 The Sopranos   July 7, 2013   Report Abuse
By PinkCoconuts   This is my only review so far.
This will be hard to do in 500 words or less. This cutting edge drama was on HBO from '99 to 2007, and was a major success. There hasn't been another show like it since, and I don't think there ever will be. Definetly a one of a kind. The Sopranos were an Italian-American family of four living in New Jersey. The father/husband (James Gandolfini RIP) was a mob leader and all around bad ass. He was someone you could relate to, and someone you couldn't. Over the course of the series, he whacks alot of people, including family and friends, for the sake of the mafia. He regularly sees a therapist - whom he fantasizes about - takes Prozac, and literally does cheat on his wife, Carmella (Edie Falco). The Sopranos also have two children, Meadow (Jamie Lynn Singler) and AJ (Robert Iler). Many memorable characters, and storylines. If you haven't yet experienced The Sopranos, you are definetly missing out!

 Amazing series   July 7, 2013   Report Abuse
By grant   This is my only review so far.
RIP Tony

A few hundred words does not do justice to this monumental achievement. An entire piece could be written about the show's black comedy, culinary artistry, or exploration of familial roles. The Sopranos routinely tackled difficult subjects like caring for the elderly, Italian-American defamation, religion, homosexuality, terrorism and the many flaws in the federal government. Wrapped together with a soundtrack that's one part classic rock and one part 1960s Las Vegas, the Sopranos achieved the nearly impossible feat of being both the most entertaining/watchable show from its era and also the one that provided the most insight into the human condition and experience. Yes, seeing the loves, hates, desires and deaths of these characters made for great television and very exciting Sunday nights, but the discussions sparked from these 86 works of art will be continued on message boards and in classrooms long after we are all gone.
