Storyline

New York mob boss Johnny Sack is upset that that one of his young hoods, Joe Peeps, has been shot. He assumes that Carmine Lupertazzi Jr. ordered the hit but has no idea who the actual shooter was. All he has is that a man with a severe limp was seen leaving the area. He mentions that fact to Tony when they're out golfing and Tony promptly has a panic attack: he knows the shooter was his cousin, Tony Blundetto. Above all, Tony wanted his men to stay out of the New York gang war. Carmela decides the time has come to go to the next step and get a divorce. She's having a hard time finding a lawyer who will take her case however. Meadow and her boyfriend Finn are going through a bit of a hard patch. He doesn't have a job for the summer and is thinking of returning to California. Tony gets him a job on the Esplanade construction site and he gets a look at some of the mobsters up close. He also learns something about Vito that he would rather not know. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Joseph R. Gannascoli (Vito) came up with the idea of Vito being a gay mobster after reading about a member of the Gambino crime family who was gay and was allowed to live for the sake of being a good earner. See more »

Goofs

Instead of forcefully inviting Finn to a baseball game, why didn't Vito use a less confrontational approach in convincing Finn not to disclose he was a closeted homosexual? Vito should know Finn is dating the boss's daughter, hence is considered "untouchable", as Paulie acknowledged in the beginning of this episode. See more »

Quotes

Finn DeTrolio: [Working at the EsplanadeI no-work job site] I should get back, Ramos'll be on my ass.
Vito Spatafore: Would you forget about Ramos, for Christ's sakes? I talked to him. Have a seat. We got the good doughnuts today!

The Sopranos

A classic take on the most beloved genre which clearly suggests the crazy love it received from the audience but also left a long lasting impression on critics and awards shows where it took away five justified Golden Globes to its home. The Sopranos is a character driven series about a family that basically runs the whole town, just illegally.

The writing is adaptive, gripping and ground-breaking on terms of its structure that is so eerily easy as it slips away from the audience like some jelly; it is sweet, nutritious and immensely pleasing. It is rich on technical aspects like its metaphorical cinematography, sharp sound effects and up beating songs along with palpable background score. The series is shot beautifully, each and every color sparks up neatly; especially the visuals that are taken in sunny days are amazing.

The performance by the cast is plausible since the effort is clearly visible but Gandolfini, Bracco, Falco and Imperioli stands alone due to their easiness in their acts. Gandolfini; at the heart of it, oozes power and the aegis nature which is what helps makers keep the audience rooting for the character.

The relationship between Gandolfini and Bracco is the highlight of the series due its fragile tone which is soothing to experience as it lights up the series in a whole new way. Pragmatic conversations, three dimensional character, gut-wrenching politics, brawny dialogues and brilliant execution are the high points of the feature that makes it one of the best series.

Season 05

The fifth act brings back the family drama and a bit mature ethereal morale conflicts that is sort of surprising and brilliant of them to pull it off considering the higher and lethal stakes that it usually fiddles with and it also joins in the previous threats and newer characters.

Unidentified Black Males

There is a detour worth getting into since when it hits the primary lane there is a higher dose of exhilaration and plethora of emotions drawn out from the performance, waiting for you at the end of the tunnel.
