    Monday Night Television

    Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

    Anthony Neste/HBO

    The Sopranos 8 p.m., HBO Signature

    The reairing of this series is, of course, filled with memorable hours including this first season finale. Tony (James Gandolfini, pictured) learns that his mother tried to have him killed, and we later get to see her laughing at him in a creepy-funny way with her mouth covered by an oxygen mask. I get a special kick out of the story line involving the Father Phil Intintola, whose name has a comic echo of Rin Tin Tin. In this episode, Carmela finally realizes that he exploits needy women, and she tells him so. Edie Falco and Paul Schulze are working together again on “Nurse Jackie,” by the way, as former lovers and current friends.

    The Wizard of Oz 8 p.m., TCM


    This is a video for “The Dark Side of the Moon.” Kidding (unless you are on drugs)! The Judy Garland movie is also a palate cleanser for those who submitted themselves to the emotionally hollow “Oz the Great and Powerful.” Some of the 1939 movie’s effects are cheap by our standards, but the new movie is cheesy on a more intense digital level.
