Trivia

When Aaron visits Tony in his ICU room, accompanied by Pastor Bob, he is wearing a shirt bearing the name of Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman who, being in a persistent vegetative state, was a center of controversy in the late 1990s and early 2000s, in regards to sustaining her life through artificial means.

Goofs

After Paulie stops paying for Nucci's nursing home expenses, she tells him the nursing home people have been very nice and his brother is trying to "work out an arrangement", this is a highly exaggerated statement. Given the health care situation in America, it's simple: if she can't find a way to pay the full amount every month and on time, she would be evicted. There is no other "arrangement." 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 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.

The Fleshy Part Of The Thigh

This professional episode that focuses more on the business is obliged of following few familiar structures no matter how different the outcome and on the other hand it also has few revelations whose repercussions helps on spicing up this mechanical act.
