Anyone else catch episode 67 of the Sopranos? Episode was 66 was pretty interesting good recap of last season with a nice song intro and voice over. Thought the introduction and then killing of Eugene Pontecorvo within the same episode was pretty weak story telling but that is just me. Seems like there was some foreshadowing that Adrianna is buried in the spec house and that Tony is not going to fair well (confirmed in 67).

Thought the conclusion of Junior capping Tony and the development of Junior losing his mind was good. But at the beginning of episode 67 we get Tony in some type of purgatory and a glimpse of what it would be like for him had he been just an everyday Joe. I thought it was a bit drawn out. Anyways unless they progress through some serious time lapse between episodes I am going to find it hard that Tony is all of a sudden out of this in a couple episodes. I know its an extended season but this is shaping up to have Tony on his death bed while Carmella rehashes the good old days.

Sure there will probably be plenty of violence with the ensuing loss of Tony at the head and what I would assume Silvio taking the reins. Probably some infighting between Paulie and Krissy (probably nothing major though) and Vito is certainly up to no good. I am looking for him to be "whacked" sooner rather than later. Also looks like there was some significant foreshadowing of AJ placing a bullet in Junior. Who knows though. I had no idea we were going to get a psychedelic Tony dreamland for this episode so 68 might go in a totally different direction.

Hell I thought 67 was a bit uninspired but it still wont keep me from tuning into 68 so I guess they have me hooked regardless.

I hated this week's episode. I got a lot of grief from all my friends who are "die hard" Soprano fans telling me I don't know shit because nobody beats the Sopranos when it comes to dream sequences.

Well, that may be true, but it was still boring.

I thought the new season is progressing nicely.

The voiceover at the beginning of Ep. 66 is a weird [but oddly appropriate] William S. Burroughs quote, with him reading, from his book "The Western Lands". Most of the excerpt [known as "Seven Souls"] is drug-addled and meandering, but there are plenty of things within that could shed a little light on the direction the show might be taking.

Check it out and let me know what you think:
