Commence drooling... now

In the mail today: The first two episodes of the final "Sopranos." No, I haven't watched yet. I may not for a couple of days, just to drive all the fans at the office who want to borrow the DVD cuh-razy. I can be mean like that.
UPDATE: I guess David Chase and company wanted to eeeeease us back into things. The first episode is sloooooooooooooooow. So very sloooooooooow. Charitably, you could describe it as setting up future action. Things get rolling in the second one, although there's still as many mobsters dying of old age as there are of bullets.
Speaking of HBO, last night's "Rome" finale was tremendous. That episode covered like eight years or something of real history (it's been awhile since Prof. Ferrell's Roman History 303), but it delivered, I think, one of the best final episodes in TV history. If you don't have HBO or didn't pick up on this series, definitely catch it on DVD.

Finally, the "Battlestar Galactica" season finale was pretty amazing. I won't even try to explain -- if you're at all open to the idea of "Battlestar Galactica," you're watching by now. Better than a hundred "Grey's Anatomys" though, I can tell you that. And no more until 2008. That's "Sopranos-esque."

Rome - SWEET! The wife and I didn't watch the second season live because we found the historical pop-ups provided in season one's DVD features to be so darn good. Can't wait for season 2 (alas, the final one at that) to hit the stores.

Haven't watched BSG yet either... sounds like some good TV viewing!

With all theses season finales (Prison Break is almost done too) going on at least we have The Shield to look forward to.

BTW, you get over the funk you were sporting?
