Well fellow Soprano fans, it's almost that time (March 12).

http://www.hbo.com/sopranos/?ntrack_para1=leftnav_category0_show0 (scroll down to "Watch the Trailer")

Interesting note. If you happen to watch the commercial above, look who is sitting at the head of the table opposite Tony. None other than Phil Leotardo. Looks like he's taking over Johnny Sack's territory while he is in the can. Judging that him and Tony hate each other, I'm sure this season will be very interesting.

I'm also curious as to who's baby Tony is hoisting?

I'm pumped for this season to start!!!

Thank God for TIVO, this way my wife can send me episodes on DVD while I'm deployed. Ugh, stupid war on terrorism.

Hi all,
Lifetime Steelers fan from Athens GA posting his inaugural message. To the fella talking about being deployed (waterboy?), first I want to say thanks in a way that exceeds all possible definitions of the word for the sacrifices you have made and continue to make on a daily basis. When I figure out exactly how to do that I will post it here. Instead I can send you dvds of stuff I have on my pvr as well. My wife just got me one of those DVD burners for my birthday (which was the Tuesday before Super Bowl XL) and I can't think of a better way to break it for real than sending stuff out to folks like yourself. Either way, hang in there and keep on kicking ass!

I'm pumped! I tell ya that episode where tony wrecks phil into the parked car as he was chasing him for the $$ that phil owed him. After the crash tony walks over and starts choking him and asking for his $$, when he leaves the car he tells everyone looking on that everything is ok and that he called for help! Damn funny!

My guess is that phil will be the acting boss for NY.

Paulie is still the funniest guy on the show! When he and Christopher chased the russian through the snow covered woods was maybe the funniest show ever!

At one point in time James Gandolfini wanted more money and he also stated he did not want to do the series anymore because he felt it gave Italian-Americans a black eye. That was one reason for last seaons series to take so damn long.

The main reason in my opinion, because they can afford to take this long. It's not as if they lose viewers, the total opposite actually.

Personally, I think it's a stupid idea for this to be the last season. The viewership grows every year. It doesn't make sense if you ask me. There are rumors that after this season they are thinking about putting out a movie. I haven't heard anything about the movie in a while though so I would not hold my breath.

I know that it has been said that this would be the last season, but I have not heard David Chase say that this will be the last season.......Maybe I'm just blinded by the fact that I don't want to see the show go! The last 3 months has been great, watching the series from start to finish! Best show ever!IMO.

David Chase has stated that a seventh season is a "possibility", but that's about it. The cast and crew have stated they would be willing to keep their commitment to the show if a seventh season occurs. There have been strong rumors that this is the final season. I'm hoping it is not.

Update: HBO announced that David Chase agreed to film 8 more "bonus" episodes after in addition for 12 that are scheduled for Season 6. I assume as a short Season 7. It will air about 6 months after Season 6 ends.

I sure hope that Uncle Junior dies or better yet someone "whacks" him out.
He's a bitter old SOB who's always complaining about something........he needs to go.

I would love it if one time when Junior insults Bobby Baccala that Bobby would just punch that old bastard right between the eyes and bust those damn Hubble Telescopes he wears.

I agree 83 that has to be the worst! Not very fond of the "Dream" episode either. I still think that anthony jr gets involved somehow. In the previews for the new season they also show where Philly is saying that someone has to go.....Hmmmmm, wonder who it is?

There is no doubt in my mind that Phil and Tony are going to bump heads and it's going to get very, very, very ugly when all is said and done.

Going by the commercials, it seems alot of interesting issues are going to come up. Going back to what Ambridge said, I did notice Bobby "Bacala" Baccalieri flipping out on somebody. I'm not sure exactly who it was though.

There is alot of speculation that Meadow will eventually take over for Tony which I don't see happening judging that the mob in America frowns on women in the mob (let alone a Godfather). I also don't see Anthony Soprano Jr. taking over. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up dead in an alley way (drug overdose?). At least that's what I'm hoping. I think the kid is a horrible actor. Just my opinion. The most logical is Christopher. He's considered blood. He's been groomed by Tony. Tony Blundetto getting clipped also helped his chances. Unless something drastic happens, Christopher in all right deserves to take over the reigns when Tony is gone.

First off, Bobby was going after paulie. I do agree with Chris being the logical pick, but in past seasons Chris has been quick to get very upset with tony. When tony gave the casino to Tony B, Chris got very upset. Also when Jackie jr took down the card game, Tony would not let Chris take out Jackie jr. Christoper is a hot head and I think by the end of the show he will be taken out! With word coming down that there will be eight episodes come next Jan, I think it is safe that Tony will be fine through this season!

