The Dreams

Watching the HBO TV drama series "The Sopranos" I noticed that capturing Tony Soprano's dreams were some of the very best episodes!
I have rarely came across a show or movie that captures the realistic scenes in our minds that happen like in when we actually dream. "The Sopranos" capture it perfectly AMAZINGLY like how I know my own dreams to unfold!

In those moments when we sleep our deeper revealing self is often discovered. In this show over the 6 seasons they captured and shared Tony Sopranos dreams with such honesty and real life feeling that I was left in awe as the viewer every time!
These episodes portrays his dreams in what he was facing or had to do when he woke up back to the real world.
Sometimes I wish I could stay in my own dreams when they are so clearly understood to me after I wake up, Tony himself in the show would lay there after a crazy connecting dream to the stresses in his life. The episode in last season when he falls into a coma is maybe the most powerful dream translation I have ever seen in a drama!
I still can remember the first time I watched it because the scenes were so powerful, amazingly well written and played out...on March 26, 2006 this certain episode played on HBO called "Mayham" will always stay with me for I cried while watching this importance of fighting to live, often we think death will happen to us without knowing yet every so often our spirit wants to fight back, that dream scene for Tony Soprano with the dark trees moving in the wind, the doubt he feels in letting go and his little girl's voice faintly heared will always be the most inspiring scene capturing the soul's journey in choosing life or death, for me this was a spectacular episode! If I could spend time writing about each episode I would! For they are ALL loaded with material, emotions and true to form life lessons.....  

"Let me tell ya something. Nowadays, everybody's gotta go to shrinks, and counselors, and go on "Sally Jessy Raphael" and talk about their problems. What happened to Gary Cooper? The strong, silent type. That was an American. He wasn't in touch with his feelings. He just did what he had to do. See, what they didn't know was once they got Gary Cooper in touch with his feelings that they wouldn't be able to shut him up! And then it's dysfunction this, and dysfunction that, and dysfunction vaffancul!" -Tony Soprano
