A Late Monday at the Movies

Yeah, it's Wednesday, so what.

Last Thursday I got The Sopranos: The Complete First Season DVD set from the library. Since then I've watched the first eight epidsodes. That's all I'm watching. I like the show a lot. The plot is great, the acting is superb, it's dramatic, it's funny, it's great. But I can't get past the graphicness of it. It was like watching an eight hour R rated movie. It was too much for me to take. Like the strip club for instance. Instead of just showing the sign out front to show that they're in the back of the strip club, they felt the need to show the dancers almost every single time. And some of the killings were a little graphic for my liking, too. I know it's a show on HBO not NBC, but still. I can only handle so much of that. I don't think I should have to fast forward and/or hide my eyes two or three times in some epidsodes, the nudity gets ridiculous and it's not even necessary to the story. Like I said, the acting was awesome. And I really got into the story line. But too much is too much. And I've had too much.
