I Love You Too, Johnny Cakes

I can’t be the only one about ready to cancel my HBO subscription over dedicating half of the final season of The Sopranos to such an idiotic and irrelevant subplot.

  1. Their little personal indiscretions no longer intrigue me they once did.

    Two seasons ago, I would sigh when the credits would appear at the end. Now, I sigh and murmur something to the effect of “thank God” or “what a gyp”, etc.

    They are totally just phoning it in.

    Course, I can’t cancel that subscription just yet! Deadwood is coming up in June.

    Shoot, HBO ain’t stupid. They know how to keep you paying that ridiculous $12/per month, don’t they?

  2. Thank you for pointing this out. The only justice in us having to sit through that is that the fat guy is going to get whacked when the rest of the boys find out he’s back in town.

    I believe this is a passive-aggressive move by David Chase to slap Sopranos devotees in the face one last time before the series ends. Two slaps and a shoe in the nuts.

  3. Yeah I lost interest a couple of seasons ago. Since this is going to be the last season I thought that I’d watch. Well I’m quickly losing interest again because of this stupid sub-plot.

  4. You’e gotta admit, that Johnnie Cakes in a Fireman’s uniform is rather dreamy. That tall, muscular, frame, those corn flower blue eyes, those high cheek bones, and that chiseled jaw… Just the thought of him riding off on that motorcycle is making me shaky as I type this.

  5. I only watch a couple of shows on TV…they are as follow:

    1. Sopranos-HBO
    2. The Shield-F/X
    3. Nip/Tuck-F/X
    4. Adult Swim

    The Sopranos has turned into a touch-feely-molest-your-male-psyche fag-drama.

    The Shield stepped over the line by killing off Curtis Lemanski…there’s no where to go but downhill now.

    Nip/Tuck hasn’t yet matched the bravado of season one, but they also haven’t lost traction. They stay fairly true to the original formula and only churn out a few disappointing episodes.

    Adult swim? God bless that obnoxious milkshake, his filthy meatball friend, the uppity order of fries, the sweaty scumbag neighbor, the moral kid, the fucked up mutants, the flying attorney, the whole crew of SeaLab, the pissed-off praying mantis and all of the other cuddly cartoon creatures who have always made “The Swim” so much fun. They have never let me down.

  6. I just read my own post and something occurred to me:

    I pay $90/month to amuse myself for 4-5 hours per week. Hmmf. Makes a strong case for telling Dish Network to kiss off and picking up the ol’ blow habit again.

  7. I can’t agree more. Janice and Bobby married with a baby, Chris with a new girl he marries… no explanation. We don’t have time to explain trivial details when we have this wonderful irrelevant sub-plot to waste time with. I would estimate that anywhere from 45-60% of each episode this season was pure waste. I almost couldn’t finish it last night. Jack Bauer, et. al. at CTU will rescue me from the TV malaise tonight!

  8. Well after last night hopefully that plot line is coming to an end. Does anyone besides me see Christopher getting indicted for terrorism? I think it is coming.

  9. Trust me on this: Vito came back to Jersey because he is, and always has been, in love with Tony. If that’s not going to make for interesting subplot for an episode or two, I don’t know what is.
