Something's out of tune


"I've been dreamin' about those Johnny Cakes."
--Vito Spatafore, Jr., The Sopranos
Okay, I'm going out on a limb here and speak out. What's up with the Sopranos this season? We watched the season finale last night waiting for some big development and for some major character to be whacked and nothing. The stupid thing ends with a Soprano family Christmas. This is the way they end a series in June?

All season the Sopranos messed around with Tony getting shot by his uncle and wandering around in a life changing coma (that doesn't help him lose any weight); Vito is exposed as being gay and runs off to Connecticut to mess around with a volunteer fireman and his Johnny Cakes then later gets beat to death and has a pool cue shoved up his corner pocket; Anthony Jr. is exposed as a wimp, becomes a construction worker and then falls for a Puerto Rican single mom who is 10 years older than him; Christopher gets his new girlfriend pregnant and marries her only to fall for a real estate agent drug user that Tony has the hots for; and Paulie gets prostrate cancer after discovering his mom is really his aunt and his aunt is a nun and his real mother.

I am disappointed in you HBO. I'm almost afraid to watch the season opener of Deadwood. Please don't tell me Al Swearinger is going to stop swearing. I couldn't deal with that.

It used to me you could count on HBO to give you cutting edge disgusting crap without having to make a point. Will I be forced to watch prime time spelling bee's and rip off's of American Idol on ordinairy network television? I beg of you HBO, give me the old fashion gang wars the Sopranos used to engage in. Give me something to look forward to.

Or forgetaboutit.
