Over the past five seasons I've gotten so damn tired of so much goddamn flawless storytelling. Even SFU was courteous enough to lower the bar in it's latter seasons . Not The Sopranos, though; not yet, anyway. I mean, it's completely insane how good this show is. BRING IT ON!
March 12, 2006, 4:29 a.m. CST
I've lost all respect for you "Herc". Do you know how childish that is?!? They wouln't send you "gods" a screener, so you just post ALL the spoilers that you can, citing the above reasons. There's a word fro that ; petty. Don't try to get around it man, it's just sour grapes. You spelled it out unconsiously "EVERYONE ELSE SENDS US SCREENERS, HOW DARE THEY NOT SEND US A SCREENER?!?" Then you use a feeble excuse to list a bunch of spoilers (I didn't read 'em myself. I wanna go in cold). But it's the reason you did it that stinks. Sour grapes. If you wanted to prove that AICN was a place of "journalistic integrity" and that even HBO should send you screeners....well, you just blew it. Wait ; this is AICN. Where's my insults? Oh yeah ; You dumb Finook.
March 12, 2006, 4:53 a.m. CST
I've been looking forward to this for SO long I can't wait! WHY does Sopranos and most HBO shows take so long to come out with new seasons? And please don't say "writing quality scripts"!! All these 365+ day gaps between seasons is insane. This gap takes top place though. The funny thing is this season will still have its audience tuning back in after all this time. I doubt the networks could get away with that, baring Fox TV and Family Guy but thats an entirely different story. Anyway to quote Wrong Guy "Bring It On!" "..I woke up this morning..."
March 12, 2006, 4:58 a.m. CST
Thank you current TBers for not mentioning what was in the invisotext in your posts. I too like to go in cold!
March 12, 2006, 5:28 a.m. CST
Thanks Herc - you read my mind. The final eight episodes had better be in January. A longer wait would be interminable. I hope that they really are the final episodes this time. I'm tired of each season being "definitely the last - we really mean it this time". And HBO don't want spoilers to be revealed but they hold a premiere? It's not like this show needs the extra publicity. It would be nice if, just once, everyone got to see it at the same time - when it debuts on TV. No premieres. No previews. Just a real treat for everyone.

I understand AICN being upset at not getting episodes early... every podunk newspaper has seen the first episode, most have seen two, some have seen three episodes already. Big city TV critics have seen four or more episodes. (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2006/03/08/DDGHGHJIJ41.DTL) Many have already printed spoilers. AICN has always been a fan of The Sopranos and HBO. Why the freeze out on this?

BTW, years ago my mom had a great idea which of course could never happen now. But when Oz was still airing my mother said Sopranos should end with Tony getting arrested and being sent to Oz. How cool would that have been? I'm not saying it was feasible and honestly I'm glad they didn't do it but just the concept/ idea I think was cool and funny. Tonight it's on at 9pm!

"the circle-jerk of life" yes i'm stoned on the weed but did anybody else notice how ridiculously aurally magnified tony's vader-like breathing was, particularly in the funeral, sushi, & melfi scenes? ... this show NEVER disappoints. i just hope they kill tony @ the end of the series -- to do anything else would be a puss out.

...& hasn't been good since season 2 (with the exception of Season 3's "Pine Barrens"). The premiere had all kinds of bells & whistles; hanging, execution, the senile grandpa bit..but none of it has the inventiveness & fun of the first two seasons. David Chase has really fallen asleep at the wheel with regards to what he could've done with the show & has instead opted for hackneyed "shock" tactics; & I cease to see the point of the show now that all the fun has been removed - it's just another crime drama; & a bad cliched one at that. Chase is doing tragedy for its own sake - & it just leaves a bitter taste in the viewer's mouth - & gives no trace of catharsis.

The Firefly DVDs are appropriately priced. A typical tv season runs betwen $45 - 50, with anywhere from $5-15 discounted depending on the store. Firefly went a little over half a season, and retails for about $35, discounted down to $25-30 in some stores. The Sopranos typically retails for $80, but is often marked down to $60, though S1-3 have just been lowered to $50. Most people believe that the HBO series are terribly overpriced (Oz runs over $50 for just 8 episodes). Same is true for the X-Files and Trek sets, which until recently ran over $100 per season, with relatively sparse extras. A great deal can be had at DeepDiscount DVD for the 1st season of Sleeper Cell can be had for $20. Solid show with some great performances, and, as far as plausible plots go, it kicks 24's ass.

Maybe Harry should fire your ass and get someone who covers the TV scene more fully, and not just the constant buffy/firefly/galactica matrix. when last I looked, two of those shows were mercifully off the air.

