re: Breaking Bad vs. The Sopranos


The Sopranos was a decent show but that is as far as I will go. BB is a classic and possibly the best written show on the history of television.

I'll admit to being a little "meh" about the ending at first. But all I had to do was sit back and really think about it and it was pretty much perfect. What would you offer as to the ending being better?

Great, no doubt. Not sure if it's the best, plenty of plot holes and lots of suspension of disbelief. But it has been an awesome ride and these last 3 episodes are making me a bit sad it is ending.

The show was solid minus the psychologist. I think that they should have cut that woman out of the series all together as she served no purpose. I watched the show for the mob element and not the "human" element. Tony should have been whacked in a bloody St. Valentine's day massacre type ending.

I disagree completely. To me the psychiatrist angle was a brilliant twist that perhaps more than anything else separated it from other shows of its genre. Linked the "mob" storyline to the "human/family" storyline, which essentially was the whole point of the show IMO.

It could have been linked without the boring scenes in her office. This is, in my opinion, why Melfi was rarely on the show in later seasons. It was simply boring beyond belief.

I am dead serious. Why do you think her role was so diminished in later years and Tony's "passing out" episodes ended? It was because the audience didn't want it.

Why would you resort to name calling because my opinion of what made a show good is different from yours? I would say that your post above is some of the most solid evidence of foolishness I have seen in some time.

No, no, no. I knew 6375 posts ago. This is just more evidence. Melfie served no purpose?

You weren't here 6375 posts ago. I would say your are lending more credence to my statment above by continuing to pursue foolishness.

It's been a few years since I've watched it but I seem to remember Melfi pulling away from Tony in the latter part of the series. Particularly after the dinner party with her colleagues and the discussion about sociopaths justifying their actions from therapy. Even if I'm mistaken here, to say she played no important role in the series is asinine. You lose all credibility with that statement.

Very well. Are you an alter? Either way only children or imbeciles feel that personal insults provide credibility to the statements they make. I feel that Tony's psychological issues could have been both illustrated and built upon without the inclusion of the psychologist. I feel it was a bitter pill to be choked down that could have been fed to the audience in a different manner. This is, again, why her role was greatly diminished toward the end of the series.

Notice I did not advocate doing away with all of Tony's psychological issues. I simply believe the scenes with the psychologist would have been more entertaining if she were not present. His issues could have been presented in a different format and they were toward the end of the series because the audience didnot enjoy watching half mob show and half In Treatment.

Melfi was like taking your medicine. You knew she was important to the series, but watching those sessions could seem like a chore.

Great analogy. I just wish the could have gotten the point across in a different manner. The writers were obviously brilliant so it could have been done.
