18. Season 3 Premiere
Episode Title: "Mr. Ruggerio's Neighborhood" (Season 3, Episode 1)
Expectations were at an all-time high when The Sopranos stepped up for its third season in 2001. Like something out of a bad spy movie from the '70s (complete with a mash-up of the Peter Gunn theme), the FBI's hot to bug Tony's house and has been casing the comings and goings of its inhabitants for days. They've even come up with some cute little nicknames for each of family member in order to communicate internally: Bada Bing (Tony), Mrs. Bing (Carmela), Princess Bing (Meadow), and Baby Bing (AJ).
The agents stumble through their mission to get inside Tony's basement, and altogether it just makes for a silly sequence that feels out of place.
