For one thing, it's boring. That scene with Vito driving to the border just goes on and on. But more importantly, the episode insults the intelligence of its characters. As we know him, Tony Soprano is very smart. His earners all have distinct personalities. But here the script unites them in unanimous, facetless hatred. It's not interesting. It's not revealing character development. It's just boring and small-minded. The more I write about this, the lower I want to rank the episode.
But I have to acknowledge that some of this is on me. The extreme ***phobia here ("I'd drag Vito behind my fuckin' car right now!"--strong words for a sedan man) belongs to the characters, not the writers, and so feeling personally offended by it makes about as much sense as feeling personally threatened by the onscreen murders. And yet.... Dr. Melfi seemed pretty unperturbed by the danger of Vito's situation, but at least she got some playfulness in. Me, I was just bored.
