Enjoyed the new Sopranos tonight--this year's cast additions (Steve Buscemi, Robert Loggia) are great. The series is as popular as ever with people, as always mostly for the wrong reasons. Lots of people, bizarrely, find Tony and his crew heroic in an odd, pistol-whipping kind of way; I find them reptilian (though tonight's episode very obviously compared Tony to a bear). I like the show because it depicts an amoral creature's self-induced destruction; the corruption and violence that rule Tony's life are slowly destroying everything he holds dear, and the process is fascinating to watch.
