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 12 “Isabella”

Episode 12 ushers us right into the middle of Mariolina Capuano’s funeral. We aren’t told much about her, besides the fact that she’s the first woman to give Junior Soprano a handjob.

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 10 “A Hit Is A Hit”

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.

Episode 04 “Meadowlands”

Episode 4 of the Sopranos introduces us to the first of several Tony Soprano dream sequences that would show up throughout almost every season of the show. There are many interpretations for Tony’s dreams, especially the latter ones found in the final seasons.

Episode 02 “46 Long”

E2 Silvio & TonyThe second episode. Interesting things to note…the show starts out with the show instead of the regular Sopranos theme and credits. The “intro” lasts for a couple of minutes, Silvio says the line “just when I was out, they bring me back in” a couple of times and then the theme and credits roll. It was a formula that really didn’t work for this show. I’m not sure how many episodes they started out like that, but I don’t think it lasts very long.
