Storyline

Johnny Sack is in prison awaiting his trial and trying to run his crime family through Phil Leotardo. Hesh's son-in-law is badly beaten by some of Phil's men who thought he was encroaching on their territory. Hesh demands compensation. One of Tony's good earners, Gene Pontecorvo, inherits $2 million from an old aunt and asks Tony for permission to retire. Tony's obviously cool to the request and says he'll think about. When Syl tells him it can't be done, Gene feels trapped and can see only one way out. Ray Curto dies without anyone knowing that he was an informant for the FBI. Carmela's house project isn't going too well after her father uses sub-grade material and an inspector issue a stop-work order. Uncle Junior's dementia is getting worse and when his nurse has to leave unexpectedly, Tony finds himself as the only one available to sit with him. It's a decision that may prove deadly.

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 06

This sixth and final chapter is way too mature and intelligent even for its own standards and with manipulative bluffs and characters being played like puppets, the writers, the makers and the actors are literally giving their all in.

To give a nail-biting tensed environment throughout the course of the episode where it basically is just taking its first step, proves how fine the polishing of the writing is, and addition to that add more characters and handle accordingly is just bizarrely genius.
