Iconic director, writer, actor, producer and film critic Peter Bogdanovich passed away soon after midnight on January 6, 2022, at 82 years old. He was a fantastic artist who directed such classic films as "What's Up, Doc?", "They All Laughed", or "Paper Moon", among others. In "The Sopranos", he had a recurring role as Dr. Melfi's own psychiatrist, Dr. Elliot Kupferberg, who was in turn a Mob fanatic. Aside from that, Bogdanovich also directed the season 5 episode, "Sentimental Education", on top of being a frequent assistant to David Chase during the run of the show. He will always be remembered as a legend in the industry.
What's on your mind?
So consider this the first of a number of easter eggs, or hidden messages, or parallelisms, etc. that I notice from the show after rewatching it more than once.
S1E06, "Pax Soprana": Junior and Mikey Palmice are at the tailor's, and Mikey tells him, "You're wearing a suit to the dinner, eh?", to which Junior responds "These guys today, they want to be buried in their jogging outfits!"
This is ironic since later in the season finale, "I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano", Christopher and Paulie chase Mikey through the woods while he is out jogging and finally shoot him to death. He is literally buried in his jogging outfit.
WTF is up with the page for Janice Soprano? Why is the photo used for her so small and why is it formatted so bizarrely? WHY IS IT SOURCE LOCKED SO NO ONE CAN FIX IT?
Anyone catch the new movie yet? Any thoughts to share on is? Without too many spoilers, of course, as we don't want to ruin it for anyone.

Okay, so it's pretty consistent that Uncle Junior is in his 70s. Like, in Season 1, we're told he's 70, in Season 3, the medics say he's 72, yadda yadda. We're also told that Johnny Boy is the younger brother. So if Junior is 70 at the end of Season 1 (1999), that puts his date of birth at 1928 or 1929. However, in S5E07, "In Camelot", when Tony meets Fran Felstein at the cemetery, we see Johnny Boy's and Livia's graves and we see that Johnny was born in 1924, which makes him 4-5 years older than his older brother. What the hell happened there?
It's been on my list of something I've been interested to try out for a while. Some people I know weren't into it, others said it was really good.
Examples of live-action TV series I've found enjoyable are 24, Game of Thrones, and Dexter.
I know it'll be a bit different as it revolves around a mob boss, a villain protagonist, but probably one they'll want you to cheer for over the other gangsters. I think the concept of a show revolving around gangsters sounds interesting.
(Similarly thinking of getting into a certain popular show about gang members, as in biker gang. Sons of Anarchy.)
It's said there are lots of "detestable characters and hateful villains", do all of the worst ones get what's coming to them? (I know at least Richie and Ralph do) I checked both TV Tropes's page, which had no Karma Houdini entry, and on the Karma Houdini page, no mention of The Sopranos.
Beyond that I'd like everything else to be a surprise, I don't even know what the general plot is. Just that the main character, Tony Soprano, is a mob boss.
I've always been curious as to whether the other New York Families would have weighed into the war between the Soprano's New Jersey Crew and Phil Leotardo's Brooklyn Family? Mob wars are bad for business and they would have had an interest in ending the killings.
I'm thinking about this project where I add a post and I ask people to say what they thought of each season of The Sopranos, gathering each opinion and ultimately deciding which one fans seem like the most. Starting with Season 1, I think the general consensus seems to be that it's a great and classic season of television, but I would be really interested to hear what you have to say! Feel free to leave your comment down below!
The Sopranos creator and showrunner David Chase was interviewed by Alan Sepinwall of the 'Rolling Stone' magazine on Friday, where he talked about the legacy of show and his inspiration for writing the upcoming prequel film 'The Many Saints of Newark', set to premiere on October 1. Chase discusses Michael Gandolfini's performance as Tony Soprano and about the cast of the film portraying the show's iconic characters.
Rick Aiello, who had a minor role in The Sopranos as Lupertazzi soldier Raymond "Ray-Ray" D'Abaldo (one of the two gunmen who shot Silvio in the show's penultimate episode), has passed away on July 26, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 65. He was the son of the late Godfather actor Danny Aiello, and appeared alongside his dad in the 1989 film 'Do the Right Thing'. I invite you to present your condolences in the comment section, or wherever, really, to mourn his loss.
Hey all! As you probably know, June is Pride Month, a month where we try to highlight the core message of love is love!
While that should be not something to raise your head over, it sadly isn't as normal yet as it should be, but steps are taken to improve and create a safe place for everyone.
So as the Wiki Representative assigned to this community, I want to highlight the LGBTQ+ resources that Fandom shared with its communities and the guidelines for the platform. You can read the entire post here with links to many helpful resources should your ever find yourself in need of them.
