    I'm surprised this hasn't attracted more attention. It was dropped at the end of a Labor Day New York Times story on Band of Brothers.

    It is not normal "TV" so to speak; if I wanted run of the mill, I could expect it TV, I've got plenty of choices. If it's taking him time to map out what he wants to do for the next two seasons, and HBO is willing to give him money to do it, I can wait for it [​IMG]

    Okay, they went from "It's not TV, it's HBO" to emulating network programming.
    I like HBO because they run against the grain of network t.v., in both content and scheduling. I know they've really put a lot of force into advertising on both cable and network (i.e. Band of Brothers, Sopranos), but shaping their schedules using the network mold is... well, not HBO.
    They better have a kick ass shows to follow-up Sopranos, SatC, 6FU, and OZ if they want to go head-on with the big three.
    Or is six now?

    What is the reason for the start of season 4 being pushed back five months? Is it because HBO wants The Sopranos to go head-to-head with other network shows? Or is it because David Chase needs more time to write?

    If it is for the latter, that's fine with me. No use sacrificing quality. If it's for the former, why? This show is going to get great ratings no matter what.

    Ah, good. This means I don't need HBO for almost a full year. That's about $90 in programming I get to save.
