Some ISPs are blocking all BitTorrent traffic, because BitTorrent can be used to share files in a piratical way.

Chris Evans, actor

'The Sopranos,' for instance, is arguably the best cable show of all time. They could have made a movie, but that show ended so perfectly, it would almost be a disadvantage to make a movie like that. Then again, if you made a 'Sopranos' movie, people would be lined around the block to go see it.
