The Sopranos - All Seasons

I imagine that at most meetings that happen at HBO, someone ends up writing "Darker and Edgier" on a whiteboard, and then underlines in three or four times for emphasis, and then says, "Did you even read my email? I asked for darker and edgier."

This is the most overrated show of all time. The first season was okay, except the by-the-numbers mafia plot and that characters were mostly stolen from things Scorsese and others had done years or decades earlier.

After season one's story arc, about a quarter of the episodes were bottom-tier soap opera, and three quarters were gimmicky one-offs ("Imagine a mafioso at an X! What a incongruous situation for a mobster to be in lol!!"). Imagine Mr. Ed but instead of a horse it's a psychologist and instead of Wilbur it's a bunch of characters stolen from much better stories. That's being generous to the Sopranos. Once in a while, Mr. Ed's jokes would actually land.

Even worse than the show was the theme song, which is the bottom of the barrel of white guys ripping of old blues.

MST3K: The Gauntlet (2018)


More consistent than The Return. More consistent than the original show. If they can make six good episodes every year or two, I'm a happy man.
