Storyline

Adriana is increasingly worried about Christopher. He and others are conducting more and more of their business at the club and sometimes, she can't even get in to use her office. Christopher's heroin habit seems to be getting worse. Then of course she has the FBI on her back for more information. They're calling her to meetings and tell her a few home truths. They also want her to get more information on Tony. Janice decides that widower Bobby Bacala needs taking care of and she pushes her way into his house and his family. Bobby is inconsolable however and is still blaming himself for his wife's death. There's a bit of chill in the air when Tony refuses to set up an insurance trust that Carmela's cousin Brian recommends. Tony is far more interested in Ralph's investment, a racehorse by the name of Pie-O-My, especially after the horse wins a race at 8-1. At his trial, Uncle Junior is upset over the courtroom artist's rendition of him. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Uncle Junior turns off the TV, the reflection on the TV should have been him sitting on the couch with no windows behind him. Instead, the couch was empty with a window on both sides of the couch. See more »

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 04

This fourth act is more professional and business than personal and yet it is more emotionally competent, if not among the best. But with new additions of characters and expected threat, it has got the right amount of crispiness as much as it is husky.

Pie-O-My

Drunk in its emotional conflicts, it demands viewers' attention and creates the anticipated genuine impact whose credit goes to Gandolfini's stellar performance, while the rest of the act is set upon backstage more than it usually does.
