    Great show!

    I liked The Wire and Carnivale too, though I already figured out how Carnivale is going to end.

    I have never watched, sounds like Godfather XXXVIII, but I have 3 friends that have said when it's over, good bye HBO.

    I was talking about Carnivale in my post, but I was just joking. I've never seen it, but I don't know anyone else that has, either.

    And, as for the Sopranos, even if you don't like mafia movies, it's worth giving it a shot. The writing is simultaneously really crass and vulgar and really complex and smart. All of the characters are unique and realistic and three-dimensional. Obviously, the violence and nudity gets the most attention, but at the end of the day, it's all about a character who has trouble balancing his work life and personality with his home life and personality.

    True story: The Godfather bored me to tears. I fell asleep trying to watch The Godfather II. But I will never, ever miss an episode of The Sopranos (it helps if you grow up in Jersey, too).

    Wow. Tell your friends about Deadwood. Far better than the Sopranos right now. That last season sucked so badly that I do not even want to watch this season.

    Carnivale is a story about an eternal struggle between good and evil set in the great depression/dust bowl era. The champions for both sides are each descended from long lines of champions. When one generation dies in the struggle, the power is passed to the next generation. I found the show very entertaining. I hope they are just taking a pause for the remaining episodes like they did with the Sopranos.

    As screwed as I am, I called Cablevision and added HBO to my lineup last night. It's only an extra $11.95 a month for 12 HBO channels and a free month of HBO on demand. I'm only here a few weeks more but enough to get in 3 Sopranos episodes, well worth $11.95! I already watched 2 episodes last night on the On-Demand.

    Can't wait for the season opener tonight. If I don't get my latest job opportunity I was thinking about joining the mob, so I could always use a few pointers. :)

    Jim, check out HBO OnDemand's "Late Night" section. It'll cheer you up. ;)
