  • Honest businessman from Jersey buys $1,000,000 wedding. What could go wrong? (Spoilers)

    8.8
    Some of the best moments in this series have been when Ed interacts with members of the mob, a throwback to Las Vegas in earlier times; and of course reminiscent of James Caan's movie appearances. Caan's exchange with the "New Jersey businessman" played by Vincent Pastore was classic. I loved how he offered to save Ed 3% on his sanitation costs; then sweetened the deal with a box of Cubans. "Aren't these illegal?" was followed by knowing glances that there's a lot going on in the way of illegal activities. And then having the jewel thief be the upstanding father of the groom when the hotel was full of mob characters was truly ironic. The future M.I.T. student who bonded with Mike, (even though he must have considered Mike an underachiever for an M.I.T. grad) lead into an amusing plotline. I would have preferred seeing some thought process in his arriving at the idea for his business venture, rather than just having Mike discover the pile of cash and bust him. ("OK, now it's $*** for an hour, and $**** for the night. Hmmm, any limit on what you do all night?") His decision to attend M.I.T. was ultimately not academically-based. I didn't get the contrived feud between Ed and Wayne Newton. I can recall at least two previous appearances on this series by Newton. Now there's a long-running feud to be resolved? It was funny seeing Ed swallow his pride and display a super-sized public apology, though. The sweetest moments in this show involved usually-cynical Sam and her 80-year-old "whale" from the "Rat-pack" days. Even though she couldn't give him Sinatra, she found the next-best thing in a good Sinatra impersonator. And Sam showed an appreciation for Vegas history, especially when hearing about the show Elvis did in Sharkey's suite. We get to see another side of Sam besides her usual persona as an egotistical, money-grubbing beauty.moreless
  • The mob come to the Montecito.... Spoilers below.

    8.0
    This episode consisted of Danny and Delinda’s relationship getting a little strained at the edges after last weeks kidnapping attempt, well nit-picking to be exact. Sam caring for an 80 year old whale who wanted to watch reruns of ‘Murder she wrote’ than gamble, Mike catching a soon to be M.I.T student pimping and the mob paying a million dollars for a wedding in which two million worth of diamonds were stolen.



    The comedy in this episode was good, and I loved James ( Ed ) & Vincents ( Jimmy’s ) inter-change whenever they met, loved Sam’s comment to Delinda about Danny when Delinda was putting her list together of Danny’s faults and Sam said have you ever noticed when he walks past a mirror he has to look in it, she turns around and Delinda’s admiring herself in the mirror. What I thought was weird was Ed’s and Wayne Newtons fall-out, is W.N that desperate for publicity that the writers had to pen some stupid story that Ed and Wayne had fallen out years and years ago over some golf shot when it was only last season that Wayne was at the Montecito singing. All in all a good episode but not great, this episode lacked a little something and I’m not sure what, maybe I was expecting too much from it because of the build up, I don’t read spoilers because naturally they spoil the episode but I do like to read episode reviews and when I read this would involve a Mob wedding and stolen diamonds and starring Vincent Pastore I got a little excited ( I love The Sopranos ).



    Hope next week’s is better 8 out of 10moreless
  • Sopranos\' wedding, High school pimp, nagging couple.

    8.0
    After last week, this episode does seem a little dull, but I expected that. I called the Dad stealing those diamonds. The high school pimp was funny. I also thought the whole \"Danny can\'t dance\" thing was comical. Like when Danny confronted Ed about dancing and Ed just stared at him. The whole Wayne Newton thing was a little strange. Wasn\'t he in an episode last season singing to Monica\'s friend who found a finger in her food? I also recall him in a very early episode singing with that asisn guest who then became the Montecito\'s Wayne Newton look-a-like. No?moreless
  • Million Dollar Mob Marriage without Wayne Newton? Fuggediboutit!

    7.9
    This episode was lackluster after the last harrowing two with Delinda's kidnapping. Danny and Delinda are nit-picking and isn't it a little soon to be doing that? She moved in 3 weeks ago then got kidnapped, how much can they be getting on each others nerves? They haven't even been near one another long enough. I guess the post-traumatic stress is getting to Delinda..so she will see a shrink.

    The mob wedding is just half-way done, whiney mafia princess daughter included marrying a upper class milktoast boy. It wasn't funny and it wasn't interesting. Then we have the MIT nerd doing a <i>Risky Business</i> on the Monticeto and Mike. The funniest part was Ed having to apologize to Wayne Newton to get him to sing at the million dollar movie package. Not the best episode...more filler than meat.JMHOmoreless
