    The good news: Seeing the gang again in the first episode is great. It's like seeing it all over again.

    The bad news: Hearing AJ say, "What, no friggin' ziti?"

    I was wondering if there would be swearing. I take it there isn't? Also, how do you watch The Sopranos with no hardcore violence, adult content or swearing? Won't they have to delete like half of the episodes?

    Original was heavy on the adult sexual content... which, when it came to Kim Cattrall, was a good thing,...

    I heard they are showing two every week until the new season starts. Is that true?

    Sarah Jessica Parker said in one interview that the editing on the TBS version wasn't very heavy. Anyone care to confirm?

    As long as The L Word doesn't end up being sliced and diced (wrong cliche, perhaps?) to air on some "mainstream" channel ...

    The show actually required very little editing to be shown on A&E. I remember reading a few years ago that Chase always shot alternate scenes with toned-down language, anticipating that the show would eventually be syndicated.

    Pretty good foresight. Or maybe the idea came to him during a dream involving a vending machine, macaroni, a talking fish and Annette Bening...
