The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

Sopranos weirdness

Does anybody know what was going with the Sopranos last night? Specifically the strange slo-mo followed by a wipe that followed Carmela’s talking to her (former?) lover at the school?

Completely jarring and out of character for the show. So, simple mistake in the editing bay? Devious scheme by director to draw attention to a subtle detail? What gives?

While on the topic of the Sopranos, the season has been a bit slow, but last night’s episode finally started to turn up the burners, and next week looks like it’s going to be really good. Can’t wait.
