The Sopranos: The Complete Series
HBO's hit series 'The Sopranos' takes a realistic, darkly humorous look at members of a suburban New Jersey family, whose patriarch Tony Soprano happens to be a mob boss. James Gandolfini stars.


I realize I’m pretty late getting to the party weighing in on “The Sopranos”. However, having recently gotten around to watching the entire series I’ll throw in my two-cents. There’s not really any room for debate that this show completely earns all of the many accolades and awards it’s received.

Casting is incredibly perfect; every single player brings an authentic feeling to their role and you really buy into these folks as real people. The late James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano is a force of nature who is completely invested in his character. At first glance he just looks like some fat guy but after one episode you quickly understand why he’s the boss who is feared and respected. Hard to believe he’s no longer with us. The two women in his life; wife Carmela played by Edie Falco and Dr. Jennifer Melfi played by Lorraine Bracco make an interesting contrast. The concept of a tough mob boss who’s got anxiety issues and needs psychotherapy is brilliant.

Writing is flawless, the dialog has the unmistakable stamp of reality to it that it’s almost as if you’re watching a documentary. Sets and locations are superb. Things get a little too homicidal the last half of Season 5 and through both parts of Season 6 and cast members start dropping like flies. The controversial ending is indeed a disappointment and it’s clear why so many fans were unsatisfied. Just recently internet gossip suggested show creator David Chase is actually considering a prequel for the “Sopranos”; could be an instant classic.
I recently decided to watch the whole Sopranos series from start to finish. I loved every minute of it! It's been a while since I've watched it so I felt like I was watching it again for the first time. James Gandolfini is an incredible actor. This time around watching it was bittersweet knowing that he passed away. He's the glue that holds this whole show together. All the other actors in this show are superb! In a nutshell, this is a show about the rise and fall of a sociopath: Tony Soprano. Yes that's right a sociopath. This show is not for kids or the weak hearted. It is not politically correct. I've been a fan of gangster movies since Public Enemy with James Cagney to Goodfellas. So, this show was right up my alley. If you are a fan of this genre this show is for you. Thanks Amazon for streaming the whole series. The picture quality was excellent! It looked better then the DVD version.
