That great Sopranos cover shot, Josh Wolk’s marvelous ”Burying The Sopranos” recap, and family portraits of Tony, Carmela & Co. — plus Lisa Schwarzbaum’s fabulous review of the series — all add up to the best-ever issue! Oh, did I mention The Sopranos is my favorite drama?!
I’m excited to see how The Sopranos ends, but I hope Tony survives — so we can see him again, hopefully on the big screen! Bye for now to the greatest show ever made — may you go out with a bang.
Tina Fey is a brilliant writer-actress, and 30 Rock…well, rocks! Thanks for recognizing Fey (”One Fine Fey”) and her achievements.
Being the same age as Chris Nashawaty might be the reason I identified with his musings on ’80s teen comedies. ”Virgin Territory” brought back fun memories of the schemes my friends and I hatched to get into the theater to see these films. Kids today have it easy. How much plotting goes into clicking a mouse?
If Fast Times at Ridgemont High was the 1980s’ Citizen Kane, (for) surely Valley Girl would have to be its Gone With the Wind, right?

I wanted to praise Chris Nashawaty on ”Virgin Territory,” his article about the rise of teen sex comedies. It was fresh, fun, and surprisingly candid. I like the prospect of more first-person essays in which EW writers share how pop culture has shaped who they are. I look forward to the next one.
OBSESSIVE FAN OF THE WEEK!
Christine Rinto of Cleveland is hungry like the wolf in her quest to be our Duran Duran OFOTW. So much so that she confesses, ”The only reason I want a husband is so I can spawn and name her Saffron [after Simon Le Bon’s daughter].” Christine insists Duran Duran is ”the bestest Armani-suit-wearing, eyeliner-adorned, chiseled-cheekboned, yacht-sailing, bubbly-swigging band in the world.” Who are we to disagree disagree?
