Episode 20 “D-Girl”

Just when we thought Christopher Moltisanti was done with Hollywood, they pull him back in; Christopher & Adriana join Chris’s cousin Gregory Moltisanti and his fiancée Amy Safir for some drinks in the city. Amy works for Jon Favreau (who plays himself in this episode) and they are both interested in reading Christopher’s movie script. A few episodes prior, the writers had us thinking that Christopher was through with big screen distractions, however he now wants to dive back in. The Sopranos writers were always great at delivering diversions like that.

Episode 17 “Commendatori”

FBI Warning! I find a lot of symbolism in the opening scene, as Tony and the gang attempt to watch a bootlegged copy of The Godfather Part II on DVD and the disc is stuck on the FBI Warning title. The symbolism here is not for danger of making illegal copies of Hollywood movies, but for the lives that these made men lead. It could also reference Big Pussy’s current status, as he’s a rat who’s working with the feds.

Episode 11 “Nobody Knows Anything”

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 08 “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti”

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.
