I just assumed he suffered from hereditary mental illness like his dad and his dad's family. Wouldn't have mattered what they did, it was his nature - it wasn't Meadows nature hence she turned out fine even though they nurtured her the same way.Thanks for posting. I’m on my third or fourth rewatch and really enjoying watching an episode and then reading the write-up. I did the same thing a couple years ago, but with the AV Club. I think this website is better. Some of his insights are brilliant.
One thing I haven’t seen written about much is what went wrong with AJ. Did Carmela coddle him too much? I think Tony said that in one episode. Neither knew how to punish him, they would always cave in and give him what he wanted. But they did the same thing with Meadow and she turned out OK. Would he have benefitted from going to military school, like Tony wanted? Or am I overthinking it and he was just an a-hole?
