Very "Sopranoesque" David Chase Episode
5 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David Chase cut his teeth and learned much of his craft as a writer and producer on the Rockford files. No surprise then that "the Jersey Bounce" shows us some early hints of what we can expect in his later series "the Sopranos." The Jersey accents and mannerisms in this episode are the stereotypical New Jersey caricatures we would also later see in the Sopranos. The over-the-top Jerseyness displayed by the two guest actors is great and is an early indication that Mr Chase was busing on Jersey before busting on Jersey was considered cool! The scene where the two Jersey boys are explaining themselves and trying to curry favor with the local Southern California mob boss is pure Sopranos! Greg Antonacci would eventually go on to appear in at least a few Sopranos episode as would other Rockford regulars George Loros and Joe Santos. Those fans of the Sopranos might enjoy this early view of the what the future may bring.
