So now that i'm back, anyone want to talk about this show? Seriously?

Someone said I should try and post something surprising(or something like that) and that's kind of what I was hoping to do with this thread.

Kind of wish I could join in. Always wanted to at least watch a few episodes, but can't seem to carve out the time. Couldn't even muster a single film for the nuttage challenge over the holiday weekend. I like being busy, but I really do need to lighten the load and make more time for entertainment; and from what I've always heard, this show sounds like a great place to go for that.

I'm about halfway through season 3 at the moment, last episode I saw was "University", I heard a lot of people cancelled their HBO subscriptions because of that episodes disturbing content(Ralph beating a pregnant stripper to death).

Yeah that's grim.

Ralph may be the most despicable human being I've ever seen on screen. But I can't say too much without giving the game away.

But do you love Joe P... something's performance? Gees Chase had some balls giving us Ralph in 2001.

Good show, and arguably the one that made HBO a power in the current TV industry. I can't really name any favorite moments in particular because I loved almost all of it, but I will say that I didn't enjoy the final season as much, particularly the 2nd half of it, and the series finale ending while understandable was still annoying as hell to me.

I've heard a number of complaints for the last season, and one wonders if the show's reception would've been different had it only gone on for three seasons as David Chase originally planned(I think the main reason he gave the show a fourth season is because he had to change his plans for the third season due to Nancy March and's untimely death)

I recently finished season 3, "Pine Barrens" is one episode nearly everyone raves about, and it was certainly a memorable one, with Chris and Paulie's hilarious bickering and being driven to madness trying to survive in the cold, though I found the Russian managing to survive a shot to the head to be a bit too Michael Myers-esque to really be believable.
