Storyline

Tony is having all kinds of business problems. Carmine Lupertazzi died without naming a successor and it's everything short of open warfare between his son Little Carmine and Johnny Sack over who is going to run the New York family. Johnny strong arms one of Carmine's loan sharks leading her to turn to Tony for help. It's puts him in something of a bind however. Closer to home, Feetch La Manna is stepping on several toes moving in on people's territory, including Paulie's. Uncle Junior has been giving Tony a hard time about almost everything he does. Tony has had it and decides the old man isn't worth his time. Junior may be suffering from dementia however and disappears. It turns out he went back to the old neighborhood to locate Tony's father, Johnny Soprano. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Paulie gets out of his Eldorado to confront the landscapers, you hear a buzz, indicating that he's leaving his keys in the ignition. He slams his door with the buzzer still going. After his confrontation with the landscapers, he apparently uses his key fob remote control to pop the trunk to load the lawn mower. See more »

War
14 May 2008 | by MaxBorg89See all my reviews

At the end of Season Four, it looked like a war would start between Tony Soprano and Johnny Sack over the fact that the former refused to clip New York boss Carmine Lupertazzi. Now, with Carmine out of the picture, Johnny has moved his focus to the latter's son, Little Carmine.

The relationship between the two gets particularly nasty when Johnny has Phil Leotardo tell Little Carmine's loan-shark that all payments must go directly to him. Unfortunately, Tony can't be relied on for help, seeing as he has a bigger problem to deal with: his uncle. Ever since the old guy avoided jail time he's been a real pain in the ass, and his status deteriorates considerably after he's found wandering around a graveyard in his bathrobe, indicating he might actually suffer from the Alzheimer's he faked in court. Speaking of old people, Feech La Manna is a bit of a troublemaker himself, as his plans to reassess his past authority clash with Paulie's ambitions, leading to a compromise neither finds satisfying.

Anyone who has seen David Lynch's Lost Highway will certainly remember Loggia's fiery portrayal of an aged gangster, a blueprint of sorts for his work on this show: he's charismatic, joyously potty-mouthed and very energetic, kind of like the great Lawrence Tierney in Reservoir Dogs. Even so, he has to bow in front of Dominic Chianese, who rules the entire episode with just a handful of scenes, adding layers of sadness to an already compelling performance. The best combination of humor and subtle poignancy comes when Junior watches Curb Your Enthusiasm and mistakes Larry David for himself: "What am I doing on television?" One is tempted to answer: aside from writing a page of TV history, you mean?
