Wonder where the desert scene was filmed? Was beautiful. Even more beautiful for Tony, I'm sure.

It just brings tears to my eyes to think that this beautiful work of art will be ending after 3 more episodes and there is just nothing we can do to bring it back.
I remember when we were able to mount letter writing campaigns and telegram campaigns to bring back great TV shows. I know it's not fair to expect that just because we want it, we can make these people produce more shows. After all, they are human beings and not machines. But, on the other hand, it just seems that something this wonderful belongs to the ages and there must be a way that we can give something of ourselves to keep it coming.
I guess this would be the moment that I would break down and have a good long cry in Melfi's office. I really do feel like bawling. This show is just so much more than a TV show. I just don't know how to deal with people who don't understand. I'm sure they think I'm just nuts and I just don't know what to tell them. It's impossible to explain my feelings for this show to people who don't know the show or who have not participated in this forum. It's just all oh so very, very sad that it is going to be over and that we will be left with ordinary schlock TV. I can't handle that. I think I will take an axe to my TV and demolish it before I will resign myself to watching America's Greatest Whatever. I couldn't stand that. Oh, please. Help me please? Can anyone give me any advice on how to live after The Sopranos? There must be a way.

If you hear words you don't know, look them up and find out what they mean. If you see references others have made to earlier works, look them up and find out the deep history behind the many works that Chase refers to that are epic stories. Epic stories fill in a lot of the details that Chase touches on. Knowing them will bring out the true meaning of the entire series.
If nothing else, you will find years worth of reading material. During the coma episodes Dr. Tashlan was mentioned several times. That is in reference to the C.S. Lewis series "Narnia". Reading the books will add to your life experience and understanding.
That is only one of the many examples of clarifying information that Chase has laid out for those who want to understand more.
This show is a multi-layered work that needs to be explored in depth, over time.
For every person who complained about the "Vito" story or the "coma" story, there are a thousand others who have not invested any thought into why these episodes were a part of an inter-locking story.
It is an open book to anyone who wants to take the time to look further into the depths of Chase's epic tale.
