Does anyone know the name of the song that is playing while Furio is dancing with Carmela? Season ep 4 I think it is.

Thanks.

Did Mikey get beat up before or after Tony became privy to Junior's failed coup? I can't remember, but if it's the latter case he's lucky he didn't get more.I guess I'm just not clear on what was 'bothering' you or that you're finding contrived. Mikey was manipulating Junior to whack Tony in part b/c Tony laid his hands on him (which he shouldn't have done, and Mikey is within his rights to respond, but Tony got to him first) and partly to help his own ascent in the family. Either way, it seems Mikey was cannon fodder after Tony discovered Junior's treachery anyhow.

Before. And no one cared about or respected Mikey. He was just Junior's little lap dog. Ralph made a lot of money and had a respectable (wiseguy) reputation.

Also, Ralph was in Tony's crew and Mikey was in a different crew.

Thanks, LN. Mikey was definitely a lap-dog when compared to Ralphie who went back to the old days with Tony and Jackie Sr., however, I think Mikey's value lie in the fact that he was a bit more of a modern 'Wall Street' type member when compared to some of the older guys. If fact, Ralphie, Vito, and Mikey were three of the more 'modern' members in terms of the fields with which they made their earnings...Ralphie and Vito for sure, not positive about Mikey but he had the look of a new-age member when compared to some of the others. Chris, too, but he turned out to be worthless.

It's no good trying to compare the portrayal of the Mafia's hierarchy and rules from later seasons to earlier seasons. The show's not very consistent in this respect; drama takes priority over rigorously researched accuracy.

Capo's right. Those early episodes were designed to do little more than hook American pop-culture back into the story of the Italian-American family(s), which it did, as audiences from all demographics flocked to this show in massive record numbers. But they didn't watch because they were all astute observers of mafia rules and tradition, and the show's producers knew that.

Still, it's fun to go back and talk about all of the Mikey Palmices of the show.

Meadow's Nostrils begin to suit the rest of her face as the show progresses. In the first season, her nostrils are fucking huge. She didn't blossom too bad as the show went on.

I just watched the episode where Tony plays golf with Cusimano and his asshole professional buddies. It's one of the few times I felt genuinely sorry for Tony.

He thought he was going to play golf with the gentry, as an equal, but he was really there to satisfy their curiosity. He was like a circus act to them. He gets to play golf with a "better" class of people, and they get to go home and brag that they played golf with a real life crook.

Bunch of jerkoffs.

The Travel Advantages of a Brief Stint on ‘The Sopranos’


ALMOST all my travel is for the Nobelity Project, either shooting a film, promoting and showing a film or working with our partners on projects. I traveled to 20 countries on five continents for our feature documentary “Nobelity” and its sequel, “One Peace at a Time.”

Though the trips were sometimes grueling, it was incredible to meet with Nobel laureates like Muhammad Yunus, Steve Chu, Helene Gayle and Desmond Tutu to get their take on how we can provide basic human rights like food, water and education to every child on this planet.

Currently, I’m traveling quite a bit to Haiti, where we’re starting a school reconstruction effort in partnership with Architecture for Humanity, and Kenya, where we’re building Mahiga Hope High School, a model school for rural Africa.

It seems like I’m constantly in the air or at an airport. Because we’re a nonprofit, I’ve learned to make do with economy seating even though I’m 6 feet 7 inches tall and have to wrap my legs around my body to try to get comfortable. Fortunately, I try to stick with one airline to rack up points, and a lot of times I can snag an upgrade.

When I’m on a film trip, I bring tons of gear. I’ve seen people take a look at my carry-on and then make a beeline to another checkpoint.

I don’t take it personally. My bag is big, filled with two high-definition video cameras, a small digital still camera, batteries, chargers, tape and audio equipment. I can never check it all. If my bag got lost, I couldn’t replace this stuff quickly since I’m almost always in remote locations.

Most of my flights are long haul, and I’ve set some personal records.

I used to fly a lot from Dhaka, Bangladesh, back home to Austin, Tex. With all the layovers, it was 44 hours. I thought that was the longest flight ever. But then I beat that time when we screened “One Peace at a Time” at the Maui Film Festival.

