Wow, so I am the poster child for why tv sucks so bad?
As Ralphie said "IT WAS A JOKE!".
I do agree that this show is about characters.
But it is also about mob life.
Has there ever been another show that has killed as many of its characters during its run?
Pussy, Richie, Jackie, Jackie Jr., Ralphie, Vito, Christopher, Adrianna, Tony B?
Plus several other captains that I do not recall their names right now.
Don't kid yourself, this is a mafia show, and it has survived because it is a mafia show.
The character studies of these guys is what has elevated it to a great mafia show instead of just a good one.
Besides all that, didn't Tony fantasize about having sex and killing Melfi throughout the series?
And didn't many think that Tony was going to kill the guy who raped her? I did. But they didn't go that route, because it would have been too easy.
This show has never gone the easy route. It always keeps you guessing.
So that is what some of us are doing, guessing at how it plays out. Some guesses are serious, some are not. But they are all in fun.
Lighten up and make a guess of your own.
TV is supposed to be entertainment, why don't we treat it as such!
