Since HBO is going to run it for a year, might as well provide some random thoughts.
Funny watching the closing credits and seeing Adrianna listed only as hostess. Four years later, we get stuck with shows centered around her and she probably is the person to take down Tony.
AJ really looks like Bobby's son in season 4 at this point.
Now, onto the main reason many of us complained about Season 4 (and why Season 3 wasn't as good as the first two seasons either). The death of Tony's mother screwed Chase. Her pure evil in short doses is the ingredient that has been missing. Just her and Junior at the end of the episode driving and plotting is something that has been sorely lacking. Because of her death, Chase decided to reconcile Junior and Tony, thus ending that dynamic. Can't blame Chase since it was a real death, not a character write-off death, but that presence of unsuspecting evil is missed.

side note: After watching Season 1 of Oz in the days prior to this, weird to see Edie Falco transform from prison guard to Carmella that easily. And watching the deleted scenes from Oz, Janice could have polluted that show as well.

Bringing the French along in a war is like bringing an accordion along when you go hunting. All it provides is useless noise.

I forgot just how gloden early Sopranos was.

Man, that scene with Uncle June and Livia driving around was pure comedy genius.

They had every nuance of "old people" down pat. I was busting a gut with Junior sitting so close to the steering wheel.

Even knowing that the pilot was shot a year before Season One, I was shocked when I tuned in towards the end and saw how different Tony looked. Seriously, you'd think he aged six or seven years in the last scene in Melfi's office. I hadn't popped my DVD in since early 2001, and it came as quite a jolt.

It'll be a dark day if they kill off Uncle Junior.

I hope they don't.

I went on a little Soprano's binge about a week ago and rented the entire first and second season. Tony does look at least 8 years younger in the first episode of season one. I was thinking that the entire episode, except when Tony was talking to those ducks in his pool and was like "Hey, listen.. if you don't like that ramp I'll build you another one." ::shrugs:: it cracked me up.

Von, Dutch does kick ass. Even in this episode, when he couldn't get the guy........he found a way to get the guy. I loved it when Claudette was telling the perp "No can't POSSIBLY be this bad.
