Storyline

With Brendan dead, Christopher isn't sure exactly who is after him. When he realizes it was Uncle Junior, he's prepared to start a war. Tony meets his uncle but with Jackie Aprile on his last legs, there is little room for compromise. When Jackie dies, the capos want Tony to take over but he has another idea, one that he thinks will still leave him in charge. At school, AJ has a strange encounter with a classmate. His sister Meadow clues him in to exactly what their father does for a living. Tony begins to have erotic dreams about his psychiatrist, Dr. Melfi, and gets a broken down cop on the take to keep tabs on her. He oversteps, just a little. Written by garykmcd

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.

Meadowlands

An emotional meltdown that leads into various stages and outcomes of each characters that meets at a rendezvous point narrowing it down to a mutual theme among all of it.
