Re: Ok, so its not 'fire and money'

Sopranos for me. Tony deals creatively with problems that would stymie a lesser man. I can't wait until 6th season begins. Meanwhile I am catching up on season 5 episodes that I missed.

The only resolution of this series that would work for me is for T to take out the FBI and all the other goody-goody wimps.

And Carmela and her financial planning! Gimme a break. Next thing she will be using FireCalc.

Ha

Another thing about the Sopranos. Dr. Melfi sure has the acres of thigh thing down. If my therapist had dressed like that, I might still be going to marriage counseling. She was cute enough, but just didn't understand a man's need for entertainment.

Ditto on the "Sopranos". No cable here, but I watch it when we travel and buy the boxed set when it comes out. I can see a lot
of Tony in myself (smaller version). Plus, Dr. Melfi is HOT!
Of course, putting her in the same room with a horndog like Tony....................well, it works well on the tube. BTW, I read
an interview with Lorraine Bracco. Pre-Sopranos she took
bankruptcy. Now, she is set financially and is a real estate junkie.
Eschews all stocks in her portfolio. My kind of woman.
I also think Paulie and Silvio are excellent. I still miss
"Big Pussy" though and he was whacked in what............
the first season??

Right on about Dr. Melfi. I tell DW that the director just knows I'm out there; hence the camera is set up just right! I need some of her therapy.

Re: Ok, so its not 'fire and money'

Opposing view: I watched the Sopranos (and Sex in the City...) religiously for the first 2-3 seasons, but after that, I was just hoping someone would whack the whole bunch... Except, of course, for the good doctor. Surely there was some opp for a nude shower scene!! 8)
