Once you realize what the title of this episode references, it’s hard not to see it as the funniest title of the series. Gavin and Hannibal wrap up Season 6A with a discussion that touches upon the successes and failures of the season overall, the plausibility of AJ’s new romance, and why Tony’s “every day is a gift” philosophy is difficult to maintain when one is part of the mob.
Gavin and Hannibal agree that ‘All Due Respect’ is a fitting and fulfilling conclusion to Season 5. This finale manages to do an incredible job of bringing Season 5 full circle, and in typically understated fashion, sets up the climactic seasons to come. Your hosts describe how this episode presents a fresh examination of Tony’s role as a leader, as well as a couple surprising twists, and the establishment of a potential new Mafia supervillain.
Gavin and Hannibal may have gone a little overboard with this one, as they bring you nearly 90 minutes of podcast glory talking about the spectacularly climactic Season 1 finale. So many questions! Is Livia genuinely going senile, or is this simply her most devious chess move yet? Is Jimmy really a rat? Does Tony actually care about Artie deep down, or is he just a sociopath? Your hosts will “remember the little moments like this, that were good,” and more, on this week’s The Sopranos Show!