At the same time Tony has showed much love towards Christopher. I also recall Tony stating on one occasion that Christopher is next in line after he's gone. Like I said, that could easily change if something drastic happens, but I don't see Tony calling the hit on Christopher. If anybody does it, it will be NY.

Granted, Christopher is a hot head, but who isn't on the show? lol. If anything, the majority of the time, Christopher had good reason to be pissed at Tony. Who knows though? That's what makes the show great.

Bobby Bacala was really the only one that is not a hot head. Thats why in the preview it's so shocking to see him that mad.


Remember the episode where Tony tells Janice about her off blowing roadies and Bobby looks like he is going to blow a gasket, but he does not.....Very cool head!

While he is a grumpy old man, I think Uncle Junior is a funny guy. It was hilarious when him and Tony would go back and forth. Janice is the one I want to see "off" the show. Also, I think Robert Iler is a horrible actor. Those two off the show would be fine by me.

Here's what I was thinking today. Tony is down with a gunshot. The gun is under the bed and Junior is hiding in a closet. Would the remaining family think this was a hit on Tony? If he is under sedation for a few days and Junior starts rambling about an intruder, maybe Christopher gets it into his head that this was a hit on Tony? In fact I think they might come to the conclusion that the guy who shot Tony then went to his house and hung himself. He did have a beef with Tony since he didn't allow him to leave the family and move to Florida. There is a motive.

They then knock off his wife and steal the $2M inheritance the guy was talking about.

Good call Dom. Sounds like you should be writing scripts for the show.

When Tony gets back on his feet I wonder if he holds a grudge against Bobby and Janice??
Tony wouldn't have gotten shot in the first place if Bobby and/or Janice had been over at Junior's looking after him.

Vito's BJ will not be his downfall in my opinion. Him thinking and possibly acting on the idea of himself being "the boss of this family" will eventually get him in trouble.

Personally, I don't think much will stem from Tony getting shot by Uncle Junior. Cooler heads will prevail in my opinion. All will be explained and Uncle Junior will eventually go into a home, something Tony did not want to happen. The actions that took place on Sunday will leave him no choice. Just my two cents.

Good points! You may be onto something here. The thing is though, Chase has been very good about leading you one way then hitting you in a different one. I've been hearing rumors that this was the last episode of season six and that everyone going forward will work its way back to this episode! I don't really buy that, but we will see. Year of the "rat", sounds like there will be many more who get pinched by the fbi and start to work with them, just to keep them out of prison! Meadow though, WOW! Nice strip tease in the beg of the show! I would like to see more of that! I still think that Phinn will spill the beans on Vito and the bj.

I agree that Tony won't let it die down, but I don't see Janice or Bobby getting whacked over Uncle Junior losing his mind, grabbing a gun and capping Tony. That's what I meant when I said cooler heads will prevail and I don't see this specific situation going any further than Tony laying in a hospital bed while making a full recovery. A first episode heart jumper so to speak?

In my opinon, it's going to be very difficult for the feds to pin anything on Junior Soprano for this incident. The guy is crazy, literally. They won't be able to make anything stick. If Junior talks, they can't use it in court because once again, the guy is literally crazy.

Think about this, Junior my be crazy, but if he tells the fbi something that is true and they follow up, it could lead to trouble! I think Junior will be wacked, not because of any wrong doing, but to make sure he does'nt start talking! The wack will be fast and without warning so that Junior can go in peace! Remember this is just a hunch.

Did anyone else get the thought that Vito had something else in mind when he offered to take AJ home??

Looks like the start of a possible power struggle getting ready to start-up next week.

While I wasn't drifting off, I was getting pretty close. I wish they would have focused more on the "business" aspect of things while Tony is away, instead of "Mr. Finnerty" for a solid fourty-five minutes. While I'm not a fan of somebody getting whacked in every episode (would be very unrealistic if that was the case), I felt they should have focused on other matters for a longer period of time.

Personally, I hope something goes seriously wrong during AJ's "expected" whacking of Uncle Junior and AJ get's the bullet instead. The whole scene of him talking to the press reminded me of John Gotti opening his mouth any chance he could get. He's an arrogant prick in my opinion. Here's to hoping Silvio or Christopher take over when and If Tony goes at some point in time.

I was distracted with something when the "Mr. Finnerty" thing came up. What was the deal with that........was Tony having a dream while in his coma or was that something that actually happened in his past??
Was the Alzheimers diagnosis an explanation why Tony was being so nice to Uncle Junior??

This is my interpretation on the episode.

