  • This was indeed adventurous

    9.6
    This episode had all of the essentials in terms of acting, character development, supporting actor strength and storyline. This was an adventurous episode and example of a power struggle that must be dealt with immediately now that Tony is back. We now see the inner workings of Vito, Paulie, and Silvio fight for the top or at least for the second position of boss. The dream sequences were just enough to not be considered bore as last weeks which ran for about 30 minutes in total. The end of the dream sequence was especially great with the voice of Paulie raising Tony's blood pressure and coming through in Tonys coma dream as the noisy neighbor. Besides the countless number of symbolic things to name in the episode, the best symbolic part was the return of Tony B encouraging him to step into the lives of his family and to leave his business behind while hearing the faint echos of his voice crying for him to come back. I can go into details of future predictions but that would just kill the surprise of future episodes. Bravo SOPRANOSmoreless
  • It's The Sopranos.

    The best part of this episode was the last 10 minutes, namely the appearance of one of my favourite character and basically the whole sequence with him and Tony, not to mention the heart stopping white wash that flooded the screen. So far this season I have experienced more compassion than I ever have for Tony and the family. To say I have "compassion" for a television character really says just how well this episode was put together. I love picking out, interpreting and seeing the symbolism in the coma dream, and I am eager to see how much or if any of what we saw in the dream is foreshadowing events of the future. I just hope Tony's image from past seasons is somewhat preserved given his current state...or at least I hope he is portrayed as one with dignity like he once had.moreless
  • Finally, they had to do it eventually. He doesn't look to good though. I thought the final part of the dream sequence was good. I liked how they were calling him to heaven, but he could hear his kids in the background. Awesome.moreless

    Finally, they had to do it eventually. He doesn't look to good though. I thought the final part of the dream sequence was good. I liked how they were calling him to heaven, but he could hear his kids in the background. Awesome. I thought the dreams were really boring, so I'm glad they ended.
  • The Sopranos are back!

    Finally, the third episode of the sixth series gets us back on track. From the moment Vito handed Paulie a 'job' I knew we were going to get back into the nitty gritty, and we did. I think this episode had it all, I loved the way everything was falling apart without Tony, firstly the arguments over petty business, secondly with Tony's family and Carmella losing it and finally with Chris and the 'film fans' picthing an absolutely rediculess idea (the film).



    I'm glad Tony is out of the coma, the story was losing momentum, athough I did like the 'heaven' scene at the end of Tony's coma, and his children calling him back to Earth.



    There's plenty here to be going on with and frankly, I'm looking forward to it.moreless

    What a great ending to the coma sequence! When Tony goes to the reunion house and his dead cousin turns around I just knew he was about to go into the light & I dont think it was heaven. The kids voices saved him. Well scripted thanks writers. The battle for Tonys job was also good, sometimes funny to....Gotta love Paulie. Im not to sure what will happen with the movie thing but it could also bring a good story line. I did like to see Mrs. S take a stand & start getting tougher. I think we will start to see her take a bigger role in the "Family".moreless
