Hey, I said arguably the worst script!SilvioMancini wrote:I humbly disagree that "Christopher" was the worst script . That show had a lot of dialogue in it about the creation of America and the genocide imposed on American Indians. It was the only time I can remember American TV prime time talking about that subject with such wisdom and laughter. I know alot of people hated this episode, but I think blaming the writer is a little silly given that it takes more than a script to make the Sopranos. Anyway, funny how one persons least favorite episode can be someone elses' favorite. My love for it ironically comes from being of American Indian\Italian heritage and culture. "Christopher" nails that right on the head in a graceful and honest way. Sorry to rant in here about it......... We'll talk about it again when we get to season 4!
Sil, I agree with you for the most part. "Christopher" wasn't a bad episode (none of them were close to bad), but it would make my personal short list of least favorite ones. There were about 3 or 4 episodes in Sopranos history that felt a little off to me, and despite all of the strong points you mentioned, "Christopher" really took a strange detour to me. It was a weird self-contained episode that really came out of left field.
As I said in another thread though, I felt Chase was somewhat perplexed with certain Italian-American groups who felt offended by The Sopranos, and this was the episode he chose to address the topic.
