An innovative look at the life of fictional Mafia Capo Tony Soprano, this serial is presented largely first person, but additional perspective is conveyed by the intimate conversations Tony has with his psychotherapist. We see Tony at work, at home, and in therapy. Moments of black comedy intersperse this aggressive, adult drama, with adult language, and extreme violence. Written by
Tony's not like other fathers. Tony is a mob boss. (season 1)

The series started as a movie pitch. David Chase
initially wanted his creation to be a film, and the original scripts that he wrote were for a feature-length production about a mobster who went to visit a psychiatrist. These themes were eventually carried over into the show, of course, mainly because Chase's manager believed that the characters were so well-written that they deserved the extensive time that they would be granted in a television serial.

In many instances, characters are seen firing semi-automatic pistols (most commonly Beretta 92s).
These weapons are clearly stage guns, as the pistols are seen firing multiple rounds with no movement of the weapons' slides. See more
