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
The legacy lives on. (syndication)

Did You Know?
The concept of family is an essential ingredient of this series about La Cosa Nostra ("This Thing of Ours"), a fact also reflected in the show's production. Besides the LuPone and LaPaglia connections mentioned above, David Chase cast his daughter Michele DeCesare
in six episodes as Meadow's friend, Hunter. Even more familial is the casting of real-life husband & wife Steven Van Zandt
and Maureen Van Zandt
as Silvio and Gabriella Dante. As well, on the series' production team, longtime writer/producers Robin Green
and Mitchell Burgess
are a married couple. In addition, co-star Lorraine Bracco
's sister Elizabeth Bracco
appears as Marie Spatafore in eight episodes. Dominic Chianese Jr.
, son of the actor portraying Uncle Junior, appears in three final-season shows as a soldier in the Lupertazzi crime family. Then there's Michael Buscemi
, brother of the noted director and cast member Steve Buscemi
, who shows up early on in the series' fourth episode. Finally, Joyce Van Patten
, half-sister of The Sopranos
(1999) veteran director Timothy Van Patten
, appears in one episode in Season 4...while his daughter, young Grace Van Patten
, appears twice in the final season. See more
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
