Storyline

Johnny Sack's daughter Allegra is getting married and he gets released for 6 hours under the supervision of two Federal Marshals to attend. It's a happy day for himself and his wife though he still has time to get a little work done. Johnny wants Tony to eliminate someone for him and Tony reluctantly agrees. He tells Christopher to bring in two men from Sicily to do the job. The Marshals are pretty strict with Johnny about leaving on time and when they drag him away before his daughter and her new husband leave the reception he breaks down and cries. Phil Leotardo describes him as a weakling. Tony has been worrying about how his own men perceive him and decides it's time to remind them that his recent surgery hasn't made him any less of a man. Two hoods making a collection in a gay bar see Vito dancing with another man and wearing his leathers. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Phil Leotardo: [after Johnny Sack bursts into tears after being arrested by the FBI in front of everyone] I'll tell you this, my estimation about John Sacrimoni as a man, just fucking plummeted.
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: Give him a break, will ya? It's an emotional day.

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.

Mr. And Mrs. John Sacrimoni Request

Literally, getting back in the ring, Gandolfini oozes power as a vulnerable middle aged man whose fighting spirit is what gets him going and then to release personal issues and public humiliations within a punch, has got to be a cathartic experience.
