All the old threads are old threads.

Started watching it really for the first time (catching up on a lot of older shows). HBO really knows how to do a great show.

Although Tony's mother is one of the most insufferable characters in a tv show I think I've ever seen. Although some folks in Tony's gang are just a little too stereotypical.

And what a great window to the 90's/00's.

This is my all-time favorite show. Yes, even above The Wire.

No. But they referenced it on 30 Rock once. Robert Wuhl at his finest though.

Amazing how bigoted this show was allowed to be, at least for the first two seasons.

they're fictional characters

fictional characters can be bigots

Doubt it would fly today though.

The characters in 13 Reasons Why are all fictional, that doesn't keep the show from getting controversy stirred up.

of course it would fly today

the characters are the bigots. the show isn't promoting bigotry.

it may shock you to find out that there are a lot of racist people out in the world.

That was a great show. I got a lot of fond memories of chilling with my room mates back at NCSU watching that

Interesting timing of this thread, as I'm currently rewatching the series. Almost done with season 4.

What I've really noticed, maybe more than when I watched it a decade+ ago, is how shitty of a person Tony's sister Janice is. And Tony's kids Meadow & AJ are little shits as well, lol.

So after watching several seasons of this show, I have to wonder, how do mafia types communicate these days now that we don't have pay phones?

I think the Season 2 finale "funhouse" is my favorite episode. There are other great ones (Whitecaps, Pine barrens, etc)but this one gets me in the Jimmies.

Watching the episode now where everybody gets capped. The tension in the train store was awful.

I also find it thoroughly awesome that Silvio is Steven Van Zandt from the E Street Band, and his wife IRL played his wife in the show.

Paulie Walnuts was a real life gangster and had a stipulation that he wouldn't be portrayed as a rat at any point during the show.

Sir!!!! You can't be a white male between the ages of 22-40 and not say The Wire is the greatest work of art ever produced!

You're a real piece of shit.

How did you feel about that ending?

It sounds like GoT may have something similar coming.

I was a huge fan of the first few seasons. Went off the rails for me a little bit towards the end. Probably my third favorite TV drama of all time after West Wing and The Wire.

if you look good, you'll notice the guy walking into the bathroom clearly has a gun tucked into the back of his shirt.

Just finished another re-watch.

I've been listening to Kevin Morby's "Baltimore County Line" a lot lately and the line "I'm a soldier, Adriana" gets me every time.
