"The Sopranos" Appreciation Thread

Bada Bing!...Gobb-a-gool...

I just had to start this for the most intellegently written and most brilliant ensemble acting in the history of television.

Being sicilian, at times at get pissed off at the stereotypes (as I'm sure that my cousin U2loopy will agree) but I have to admit it's a great show that's very well written.... Hi Uncle Charlie

We only at the 3rd season here in the Netherlands, so I envy those who've seen more. There's no absolute favourite for me... or wait...

Silvio's Godfather imitations! Unfortunately he does too few of them (although his general behaviour is one big imitation of the Godfather in general).

I'd skip the 5th season if I were any of you who haven't seen it yet.


It's been SO freaking slow this year, and Sunday's episode didn't help matters.


But yeah, other than this current season, to the Sopranos.

Curb Your Ethusiasm has proven that Larry David was an important aspect of "Seinfeld"'s success.

I have to agree with Angel: this season is lacking. And I thought last season was slow, but this year just feels stagnant.

My ruminations on the show:

1) Tony needs to lose a lot of weight. I know the producers made him gain weight to keep the role, but he looks worn-out and tired. I suppose that might be what they're going for, but everytime I see him I feel bloated. (shrugs)

2) Edie Falco is hot. Everyone I know thinks I'm crazy for finding an older woman as attractive as her, but I can't help it. She's so sexy and intellegent.

3) Michael Imperiolli is so likeable I feel guilty. He kills or injures someone in every episode, but I feel like he's my best friend.

Agree on all points (and I'm also in you agreeing with me on the Larry David thing - is it weird that I find him hot? A balding man in his 50's.... wouldn't be the first time *cough Silvio cough* )

As a Sicilian who grew up in North Jersey, I can say I've honestly known my fair share of "characters".
Now my family was never involved with the mafia in any way.
But alot of the show is right on in terms of accuracy in its portrayal of characters, events, and locations.

Funny thing is: alot of Italians in this state now consider themselves as "one of the gang" since that show came out.
They're a bunch of morons.

Best show on television, no question. Its the reason I have HBO.

However, the dream sequence last week was too long. Too many things happened (very important things) that we heard about after the fact.

The show is obviously trying harder and harder to turn Tony S. into an evil character but its not working for me. I'm still completely fascinated by him.

VIVA TONY!
