i'll say! Do you have the link? Surely they cast that part on Nurse Jackie on purpose- maybe thinking that they had this great chemistry from the Sopranos time that would pull in more of an audience?

Personally, i never picked up on a great natural chemistry between the actors or the priest and Carmela characters as played, even though it was implied, etc. i just didn't think the priest part was played very well. i have known priests for whom some women were strongly attracted in a platonic kind of way, but on the Sopranos it just didn't sell very well, imho. She had more chemistry with the wallpaper guy! i wish they had had a more believable natural magnetism, like X-Files Scully and Mulder's unrequited, but powerful and real connection.

When Carm threw her famous Ziti with the basil layer in the trash, i thought- what a waste of good Ziti! He wasn't even worth that. Good riddance!

LOL. I seriously couldn't understand Carmela on that one. Trash the priest but not the "fuckin' ziti"! She spent WAY too much time making that to dump it over his shenanigans.

I did notice they're running the Nurse Jackie premiere free on a DirecTV channel, and I think Showtime is offering it free online for a while. I saw about the last 10 minutes of it by accident. I already saw some things that disappointed me from a writing perspective, even though I know that's not giving it much of a chance. Oh how the Sopranos has ruined me for watching anything that's less than great.

Uh, I think you misunderstood. I don't WANT to compare it, and I don't do it consciously. But it changes one's perspective of what's possible with drama and what's truly good no matter how much one does or doesn't want that changed perspective.

Oh ok. I apologize for the misunderstanding. The only time I compare shows is if they are in the exact same genre. For instance, I compare Battlestar Galactica (new series) with Stargate: Sg-1, Stargate: Atlantis and sometimes films in the same genre. I don't know if that's fair since they are different mediums.

I have only compared The Sopranos with one show, and that is The Wire since I consider both to be crime dramas. And, which should not come as a shock, The Sopranos wins hands down in my book.
