604: The Fleshy Part of the Thigh with Katrina Davis



Sometimes I go about in pity for myself, and all the while a great pod carries myself gun

 

Writer and comedian Katrina Davis comes to us on the day of our 69th podcast to join Matt & Vince for a conversation about The Sopranos season 6 episode 4, “Fleshy Part of the Thigh.” Tony’s on the mend and there’s a lot going on in his hospital.

 

Hal Halbrook plays, as Katrina notes, a Jack Kerouac / Mark Twain hybrid-looking physicist who watches a boxing match with Tony and a rapper recovering from multiple gunshot wounds. Treach from Naughty By Nature plays a guy named Marvin, who is hanging out at the same hospital, wishing he could get shot to boost his rap career. In the earlier seasons, The Sopranos had no idea how to write black characters, but by the sixth season, they might be even worse. Marvin pays Bobby to shoot him. He pays an Italian guy to help him with his career by shooting him. Marvin might be the dumbest character in the whole series and there are some real ding dongs on this show.

 

At the risk of overselling it, this week’s Bada-B story was so good it made Katrina say “Matthew, you did not!” So stick around for the full version at the end of the episode.
