Turtle's onto his business, Johnny's got a TV show specifically for him, Eric's moved on and is in a battle to assume control of the agency owned by his fiance's godfathter, and even Billy Walsh is clean, productive and creative. All of these guys from Season One, except Vince, have all matured and moved well beyond their childhood symbiotic relationship.
Without these guys, Vince is a mess. He's not an adult capable of making adult decisions on his own. He's living in a fantasy world.
And Ari is paying dearly for his childish behavior as well. He lost out on the NFL and may have lost his wife in the process.
I think the final six episodes have the potential to be very, very good. But, I still think a movie would be years off, if ever. I just can't see many people flocking to see these people in 90 minute film.
Thats a very good post. I agree 100%. Its almost what he was trying to do in season 6, but season 6 sucked. Seems like he came bacck to the same idea but made it better. If you remember in season 6, Vince was alone all the time because everyone else was off doing stuff.
