Random thoughts on this weeks episode. 1) Thought that we were going to really have a blood and guts show after the opening beatdown, sadly, that was the only violent action in the show. 2) Way, way to coincidental that Tony's shrinks shrinks daughter is now connected to Meadow. That's getting a little to cute. 3) The parking lot scene that they had in the previews made it appear a major league beatdown would come on Tony, only it was someone waiting for a parking spot. Weak. 4) No Paulie is not a good thing. Only having him make token appearances was bad enough, now, no appearance at all. Funny how the quality seems weaker this year without Paulie interacting with the crew. 5) Anyone else waiting for the passionate screams for Furio during the last scene? Now, that would have made things very interesting.
Overall, I give the show a B for the week. After poor shows (by Soprano standards) the previous two weeks, I was expecting a blockbuster show this week.
I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.
I have to say I was kinda disappointed by this week's episode. The whole "call off the hit five minutes to the end of the show." was sloppy conflict resolution on the order of your average "Star Trek: Voyager" episode.
That plus too much Meadow this episode leaves me right cold. The geriatric hitmen were hilarious tho. *L*

Jeez, I was bored out of my mind. I agree with whole psychiatrists intertwining is a little too much to fathom. But, at least we didnt have to look at Christophers girlfriends hatchet face too much this week.
And, what is going on with Junior's Trial? Tony keeps talking about how he is on "trial for his life" yet we havent really seen anything from the courtroom.
I'm just relieved they didn't kill Ralphie yet. You know he's living on borrowed time - and I'd bet anything he doesn't make it to season 5, but I love that crazy bastard.
And Junior's hitmen made the whole damn show. I wanted to see them go through with the hit.
Next week, it looks like they're finally remembering about the Adrianna storyline! That's the only thing I hate about this show (besides the fact that an inpenitrable amount of time passes between seasons) - too many plot points drop off for episodes at a time for no good reason. I still want to know what happened to that Russian guy in the forest.

You can watch it again on Thursday night, if they're still rerunning Adult Swim then (they didn't last week ARGH). Anyway, it was pretty dull, but it showed some promise. I'd have rather watched Baby Blues, though. Oh well. -Jaguar
