show, will visit 30 schools to caution against drinking and driving under the agreement announced Monday in a Brooklyn courtroom.



Ventimiglia will also lose his license for 90 days and pay a $500 fine, among other conditions. Ventimiglia was arraigned May 1 on drunken driving, drug possession and other charges after officers spotted him weaving in and out of traffic. The plea to driving while impaired settled all the charges against him.

Sounds like Meadow will probably throw a tantrum or something. I can not wait.



Maybe Paulie's father will be a Priest.

Or how about, with a mere eight episodes left, precious screen time will be spent (as in potentially squandered) on the wildly popular "Cleaver" tangent!! :( Madonn', hasn't all the comedy gold been mined from this sub-plot already? Think I'd rather hear Meadow whine over and over about Finn's suitcase than watch any more of the "Chris-tuh-fuh Moltisanti, Wannabe Producer" storyline, unless there's some real dramatic payoff to it.

Please, Mr. Chase, stop the self-indulgence before it's too late!! No more pairs of socks from you as a gift. To repeat, there are only eight episodes remaining. All due respect, fans of the show request that you use them wisely. Don't let "Cleaver" be a waste of time, capisci?

Daniel Baldwin has been tapped for a potential recurring role in the final episodes of HBO's Emmy-winning mob drama "The Sopranos."

Baldwin will play the star of the horror movie that aspiring filmmaker Christopher (Michael Imperioli) has been working on.

I agree it is not as bad as some people are saying. To me it was interesting to see how they dealt with finding out Vito was gay. This gay story line is going to lead to their undoing. It is leading somewhere because the reason they killed that guy in the kitchen was because he was mocking them about Vito. His being gay and them not taking actions against him immediately leaves them open to be dishonored. That is why the killing and Tony walked in on it so he will be implicated in it and it will bring on a war among other things.

I just read in TV Guide that A&E channel bought the rights to the Sopranos. They will be airing them on A&E, didn't say when. But they will be having to change things to censor the show. For example, cut down violent scenes by a few seconds, cover up the Bada Bing Girls and any other nudity, and also change the bad language with dubbed in sanitized versons. They sure know how to ruin a good thing!

No doubt, I thought episode 1 of season 6 was the best of the whole season. The Wire, on the other hand, gives one good episode after another. I really hope Sopranos gets back to that level of storytelling for the final season.

I just recently watched all of season 6 because I did not get to see much of it when it aired. I was almost afraid to watch it, seeing as how this season was highly criticized by many.

I watched all of the episodes in like two sittings. I thought it was pretty damn good.

It would be nearly impossible to get the whole cast together again with open schedules. I sincerely hope that Chase ends the series with a real sense of finality once the curtains close.

The ending of Six Feet Under was amazing. That entire series was well done, but the last five minutes were great. That show had the best ending to a show that I have ever seen.
