    Pine Barrens

    Best episode ever, Pauly and Christopher eating ketchup out of thr sachet.

  • The last episode in season one. I really like the finishing scene, the whole family gathered at Vesuvio at a stormy night with the lights out. And the camera kind of glides away. That was cool.

    yeah that one was good, and the episode that ends with a car crash outside satriales and all the guys comes outside to see what happened, and i think furio and silvio shouts at the guy who crashed

    My favorite episode is "College" I think. One of the few episodes where their kids aren't just complete brats, for one thing. And there's a lot that happens in that episode, but it doesn't seem too heavy.

    Another one of my favorites, just for the opening sequence, is the first show of the second season. Sinatra singing "It Was a Very Good Year" over the montage of everything that's developed (or not) since the end of the previous season. When I first saw that episode, I hated it. Every time since then, I've loved it. It's like the show really came of age in those three or four minutes.

    yeah, that was fantastic.

    I actually couldn't decide ... but I loved "Pine Barrens" too, hilarious. And really great was this episode and especially the scene in which Pussy died ... i'm not through with it (episode 4, season 5)

    Pine Barrens was awesome
    Episode 2 season 6 when Tony got the whole "Kevin Finerty" thing
    Episode 19 season 6 (I think) when AJ tries to commit suicide
    The episode when they kill Big Pussy :(

    Hahha, i start laughing just at the thought of that episode. Love the way paulie whines about how cold his feets are :D

    Good music has no genre!
  • Where's Johnny, the ending with Tony and Uncle Junior brought a tear to my eye! Also really liked a couple from the last season, Stage 5 (another great ending, with Evidently Chickentown) and Remember When, if only for the bit when Paulie wonders whatever happened to Chevy Chase!

    "Long Term Parking" and "The Fleshy Part Of The Thigh"

    Obviously I love "Pine Barrens" (and I was particularly pleased that Channel 4 in the UK conspired to show this episode on Christmas day last year) but I have two other favourites:

    "Long Term Parking" was so shocking the first time I saw it, it left me reeling. The episode was structured so that you gradually began to think that Chris would betray Tony and actually do a runner with Ade. Think how this could have played out over proceeding episodes, with Chrissy and Ade joining the witness protection program and both slowly falling apart as the Sopranos family was brought down piece-by-piece. As somebody else on this board said, for all her faults Adriana was basically the only true 'innocent' in the whole New Jersey family, so you always had to hope she would escape 'the life' one way or another. But, no, The Sopranos has its own brutal logic and the eventual shocking outcome underlined how ruthless Tony, Sil and Chris (and any of them) could really be when it came to protecting their interests. And looking back, you can see that this was the point that the whole house of cards began to fall for Chris. As joint conspirators, there was supposed to be a new level of trust between him and T but it just didn't work out like that.

    The other one I am really into at the moment is "The Fleshy Part Of The Thigh" (it was on C4 last Thursday night) where Tony is recovering in hospital from deranged Uncle Junior's shot at him. The machinations between Vito and Paulie over the $100k that the weezing and stressed-out Sil orders them to give Carmela are fascinating. It shows that, at heart, neither man has any true loyalty. They are expecting the pack to get shuffled very soon. I also like the way that Carmela slyly catches that look on Paulie and Vito's faces and later warns Tony never to trust them. This has ramifications later on in series six when Tony considers wacking Paulie. You also get to witness just how truly nasty and f*****d-up Paulie is from his silent reaction to Jason Barone's Mother pleading with Tony to spare her son's life. The other bit I like is the Bell Labs scientist chracter Tony is in hospital with (Dr. Lior Plepler) who tries to explain the strange idea behind quantum physics (c.f. Schrodinger's equation) to Tony and the other guys during a boxing match on TV - using the analogy of two tornadoes!! How good must a television series about the mob be if it can manage to weave in a bit of quantum physics? Tony's arguments with Bob Brewster about evolution and the ethics behind Viagra are also classic, as is Hesh's reaction to his wife's charitable opinion of the preacher Brewster. There is so much more clever stuff in this episode, it just has to be an all time favourite.

    That's it for now. I reserve the right to change my opinion because the more I watch each episode, the more I realise is actually going on!

    In Camelot (2004)

    This was the episode where Tony S. meets his father's mistress, Fran Felstein, at a funeral for one of Tony's relatives.

    Fran, played by Polly Bergen, was so sweet, so classy, and full of so many important anecdotes about the past, which helped answer many questions for Tony.

    Since this is The Sopranos we're talking about here, it can't be just sweetness alone. We also get the sad tale of Christopher's screenwriter friend from rehab, J.T. Dolan, who seems to be doing so well, until Christopher introduces him to high stakes gambling, with all the unpleasantly realistic results from getting drawn to another addiction, to yet another, and so the downward spiral takes another one to oblivion.

    Kudos to director/actor Steve "Mister Pink" Buscemi for yet another brilliant job well done!

    Pine Barrens & The Blue Comet

  • Pine Barrens is brilliant, though I must go for A Hit is a Hit.

    Defiler, Visiting Day, Chris telling that guy to "spike up", the line "Excuse me but i've recorded in DENMARK" :D

    Also, Tonys story about John Gotti giving him a ride home in the ice cream truck, the box of sand he gives to cusamano to fuck with him...

    the whole episode is brilliant.
