Storyline

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

Trivia

Lorraine Bracco was originally asked to play the role of Carmela Soprano, but she felt that the part was too similar to her character in Goodfellas (1990). She decided the role of Dr. Melfi would be more challenging. See more »

Goofs

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 »

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.
