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

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 »

Quite simply, the greatest television show of all time
18 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE SOPRANOS (1999-2007)

Number 1 - Television Show of all Time

Everyone thought this would be a stupid thing that wouldn't go past a pilot episode. The Sopranos has become a cultural phenomenon and universally agreed as one of the greatest television shows of all time.

James Gandolfini plays the enigmatic New Jersey crime boss, Tony Soprano, accompanied by a stellar cast. Edie Falco is superb as the worrying, loving upper-middle class mother; Tony Sirico is tremendous as a superstitious, greying consiglieri who is often very funny.

While the show has often been criticised for the negative stereotype of Italian-Americans as mafiosi, and to an extent this is undeniable, I can see so many positives from the show. The portrayal of strong family values, friendships, love and compassion; could this be present in a coarse television show about gangsters? Yes. Furthermore, other burning issues are discussed such as terrorism, social inequality and injustice, homosexuality, drugs etc. This is no shallow, dull show about tough guys and violence. It has so much more. Many of the issues we see on the show are very real.

The writing which has been pretty much great has infused so successfully current issues and managed to imbred them within the characters' lives, which makes the whole thing more interesting.

Credit must go to David Chase who has created an excellent television treasure and to James Gandolfini, for envisioning, television's most complex and enigmatic character.

Simply exceptional.

10/10
