I was just thinking about this the other day. Janice for sure. Dr. Melfi too.
Dr. Melfi was just boring. Janice was boring and unlikeable.

LOL! You just made me remember why I didn't watch the show. I watched it once and thought "I really don't like these people. Why am I watching them?" I can't remember their names now, but at the time, I had a pretty low opinion of them.

That is why I quit watching. Ended up hating all the characters.

Same reason I quit watching Breaking Bad and ER in its final years.

There's no need to keep the thread open any longer.

Janice was a bad person, but I enjoyed her scenes once I figured out her character.

Dr. Melfi was just boring. She gets my vote.

They were all pretty much horrible people. Not a lot of redeeming qualities anywhere.

Melfi was at least trying to help someone. Scratch her off the list... no matter how boring she was, she wasn't evil.

I also think that Tony's daughter was at least a likable character.

I was going to mention her too. She started out a spoiled princess, but at least later did work for the underprivileged in NYC.

The guy portrayed by Joe ("Joey Pants") Pantalone... what was that character's name? He was very wicked.

While I wasn't a fan of Livia as a character, I really loved Nancy Marchand's work on the show. Aida Turturro on the other hand, has never impressed me in anything she's in.

They were all pretty bad. I hated every scene with Christopher and his girlfriend, both were super annoying. The sister was also terrible.

Edit: had names mixed up

I don't remember too many scenes with AJ and a girlfriend. Was that towards the end of the series?

No they killed off both before the end. They weren't big parts, but both of them were super annoying.

I remember one of them driving her into the woods. I thought Tony killed AJ after they had some sort of car accident, but maybe I'm misremembering that part. I watched it when it was actually on TV so it's been like 10 years.

Oh. Adrianna.

She wasn't the girlfriend of AJ. That was Christopher's girlfriend.

When the series was first on, I remembered being excited to see it during business travel, as I didn't have HBO at home. But watching it out of sequence was frustrating.

Amazon Video has the entire series available, and I started watching from the beginning. Haven't made much headway, but it is still entertaining. At this point, Jamie-Lynn Sigler is still too young to be uber hot (as she was to me in later shows). :-)

Such a shame James Gandolfini is gone. What a great performer.

Oops I had the names mixed up. Yeah I was talking about Christopher and his girlfriend.

AJ was Tony's son. Yeah he wasn't in it much so I never really cared one way or the other about him.

You realize AJ was Tony's son,right?

That would have made for a very different show with Tony whacking his son's GF and then his son.

While I was personally annoyed by quite a few of the characters, it made me realize the personal hell that Tony Soprano was in on a daily basis. He had a mother that tried to kill him, a psycho sister, a psychiatrist that caused him to peel away the onion and see himself, spoiled rotten kids and about a hundred other people in his life that caused him to be the way that he was.

To me, it was genius that David Chase and his team created and fleshed out these characters that made us crazy and that we hated as much as Tony did.
