I'm almost half way through season 4 at the moment and have been truly impressed with how consistent this show has been. I can't say I've watched
an episode yet that I haven't enjoyed and I like the pace the show runs. They don't try to do too much at once. Although coming on the tail end of
each season, a few things are usually predictable and that is a few supporting characters of that season are likely going to be killed off.
There has been only a handful of movies over the years that were able to tell this sort of story and do so genuinely. And of those handful of movies,
there are next to no television shows that could. So it's not a stretch to say that the Sopranos is easily in a class of its own.
I have been surprised by one thing though and that is each of the season finales for one, two and three were fairly anti-climactic. Each season is a
story unto itself and could almost be told separately. Maybe it changes moving forward (please no spoilers!) but I have been surprised each time so
I love the Pauly character. The episode in season 3 where he and Chris are out in the woods chasing a Russian, then they get lost and are stranded
for a night. My favorite so far. Pauly's character is as real as they come and I find him hysterical, even though he's not trying to be funny.
