    Nope, this is not the last season. This is season 5 with 13 episodes. Season 6 is already planned with 10 episodes.

    Big fan of the show but I thought it was pretty boring. They take 14 months off and thats the best they can come up with? Half the show was about them dealing with a bear on their property. Oh well, maybe they will get better.

    I enjoyed it too but I think the part with the bear was a bit of a stretch. There are so many diffrent things that can happen between the charactors like Tony and Melfie, Paulie and Chris, Johnie Sac and Tony and with all the new charactors coming in for this season. I was also thinking that Johnny Sac put something in Carmine's lunch to stroke him out. Anybody else think this?

    ABSOLUTELY. That was the first thing I thought of.

    I thought the whole bear subplot was pretty dumb. I was happy it was in there though because I saw a bear on the edge of the woods driving on Rt70, and no one believes me because they don't think there are any bears here.

    I was thinkin this afternoon about the whole Russian incident with Paulie and Christopher back in Season 3, since Steve Buscemi directed that episode, and now he's playing a character this season. Last season, I thought the Russian would resurface and spark a Russian/Italian mob war. Since it didn't happen last season, I'm predicting it for this season. It was hinted at in tonight's episode.

    Is the money still in with the bird food?

    I bet that guy that just got out of jail and was sitting with Uncle Junior, Bobby, and Tony is going to be this years ******* loose canon like Ralph and Richie before him...

    Anyone else have any thoughts/predictions this year?

    I think you guys missed the bear symbolism. Tony always had ducks in the backyard which metaphorically represented his "issues". Now apparently his issues have grown to bear-ish proportions. In the final scene he is "loaded for bear" meaning there is going to be a confrontation of epic proportions.

    pretty interesting what you say about the bear analogy. Certainly didn't look at it that way. Still I was just expecting more after such a long layoff.

    Excactly what I was thinking! I think Tony's cousin (getting out of jail)is gonna be the loose cannon. I'm also looking forward to the Russian. Pine Barrens was my favorite episode, I've watched it over and over again...have all seasons on DVD.

    I also thought it was interesting how everyone else failed in their handling of the bear problem. AJ was absolutely pathetic ( crying Mommy) I guess he won't ever be running a mob family! Carmela scared him off albeit temporarily.
    The government (Div of Fish and Game were ineffectual bureaucrats), even Tony's henchman was half-assed. Finally Tony took the reins to deal with it himself. As far as the Russian, I think we are going to see him again, Paulie's and Christopher's bragging kind of foretells that.

    Ben, next Sunday, i'm coming over to YOUR house to watch it; i thought i was the only one to recognize the symbolism in the episodes, ESPECIALLY in the first one of the season...!
    Hot stuff...

    Folks, the first episode of the season sets things up for the WHOLE season... The music at the beginning and the end of the show, the bear, Dr. Melfie - everything.

    I thought the wacking of the waiter was a little silly, I mean your reputed gangsters in a public place for 3 plus hours you leave a ****ty tip, the waiter chases you down, you kill him, and take off - yet the police can't put two and two together?

    Their conversation later cracked me up. "This thing is silly, Chris, one of us could have gotten hurt". What sensitivity! LOL

    no no... the best line was right after they whacked the waiter as they're running away- Paulie grabs the money from the check presenter and Chris says: "That's MY money Paulie!".

    Hilarious!

    The bear IS Tony! Remember, the bear is big and scary to Anthony Jr and to his mom. Tony shows up and is wearing black exactly like the bear. In the end, Tony is waiting for a conflict with.....himself.
