Episode 18 “Big Girls Don’t Cry”

Less than one episode after spending 95% of his time comatose on heroin in Itlay, Christopher Moltisanti barges into a brothel and declares that the owner is a ‘drug addict’. The writing on this show never lets me down. Christopher came to collect money due to Tony Soprano and he leaves with nothing. Maybe it’s the drugs that are making him too soft?

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 16 “Toodle-Fucking-Oo”

Dr. Jennifer Melfi returns back to Sopranoland this episode, after being absent in the previous. Her return makes for an interesting dream sequence, an amusing encounter with Tony Soprano’s crew, as well as a closer look at her own mental issues. Before we get to all of that, I’m going to talk about one of the main characters of season 2, who makes his first appearance in this episode.

Episode 13 “I Dream Of Jeannie Cusamano”

Throughout the years, whenever I would notice David Chase in the writing credits for a Sopranos episode, I knew that I was in for a great episode, and this one is no exception. This episode marks the first time that John Patterson would direct a Sopranos season finale. He would continue to direct each season finale of The Sopranos up until the 5th season (Episode 65 – “All Due Respect”).

Episode 01 “The Sopranos”

It’s kind of weird to go back and watch the first episode of your favorite television show. Especially when 10 years have passed since it first aired. In the first episode of The Sopranos we’re introduced to a slew of the original characters that we’ve all come to know and love. It’s exciting to be reunited with these characters. For the most part we know which ones have been whacked and which ones survived. Then again, there are a few who’s fate we’ll probably never know.
