Just finished this show about an hour ago. Started it like two to three weeks ago on HBO On Demand. Incredible show, but more than anything & anyone of course, Mr. James Gandolfini just wow on so many levels.

Always loved the intro song too. Just curious, did Nas pick up any of it from the "got yourself a gun" part in his own song "Got Yourself A Gun"?

Nice. On Demand is so great. HD as well & all. Don't absolutely have to buy the DVDs or blu-rays of a lot of shows.

 

This show introduced me to Big Mouth Billy Bass. I might get one eventually, just sucks that they aren't as cheap as they once were when I didn't know about it.

 

Show had a lot of fine Italian Women throughout its run.

 

That Asian dude with Uncle Junior was nuts. What was up with him? He never seemed to get better.

 

I actually thought for some reason at the end of the show or near to it they would finally reveal somehow some truths about several deaths & incidents that took place that stayed secret. There were several of course, but the two biggest ones for me that I felt would get revealed due to being so closely connected directly to the Soprano family Meadow & Carmela for instance were Jackie & Ade's. I thought they'd find a way to do that for even more drama. Imagine the amount that would've produced.

I love Italian women.

 

Dr Melfi, Adriana, Charmaine, etc.

 

Asian dude with Junior???

 

Are you talking about Jackie Jr? Vito shot him

 

And Sil killed Adriana

I know that. I did watch the whole show. I meant that I thought maybe the writers would find a way to reveal the truths about their deaths/incidents to Meadow & Carmela respectively for even more drama.

 

Too bad for T he never got to truly bang Dr. Melfi. There was a time when it was somewhat close, but it just never seemed to materialize. Also, you could tell how Melfi aged a bit in the later years of the show, but those legs of hers always seemed to remain top notch.

 

Carmela had a surprisingly nice ass.

 

Too bad we could never see Tony confront Furio.

 

I also always wished that Father guy would get the crap beat out of him at some point. He just always seemed so smug & kinda fake.

 

Yeah Asian dude with Junior you don't remember? He'd snap sometimes and just go off on people, get all violent.

Well, the finale should give you a hint as to what the powers that be think about revealing things.

 

Carmela's ass was an abomination yuck

 

I don't remember the asian dude. what season was he introduced?

I wish Richie Aprile would've stayed longer on the show. He was so crazy. Dude snapped at almost anything. Was certainly one of the more entertaining dudes to watch.

Pretty sure it was the last season.

 

Can't believe Junior got off living still after two attempts at killing T. If anything, I thought T would've & should've killed him after the first time despite being family. I guess he was too important to the story or something.

yeh I remember him now. that guy played on something else...a movie or something

 

Richie was a little [expletive]. Fresh outta the pen and wanted to run [expletive]. Bet he never expected Janice to put that hole in his chest

 

Junior was funny. Actually, you had quite a few hilarious moments on that show. Drama, Humor, Music, Fine Women...show had it all

^ I have not either except for maybe the first two episodes. I was gonna' get into that since I have the On Demand feature, but chose "The Sopranos" instead. Maybe I'll try "The Wire" again for good sometime.
