    A documentary on Netflix called Fear City absolutely blew my mind. It has secret recordings of the original mafia. The Sopranos took loads of the stories and put them in the show. What really excited me was a secret recording of a family boss called Tony. It sounds exactly like James Gandolfini after season one. He must have had voice coaching or something. He grew into the role and probably sat at home researching how to improve. I’ve never seen acting like it since.

    But watch that documentary.

     

     

    I was actually really disappointed in that documentary. I can't imagine how they could have presented that information in any more of a bland way.

    I tried watching Mad Men three times and I just didn't get into it either. There must be something about it that I'm missing as it's highly rated but it seemed like a live action cartoon.

    Mad Men was the epitome of style over substance. You could skip a whole season and miss nothing.

    The Wire

    The Sopranos

    The Shield

    The West Wing. 


    The four greatest telly series ever. 

     

    I finally got around to starting The West Wing the other week.

     

    I struggled with how cute the dialogue was. Then I saw in the credits "Aaron Sorkin" 

     

    Absolutely abhor his writing; it's as if Tarantino wasn't trying to write great dialogue, but just tried to show off how intelligent/funny he is. Seen him on a few chat shows as well, Colbert et al, and he's every bit the smug twat you'd imagine him to be.

    We’re probably going over old ground but if he was whacked who would take over? NJ doesn’t have many / any credible candidates left, Paulie would be a disaster but could be a useful idiot to any NY family who wants to control them. 

     

    I can imagine the other mob bosses sanctioning the hit on Tony, he created a

    lot of noise in his short tenure as boss. They could easily want someone more stable perhaps Patsy?

     

    The only way I've ever really believed the 'Tony died' theory is that the heads of the other families sanctioned the hit for taking out the head of a five families family without the others' say so.

    Effectively, Jersey becomes the "glorified crew" New York always derides them as. Probably someone like Patsy, gets to keep his action while kicking up to New York.

    Or Butchie sold him out all along. 
     

    The way the guy in the Members Only Jacket entered ahead of AJ and then went to the toilet, there’s no way he didn’t Michael Corleone him. 

     

    "There's differences Chris-tuh-fuh between this and the Luca Brassi Michael Corleone situation."
