I tend to agree with MikeM ... I've tried to get into this season, but its difficult. I liked the first 2 seasons best, but this year is just NOT doing it for me. Perhaps there is some master plan at work here, but for pete's sake they could at least follow through with a few of these sub-plots rather than just dropping them.
This week I couldn't wait for the Sopranos to be over just so Curb Your Enthusiasm would start ;-)
