    Have the afternoon off and will finish the series in the next few hours. I've really enjoyed 6B so far, and shit is about to go down b/w Tony and Phil. Cheers.

    Doing a rewatch and the look Tony gives Cusamano when the other guys start asking Tony about the mafia is great, I'd be scared shitless

    I fucking love this episode. When he gives that box full of sand to Cusamano later and asks him to hang onto it for him... it's fucking hilarious.

    One of my favorite things is how they make all these guys subtly dumb as fuck. I'm watching Pine Barrens and Jackie Jr just played "ass" in Scrabble.

    Favorite season for everybody?

    Mine's season 2. I think, it's been awhile. But if that's when Richie Aprile shows up that's that best season for my money. I've been wanting to rewatch this and The Shield #glorydays

    This is the show that started the golden age of television that we enjoy today. Networks didn't realize the size of the market for quality, adult TV until this show broke the doors down imo gbr.

    I like how they also thought he could be a doctor because he knew that Ottowa is the capital of Canada. I don't know the exact line but when he's telling Meadow that he dropped out he's like "organic chemistry, micro biology, ribosomes or some shit." Cracks me up

    Junior was great the first few seasons.

    Great show, better on rewatch when you can knock out the show episodes rather than having to wait a week for three in a row.

    Phil Leotardo getting his head ran over was quite enjoyable though.

    EXCLUSIVE: David Chase is finally ready to return to the New Jersey turf of his iconic creation The Sopranos. New Line has purchased the screenplay The Many Saints of Newark, the working title for a feature prequel of The Sopranos that is set in the era of the Newark riots in the 60s. That was a time when the African-Americans and the Italians of Newark were at each other’s throats, and amongst the gangsters of each group, those conflicts became especially lethal.

    The script was written by Chase and Lawrence Konner, the prolific screen and television writer whose credits include The Sopranos

    Some of the beloved characters from the series will appear in the film. I couldn’t get any more information about the plot, but the time period indicates there will be room for Tony Soprano’s father, Giovanni “Johnny Boy,” the former captain of the Soprano crew (played in flashbacks by Joseph Siravo), and a younger version of his wife Livia (played indelibly in the show’s first season by Nancy Marchand), and Tony’s uncle Junior, played by Chianese.

    Chase will serve as producer as well as co-writer, and he will be involved in selecting a director.

    Who’s your most hated character? I mean this in terms of rivalry/pushback/whatever to Tony. So like Richie Aprile, Ralph, Phil Leotardo, late season, crotchety Johnny Sack, season one Junior, etc. I think I gotta go Richie although Phil is up there.

    Paulie is the goat character btw.

    Richie for me but Livia Soprano is right there. As much as I hated Ralph he brought too many laughs to hate more than a lot of other characters. Paulie is definitely the best/funniest character.

    Richie and early Junior are strong candidates but the correct answer is Phil and it’s not even close. He had more power than any of the others, nobody else was even remotely close to the same level of threat to Tony

    I didn’t include Janice because she never really conspired against Tony (with the exception of maybe listening to Richie’s rantings), and the aforementioned characters were at least entertaining. Now, if we’re talking overall worst characters that simply suck ass, Janice is tied for first with AJ “the original failson” Soprano. Honorable mention goes to Meadow’s freshman roommate.
