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
Meet Tony Soprano. If one family doesn't kill him.... the other family will. (season 1)

Did You Know?
At least three prominent American film directors played characters in the series: Peter Bogdanovich
as psychologist Dr. Elliot Kupferberg in the only major recurring role, but Paul Mazursky
and Sydney Pollack
also appeared in a total of three episodes. Among actor/directors, Steve Buscemi
was not only a prominent cast member, featured in 13 episodes, but he also directed four other shows. And Jon Favreau
appears playing himself in Season 2, Episode 7. Yet, Martin Scorsese
--referred to in some episodes by Sopranos characters familiar with his work simply as 'Marty'--is played by a lookalike in the series' second episode when the director is supposed to have been spotted entering a club. See more
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
Carmine 'Little Carmine' Lupertazzi
The Soprano family has always been a little pushy.
Family? They're a glorified crew!
John 'Johnny Sack' Sacrimoni
Whatever they are, Carmine, they make us a lot of money.
