Well, if it isn't Mrs. Soprano...
27 October 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

In terms of pure and simple belly-laughs, Somebody to Love doesn't come near Rosemary's Baby or Greenzo, but thanks to smart writing, the spot-on ensemble and a bunch of juicy guest stars it stays just as good as one expects the show to be.

Predictably, the main incident concerns Jack, who has a one-night stand with Celeste "C.C." Cunningham (Edie Falco), only to discover she's a Democrat (oh dear!) and working on a lawsuit against one of NBC's sister companies. Not very good. Kenneth, on the other hand, has accidentally ruined Jack's pants and tries to raise money for a new pair, effectively subjecting himself to all kinds of humiliation from the writers. And then there's Liz, who believes her new neighbor might be a terrorist, on the grounds that he's Middle Eastern and acts in a suspicious way (go figure...).

The terrorism joke is great as it allows further focus on the recurring motif of Liz's latent racism (remember all the African-American gags in the first season?) and one of Tina Fey's former SNL colleagues to step into the spotlight (speaking of SNL: what the hell happened to Rachel Dratch?). As for the Jack storyline, it deserves kudos for giving Falco, still not quite past her image as Carmela Soprano (then again, that's the price for starring in the best TV drama ever made), to prove she has quite a gift for comedy as well, although that might derive from the fact that she's squaring off with Alec Baldwin instead of James Gandolfini. In any case, still a lot of fun, as always.
