Storyline

Christopher's girlfriend Adriana sees herself having a career in the music industry so a chance meeting with rap star Massive Genius seems to be the opportunity she's been looking for. Christopher is supportive but Genius has other goals in mind: he's out to get money from Hesh who he feels cheated an black artist 40 years ago and he definitely wants to get into Adriana's pants. Adriana has her eye on a group that she thinks is bound for stardom but no one else seems to agree. Tony meanwhile decides he wants to expand his circle of friends and focuses on his next door neighbor, Dr. Cusamano. The experience doesn't prove as interesting as he might have thought.

The Sopranos

A classic take on the most beloved genre which clearly suggests the crazy love it received from the audience but also left a long lasting impression on critics and awards shows where it took away five justified Golden Globes to its home. The Sopranos is a character driven series about a family that basically runs the whole town, just illegally.

The writing is adaptive, gripping and ground-breaking on terms of its structure that is so eerily easy as it slips away from the audience like some jelly; it is sweet, nutritious and immensely pleasing.

It is rich on technical aspects like its metaphorical cinematography, sharp sound effects and up beating songs along with palpable background score. The series is shot beautifully, each and every color sparks up neatly; especially the visuals that are taken in sunny days are amazing.

The performance by the cast is plausible since the effort is clearly visible but Gandolfini, Bracco, Falco and Imperioli stands alone due to their easiness in their acts. Gandolfini; at the heart of it, oozes power and the aegis nature which is what helps makers keep the audience rooting for the character.

The relationship between Gandolfini and Bracco is the highlight of the series due its fragile tone which is soothing to experience as it lights up the series in a whole new way.

Pragmatic conversations, three dimensional character, gut-wrenching politics, brawny dialogues and brilliant execution are the high points of the feature that makes it one of the best series.

Season 01

The first act is just preparation for the coming events that needs essential triggering and boy do they prepare for it, its brutal unexpected politics and morality conflicts are easily surpassed by its thought-provoking concepts that justifies each bold decisions.

A Hit Is A Hit

It is cunning and evolves in an even pace for the audience to settle in and inhale the tone and the sensitivity of the subjects and tension created in here that ends in an excellent note.