Tony is in a coma. He drifts away to another life as a legitimate business man and the life he could have led if he was not in the mob. Notice the voice of his kids were not Meadow's or AJ's and his wife's voice was not Carmella's. Did you also notice how mild-mannered Tony was when he was in this....."place"? From the lady who would not let him into the convention to the guy at the bar that cracked a joke in his direction about the "Lexus". Normally Tony would have reamed that woman out and slammed that guy's head on the bar. We've all seen Tony's temper when it comes to smaller things. The bartender at the Bing for example. I can't count how many times he beat the hell out of that guy for simply looking at him wrong.

As for Alzheimers diagnosis, I'm not exactly sure. He has always been pretty good to Uncle Junior considering Uncle Junior tried to have him whacked. I'm taking the "Alzheimer diagnosis" with a grain of salt since it was brought up while he is in a coma and frankly, I'm not sure where that is leading. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out.

Yeah I was thinking the same.

Also, I think junior will not go to jail for the crime, he is nuts. Vito needs squashed. And I think it will be by Paulie, for Vitos thinking that he will be Boss. Chris, I would think would be the boss, but he flies off the handle too fast. I think it will be Paulie, or Falco. But we will see a power struggle for sure starting next week, all this will happen, and in the mean time, Tony will be getting better.

Going by the preview on HBO this morning, it looks like the show will start to pick up this weekend. Tony is finally talking and it appears there was no type of brain damage done. It appeared to show Bobby "Bacala" Baccalieri getting mixed up in some type of drug transaction and Carmella telling Tony that "he's no good" (not referring to Tony himself). They also showed Paulie "Walnuts" Gaultieri whacking somebody.

My guess, Bacala is pissed and desperate because he's not getting his normal cut so he turns to dealing drugs in order to make ends meet. That normally leads to either him becoming a rat or ending up in the ground. Carmella was either referring to Paulie or Vito. In the last episode she looked back at both Vito and Paulie after they gave her the "package" while they were in the elevator with a suspicious look on her face. As for who Paulie was beating with what appeared to be a pipe of some sort, I have no idea.

Should start to get interesting now.

I got a feeling Christopher may have signed his own death warrant by telling Tony he wants to get back into the movie business. If I remember correctly Tony's already told him(a season or two ago) that he-(Christopher) can't properly take care of family business and following a personal whim with the movie career.
The family was to always come first.

Not sure Tony was all there at the time unless he is playing "possum". He would be too drugged up in reality. Good reasoning there 83 on Bacala. Just think he is too chicken at the moment to do that. And i think Paulie wacks Vito, but might be too easrly in the season for that.

Good reasoning there 83 on Bacala. Just think he is too chicken at the moment to do that.

While I would not use the word "chicken" to describe Bacala, I do agree that he tends to be the more mild mannered and layed back one of the group. The way I'm looking at this situation is that Uncle Junior is on planet Saturn and Bacala is watching his cut diminish while also having to worry about Janice and the baby, I think he will make a decision (drugs) that could possibly be the end of him.

Keep in mind, in years past he only had to worry about number one and towards the end of last season, Janice. With a baby in the family, it changes his situation (his needs, his wants and his desires) immensely. I think Bacala is getting fed up. The guy was a complete mess in the last episode. Silvio was on a stretcher and the first thing Bacala asked him about was a question pertaining to his cut. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Just my opinion and hunch.

I think that's the way the previous season worked out where the stories developed kinda slow then the episodes in the middle and end started to heat-up.

I gotta quit watching those damn previews to the next weeks episode. What I think might happen and what actually does happen are usually two different things.
Still kinda fun to speculate though.

I hear ya. I think Paulie is really frickin up. He has lied a couple of times to Tony already. Like at that last pick up, they said there was over $1 million, and he said there was only $750,000. And after Tony told that kids mother that her son would be ok, Paulie does that?

83-Steelers-43
04-03-2006, 03:24 PM
Yeah, both Paulie and Vito have been the two that Tony should keep an eye on. I'm surprised that things between NJ and NY have been going so smoothly. While I have no doubts that will not last for much longer, three episodes in and zero hostility between the two families is sort of surprising.

After two years of waiting, I was hoping Chase would get off the whole "start off slow, pick it up midway through and then a big ending" horse. Oh well, patience is not one of my strong points.

83-Steelers-43
04-10-2006, 02:49 PM
I'm hoping he put a bullet in his head so "The Sopranos" can move on from this topic. It's been drawn out long enough. BTW, "Murder Machine" (mentioned in the article) is an excellent book for those who are interested.

"Made Men" is also a good book. True story of the DeCalvacante Family (The Real Sopranos) out of Jersey. A few wiseguys made references to "The Sopranos" in the book and a few of them felt and still do feel that somebody in their crew was working with David Chase because some of the events that occured in "The Sopranos" also occured in the DeCalvacante Family.

