« on: March 25, 2024, 02:20:38 AM »
Realized this topic was missing from SLAP.
Had to do the good deed this morning.

Favorite episodes, quotes and whatevers from the show and shit connected to it.
I dont feel like this need explaining.

Lets get it started but hey, take it easy.

Fun fact for anyone playing GTA 4 right now or whatever...

But they put an actual photo Satriale's Pork Store on front of a store in Alderney (the GTA 4's fictional iteration of New Jersey). I didn't realize playing it, but found this out somewhat recently and thought it was a nice nod, considering there's actually a family based in that island.

Might be known by most and probably not that interesting, but hey ho.

I'll need to have another erm, 3rd watch, definitely. Paulie is by far my favourite character

"He killed sixteen Czechoslovakians. The guy was an interior decorator."

That bit still always gets me, especially how Chris replies with 'His house looked like shit'. Just that whole part where they're stuck out in the forest, eating ketchup packets in a random abandoned van.
i don’t think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me

Oh yeah? How’s he doing?

That scene near the beginning of the series when anthony jr finds out tony isn’t actually in waste management. they’re at jackie aprile’s funeral, that mazzy star song starts playing, and Anthony jr looks at tony like “fuck, my dad’s in the mafia and this is a mafia funeral”

So good. The intro song is sick too.

One of the funniest quotes for me was "Your sister's cunt" when Jr. slips in the shower

Love when Tony deadpans the quote at 2:26 to diss Richie.

“So what brings you to an English speakin neighborhood?”

What didn't you like about it?

Ok let me just condense these down real quick, and by the way, happy for everyone who enjoys this show, good on you.  Just thought I would drop my two centos into the discussion:

1) If you're gonna use stereotypes, how are they aging?  Are they clownish at this point?  I think these are.
2) I'm not opposed to having non-Italian American's play them or vice versa (nod to you John Turturro), but to cast Iler and Sigler as little Italian kids made zero sense to me when there's tons of other actors their age.
3) The pacing was slow and not in a good way.  David Chase is not David Lynch and couldn't pull it off (though I think he was trying to imitate Lynch in season 6 with Tony's identity).  This did not need to be a 6 season show.  Lots of filler.  I'm sure HBO wanted even more seasons but they should have cut it down (And then a prequel comes out?  Did you care about that?)
4)Most of the show was quite predictable.  You really didn't see Ade coming?  Or Christopher?  Or a whole bunch of them?  Very few genuine surprises in the show
5) The finale is just no good.  The "suspense" leading up to it is tedious (more DePalma than Hitch), and the way you can tell that David Chase wrote a bad ending is that he's since come out and just said, "yeah, Tony died in the diner."  So it wasn't like a good "non-ending" like No Country for Old Men, it was that he just didn't write the ending and told everybody later what happened.
6) The relationship with Tony and Melfie is unintentionally hilarious.  I couldn't buy that she would stay through all that.  I get a lot of fans call that "brilliant"
7) Phil was an anticlimactic bad guy.  Again, it just seems like lazy writing. 

Those are seven quickies that come to mind.  I don't mean to ruin your childhood.  Just one man's opinion.

I re-watched it a while back after sixteen years. Love it as much now as I did then. I already had love for New Jersey back then, but boy do you love New Jersey more after Sopranos. One of the absolute greatest shows you can watch.

I love that scene when Tony let Furio handle business by himself.
