i disagree. Carmella is completely complicit in what Tony does, and always has been, since before they were married.. Skylar found out and was mad as hell, and then came around to a point. But this all happened over less than a year's time (in the series).

i do think there are some similarities in the two series of course but it's hard to say they're so much alike when one happens over like 10 years and the other over 1 1/2 or whatever

@ fuzzy
You're the one who came into my Sopranos thread and derailed it by talking about your mental illness. Stop playing the victim man. If you had mentioned it in the chat thread there's no way I would have bothered to reply.

Either way, I was being sincere.

I mean there is notable differences in all of the similarities. While I guess Carmella is complicit, she definitely chooses to be willfully ignorant of the darker side of what goes on in the "business" in much the same way Skylar did.

There's just a ton of unarguable parallels between the series'. That's fine and all, but I never saw it mentioned when the critics were always raving about how original Breaking Bad was.

I just chose to be cognizant of words that cause pain and represent ugliness to marginalized groups of people. 10 years from now when society is more sensitive about this you probably won't dare utter it anymore.

Why be behind the curve when it comes to something hurtful like bigotry?

You can literally murder multiple people and orchestrate multiple other murders but as long as you look after your kids, you're not a total monster, according to fuzzy.

Yeah, Trumps a fly by the seat of his pants kinda guy and sometimes he'll say something offensive, but it's better than these puppets like Hillary Clinton who have every word scripted and pre-tested with focus groups and nonsense like that.

I never said that, or at least I didn't mean it to come out like that.

Basically Tony and Walt are both bad men trying to balance their evil way of life with a positive morale home life. And that's quite unusual to see in a TV series.

i don't think the point fuzzy is making about the similarities between teh Sops!!1 and BrkBrah are that outrageous. this is just the board's usual MO to set him on fire for everything he says. some of his points are valid imho. yeah walt may be more malicious than tony, who has trouble coping with the consequences of his actions, but they're both anti-heroes.

also, i'm guessing breegers is drunk/inebriated rn and in the past he has expressed regret for using terms like 'retard' or 'downs syndrome' as pejoratives, for which he'll probably apologize later. in which case, it would be a startlingly similar behavioral pattern to one that a certain mr. roes, first name fuzzy, has displayed in the past.

sopranos was fantastic. I saw it way after it aired but it's been a couple of years already. I see a few parallels with breaking bad but I don't think it's a rip-off. I think it gave 'the television series' in general a lot more credibility though. the genre probably wouldn't be so popular now if not for the sopranos.

i have this while sober if it's really loud. I'm afraid it might be tinnitus.

for instance when my band starts a song and the bass comes in later, I often think I'm playing the wrong note, or someone else is. while that might well explain the problem, it often turns out I had been playing the right note later on in the song.

i agree there are similarities, especially if you break it down to "they are both anti-heroes"

i never saw tony as having problems coping with the consequences of his actions. or i guess, he doesn't want to change. he just wants to stop having panic attacks. so in that way he has problems coping, but cognitively it's not like he wants to change his behavior. he is totally fine with his behavior. but it has been like 5 years since i watch it, maybe i am forgetting some stuff

...what?

Carmella is a willing participant; she knows what Tony does and chooses to look the other way (mostly) because she likes the lifestyle it affords her. She's a massive fucking hypocrite.

Skyler is at first ignorant of Walt's activities, is an innocent bystander and eventually reluctantly and not very happily accepts her new reality. She is a sympathetic victim of circumstance.

Y'know, except in the eyes of all those MRA fuckwads who hated Skyler as the series aired.

same. It could be hearing loss because I have exposed myself to a lot of loud music in my life, but I think extreme volume may also just confuse your brain.

not sure about that. it's new to me, after years of playing amidst amps turned up to high volumes in order to not be quieter than the drummer.

fucken drummer.

If the Sopranos was a show about a bunch of middle aged female opera singers, their everyday struggles and ensuing shenanigans I'd watch the shit out of it.
