    I loved how he annoyed the **** out of Tony all the time with his ticks, but he was kind of a sympathateic/sad character overall. Few friends/family outside of the crew.

    I saw an interview Steve Schripa did on Joe Rogan's podcast from 2o16. He told the story of how from the 2nd season to the end of the 3rd season Chase had him wear a fat suit. I always thought he lost all that weight.

    The night life for 60 years or so will do that to you.

    I actually didn't mean his looks. He seems to be losing his faculties. Dominic Chianese, on the other hand, seems pretty sharp.

    I watched it recently and I think it's overrated.

    I often wonder how the reception of this show would be if it came out today. Obviously it wouldn't be deemed groundbreaking, but would it still acclaimed? Or just another evil protagonist show?

    Tony Sirico is fairly old and has lived a hard life (he was actually in the mob). But he forgot Dominic Chianese's in show name, definitely seemed a bit out of it.

    Dominic was really sharp, and he's going to be 88 in a month. Also Hesh didn't speak much but he seemed sharp too, and he's going to be 90! in 2 weeks.

    To flip the question...Would there be this many protagonist shows if it weren't for the Sopranos?

    No there wouldn't, that's what made it so groundbreaking.

    Although I do wonder why people don't consider JR Ewing as being the trend setter rather than Tony Soprano.

    For Hughs birthday, Tony gives him a shotgun. Hugh's friend says that Beretta doesn't export their best guns. Do you think he was implying that the gun wasn't that good or that it was illegally obtained

    From what I understood, he was putting his nose up at Tony Soprano, so more likely the former. The (falsely) cultured couple saw Soprano as a philistine with money.

    The local morning radio people I listen to were talking about it since it is on again and they were poo-pooing the psychiatrist scenes, aren't they pretty essential part of establishing Tony's character and rolls into the mob storyline in season 1-2? And in the Me-too/"toxic masculinity" era we live in, haven't they aged even better?

    Maybe the second time they are a little redundant since you already know Tony is awful, but I couldn't have disagreed more with the take.
