Trivia

For the second season in a row, the series ends with a "made" guy who cooperated with the FBI, being told to "have a seat" by one of Tony's men moments before they are killed. Silvio says it to Big Pussy when they first go below deck on the boat in this episode, and is subsequently whacked by Tony, Paulie, and Silvio. Last season, in "I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano" [S1 E13], Christopher says it to Jimmy Altieri in the hotel room before Silvio shoots him from behind. See more »

Quotes

Salvatore 'Big Pussy' Bompensiero: We got any good tequila? You know that acupuncturist down in Puerto Rico? 26... Tell you, this broad, her ass was the second coming. Never wore panties. Brushed her teeth with this shit. Every night she'd drink me under the fucking table. And I'd eat her out when I was down there.
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: Hey, Puss. Did she even really exist?

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 02

Unlike the first one, the second act is weaved to run for a longer time, it adds up few characters and shakes the old ones and milks out the apt and diverse than the previous one which shows us, the boldness and maturity of the makers to visit such newer territories.

Funhouse

The first half is more of a delusional act that runs on the merit of nothing but performance whilst the second one kicks in that spirals out the politics and revenge based decisions, all in all offering the best closure to its second act with a calm and mature tone.
