I watched it all over 10 years ago and liked it but didn't think it was as good as The Wire and The Shield but I'm on my first rewatch now and am absolutely loving it, it's definitely on a par with the shows I mentioned. I think you need to be a little older to fully appreciate it.

It's worth pointing out the the triggering events of this iconic TV show that has won every award and now has a movie are 1) going to see a therapist and 2) oral sex.

I went to see the film tonight. Better than I was expecting. 

8/10

 

Beautifully shot. Extraordinarily dense plot that moved well. Some proper funny moments (although more dramatic than comedic) and it pulled off period piece mob movie better than the Irishman. 
 

Not so keen on the fan service or having young versions of certain characters that don’t moved the plot along. I’ll definitely need to watch it again to pick up some subtleties.

Genuinely forgot how funny this show is.

Really enjoying the 'Talking Sopranos' podcast/videocast available on youtube with Steven Schirripa and Michael Imperioli. Seeing cast members interviewed and their stories is very interesting.

Out of rep. Didn't even know that was a thing.

Yeah it’s good I did find that Steven Schirripa comes across like a twat sometimes and had a habit of talking over people in the first few. Should go back to it as it was still very enjoyable and interesting to hear.

Yeah,Schirripa is much less refined and knowledgeable than Imperioli. He'd probably argue that he is just so happy at what he achieved on the show that he gets a bit overexcited sometimes.

Love a good Mafia lie

Season 5 begins to show that the whole thing os lies. That is then the whole theme of season 6 - The families of Johnny, Vito and (when he’s in hospital) Tony, all cut adrift out of greed.

I really think they missed a great opportunity by not having Noah attempt to punch Tony's lights out.

 

It would have been very nice to see the aftermath of that.

Not really about the Sopranos, but a shortish interview with van Zandt about his book. The loon.

I've been trying audio books lately and this is my next in line, although fuck knows when I'll get to it as I'm finding they're not as easy to listen to as I thought they would be.

I've never really fancied them to be honest. I'd prefer to have music on in the car, or read on the train/ at home.

I walk a lot (probably 40-50 miles in the working week) and listen to some podcasts and just thought I'd give it a try. I'm on my 3rd month, 2nd book. The problem I have with it, is in essence they're no different to books in as much as you need to give it 100% attention, so as you're walking along just what happens around you is distracting. That's before you factor in whatever shit is running through your head - in my case I'll be walking between clients sites often, so the last meeting or the next is in your mind. So I don't think I'll stick with it - I'm going to give it 6 months (you get a new book each month) and see if I get to like them.

Probably posted before but Chase was talking once about how they often had to write the characters' dialogue with subtext because a lot of what they said had a double meaning. He said, in real life, the whole concept of 'breaking balls' was basically about probing for weaknesses in each other, so if you let people get away with too many snide remarks pretty soon you'd lose your sports book and be living in your car. What a life!
