Storyline

It's time for the annual church fête and as usual Paulie is responsible for the 5 day affair. It's always been a money maker for Paulie - Tony's father, Johnny Soprano, had control of it before him - but a new parish priest thinks that the $10,000 Paulie contributes as the church's share is too low and thinks $50,000 would be more appropriate. Paulie balks at the figure, at least in part he says because his own costs have been rising. One thing he does to save money is to hire second-rate carnival rides, something that comes back to haunt him when one of the rides breaks down and people are injured. Paulie is also under a great deal of stress after his doctor doesn't like the results of his PSA test and schedules a biopsy. When Christopher's girlfriend Kelly tells him she's pregnant, he asks her to marry him. He's still fighting his addiction however and falls off the wagon. Written by garykmcd

Sure Is one Helluva Ride...................
20 May 2006 | by (Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

Wow ! I'd always remembered this episode from the Season Trailer, the scene that got me was the Huge mob presence at this Italian Feast.

And Woah, what a terrific episode.

There's a hilarious wine heist that Chris and Tony participate in and end up looting a fair amount from the later mocked Biker Gang "The Vipers".

And for everyone who wondered what went down when Chris went to tell Tony about Adrianna and her FBI Story - the flash back was awesome. Filled us in on everything that happened that tragic day and kudo's to Chase for wrapping that hole up.

Paulie and Bobby's face off at the festival was more comical than hostile too. Certainly not as exciting as the trailer made out. But hey, that's HBO.

And as for Paulie and his Virgin Mary sight - GREAT STUFF ! Certainly a fright I got seeing that too, so imagine poor Mr Walnuts ! It was heartening to see him back with Nucci too after Episode 4's fall out between them.

All in All - 8/10.

A Solid episode.