Remember, just because a guy was introduced in the first episode of this season doesn't mean there's a storyline going anywhere. This is David Chase we're talking about...great at setting stuff up, but never going anywhere with it. Gee, what ever happened to that Russian guy that ran off in the woods and stole Paulie's car? Did they ever resolve that or did they just tidy it up with about 2 lines of offhanded dialog? Good job there David.
March 13, 2006, 7:15 a.m. CST
is that they're A) true to life and B) a way to keep the audience from guessing everything that's going to happen. if they do revisit a loose end, it feels like a real world and the viewer feels smarter for having recognized a previous puzzle piece coming into play.

Anyone have screen grabs of Meadow's little "Look at my camel toe" dance from last night? Girl grew up!!
March 13, 2006, 10:23 a.m. CST
I just rewatched the series prior to this premier and I really hope it picks up a bit from the last two seasons. It probably would have made for a better plot if someone under him had shot Tony. How he managed to shit on his subordinates so much and not get wacked is incomprehensible. In season 5, everyone under him was turning against him and he was in trouble with New York. Johnny Sack getting arrested should have made this all go away. They've turned Tony into an unlikeable prick, rather than just a "bad" guy. And now this whole thing with Junior seems like a replay of Livia trying to kill him (albeit from a truly impaired angle). On the other hand, Meadow is the hottest thing on TV. God damn!
March 13, 2006, 10:33 a.m. CST
That Tony grabbed that pillow when he went to visit his mother after she tried to have him whacked? Hard to image he would have related such an incriminating detail in therapy. Perhaps she saw it when she watched the first season on DVD.
March 13, 2006, 11:13 a.m. CST
by Fireball XL-5
I thought it was interesting in a Hamlet kind of way that when Uncle Junior shot Tony he imagined he was defending himself against Pussy Malenga, the close associate he whacked way back at the beginning of the first season. He said the name before pulling the trigger, and mentioned ite earlier in the episode as well. Cool full-circle stuff.
March 13, 2006, 11:44 a.m. CST
man, I was biting my fingernails waiting for this bitch to come back on. I would of thought, come Monday morning, this talkback would be filled. Alas, maybe most of you nerds can't afford HBO. No harm in that. Great intro. and interesting developments. I love how Tony's crew seems to be switched around a lot. You have the gay fat guy, Vito, as Captain now, along with Christopher. I love how they allude to Vito being a cocksmoker with that grabbing of the hotdog thing. Hilarious. However, the blantant foreshadowing of Tony getting it was both obnoxious and really fucking good writing. I can't decide which. The sushi, the weight problem, talk from the group. Who knows...good idea to not show scenes for next weeks. That means quick medical help and Tony in the hospital for awhile, while the family looks for the next successor. AJ's going to step it up pretty soon. He'll drop out of school. Any other theories?
March 13, 2006, 12:10 p.m. CST
March 13, 2006, 12:33 p.m. CST
was the funniest fucking thing I've ever read in a talkback. I kept picturing him shooting Tony, running upstairs, then turning around in the closet to look at the camera and bust out dancing. What's funny is when i was watching the show and saw uncle junior without his teeth, especially near the end, I kept thinking, "I've seen someone else who looks like this..." but I couldn't put my finger on it cause I was so involved with the show. That's how good it is... and another thing, how about the fact that most of our favorite television shows best episodes could EASILY kick the ass in the drama, interest, writing, and acting departments of pretty much every movie nominated for best picture. Seriously, the movies suck compared to the best of what's on tv now. It makes the dream of writing or directing films turn into the dream of having your own series.

Great episode. everybody catching up and getting bumps (Christopher, Vito..). Anybody notice the calmness btwn Carmella and Tony? When she asked him why he went to the sushi joint wihtout her, I thought she was gonna accuse him of taking a goomar. She was just mad she missed out on some 'fresh fish'. And the Adrianna flashbacks should haunt Christopher, not Carmella just a thought. Loved the way that rat motherfucker croaked just as he was making another brodcast on W.R.A.T. (hilarious), and was really hoping that dude was gonna get a pass to Florida by Tony (until it was found that he was a WRAT co-anchor). Meadow's boyfriend did not at ALL look interested in her lil' striptease, even though she was looking muff-tacular. And Johhny Sac wasn't looking at the picture because he was mad he missed his niece's party.... He was thinkin' to himself 'I do a yard and a half on Rikers and all I got to come home to is this fuckin' chubby champion bitch?! What do you guys think?

