“So remember, get all of your academic and extracurricular ducks in a row. Leave nothing to chance.” The college recruiter speaks this line, just as David Scatino (played by Robert Patrick) steps up and walks out of the classroom in the opening scene, the key words being, “Leave nothing to chance.” Again, we’re slapped in the face with foreshadowing, as Scatino will fall into deep debt not only with Tony Soprano in this episode, but with Richie Aprile as well. David leaves everything up to chance.
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?
“You tell that fat fuck Baccala, you tell to come out from his mouse hole, I wanna see him tomorrow.” Episode 15 marks the first appearance of a key Soprano character, Bobby Baccalieri. Through his own misfortune, Bobby inherits care of Corrado “Junior” Soprano, and thus the Bobby / Junior era of The Sopranos begins.
Right off the bat, the opening of season two of The Sopranos ups the ante. We’re shown a very cinematic montage, giving us the status of the Sopranos characters as the new season begins. The montage is set to Frank Sinatra’s It Was A Very Good Year. Up to that point in time (January 2000) there weren’t too many television shows that felt so much like an actual Hollywood movie going experience. The Sopranos accomplished that within the first 5 minutes of season two. The montage does an excellent job of expressing what’s going on with each character without the use of dialogue.
Now that I’ve finished watching and dissecting the first season of The Sopranos, it’s time to move on to season two! A lot of times people ask me what my favorite season of The Sopranos was and it’s quite a difficult question to answer for me. The way I look at it, The Sopranos got better with each season over time. I think back to the time spent waiting in between each season and at times it felt like eternities!