I asked Willie Nelson, who is in the documentary, to sing before the screening. He told me he would sing if I showed up. So I flew from Nairobi to London, then on to Chicago and then Austin, to drop off my camera equipment. Then, I boarded a flight to Los Angeles and then another one to Maui. Total time: 54 hours.

I don’t mind talking to seatmates on flights. I always carry a couple of DVDs with me and hand them out. Sometimes people are really interested in the work, and that’s always rewarding.

Other times people are interested in hearing about what it was like to work on “The Sopranos.” I’m always surprised when people recognize me. I had only a small role in the series, playing Janice Soprano’s crazy boyfriend Aaron Arkaway, a born-again, narcoleptic hippie. People love the show, and no matter what part of the world I’m in “The Sopranos” always has a fan base.

I was in Nairobi recently, and I was wandering around downtown looking for a music store so I could buy some instruments for our school. I wasn’t having any luck. Then a young Kenyan man came up to me and said, “Have you heard the good news?” — one of Aaron’s most memorable lines. Turns out, he was a huge Sopranos fan and he was more than happy to help me out.

It was a fun encounter. And the good news for our school? I was able to get them a keyboard and a guitar.

As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk, the Law runneth forward and back; For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

About the end:

Phil gets whacked in front of his family. Disrespected NY does the same to Tony.

Butch gave the go-ahead re Phil. There's no reason NY would jeopardise relations with NJ by taking out the only practical and proven leader of that family.

He gave the go ahead but not to do it in front of his wife and grandkids.

Yeah, but that's still no reason to then jeopardise relations with NJ by taking out their only practical and proven leader.

Taking out Tony on those grounds and doing it exactly the same way would have just sparked another escalating tit-for-tat war, which both families had just agreed to end.

Don't forget Phil was on the lam, and had until that point been very difficult to find; if they pass up the opportunity to whack him there and then, who knows when he'll next be found. Phil no doubt thinks family are off-limits, which is would account for why he's even with them at his time of death. (Imagine Tony putting Carmela, AJ and Meadow through the same risks...)

Someone refresh my memory - what's left of it.

What was the name of the NJ fictional crime family when the series began and was it ever "offically" referred to as the Sopranos?

It's the DiMeo Family. The actual Boss is serving a life sentence in prison. Jackie Aprile is the acting Street Boss, and so on...

I'm not sure about the second point - maybe later on in the series Phil Leotardo's cronies refer specifically to 'the Sopranos' as a 'glorified crew' (as opposed to an actual Family), but it could just as easily be in reference to the vaguer term 'New Jersey'.

Has anyone been watching Celebrity Ghost Stories? They seem to have a Sopranos star on every episode. Joe Pantoliano was on last nights episode. Here's Michael Imperioli's episode for anyone interested.

'Sopranos' actress Denise Borino-Quinn dies at 46
Oct. 30, 2010, 3:18 PM EST

ROSELAND, N.J. (AP) -- Denise Borino-Quinn, who unexpectedly won a role as a mafia wife on "The Sopranos" as Ginny Sacrimoni after she attended an open casting call, has died. She was 46.

The Farmer Funeral Home in Roseland, N.J., said Borino-Quinn died Wednesday after a long battle with liver cancer. Her husband, Luke Quinn Jr., had died in March.

Originally he was not going to be a regular character on the show. Same thing with Adriana. She was a hostess at the restaurant int he first episode. But they liked her so much they brought her in full time. Same thing went for Vito.

was Janice snorting coke at thanksgiving in the episode "The Telltale Moozadell"?

I'm not sure how her character will develop so I'm guessing this is a hint on something that's about to come but I found it really odd even so.

right after that guy who keeps faling asleep gives a rant about how people shouldn't drink, Janice nods at him but Tony flashes her a signal like she's just snorted a line and has some white leftover on her nose;

couldn't she resist a line over a family dinner? and while I knew it couldn't last much long, I was buying her born again christian mentality lol

It's been so long and there's probably so much I didn't catch before. Sopranos is one of those shows you get away with watching over. DE NIRO, it definitely won't be a marathon viewing. lol

Hopefully Jame Gandolfini agrees to do the movie, even though the episodes are pretty much movies themselves.

I'd like to see a movie for old times sake, but i think they should leave it how it is.

Also i don't know what direction they would take with regards to a story line,And i think one film wont be enough for the film makers they would want at least two..