The core message that Fandom is sending is to ask for continued kindness and compassion, that people participating on our platform all follow the following simple "rules" to make Fandom a safe space for everyone (though these rules really transcend "online life" and are just good notes to live by in general if you were to ask me):
Be inclusive and open to others.
Don't use slurs or homophobic, transphobic (including exorsexism), aphobic or biphobic language, even if it's not directed at anyone in particular.
Treat people as individuals; don’t expect a single person or their experiences to represent an entire community.
Respect a person’s identity and use the terms that someone uses for themselves by mirroring their language.
In articles, use the pronouns and gender identity that the character uses for themselves. If the character says "I am a woman", use that in the article - even if another character calls her a man.
Don't use the word "gay" as an insult.
Use the correct pronouns when you know them. And if you don't know, ask! To avoid misgendering someone, use they/them/theirs pronouns until you have the opportunity to ask them.
Don’t assume people’s pronouns. Even if you are correct, this can send a harmful message that you have to look or act a specific way to be seen as a certain gender.
Don't use deadnames, both for other users and the people/characters you write about. For articles, you can make a redirect page for the deadname. That will ensure that people looking for the character can easily find them under either name.
Speak up- if you see something offensive, report it to admins or Special:Contact
Speak to the person before advocating for them. Never out someone’s orientation or gender identity.
If you have any questions about any of this or just want to talk about it, please do feel empowered to reach out to a fellow community member or me personally--here in the comments, on my message wall, or even on Discord (Lostris#4280) if you'd prefer a more private venue--cause I believe it is important that people can get their voice heard, especially when you see something happening that makes you and/or others feel unsafe.
I have been a part of this platform in various community roles for 10 years now if I count it all up, and it truly has been such a welcoming, open, and fun experience for me. So let's continue to be inclusive to everyone and spread the message that love is love!
Am I the only one completely fed up with that whiney little bitch AJ?
I was actually hoping he would drown just so it would stop his incessant pointless whining.
Yea, yea I know, depression...
BUT, even with drugs, nothing changes with him. He is just an exaggerated version of every other totally self absorbed drama queen character that just can't believe it when horrible things happen to them.
And why is everyone shocked that what is dealt out to others happens to them?
The series lasted about a season too long.

If She Calls The Closest Precinct From Columbia University,Instead Of Dialing 911,Then What Would The Police Do For Meadow,If She Reports Caitlin,Her Roommate,For Being So Annoying?
Meadow Would Start Off By Saying That Caitlin,A Bed Potato,Walked Right Back To The University From The Bar,On Foot,Since It's Only A Few Footsteps Away From The University.
Meadow Would Then Say That When Caitlin,Perhaps A Bed Potato,Entered The Room,She Became Annoying Right Away,Especially By Singing In An Annoying Way & While Doing So,She Put On A Peep Show By Removing Her Footwear & Jeans,Leaving Herself Barefoot & In Her Underwear,All Of This Possibly A Result Of Her Being Drunk.
While Still On The Phone With The Police,Meadow Would Then Say That She Would Like Some Of Their Men To Come Over To The University With A Portable Handheld Breathalyzer & Have Caitlin Blow Into It,Just To See How Drunk She Is,Despite The Fact That She Walked To & From The Bar On Foot,Then After She Blows Into The Portable Handheld Breathalyzer,They Can Find Out From Her If She Has A Final Statement That She Would Like To Make,Before They Do What They Will Be Doing Next,Then,If Necessary,After She Gives The Statement,They Can Arrest Her For On Campus Annoyance,On Campus Disturbance,On Campus Misconduct & Disorderly Conduct,All Of Them Misdemeanors & It Would Be After She Gives The Statement,If She Gives A Statement,That They Would Tell Her To Place Her Hands Behind Her Back,Place Her Hands In Handcuffs & Tell Her That She's Under Arrest For On Campus Annoyance,On Campus Disturbance,On Campus Misconduct & Disorderly Conduct.
Meadow Would Also Include That When They Arrest Caitlin,Her Roommate With,Perhaps,A Beer Belly,She Would Like Them To Take Her Away,While She Is Barefoot & In Her Underwear,Because It Would Be Better Than If She Was Wearing Nothing,While Also Saying That Although They Would Be Arresting Her Roommate,They Would Not Be Charging Her,Because They Would Be Giving Her Whatever Would Be The Right Treatment,So That She Does Not Become So Annoying,When She Returns & While Her Roommate Is In Their Custody,She Will Decide When She Is Ready For Them To Do Everything.
