Week-Late Sopranos Blogging

I just finished last week's episode on the old DVR and, um, what? Show's been on the air for seasons after seasons after seasons and now with just a couple of episodes left before the end they suddenly introduce a major new Tony Soprano character trait? Like, was Tony a problem gambler two weeks ago? Last year? This is some sloppy, sloppy stuff; especially considering how long a hiatus they took to plot out these final episodes.
