The Slice

One danger of unstructured time off

That would be coming in after getting some exercise and rediscovering daytime TV.

"The Sopranos" on A&E, to be precise.

Sure, it seemed like cleaning up the mob drama's language for basic cable would ruin the classic HBO show. Remember the sanitized version of "Glengarry Glen Ross"? That was a joke.

Who could forget Alec Baldwin's absurdly softened motivational talk. "What's my name? Forget you! That's my name."

But it turns out "The Sopranos" is so good that you can still get caught up in it, even with the characters saying "freakin' " every 30 seconds. Especially if you happen on to an early season you can't remember clearly.

Then the key is to get up and get back in motion before "Perry Mason" comes on.