After The Call Is Complete,Meadow,While Waiting For The Police To Arrive,Could Makeover Caitlin,By Having Her Remove Her Spaghetti Strapped Top & Then Put On A Brown Scoop Neck Tank Top,Then Paint All Of Her Finger Nails & Toe Nails Red With Quick Dry Nail Polish & Then Adjust Her Hair To Give Her Straight Bangs On Her Forehead.
We Then Move On To Where The Police Have Arrived & Found The Room Occupied By Meadow & Caitlin & At This Moment,Caitlin Is Wearing A Brown Scoop Neck Tank Top & The Red Nail Polish On All Of Her Finger Nails & Toe Nails Has Completely Dried & Now They Present Her With The Portable Handheld Breathalyzer,With Their Instructions Being For Her To Blow Into It,Just So That They See What Her Blood Alcohol Level Is,Even Though They Did Not See Her Driving,So Then Caitlin Blows Into The Portable Handheld Breathalyzer & It Reads .16,So Then After 1 Of Those Officers Says To Her "Do You Have A Final Statement That You Would Like To Give Us,Before We Do What We Will Be Doing Next?",What Would Those Officers Believe Is Wrong With Caitlin & How Would Her Case Be Affected,If,While Smiling,She Then Says To Them In Return "I Am Having Fun,I Am Drunk,I Have A Beer Belly & I Am In My Underwear,So What?" & Then She Laughs After Giving Them The Statement?
Next,An Officer Would Say To Caitlin,While Handcuffing Her At The Same Time "Wait A Minute,So What,I'll Tell You What,Turn Around So That Your Beer Belly Is Facing Away From Me While I Place You In Handcuffs,Because I Am Placing Your Beer Belly Under Arrest,Caitlin Rucker,You're Under Arrest For On Campus Annoyance,On Campus Disturbance,On Campus Misconduct & Disorderly Conduct.".
Meadow Would Also Give The Police A Pair Of Sky Blue Jeans & A Black Pair Of TEVA Sandals,That Have The Hook & Loop Closure & Straps That Go Around The Back Of The Ankle Areas To Help Keep Them From Falling Off,To Bring With Them Just So That Caitlin Has Something To Put On Before She Returns To Columbia University.
Caitlin Would Actually Go Quietly,Despite Being Drunk & She Would Continue To Act Like If She Is Still Having Fun,When They Arrive At The Precinct & Then She Gets Placed In A Holding Cell.
Some Of The Ways That Caitlin Would Act Like If She Is Still Having Fun,While In Police Custody,Would Included Doing The Annoying Thing That She Did Around Meadow,Plus,She Would Also Turn Herself Around To Face Away From The Cell Door,With Her Bare Feet Resting Flat On The Floor & She Would Bend Over To Give Them A Glimpse Of Her Underwear Covered Butt & Laughingly Say To Them "Go Ahead,Tap It.",Saying That It's Her Butt & She Is Giving Them Permission To Tap It 16 Times With An Inflatable Microphone.
Caitlin Would Have Then Wanted 1 Of Those Men In Blue To Massage Her Body Parts Of Choice & Act Romantic & Say Romantic Things About Those Parts Of Her Body,While Doing So,Starting With The Officer Massaging Her Belly & Then Her Thighs,While She Lies Down On Her Back & Then She Turns Over To Lie Down On Her Belly & Then The Officer Massages Her Feet & Then Her Butt,Without Placing Any Part Of His Hands Into Her Underwear,Then 16 The Officer Does This Thing Where He Uses His Fingers To Lift The Bottom Of Her Butt & Then,Instantly,Let Go Of Her Butt,Without Placing His Fingers Into Her Underwear & She Would Laugh,When The Officer Does The Lift & Let Go Thing With Her Butt,Because To Her It Kind Of Tickles.

Hi everyone! As your Wiki Manager, I wanted to make sure I shared important information about an upcoming change happening across Fandom that will affect all its communities, this one included. Fandom is currently working on migrating all its wikis to a new Unified Community Platform (UCP for short). You can read more about this in this blog.
If you still have questions about what that all entails after reading the blog, don't hesitate to ask them here. I'll be happy to supply you with an answer or find one for you in case I don't know myself.
Wiki migrations had been on hold a while in order to give the engineering team more time to fix some issues regarding the editor and admin experience on UCP, but they now starting up again with a few improvements. Once you can see the banner notification on this wiki, it will mean the migration is coming soon to this community.
After the migration, you can also use this post to leave any and all feedback you may have about UCP as well, so I can relay it back to Fandom. Or, if something happens to get broken during the migration, I’ll be here to help you fix it. I hope we can work together to make the transition go smoothly!
