That is a GREAT idea CCC! It's not too late to do so. We still have many weeks to go before this portion of the final season ends and since we will all be watching these episodes over and over again via tape or "on demand" when this portion of the season does end, a thread like that would provide a terrific place for ongoing dialogue between the end of this season and the resumption next year. I think it would be a natural fit in the "Kitchen Sink" room. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/wink.gif ALT=";)">

thanks billymac, but I keep thinking it should be an ongoing thread like that tony's potential change here on this forum, because its a part of the seasons theme, so I wonder.

Anyways, I just want to say that for an episode that was initially thought of as weak by me and upgraded to good, we have gotten more posts than the last weeks episode, which I thought was a return to form. interesting stuff

Instead of killing Benny, Artie kills the Bunny, then cooks
and serves it up to a late-night couple in his restaurant.

Looks like Artie's disillusionment with the good,
old-fashioned work ethic is leading him into
temptation, the Faustian pact, forcing him through
his emerging fury and frustrations, to join Tony
and the Mob. Even Charmaine won't be able to keep
him from accepting this inevitable fate.

Re: "-Oh! Did anyone catch that GF3 reference? 'and you know I'm gonna eat here until I fall off the chair' I loved it. Meaning of course, 'till he dies - referencing Michael Corleone's ultimate demise. In fact, looked at broadly, it's plausible that it's a subtle clue that Tony's begun to think there may be another possible ending for him then just the two he earlier told Melfi about. I know he said 'dead', but he meant clipped. Now he means a peacefull death..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The main argument that throws any GF12or3 references
totally away from "The Sopranos," except as tv-level
parody and anachronism, is there's a world of
difference between Sicily (the GF source) and
Naples (The Sopranos roots). Also, tailors come
from Calabria, not Naples.

Incidentally, Chase apparently was brought up
Baptist!

Re: Bacall

I'm sure a lot of you know this, but it may be of some interest to the younger fans out there. Lauren [Betty] Bacall was a big time actress in the 40's & 50's and was married to Humphrey Bogart, IMO was one the truly great actors of all time. In the early 50's, they started the original "Rat Pack" a group who hung out in the various bars and clubs in Hollywood. Sinatra was one of the pack and when Bogey got cancer and died in 57, Sinatra took over over as the head and it evolved into the group with Dino, Sammy, Lawford and Bishop and who were also pretty tight with Sam Giancana and a lot of OC around that time. Supposedly FAS came pretty close to marrying Bacall after Bogey's death.

Was watching "Luxury Lounge" again with some friends the other night, it really is a funny episode, in a twisted way.

Re: Mozart

Okay, I got an e-mail asking what the "K626" meant in the Mozart post... The K system was a numbering system used to catalog Mozart's many works. As anyone who watched Amadeus remembers, Mozart's Requium was his last work, and it is numbered K626--he wrote 626 "pieces" of music.. Pretty good for a guy who died at 35.

After re-watching Luxury Lounge on DVD and getting more of the lines (via subtitles), I have found a new appreciation for this episode. The commentary really helped me understand the episode's themes as a whole. Weimer, the co-executure producer (??-cant remember his official title) does an outstanding to explain many of the scenes.

Great stand-alone episode, can be viewed on a whim and enjoyed w/out needing to watch the episodes immediately before it.
