'The Sopranos' is a fantastic show. You can't help love these mobsters, because in between extortion and murder they show a level of wisdom and empathy rarely found in the most sophisticated environments.
I am following the show a little behind, I am at episode 6-7, Tony wakes from his coma and is approached by a evangelist pasteur showing him the way of salvation. Tony is reading a book about dinosaurs when he enters his room. I paraphrase the conversation.
Pasteur: "Scientists would have you believe that dinosaurs existed before humans. God created the world 6000 years ago and humans and dinsaurs lived together."
Tony Soprano: "Like in the Flintstones?"
Tony Soprano: "Yeah, but what about that carbon dating stuff and all"
Pasteur: "Tony, these people have an agenda."
Tony listens, nods his head, the preacher leaves. Then Tony's ever cynic nephew Christopher opens his mouth and utters these words I kid you not:
Christopher: "What's he sayin', there were dinosaurs back with Adam n' Eve?"
Tony Soprano: "I guess."
Christopher: "No way. T-Rex in the garden of Eden, Adam and Eve would be runnin' all the time scared shi..less, but the book says its supposed to be paradise"
There you have it. This show is written brilliantly.
