    B.B,

    If it's only just started in the USA, E4 won't be able to show it till at least June 2004, and then C4 will get it towards the end of this year! Unless, they have offered to pay a huge sum of money to show Season 5 earlier than normal.

    From memory we were only a couple of months behind the states on series four so keep an eye out, knowing sky they will start to advertise it about two weeks after it starts to air.

    they are currently nearing the end of Season 3 on E4. I guarantee they will then show season 4 before season 5 starts; so around 13-14 weeks.

    ???

    I was talking about E4

    not sure about C4, I can not remember if they start showing it once this series is completed on E4 or a few episodes in.

    Series 4 was going to be the last - David Chase (producer / director / writer) never wanted to make more than 4. (Well, to be precise, it nearly didn't progress beyond the pilot because it isn't suitable for the advertisers on the mainstream networks, I think Fox had the pilot - and then after a year HBO rescued it and they made series one, as the only one, not expecting it to be a success). As we know it took off big style! (And we have a lot to thank HBO for - not just Sopranos).

    Then before they started series 4 the actors demanded more money – it delayed filming whilst they sorted it, and the series was in jeopardy (Gandolfini asked for 1.5 million per episode, but settled for $950 000, which I reckon is cheap considering the income the series generates worldwide).

    So a lot more money was put on the table for all the actors and David Chase, and they all agreed to make 6 series in all (series 6 will have only 10 episodes though).

    I'm convinced it will stop after that, and much as I love it, I don't want it to “jump the shark”. Worse still would be a spin-off series, which I have heard rumours of.

    In any case, Tony will end up dead, so it'll have to finish (that's a guess, not a spoiler. Series 1 tagline "if one family doesn't kill him, the other one will").

    E4 have shown the previous season before the start of the last 2 i would be suprised if they changed.

    Hopefully if they do it will be 2/3 episodes a week as there are no signs of season 4 yet

    Anyone seen them all, bit light on the action this series its become much more baout the characters and their lives outised of the business(dont want to go into detail as to spoil it). I prefer watching them whacking guys and oggling birds down at the bing.

    It has been a bit light on action so far (though still as good drama-wise) but I think after watching episode 6 that it's about to step up a gear. I'll be watching episode 7 tonight:clap:

    ok calm down if you can garner any real information form that then you must be a genius. Its less than a episode synopsis on the Sky e.p.g or a tv guide would give. You can get more that by watching the "whats happening next" trailer or reading the season overview.

    Comments removed- I know its too late for some but from now i will take an omerta.

    Silverback- Go for it there alot of toornet istes out there, invset some bandwidth i.e. overnight in getting the decent bit rate version over 500mb. I download them on my laptop and use s-video and phono leads to watch it through my amp and tv and the qaulity is superb. I just wish the broadcasters here started using HD and broadcast in 5.1(although I hear sky will be doing so shortly for footie etc. like in europe). As i said this series has moved away from the action to develop characters but a not so good episode of The Sopranso is better than anything else on TV imo.
