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 David Fowler

Did You Know?


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 that 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.

The layout of the windows in Dr. Melfi's inner room/office is illogical. That is, in an early episode, we see Tony dodge Silvio in the hallway of Melfi's office building. It appears to be a typical medical plaza building with multiple physician's offices on that hallway (e.g. the dentist Silvio was visiting, the office into which Tony ducked, and Dr. Melfi's office which we also see.) We see Melfi's office here in the middle of the hallway, not on the corner of the building. Therefore, the two sets of windows in Melfi's inner office are illogical. The windows in front of Tony (behind Melfi) make sense, as they are in a straight line from the hallway. However, the windows to Tony's right are not possible, as they would be looking into the office of the neighboring physician's office on the hallway. See more »


Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: Vito, you did tell the police you didn't know who did this, right?
Vito Spatafore: Please. I may be distressed, but I know how to keep my mouth shut.
Ralph Cifaretto: Unless there's a big tuna sandwich around!

The Best Show on TV Now
31 January 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Sopranos is a terrific show. It may be violent, racist, sexist, and bad to the bone, it is also funny, melodramatic and cool. The characters are very well done and the acting is some of the best I've seen in years. It is also pretty keen for creator David Chase to pick Northern New Jersey as the set piece for his opus of crime life. I have liked this show alot since it aired on HBO in January of last year and I will keep on watching it because of the intrigue and drama.
