    The Offer S01E01 Pilot Discussion – Cut To Black

    Paramount+ has released a new television series chronicling the making of one of the greatest movies in cinema history, THE GODFATHER. Jim and Jakob have discussed all of the Sopranos and recently the Godfather films so we get together to discuss the first episode of the show “The Offer”. How does it stack up against current TV shows? How does it reckon with the looming shadow of The Godfather and most importantly how does it fit in the context of one of the greatest television shows of all time, The Sopranos?

I had my doubts in the beginning...

This is a really amazing podcast. The two hosts give really great insights and have great rapport. They are able to pick out nuances that I initially missed. I only have two real knocks. The first one is that they tend to mispronounce some words that I consider pretty common. Unfortunately, I’ve found that in a lot of newer podcasts. The second knock has to do with the noises, like phone rings and alerts. That should be better managed.

Hilarious!

This show is really funny. I can’t tell for sure but I think/hope Jakob finally realized it’s just Johnny Sack, not Sacks. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure Jim still thinks Tony’s mom’s name is Olivia. It’s just Livia, dude. Drove me crazy.

But I love the show.

Great analysis of Sopranos!

When The Many Saints of Newark came out, I decided to do a sopranos rewatch. I tried a few companion podcasts, but quickly gravitated to Jim and Jakob. They recap the episode (which is great as I sometimes miss things), but also provide thoughtful analysis and opinions. As a bonus, they seem like good friends and it’s fun to hear them chat! I’m hoping to learn how Jim met a guy from Sweden (who speaks with no accent!), and why Jakob moved to Ireland.
