I'll have to check it out, how many seasons/episodes are they up to? I've been looking for a side dish to BG ever since they canceled the Inside on me.

I haven't seen it personally, but I have a co-worker who raves about it any time I mention the Sopranos.

He also raves about The Wire.

Very well done show. Before I started watching it I read up about it, and it seems a lot of people can't understand the language...all I have to say to those people is go read a book and expand your vocabulary, it's not difficult at all if you know English.

Yeah, the vocab is a bit dated, but only if you a samll vocab is it really an issue and even then its never hard to understand if you consider the context. You like it so far?

The show is good, but really starts to pick up after the main character gets his attitude adjusted around midseason.

I actually don't like this show. My roommate and I used to watch it because it would come on either before or after Sopranos. The main reason that I don't like it is because I always feel like I need to go take a shower after watching it. Everything and every one in the show is just so disgustingly dirty that I end up feeling like that by the time an episode is over. My roommate ended up feeling the same way when he saw it.

I'm thinking that as soon as he gets out of the Nav he should look forward to his lucrative career in gay porn. An ass like that could be worth millions to the right perverts.
