Whitlock Doesn't Get It, Part 478

"The popular sentiment among my friends who watch "The Sopranos" -- even the women -- is: "Man, I can't wait 'til Tony gets back to being Tony and starts whacking people. I'm sick of Tony being in a coma and being weak. They need to get back to the mob stuff."

I complained to a friend Sunday that watching "The Sopranos" now is like watching Shaquille O'Neal argue with his wife about taking out the trash or picking up the kids after school. I know it goes on, but I just want to see Shaq dunk on people.

David Chase has either forgotten why we watch "The Sopranos" or he doesn't care why we watch. It's probably the latter. He wants us to watch the show "the right way.""

-Jason Whitlock on ESPN.com, showing that he's just ignorant about televised drama as he is about sports. If, six seasons in, he can't appreciate that "The Sopranos" is about more than just "Tony whacking people," then he doesn't deserve to enjoy it.

Good one BLOGGER. David Chase isn't an idiot. All this stuff is leading to something big.