How can you say things have been slipping, and how can you say that the dream sequences are terrible. This is one program that just seems to grow from series to series have watched them all in the last few months in preperation for it starting again and it gets better and better. Series five third last episode cant remember the name but it's mainly an episode long dream sequence and IMHO the best episode yet!
March 13, 2006, 2:56 p.m. CST
I love how they added this as something Carmela and Tony could bond with, yet Tony went by himself that one time. What does this say? Not only does the rat croak in the car, but the Feds' other leak kills himself at the end. Hilarious. But, not really, cause I really felt for the guy and wanted him to take off to Florida. Both Vito and Chris seemed very anxious to make moves, while Tony made his usual, calculated peace treaties to settle things down. With J. Sacks in the slammer and I'm assuming, Tony in the hospital, you will have someone else running Jersey's family without Tony, and going against Phil, who made a bad mistake beating up the Jewish guy. Chris wanted to go after him. Tony calmed him down. There is going to be bad problems coming up with Tony out of the picture.
March 13, 2006, 3:30 p.m. CST

I hate the dream sequences, and that season 5 ep with the super-long dream sequence was the worse. Not many shows make dream sequences feel like dreams. Real dreams are never so pointed. They come across as a deus ex machina to push the plot along (especially that horrible Big Pussy dream). .......... I had a problem with the last two seasons because they seemed repetitive and they lacked the fun of the earlier seasons. Tony is just a complete prick now and given Richie, Ralph, Tony Uncle Al, I would be looking to take Tony out if I worked under him, just to survive. It just seems like the same story over and over again. Still a good show though. I just don't know why Chase needs years to come up with these plots. ....... (fake spoiler) I hear that in this season, Tony's brother-in-law Vinny gets out of prison. But he has difficulties adjusting so he turns witness for the feds. Tony has a dream and realizes he has to deal with him and Vinny ends up dying in some unexpected way. Actually, I didn't hear that, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be true. It sounds like almost every season. ...... I, like everyone, would like them to do the Russian story, not just because it's unresolved, but because it has great potential. I would also like to see AJ get drawn into Tony's world a bit. That's where the best remaining plotlines are to be found. Maybe even something as simple as AJ killing someone in a moment of rage and having to go to his Dad to clean it up. AJ and Meadow are the only source of good material going forward. Meadow is better at manipulation than Livia even. She needs to start dating Christopher down the line now that Adriana is gone (or some other made guy). Tony has as much chance at keeping AJ out of the mob as he does in remaining faithful to Carm.
March 13, 2006, 4:52 p.m. CST
I'm a huge fan of the show, roll with the ups and downs (i.e. most of season 4) and I must admit the dream eps do nothing for me. I didn't care for it during the last ep of season 2 (talking fish tell Tony he must wack Pussy) and certainly didn't like it last season where Tony's dream just about predicted the future concerning Tony B and his problems with the Leotardos. The show does alot of things right, but dream eps ain't one of them... And regarding the Russian, you just know that every season since they've gathered together and discussed whether or not to bring him back. I don't mind if we never see THAT character again, but it seemed to me that the Russian mob wouldve been a cool foil for our guys, I would've liked to seen them tangle with a different kind of Mafia, one that went about things differently... and finally, I think when Johnny Sack was looking at the pic of his daughters, he sincerely felt sad that he missed out on the party. He's going to start thinking, do I want to miss their life while I'm rotting behind bars, or do I want to spend it with them somewhere.. Florida maybe?

LP by the Alan Parsons Project. It fucking RULES! The first track is called "Dream Within A Dream" is the best dream sequence, EVER. Of course this bad boy dates to 1975 and most of you whipper-snappers weren't alive then, so forgive me if I date myself (I was only 5 in '75) but you fanboys would do a lot worse than to chuck over 12.99 to Tower Records and grab a copy. This is the LP that has "The Raven" on it, to boot. Oh, yeah...GREAT EPISODE!!! I, too, missed the walk down the drive to get the paper. Seeing Gino hang himself is as close as I ever want to get to seeing someone off himself, save for the one dude in "Bowling for Columbine", which was sadly all too real (((shudder))). Uncle Junior takes the cake. And Bobby Baccala in his engineer's hat...HI-LARIOUS. Love to see him off somebody in that. See you next Sunday!

