Storyline

Several old-time mobsters are coming out of prison soon having completed their sentences. Tony is particularly looking forward to seeing his cousin Tony Blundetto, who in their youth was like a brother to him. Also being released is Feech La Manna who is looking to start earning again after being away for 20 years. Chris and Paulie are constantly arguing. Paulie feels that the young Chris doesn't pay him enough respect but Chris is frustrated by the rules that always put him at the bottom of the ladder. He's particularly tired of always having to pick up the dinner tab. Tony and Carmela are still separated but he's sent someone around to stand guard after he learns there was a bear in the backyard. Tony hasn't see Dr. Melfi for some and decides once again to try and pursue a romance with her. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Benny/Little Paulie are guarding the backyard, the weapon they are armed with is a Norinco 84s (.223) AK-47, as evident by the straight magazine. Later when Tony tells Benny he can leave for the night, and he will take over, Tony walks to the table to retrieve the weapon and it is still a Norinco 84s. When he lights up his cigar outside and lifts the weapon, it changes to a Norinco 56s (7.62x39). This is evident by the curve of the magazine. See more »

Quotes

Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: [has invited Dr. Melfi to go to Bermuda with him] Come on, Doc. I'm breaking out the big guns here. You're turning me into half a stalker.
Dr. Jennifer Melfi: Listen, Anthony. I'm not going to go out with you, and it's not because you're unattractive or I don't think I would have a good time. It's just something I'm not going to do. I would like you to respect my decision, and just try to feel that I know what's right for me. Okay?
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: It's not just the doctor-patient ethics thing, is it?
Dr. Jennifer Melfi: I want to preserve the option ...

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 05

The fifth act brings back the family drama and a bit mature ethereal morale conflicts that is sort of surprising and brilliant of them to pull it off considering the higher and lethal stakes that it usually fiddles with and it also joins in the previous threats and newer characters.

Two Tonys

A sensational start for the season with a poetic them that soars through Gandolfini's character and not just his, but the side plot too fiddles with the mannerism of the emotions that a conflict goes through, what a masterstroke.
