Storyline

After Tony Blundetto's good friend Angelo Garepe is killed by Phil Leotardo in retaliation for the killing of Joe Peeps, Tony B. sets off to get his revenge. He and the older Angelo had become good friends in prison with the older mobster becoming something of a father figure to him. Tony B. kills Phil Leotardo's kid brother Billy and then goes on the run. Tired of it all and realizing that they're on the verge of an all-out war, Tony goes into New York City and books himself into the Plaza. There he has a strange dream, one that includes the living, the dead and even Annette Bening. It all helps him to decide that the time has come to eliminate his favorite cousin. Written by garykmcd

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.

The Test Dream

Whilst creating a chapter like such that revolves entirely upon a self-created maze is often easily gripping but to makes finite sense in its infiniteness is the real challenge, and they hold up to their own test.