If nothing is resolved, is you bring characters into a story and then just have them doing things with no beginning/middle/end...then it's just a bunch of stuff that happens. Yes, it's like that in real life, but it shouldn't be that way in stories else there's no reason to even watch the fricken thing! I'm not looking for major "let's tie everything all up in a neat package and spoon feed the fans" type of resolution. But Jesus...give us SOMEthing! And I agree with chickychow, I didn't really need to know what happened to THAT Russian, but nothing happened with the Russian mob at all. It just kinda laid flat. And that's really my beef. If you don't resolve some things, the whole thing just lays flat. Also, what is with the FBI chick? Two years ago she had a personality, she had a kid and a husband when she was trying to infiltrate the family via Adriana. I mean, she was acting like a real human and then all of a sudden she reveals herself to Adriana and she becomes ROBOT WOMAN! It's like her entire personality was erased. Gone were any mention of her husband or her life...which is fine, but the writers also gave her a lobotomy too in the script department. WTF?

If by saying "in and out of the picture" you really meant "in 2 episodes of last season with a combined screen time of less than 6 minutes total" then you're right. Don't be bitter that a quasi-fan got to go the premiere and you didn't. That's just life, pal.

They were making a big deal about Tony and Carm going to the sushi bar ALL episode...yet it went really no where. Ok...um...they like the restaurant. And that adds to the story how again? That continues it how exactly? They kept cutting to the Asian waitress serving them, for no reason other than to cut to her. Will this have a pay off anywhere? Will Tony get sick from the sushi at some point? Now that Tony is in a coma for the next few shows or so, will Carm now get sick? Is Tony doing the waitress? WTF again? All these little slices do NOT add to the story...only in that Carm and Tony are having fun kind of together...yet Tony bought her that Porshe as if he had a guilty conscience. Yet he didn't have one that I could tell. And no, I don't know where the story is going and others have pointed that out as to why it makes this series great. That you can't predict where it's going. But the thing is, it doesn't really go ANYwhere! It's fine to have something keep you guessing and not being predictable...but for Christsake, at least GO somewhere.

I've seen others above talk about how unresolved storylines are more "real life". Ok, then how about this...let's make it totally real life. Let there be a episode of just Uncle Junior sitting on the couch watching a movie. For the entire show. That's real life...people sit and watch movies for hours while sitting on the couch. Unresolved stories are usually the hallmark of bad storytelling. Ungifted writing. Everyone is so amazed at how great the dialog is, and it is. But the over-all, big-picture of the story that is "The Sopranos" is pretty weak. But hey, good times right?

Well if I remember right ... the chick with the husband and baby was replaced by the FBI shortly after she revealed herself to Adrianna .. something about Ad's emotional detachment to someone she thought was her friend. So they replaced her with the robotic super bitch who has been .. well .. a super bitch in every episode .. so not really a change in attitude for her .. peace
March 14, 2006, 11:39 a.m. CST
I, for the life of me, am trying to see what was going on in that episode. That's why I like it, though. No simple answers, just a lot of buildup. Hey, it's only the first episode of the season. I believe it was only used to show, in subtle and frustrating ways, how much the family has changed from the last season. You can look at the sushi, stomach parasite caught from Afghanistan, even Tony getting shot in the stomach as an omnious metaphor for things to come in the next few episodes. Even though things are good, as Tony exclaims...maybe there might be something a little "unsettling" brewing in the stomach. Sorry, had to get a little deep there. Or, at least think I'm getting deep! But, hey, Chase seemed to get a little deep with a William Burrough's monologue at the beginning. Still can't figure that sucker out. Remember, these writers don't just write to write. I believe they think about everything they put into the show. It's like Lost. People complain because no big revelations are revealed. In Soprano's, people complain because no big hits are made. The joys in the show are the little subtle things that can get overlooked. Pure genius, if you ask me.
March 14, 2006, 11:43 a.m. CST
asking all those questions is a GOOD thing. I wouldn't take that as a sign of anything poor. It's a testament to the writing of the show that, god forbid, you have to think about things on your own. Keep asking the questions!

First episode was pretty good. We've been pretty turned off from the Sopranos the past two seasons. Seasons 1 and 2 rocked, but it's really been downhill from there. I even felt last night was just so depressing. It was like going to church (i.e, a self-imposed obligation) rather than something to anticipate. But the whole sort of self-contained storyline about winning the lottery and realizing suicide is the only honorable option....that was quite good. Episode 2 sounds like more of the boring,though.

I want both Furio and Feech to come back. That'll shake things up bigtime. Furio I'm willing to bet will return before the series is through. Feech, however, I doubt. For whatever reason they wrote that character in, made him extremely entertaining, then didn't know what to do with him so wrote him out. He should get released from prison carrying a HUGE grudge against Tony and Chris...

I doubt that they'll allow Feech's character to make a return to the Jersey crew. The actor that portrayed Feech (Robert Loggia), was having a hard time remembering his lines. Chase, instead of killing his character off, sent him back to prison.
