    I haven't seen the Sopranos but isn't the end the part people wanted him to flesh out?

    Only morons, there was heavy handed foreshadowing and allusions throughout.

    Why do we need a prequel or something that wasn’t good

    I’m not sure it’s even debatable to say it’s a top 5 show all time

    I’ve tried to watch the show now on my third time. First two times made in into mid/late season 2. On season 3 now.

    It’s not on my top 10-20 as of now.

    I find this to be top class bullshit. Didn’t your brother date an Italian. No chance they didn’t watch and didn’t love the show.

    About to finish 3rd watch.

    Such a drastic change after season 3.
    4 and 5 are so dark and depressing.

    Forgot how stupid the Vito shit was. And the Kevin finerty dream crap, although the scene with Tony b trying to get him to go into the house was good.

    Much of season 6 part 1 just came off as filler episodes.

    HBO made Chase make the last season longer, so part 1 is pretty much just filler episodes.

    For the whole run-up to the “Sopranos” prequel film so far, casting news has been associated with one title, “The Many Saints of Newark.”

    Now, Deadline reports that the film’s latest title is simply “Newark," and that it will be released on Sept. 25, 2020.

    The film, co-written by “Sopranos” creator David Chase and Lawrence Konner, is reportedly set in the 1960s during Tony Soprano’s childhood, circa the time of the Newark riots. “Sopranos” (and “Game of Thrones”) alum Alan Taylor is directing the movie for New Line.

    The cast of “Newark” will feature 19-year-old Michael Gandolfini, James Gandolfini’s son, as a young Tony. Alessandro Nivola will play Dickey/Dickie Moltisanti, father to Christopher Moltisanti, who serves as a mentor to young Tony.
