A Few Kind Words

The thing that will be missed the most when The Sopranos stops making new episodes is that there's frankly no other television show or even movie that sparks such conversation after each episode. People are reading into every little detail of every last moment, trying to figure out where the series is going to end. There are two critics in particular who offer the best commentary, and we'll link to their stuff every week:

  1. Fellow Blogger Matt Zoller Seitz is too good to write for any mainstream publication. Even if you don't watch the show, you'll feel like you've seen each episode three times after reading his stuff.
  2. Gotta give Bill Simmons credit for this guy. Tim Goodman's The Bastard Machine is a daily blog about all things TV, not just the Sopranos. Here's the link to his weekly Sopranos takes, and it's as good if not better than what Seitz does.
It's difficult to find good film criticism since we lost Pauline Kael to here great reward and Roger Ebert's been out for over a year. But these guys at least offer quality shit on what's worth spending time watching.
