    S6 Part 1: Episode 1 - The Wheel of Fortune

    S6 Part 1: Episode 1 - The Wheel of Fortune

    Chris, Paul, Jordan, & Lily are BACK with more than one "bang" in our coverage of the Season Six opener "Members Only". This off-putting and "icky" hour ends up being one of the strongest and most shocking premieres in show history. Tony has never been better, New York has never been worse, and inheriting 2 million dollars ends up being the worst thing to ever happen to Eugene Pontecorvo. We cover it all from sushi, to Porsche's to empty nest syndrome, to Robert Funaro's stellar stand-out performance, and finally the final jaw-dropping 10 minutes.  All this and so much more, right after we state for the record that the taxi thing was a hit and run...

    S6 Part 1: Episode 2 - The Waiting Room

    S6 Part 1: Episode 2 - The Waiting Room

    Chris, Paul & Jordan dig deep into "Join the Club" as all of our characters are held in various forms of Limbo. Tony has a crisis of identity in Costa Mesa, while the family and Family both struggle with the aftermath of Uncle Junior's actions at the end of "Members Only". There are tremendous performances all around, some entrancing (and bizarre) writing, and a cold but beautiful color palate, but the star of the show here is the performance of Edie Falco. Monumental work from the Soprano queen, mirrored by an understated and bewitching performance by our series lead James Gandolfini, as he presents us with a Tony Soprano who is beyond recognition. Is he beyond saving? All this and so much more, right after we take some Pepto Bismol!

    S6 Part 1: Episode 3 - Lethe

    S6 Part 1: Episode 3 - Lethe

    Chris, Paul, and Jordan wax philosophical this week as we break down "Mayham", a hilarious and deeply rich episode with some of the series' finest moments of writing. The Kevin Finnerty sequence continues, as the world of the North Jersey mob spins out of control without Tony. No one is able to step up to the plate, and Vito and Paulie are playing a dangerous game with the boss' money. Meanwhile, things disintegrate for Carmela on the homefront as her stress and anguish cause her to lash out at AJ. Plus we break down the breathtaking final ten minutes of the episode in detail and Jordan gives a tremendous academic analysis of what it all means! All this and so much more, right after we have a cookie! We're delirious!

    S6 Part 1: Episode 4 - Postage Stamp

    Chris, Paul & Jordan wax philosophical this week as we break down "The Fleshy Part of the Thigh". This episode sees Tony recovering from his trauma amidst the backdrop of a fascinating Eastern vs Western philosophical battle. Has Tony changed? Can Tony change? Is everything connected? Or are we "each and every one of us alone in the ring fighting for our lives?". These are the questions at the heart of this hour. Plus! Paulie has a crisis of identity, and Bobby finds a unique way to earn some extra money. All this and so much more, right after we find out what our EBIDTA is...

    S6 Part 1: Episode 5 - At the Stroke of Midnight

    Chris, Lily, Paul & Jordan suit up for the wedding of John and Ginny's daughter Allegra in this excellent "event" episode about strength, image, and masculinity. While Tony is focused on projecting strength during his recovery, another character's veneer is shattered when he is forcefully outed as gay. All this happens amidst the backdrop of the Sacrimoni wedding, as John asks Tony for a favor, tries to enjoy every moment he can outside of his prison cell, and gets humiliated in front of everyone. Plus - Tony returns to Melfi's office to resume therapy. All this and so much more just as soon as we scoop out that bialy...

    S6 Part 1: Episode 6 - ... And Home Before Dark

    Chris, Paul & Jordan talk through "Live Free Or Die" which was the first episode of Season 6 that didn't particularly "wow" us, even if it did have some amusing and fascinating scenes that helped move the story along. Vito absconds to New Hampshire after being outed, while mob life continues in Jersey with a wide net of subplots from Italian hitmen to spec houses, "Al Qaedas", and therapy. All this and so much more, right after we grease the union...

Fantastic

Truly a good pod. They let each other talk without too much interruption and they have great psychological, philosophical, and artistic analysis. Humor, too. Much better than the other pod with the famous guys which is just impossible to listen to with any pleasure. Well done.

Adeerable ,

Great podcast & they see the dark humor

Some of their commentary makes me laugh out loud. It’s wonderful how they tap into the fact that this show is a dark comedy in many ways and I appreciate their commentary. I love how they bring a fresh take to it and I say this as someone who has watched sopranos at least 15 times.

Top 5 Sopranos Pods

I’ve listened to many Sopranos pods including Talking Sopranos. If you are new to the show and really want to understand why The Sopranos is probably the most brilliantly written series ever, this the Pod you should start with. There are no spoilers so you can watch the episode and then tune in to the pod to dive deeply into the many facets of the show that took me a few re-watches to fully comprehend . I found this pod because I wanted to find like minded fans to dissect a pivotal scene in my favorite episode (Amour Fou). Although the 3 hosts didn’t dissect it as much as I would have loved, their breakdown of the episode had me hooked. This is a must listen if you appreciate writing, directing or all things AV.
