Gavin and Hannibal are best friends since Kindergarten who really love The Sopranos. Join them as they recap all 86 classic episodes in order, on a weekly podcast which salutes and celebrates the greatest TV drama of all time.
Bonus - Our Favorite Lines
Gavin and Hannibal share their all time favorite lines of Sopranos dialogue, in a special bonus episode of ‘The Sopranos Show!’ Going season by season, your hosts break down the reasons for their picks, and relive some of the series’ greatest moments.
S6B:E21 - Made In America
The series finale of The Sopranos keeps things pretty simple... until it doesn’t. Gavin and Hannibal (and Maureen Van Zandt) explain what they think did or did not happen in the diner and why. Though ‘Made in America’ is the final episode of The Sopranos, this is probably not the final episode of ‘The Sopranos Show.’ There’s a movie coming in September 2020 after all! Until then, Don’t Stop-
S6B:E20 - The Blue Comet
Gavin and Hannibal agree that ‘The Blue Comet’ truly is the ‘ultimate penultimate’ Sopranos story. Your hosts discuss the deeply troubling yet decisive showdown between Tony and Melfi, Baccala’s operatic and unforgettable final scene, and the many ways in which the episode perfectly positions all characters to play (or not play), a unique and impactful role in the series finale.
S6B:E19 - The Second Coming
With just a couple episodes until the end of the series, things are getting emotionally apocalyptic on The Sopranos. Gavin and Hannibal talk Livia callbacks, gut wrenching suicide attempts, and the guilty pleasures of watching a well earned curb stomping. ‘The Second Coming’ dramatically ups the stakes for the final season, with Gandolfini and Iler in particular, delivering deeply moving performances.
S6B:E18 - Kennedy and Heidi
With ‘Kennedy and Heidi,’ the makers of The Sopranos pull off one of the most shocking and memorable major character death scenes ever devised for television. Gavin and Hannibal explain what makes the scene in question quintessential ‘David Chase,’ and how the episode as a whole offers rich insight into the Tony and Christopher dynamic (especially as it relates to Adriana), as well as the fully justifiable reasons for AJ’s descent into true despair.
S6B:E17 - Walk Like A Man
Writer Terence Winter directs his first and only episode of ‘The Sopranos,’ further proving why he’s one of the series’ greatest storytellers. Gavin and Hannibal consider ‘Walk Like a Man’ to be yet another masterful final season episode. The highly emotional Melfi session, the arcs of Chris and A.J, and J.T. Dolan’s climactic scene, are just a few of the memorable and surprising highlights.
Great to revisit it all through this podcast. I had seen all the episodes but have started to see more details now thanks to The Soprano Show.
