Finished watching The Sopranos the other day. I really enjoyed this series. Based upon my initial impression (“mobsters”/”mafia”) I was expecting the show to be more about crime, murder, etc. (sort of the hole that Oz got sucked in to) where it was much introspective (especially with regards to the protagonist, Tony Soprano). Of course all the introspection in the world (or, at least, over the course of the 6 seasons of the show) did little to abate his destructive tendencies. If there was ever a show that was going to be littered with dream sequences and sit-downs with psychologists I wouldn’t have guessed that this show would be it.
Overall I’d absolutely recommend the show to others - the vast majority of episodes were excellent (something like a 3:1 ratio of good to ‘ok’ episodes).
This is another case where watching the show rapidly on DVD is likely to have altered my perception of the show. I feel bad for those who had to waits years inbetween seasons - I can only imagine how the quality of the viewing experience must’ve diminished over those periods of time.
