So you saw "College" already? That's the creator's favorite episode. It could work as a stand-alone, and that rarely happens on The Sopranos.

I've seen the entire series probably two or three times through, but I've never done a complete re-watch in order from start to finish. I guess I should have said that I've seen every episode two or three times.

1. Besides Tony, who do think is the most interesting and complex character? Christopher is my favorite character and I think that he's the most complex and interesting outside of Tony. He wants more out of life, but he can never quite turn his back on Tony and his mob family.


3. What is your favorite episode and why? I'll hide this since DA is watching the series for the first time.
Spoiler (Click to reveal/hide)
There are a few episodes that I consider "my favorites", but I'll mention this one because it has my all time favorite scene in it. Season Six episode 3 "Mayham". The scene at the end when Tony is just about to come out of the coma. He's in the dream world still where he's been mistaken as Kevin Finnerty. He's about to walk into the family reunion at the house (come out of the coma) when he sees his dead cousin Tony. Tony B. tells him that he has to put the suitcase down before he can go in (let go). Tony S. says "I'm scared." Tony B. says, "We're all scared." Then he hears a girl yelling which was actually Meadow at his hospital bed begging him to pull through. Then he walks through the thresh hold and wakes up. I thought that scene was so awesome. It gives me chill bumps everytime I see it.


4. Did you like the way the series ended? Why? I LOVED IT!! I thought it was the perfect ending for the Sopranos.

College was definitely one of the best episodes of the first season. It perfectly displayed Tony's two lives. Ruthless gangster....loving father. Great episode.

I recently watched the season two episode A Knight in White Satin Armour. Favorite line:

Christopher: "It's going to be a while before I eat anything from Satriale's." LOL.

I know the end of The Sopranos.
I never thought it would be a program I'd watch or anything.

However, I don't know any of the events leading up to the end, I just know they are in a diner and what happens from there!

I thought the ending was great. And since you know what happens at the end I will talk about it. It was great to leave The Sopranos open ended like they did. It gave you all three possible endings and let the audience interpret as they wanted. Was that guy in the diner there to kill Tony? Was he FBI? Or did Tony just keep on keeping on? It's up to the audience. If he got killed or locked up in the finale, then that's the end of Tony Soprano forever, right? I loved the ending.

I love the ending. :thumbup:

I caught this episode the other day, and was reminded of how AWESOME this is. Season 6 Part 1 was a little uneven, but this scene, from the episode "The Ride", is one of my favorites.



"We're with the vipers!" :lol: :rofl:

1. I always loved Furio, although he wasn't the most complex character you would encounter, so I'd have to say Christopher is the most complex character after the intricate web that is tony soprano

2,3. I can't exactly say which season or episode is my favourite, i don't think i've even watched the first two seasons completely (may have missed a few episodes) but i can say that i was never annoyed or dissatisfied by an episode, i used to really enjoy watching this show, it' the best i've ever seen after LOST

4. I LOOOVED THE ENDING, it gave me goosebumps, also no music over the end credits enhanced that feeling of goosebumps-iness *lol - sorry* arguably the best ending of a tv show ever

i wish i had time to watch it all again
