HBO is airing a "Behind the Scenes" making of the 6th season Wednesday night (think it's at 8:45? EST). I'm planning my week around it :

Anyone going to be watching with me?????

I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

I'll be watching too. The Sopranos is the main reason I'm willing to shell out the extra money for HBO. I'm really looking forward to the new season!

I saw it. It was okay, basically emphasized how hard everyone works and how well everyone gets along on the set.

Gave absolutely no hints whatsoever as to what's coming up in season 6.

I am eagerly awaiting the first episode! This is the only TV show I watch, and the sole reason we have cable (the TV's in our bedroom -- the kids are totally TV-free).

We are pumped for this season too. We watched the teaser and agree really no info given. Looks like AJ has a mullet- Janet is going to get more wacko... that's pretty much all I remember.

From the reviews I've seen regarding the first few episodes of the 6th season, this season is supposedly better than any of the others. The first epsiode in particular is supposed to be fantastic (and shocking).

Can't wait!!

RedWine, yes! Dh told me he'd heard on the radio today that we will NOT believe the last three minutes of the show!!! I wonder if Adrianna comes walking in the door....

Dh is supposed to leave out of town on business Sun. night---he's actually going to stay home to watch Tony before he leaves....that's my guy! We're planning a huge day Sunday so all the little ones will be good and asleep before nine!!! Can you tell I'm SO excited??

yes ,this is the last season...kind of. There will be 8 "bonus episodes" that will run 6 months after this season ends. So, including tomorrow night, there are a total of 18 episodes left of the Sopranos.

Yes, I've been hearing that the last 3 minutes are amazing. Someone's gonna get whacked. Paulie is a likely candidate, IMO. Christopher, perhaps? Christopher is just too central to the show to die this early. Melfie? WHo knows?

i feel so silly being this excited. We are not a TV family, except for this one show (dh and I did watch the last 3 episodes of Project Runway, however). Kids don't watch any TV at all. I feel REALLY goofy for looking forward to this so much.

Can't wait. :

I found out some spoilers, if anyone's interested, pm me tonight or tomorrow. I hear the first episode is supposed to be incredible, and so jolting that it changes the feel of the show thereafter.

OMG, I am getting so excited!!! I watched the Sopranos preview last night, and I agree--I didn't gain any insight except AJ's hair is a mess and Meadow and Finn make a gorgeous couple.

This coming from a mama who didn't watch TV for seven years.....I am so embarrassed at my excitement level over a television show :

And, to top off by nasty HBO addiction, I'm going to watch Big Love afterwards, and hope it's as good as it looks

I love spoilers, too...but I am resisting the urge to peek ahead. I did that last season with Deadwood (yes, another addiction), and I regretted it. And, to completely come clean with the depths of my HBO thing....I admit to reading televisionwithoutpity.com.

Dh is out right now with the little ones, making sure they're good and exhausted so they'll be asleep in time for me to Soprano. I'm worried it might backfire! Am I pitiful or what!!??!!

If you're pitiful, Georgia, then so am I. I woke up dh this morning by singing, "Woke up this mornin', GOT yourself a GUH-UHN!!!!!" He thinks I'm rather pathetic -- but I caught him watching a 6th season trailer online this afternoon, so I know he's looking forward to it as well.

I am so excited!! I had family over tonight, made lasagna and all of the trimmings and we toasted Tony

OK, my predictions for who gets whacked: Phil (one of Johnny Sack's crew - Diet Tony, aka Steve Buschemi, killed his brother in season 6) or maybe the really big guy that Finn (Meadow's man) caught, um, *servicing* a security guard in the construction site parking lot....but I'm leaning towards Phil.

It's almost on!! (and Big Love looks good too!!)

Mama to DS (8) and DD (7) Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself." And the London Underground is not a political movement.

It was a decent start to the season. In the past, I always felt like the episodes tended to get more intense over the course of the season. I am sure that this season won't be any different.

Yay for the breastfeeding shot and references!! And a 15-month-old to boot! Of course, Janice is still a nut case.

I thought it was hilarious when she said, all he ever wants is the breast. I am so proud of them for highlighting her nursing, even though she is a nut. I didn't quite catch the baby's name.

So, does anyone think it was delusion on the shooter's part or part of an insanity defense?

I definitely think it was delusion. The way he reacted afterward -- he looked so scared, so lost, so confused. It was really pitiful. I actually felt really sorry for the guy and wanted to give him a hug.

Of course, the victim won't die. But the next few episodes will be great in terms of power struggles among everyone else.

One of the reasons I love this show is that it does NOT glamorize violence or the Mob. All of the characters are at times despicable, and almost always pathetic in so many ways -- no sane viewer would ever want to be caught up in their world.

What a great series. Sigh. This show is an art form all to itself -- and I am one HUGE snob.

The baby's name is Nica.

Poor Bobby, you couldn't pay me to marry Janice. Did you notice Tony's other sister was back too?

You guys are good so I won't wreck the end either. Imagine if the victim dies, omg what a surprise.

I still wonder if Christopher is upset about Adrianna, he didn't seem to be. I thought for sure we'd see him back on drugs.

Well, he was, er, the giver. And it was Vito. I believe the receiver was a security guard at the site.
