And the juxtaposition of all of that with Peggy, unwillingly bringing another lonely soul into this world.
I did not expect to see the Sopranos topped in my lifetime. I especially didn't expect to see it topped -- perhaps -- in the same year.
For all you TV beat writers, this show has surely made the new season of network shows seem especially pale and uninspired.

Unfortunately, I've gotta go the other way on "Control," which I found to be a tedious slog. In my opinion, a much, much, much better take on similar material was Michael Winterbottom's "24 Hour Party People." If you haven't seen that one, I can't recommend it highly enough.
If the season for The Office gets aborted after only a half-dozen episodes, I'm going to be seriously depressed.
The impact is more likely to be felt in 2008.
