Everybody does hurt
11 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OKay,this is a bit of a touchy feely episode similar to a soap opera. But on some level I've always viewed The Sopranos as a 'soap opera with guns.' Feelings and actions are often heightened and exaggerated. As for Meadow and AJ's newfound empathy with the poor and unfortunate, they are not much more than lip service,at least in AJ's case. It doesn't take much effort to just SAY you feel sorry for someone which is all that AJ really does.

I enjoyed seeing Tony finally feeling guilty about the train wreck he caused in another person's life. In this case it was Gloria. However it all comes back to Tony and his self-centered world. He wants to know what HE did, is HE a bad guy, DID Gloria blame HIM??

I find the utter "me,me,me" attitudes in this episode in total keeping with the theme of 'The Sopranos'. Still maybe too much talk and not enough action for some viewers.
