My Insane Sopranos Marathon Comes To An End

These past couple of weeks, I put my life on hold so I could watch every season of The Sopranos in order, and today I finally got up to date. That's 71 episodes. What a good idea that was. Especially considering I warmed up with several complete seasons of other HBO series, including Six Feet Under, Rome, and Deadwood.

Obviously, my eyes are bleeding as I type this. But it was worth it. My only regret is that I occasionally had to go to work, and do the laundry, and stupid shit like that. But now I'm done.

For the next three days or so, you'll feel something missing. You'll dream about the characters you've come to love and loathe over the last 71 episodes. The feeling and dreams will pass. They always do.

Not that I've ever done anything like that before. Because I haven't. What? I don't have a problem.

My god, Koala, is that you? I knew too much Sopranos watching wouldn't be good for you, as you have now resembled the likeness of a mafioso. Or is that an improvement?

I've only seen the last two seasons of the Sopranos but I thought about doing a marathon too. Any tips?

I think you should just delve in and go with the flow. And when you're hooked, just remember: there's always other stuff to watch so the insanity never really has to end.

Sara, last night I dreamt that someone broke into my apartment and that a cat was trying to claw my eyes out. But I still liked the cat.

sex in the city is soooooooooooo much better than the sopranos!

who agrees with me?

Afe said...

Pfft. Sex in the City is just for horny sluts. Desperate Housewives is what I'm talkin' about.

Sara said...

Desperate Housewives is Sex in the City on basic cable.
I'm with Goo on this one. I've never seen an episode of The Sopranos so my vote doesn't really count. At all.

1) It's Sex AND the City, you stupid Americans.*
2) That the target audience is horny sluts doesn't mean it can't be quality television.
3) SATC is okay. Nowhere near in the same class as The Sopranos, though.
4) Sara is right in her assessment of DH.

Now you all know how it really is, and I advise you to adjust your perceptions accordingly.

*Yes, I include Afe in that. Australia is America with kangaroos.

Moocko said...

The Sopranos is for people and SATC is for girls.

Sara said...

At least I was right about one thing.
