Episode 11 “Nobody Knows Anything”

Episode Guide : Season 1

Episode 11 kicks off in a brothel, where Tony, Paulie & Big Pussy are gettin’ their rocks off. I don’t remember seeing these guys hanging out in brothels in any other Sopranos episode. Most of the time they are either on a yacht or in a hotel room when it comes to goomar time.

Episode 10 “A Hit Is A Hit”

Episode Guide : Season

The title of this episode features one of those great play on words that The Soprano’s writers were always throwing at us. When you look at the title, “A Hit Is A Hit”, you automatically think that a lot of people are probably going to get whacked in this episode, but you’re wrong. The title is referring to hit songs in the music industry. While I’m on the subject of The Soprano’s episode titles, I want to state that I really love how the writers named the titles. Most of the episode titles are spoken at least once during an episode, not all of the time, but most of the time.

Visiting Holsten’s (Location of the Final Soprano’s Scene for Made In America)

In November of 2008, I decided to finally take a trip to visit Holsten’s in Bloomfield, NJ – the restaurant where the final scene of The Sopranos was filmed. Over a year had passed since episode 86, ‘Made in America’ had aired, however I felt excited as ever to be in this building. Not only was it the first actual Sopranos location that I was aware of visiting, but it was the exact spot where Tony Soprano was last seen. My girlfriend Jackie, my sister Kate & her husband John came along for the trip.

Episode 09 “Boca”

Episode Guide : Season 1

“Boca” opens up with a scene in a cemetery. AJ Soprano is running around with wild dogs as Livia & Junior Soprano visit Johnny Boy’s grave. The tombstone reads “John Francis Soprano : In memory of a loving husband and father”. I’m surprised Livia didn’t embed the words “he was an angel” somewhere on Johnny Boy’s tombstone.

Episode 08 “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti”

Episode Guide : Season 1

Welcome to the dream world of Christopher Moltisanti. “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti” opens up with Christopher experiencing a nightmare regarding the first man that he whacked, known as Emil Kolar (or as Christopher calls him, “Email Kolar”). The unsanctioned hit took place in the first episode of The Sopranos, at Satriale’s. Satriale’s also appears to be the setting for Christopher’s nightmare. This nightmare sequence was done extremely well, considering it was shot back in 1998. I love the scenery and colors used when Emil Kolar first appears in Christopher’s dream.
