I'm hooked on HBO Sunday nights like a junkie on heroin (from what I understand...)
I was hooked originally by Sex in the City, then started watching Sopranos because it was on right before it. Bill got hooked on Sopranos. Now we're both hooked on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Mind of a Married Man, Arli$$...
HBO's movies are good, too, like Hysterical Blindness and the others I can't remember the names of...
Personally i was disappointed and think series is going downhill.
Approx 50 minute episode. 10 minutes of it is in regards to a stupid Bear that comes on tony's property.
Another 5 minutes is of Tony's wife completely dogging him out, and disrespecting him. Any real ganster mobster, or normal man would have put her in check real quick. I mean what kind of sympathy you want woman you are married to the Godfather and #1 ganster. Go cry a river.
Then there was about 10 minutes total time was involved with Tony and his Psychiatrists deranged physical attraction to one another, dreams, ect.
Throw in another 10-15 minutes of filler BS, there was about 10 minutes of good Mobster type action.
The rest of the show was a fricking joke and I think for the last two years they have lost ideas and now are going more mainstream TV. Show does not bring that excitement and suspense it once did. Have the first three seasons on DVD, but will not buy anymore if this episode is of what if to come.
BEST NUMBER ONE Mobster, Gangster show ever on TV was "KINGPIN" ran last summer for about 6 episodes, the best show I have ever seen on TV. Bought all the 6 episodes. They are so damn good. Go to Blockbuster and rent them, you will not be disappointed.
I'm over Jewel's, she just made a fabulous dinner for myself, Fou and Fermented, yummy! Now we are getting ready to watch Soprano's...only it's not on for another hour...ugh! I'm not sure I will make it until 10:00! Sucks getting old! <_<
We never had HBO, but I am THE biggest fan of gangster films (Goodfellas, Godfather, etc). My loving wife bought me the FIRST SEASON of The Sopranos on DVD for Christmas, thinking I *might* like it, since I'm a big Scorscese and Coppola fan...
Well, we both LOVED it! We burned through the first season so quick we had to rush out and buy the second season.
Now we're three episodes into the 2nd season, so we are a LONGGGGGG way from catching up to the 5th season that's just starting.
So anyways, just wanted to say how much we love the Soprano's! Maybe someday we'll catch up to the rest of the world!
In the meantime, here's a picture of when Tony Soprano commandered our boat last summer (he's at the helm)...
If you like the Sopranos and what not, then you have to go rent or buy
"Kingpin" - Was a series on NBC for like 6 episodes in the summer. Get the DvD's and it is Uncut, VERY nice and it was done by Aaronn SPELLING, and a few of the writers, production crew is from the Sopranos.
About the Mexican mafia. and actually the story is supposedly based on the true life of juarez cartel leader Amado Carillo Fuentes who died in 1997.
So damn fast paced, major action, very true to life. I have showed to all my friends and they cannot belive how great it was.
I believe it blows the Sopranos out of the water even season one. But the Mafia has history here, so maybe that is an overstatement.
