Sepinwall's book excerpt on The Sopranos: The Russian, and The End

    If you've hung around here for a few years, you probably know I take my television very seriously. So this is my pitch to buy Sepinwall's new book, which is great. It's $8 if you have a Kindle.


    Or, at the very least, read this chapter about the Sopranos, which covers some of our old favorite topics.


    l'm so glad Chase didn't let Winter talk him into bringing back the Russian.

    Re: Sepinwall's book except on The Sopranos: The Russian, and The End

    I am wondering what the structure is. I don't want to read a book that's going to blend all these shows together often and spoil The Wire or Deadwood or others I haven't watched.

    Broken into chapters. So you can skip the ones you you haven't seen. I believe it goes:

    Prologue: (Brief Hill Street Blues/St Elsewhere/NYPD Blue riff)
    Battlestar Galactica
    Friday Night Lights
    Mad Men
    Breaking Bad

    I really gotta find a way to read this without a Kindle or whatever.

    Do you have a paperback reader?

    You can straight buy the book. It just costs $16.99 as a paperback.

    Also, can't you read books on your computer just with a Kindle app? I think that's possible, yes?

    This book is very high on my list of things to read next.

    I only have watched (as in, all or almost all episodes) four of those shows. I'm sure the essays are excellent, but I will wait on it. I do plan on watching The Wire and maybe Breaking Bad, too, so maybe after I plow through those. I am about finished with Friday Night Lights.

    Yes, I'm reading the book right now on my IPad with the Kindle app.

    Kudos to Sepinwall for going the self-publishing route, too.

    Yeah, except you can't buy the book up here on amazon.ca. And amazon.com won't ship to Canada. And I really want to read this. Have seen all the shows except Buffy, battlestar & Friday Night. None of them interested me.

    That, and not being able to walk around with a Glock in the inside pocket of my Leafs jacket. :)
