    A movie, maybe?

    Or a 3 hour HBO special?

    I haven't heard of anything.

    I don't even know why they left ....
    HBO ran outta dough?
    The writers ran outta idears?

    Ah Madonn" .....

    This is a stupid thread. And, let's be honest, those final seasons kind of sucked. I do still appreciate the artistry of the final moments of the finale, but did we really need to spend so much time on AJ's depression or Carmella's spec house? It's like Chase resented the audience for enjoying the mob stuff.

    I don't care if the show ever returns. I'd rather see Carnivale or John from Cincinnati than the Sopranos again.

    Seasons 5 & 6 are masterpieces -- right up there with 1 & 2.

    According to Google and James Gandolfini, there are no plans for a movie, although I think one would be a prime selling point should HBO ever decide to introduce a new business model - PPV original movies. I can't imagine we're too far away from them charging an additional premium for expensive productions such as this and Game of Thrones.

    Yeah ....

    A HBO movie but paid for seperately ....
    I'd accept that.

    I'm being serious, by the way.

    Well they do want Entourage to become a movie franchise after it wraps up its shit final season. WILL AIR WALKER BE A HIT? WILL JOHNNY BANANAS MAKE IT TO AIR?!!?? WILL...I think that's the only plots they have going on now. Oh wait, will Ari get back together with his cunt of a wife.

    I think they should do a spinoff series. But this time they should get away from all that mafia unpleasantness and instead focus on the true backbone of the show... Dr. Melfie. All Melfie, all the time.

    On a related note... when is Wham going to get back in the studio again? I mean... It's not like George Michael ran out of talent or anything.

    I'm serious as a heart attack, by the way.

    I always hoped they would do a prequel, either a movie or the series, focusing on Junior & Johnny-boy Soprano working their way up the ranks. People would already know these characters plus you could throw in people like Feetch and Dickie Moltasanti and even lead up to young Tony, Syl, Paulie, Jackie, etc.. I think Chase ran his course with the 'present day' soprano family, but i think he could really do something with this

    Hey, I like that ....

    Dickie Moltosanti is anything but molto santi -- and they can somehow tie it in with "Boardwalk Empire",
    thereby bringiing the great Tony Blundetto back into the Sopranos fold.

    Kinda/sorta.

    Now you're just being silly. If you'd have said it died when Tony Blundetto did, I'd be more inclined to agree.

    They're in negotiations with Scorch. They're hammering out a deal to join forces as we speak.

    Look out world... here comes PFG Mob Candy TV!

    Died with Blundetto?!?

    What about the opener of Season 6?
    Or Vito getting caught in a gay club?

    Johnnycakes!

    And I heard Scorch is ready to set the world of slowscan TV afire.
    Kingdom of nobodywatchingness!

    When I said died, I don't mean "It's shit! It's complete shit! And no good ever came afterward!" I mean, after she died, I felt the show lost a lot of its footing (and arguably its most significant relationship). There were good episodes, and there were good seasons, but I don't think it ever really regained that core. Though, from what I remember, the final season seemed like a bunch of disconnected elements. The show always "looked" great, up until the end, but it didn't come together entirely for me.

    Oh yeah. That plot definitely didn't outstay its welcome or go on too long.

    Oh, come now ....

    Vito Spatofore hitting on Finn ....
    Glorking a security guard ....
    Doing his best extra-from-Cruisin' impression ....

    What's not to like?

    I bet he wishes he took it up the pipe from Jackie Aprile before he did 'im.
    Oh, what opportunities lost ....

    Maybe Frank Vincent can come back on the show & start a grassroots buzz.

    I know Ant'd be all for it.

    Listen to this advice:

    What makes you think Anthony would be all for a Sopranos return? What makes you think Frank Vincent, whose character died, would care about bringing the show back? We have the Internet, I doubt a tertiary will provided the pull needed to get it done. Ant seems more into The Wire now than The Sopranos (and, The Wire seems to have really become HBO's landmark show over the past year or so). Besides with Mad Men and Breaking Bad, fuck The Sopranos.

    You do raise a good point.

    Maybe a Sopranos return can set a precedent -- resuming a beloved franchise turns out good!

    And Phillie Leotardo isn't dead -- as long as he remains in all of our hearts ....
    Besides, taking the terminal dirtnap didn't stop Joey Pants, Adriana & Tony B. from making subsequent appearances.
    Like, you know, Phil can come back as "The Ghost Of Christmas Yet To Be" or somethin'.

    Dr. Who died with Pertwee.

    OK, look -- how's this ....
    "Red Dwarf" is rebooted.
    Frank Vincent stars as "Joey" -- the brash, toughtalkin' "connected" astronaut with a big mouth.
    And bigger dreams ....

    They fight the SpaceMonster -- portrayed with a Emmy-worthy performance by Dack "Can't I Sue Him?" Rambo.
    Right?
    So, Joey hits the monster & goes *pssh* *pssh*, right?
    Then the monster pulls out a QuantumFlamethrower & captures Venus.
    The rest writes itself.