Well, I've always learned not to jump to conclusions with this show. I'll believe Vito is dead when I see Vito's head spread out against a wall. As for Tony, he's lost a step. It seems as if he's getting soft. While it's understandable with what all he went through, it's not good for business nor for his own well being.

Hopefully he can bounce back from this and go back to being the same ruthless, unforgiving S.O.B from years past....lol.

Vito should pull a big ***** and whack both of them! Back in season 1 or 2 I remember ***** ran into another wise guy in some card store while he was with the fbi. It did'nt take puss long to go to the guys home and put heat to him. I don't think that is what will happen, but thats what most of them would have done.

What about johnny sac crying when the fbi took him back to the cage! I think that phill may try to put the hit on sac! Taking out rusty is a bad idea! Jersey gets along good with rusty and his crew, making waves there could be leathal. I do agree with how slow it seems to be moving, but chase has done this in just about every season.

Between Vito's problem and Meadow's political rants, I'm starting to question David Chase and where he is going with this show. While I'm not doubting there will be some type of blockbuster ending, up until now I believe it's been horribly written.

For what it's worth, after watching last nights show and watching the previews for next weeks show, "it looks like things are going to pick up". My buddies and I have been saying that for the last three weeks.

Last nights episode was pretty flat and it looks like this season is going to be mostly devoted to stories with fluff and filler to stretch out another year.

Personally, I have not heard much from the media for this season as I have in past seasons.

While I enjoy the way the show depicts two sides of Tony and the mob in general, the "Vito topic" is getting very old and drawn out. I'm not a homophobe, but did we really need to see Vito and that biker making out in the field? I almost spit up my gnocchi.

Going by my buddies, family and on mafia forums, they are not very impressed with this season. Horribly written for the most part. I remember when I used to look forward to Sunday nights. Now I just simply put it on and expect to see Vito for fourty-five minutes. As I've stated already, I don't need to see somebody whacked or a full scale shoot out in every episode, but I do expect to see better entertainment. To each their own though.

Very true...I thought the writing has been tremendous (the last episode was a bit over the top, I agree). The dream sequences when Tony was in a coma were awesome and filled with metaphors. I loved Bucsemi as the Angel of Death...and Tony seeing his mother's shadow in the door to the mansion...great stuff.

More Paulie this season = more entertainment in my book.

Check out the New Jersey Start Ledger's website. Their TV guy is one of the premiere Soprano's reviewers and he recaps each episode explaining plot twists and obscure references to previous seasons (and there are a lot). Sometimes I will forget about something insignificant that might of happened in, say, season 2. This guy pulls it out and links it to something in the new season. Word is he talks to Chase about the plot directly…

Here's his take from last week.: http://www.nj.com/search/index.ssf?/base/columns-0/1145853943279560.xml?starledger?colsep&coll=1

Art is definitely subjective, though. That aside, this season is getting good reviews. Nothing in the ilk of Season 4.

Hope the rest of the season picks up for you!

Well, finally........an episode worth watching this season. Vito is dead (about time) and it looks like we are going to have a mob war on our hands between Tony and Phil. Next week they are reshowing the last three episodes and the Sunday after next they will show the last episode. Eventually (six months after this last episode), the other eight episodes will be shown. Hopefully they don't suck as much as the majority of this season. From what I'm hearing on the news (FOX and CNN), the ratings dropped considerably this year. Understandable.

Thank goodness Vito is finally gone.
Chase milked that for all it was worth and yes this by far the worst season of the Sopranos......especially the last four or five episodes with the exception of tonights.

BTW-Vito and the biker guy making out in the field was bad but watching the two of them in bed last week and Vito getting rolled onto his stomach was even worse.

83-Steelers-43

I'm willing to bet the main reason why the ratings have dropped is because of the drawn out and pointless topics David Chase decided to include into this season. That's just my guess.

Well thankfully, we don't have to see that anymore. I'm not a homophobe, but did we really need to show Vito and Johnny Cakes going at it in every other episode? We got it Mr. Chase, your following the leader in Hollywood and pushing the gay agenda and while doing so you lost a good number of fans. This is only one of the reasons why this season blew (no pun intended).

Anyways.....Tony is in a very good position. Tony has a few options, he can 'DIVIDE AND CONQUER', go to Johnny Sack and let him know Phil is usurping him...that will cause Johnny to act against Phil and start a War in the NYC Family...Tony then has the option of joining sides or he can sit back and watch the two bloody each other's noses....I'd say he pledges to Johnny and Phil gets clipped. Should be interesting to see how this all pans out (hopefully, anymore I don't know).
