    S5: Episode 1 - Wilderness

    We're back and we couldn't be more excited! What a great opening! Chris, Paul, Jordan, & Lily discuss the season 5 premiere "Two Tonys" and all the duality within! It's a wild, funny, playful, and dark hour of tv with bears, rejections, and fascinating character moments. Melfi has to reject Tony's advances, several new characters dubbed "The class of '04" are out of prison, a major character goes down, and Christopher & Paulie almost kill each other over the dinner tab. Plus - A BEAR! All this and more, right after we figure out what happened with the Easter baskets....

    S4: Episode 1 - Raccomandazione

    S4: Episode 1 - Raccomandazione

    Season 4 begins with "For All Debts Public and Private", a more reflective and deliberate hour than we're used to for "The Sopranos" premieres, but nonetheless an episode with plenty of interesting stories and developments. More than ever before, this episode and the beginning of this season is centered around money. This comes with a lot of uncertainty and anxiety in a post-9/11 world, as the ideas that give money its value - trust, fidelity, faith, confidence in the future - are in short supply, particularly for these characters. Chris, Paul & Jordan discuss this shift in thematic priority, and also cover Chris Moltisanti's not so glamorous revenge, Carmela's loneliness, Junior's trial, Tony's weight gain, and so much more! What does the future hold? No one knows, but Carmela lays out one certainty: Everything comes to an end.

    S4: Episode 2 - All That Glitters

    The scope of what Season 4 is going for becomes much more apparent after this deep and introspective hour. We break down why "No Show" is a sleeper favorite for our hosts. Meadow's regression has deeper and darker undertones that boil to the surface, Tony is forced to reckon with how his life as "Mr. Mob Boss" has affected his children, and a dangerous game is played between Christopher, Silvio, and Patsy when Chris is made acting Capo of Paulie's crew while Paulie is away. PLUS, things come crashing down around Adriana in truly tragic fashion as the FBI is forced to finally play their hand. It's just scene after scene of glittering reward and brutal consequence this go around and we're pumped to cover it! All this and so much more, right after we projectile vomit on the feds...

    S4: Episode 3 - Imago

    S4: Episode 3 - Imago

    "Christopher" regularly gets touted as one of the worst episodes of the series. Is this a fair assessment? What were the writers going for here? Did it work? Was it worthwhile? In the first part of our show, Chris, Paul, and Jordan discuss the various plot threads including Ralphie and Johnny Sack's relationship disintegrating, Paulie stirring trouble up from prison, and the tragic death of Bobby's wife Karen. In the back half of our show, our three Italian-American hosts have a very candid discussion about image, identity, self-esteem, America, and of course - Christopher Columbus. This being one of the most unique Sopranos episodes in the series, we felt compelled to cover it in a unique way that we hope you all enjoy! If nothing else, "Christopher" prompted a hell of a conversation. All this and more, just as soon as we "subgate" each other...

    S4: Episode 4 - The Berserk Button

    "The Weight" is an extremely well-written episode that builds incredible tension amidst a backdrop of humor, passion, and heartache. Chris, Paul, & Jordan had a blast breaking down the most exciting episode of Season 4 so far! Ralphie's joke about Ginny leads to an explosive showdown between he and Johnny Sack that makes for some amazing television. What does the show have to say about body image, particularly the way women's bodies are talked about vs. the men's? Also - things between Carmela and Furio are heating up into the danger zone like the explosive volcanic Vesuvius! What havoc will "The Weight" of this growing desire reap on the Soprano household? Plus! Our hosts break down what might be the single most bizarre and unsettling scene in the whole series to date! All this, and so much more, right after we  bend more rules than the Catholic church...

    S4: Episode 5 - Betting Terminology

    Themes of loneliness, isolation, illness, and ownership bring a bleak sensibility to the mid-season "set-up" episode "Pie-Oh-My", but it's still a riveting hour of television. Chris, Paul, & Jordan talk all about the new horse in Tony's life and whether or not he's placing the right bets. Meanwhile, Adriana is spiraling into a tailspin as the FBI and Christopher's mob activities close in on her nightclub, and Janice closes in on a still grieving Bobby. Plus: Junior's trial is ongoing, and he is not prepared to suffer further indignity at the hand of the courtroom artist. All this and so much more, just as soon as we rummage Murf's pockets for change...

Deeply thought out and intelligent

This is by far and away the most intelligent and articulate Sopranos podcast out there. The guys have backgrounds in film and storytelling and it really shows. Their insights i to this incredibly rich show are unmatched and often surprising. I look at every episode of the show differently after hearing their take. That said I really wish Jordan Hugh would stop saying his sign-on/off like he’s on 60 minutes. Otherwise, Great job!

Best deep dive

Easily the best intellectual analysis you will get in the show. The hosts do a good job of staying out of each other’s way when the other is making a good point. Very well thought out and paced well, my only gripe is that it’s every two weeks and not weekly. Still very much worth the five stars
