  • A boring, dull episode.

    5.0
    This episode has a great theme behind it, Tony, Paulie and Christopher traveling to Italy. However, the episode is terribly executed, and is basically 50+ minutes of boredom. Carmela is considering the state of her own marriage after Angie announces she wants to divorce **** another great but poorly excecuted storyline. The entire episode just feels wrong, out of place, and overall ads nothing to the series. Except Furio.
  • Great story and sets in Italy.

    It was nice to see a change of scenery from the streets of New Jersey to the luxurious areas of Italy. While it was a short stay, it was a nice change of pace to see how the "old family" is run. I was very surprised with one of the decisions Tony made with dealing with the old family. Not mixing business with pleasure. Mind you he put it in much different more creative language that you definitely will not hear on network television. The additions of Furio to the crew were a good choice. I love his accent and his mannerism with his Italian accent and pronunciation; they reminded me of friends from Italy that visited me. In all it was a good episode. Surprising was watching Sofia Milos play a mob boss very well.moreless

    Loved everything that was going on in Italy, but the scenes with Carmella and BP's wife feel really short in this episode. The scenes in Italy tended to drag on a little longer then they needed to, but the writers were trying to show us how big of an influence Tony Soprano is becomeing overseas as far as his business in New Jersey goes. We're starting to see less of Tony's mom and a little more of the mob side of things which is really working out for the show. This episode seems like it set up a big partnership which may play a large role in the next couple of episodes. Love the scenes with BP and the FBI agent getting spotted at a toy store, only to have BP turn it right back around and kill the man that saw him. I didn't see any point to his wife leaving him, which is what really brought this episode down for me. Everything else though was anything anyone who watches the Sopranos could ask for - solid, entertaining drama.moreless
  • This one is worth it just to watch Sofia Milos!!!

    9.2
    This is what "The Sopranos" is all about. Rich characters. Real life. This episode is divided into two sub-plots. Tony, Christopher and Paulie travel to Italy to discuss a "car deal" while back in the USA Carmela tries to convince Angie Bonpensiero, Pussy's wife not to ask for a divorce. I loved this situation in which Carmela is trying to make herself believe that her marriage is worth it. She projects her own problems on Angie. While she talks to her she's actually trying to fool herself. The way in which marriage is represented is truly magnificent. And for me scary. When Angie says that when she heard Pussy's voice she wanted to vomit it’s a brutal and merciless moment that really hits us hard.

    The other plot sees Tony in Italy. Here we get a really bad image of Italians which I found a bit unfair. Then we see a little bit of the old school Naples Mafia. And finally we get Sofia Milos pre-CSI Miami. She was absolutely beautiful. She oozed sex. What a sight! The ambience is perfect. I felt I was in Italy. The streets, the people everything was perfect.

    Finally we get to see Pussy starting to get deeper and deeper in trouble all leading up to the climax which by now we all know.

    A fantastic episode.
