Excellent Price for an AMAZING Show!

Watch all episodes of writer-producer-director David Chase's extraordinary US television series. The Sopranos is nominally an urban gangster drama, but its true impact strikes closer to home, chronicling a dysfunctional, suburban family in bold relief. And for protagonist Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), there's the added complexity posed by heading twin families, his collegial mob clan and his own, nouveau riche brood.

The series' first season was built around what Tony learns when, whipsawed between those two worlds, he finds himself plunged into depression and seeks psychotherapy--a gesture at odds with his mid-level machismo, yet instantly recognizable as a modern emotional test. With analysis built into the very spine of the show's elaborate episodic structure, creator Chase and his formidable team of directors, writers and actors weave an unpredictable series of parallel and intersecting plot arcs that twist from tragedy to farce to social realism throughout six spellbinding series. While created for a smaller screen, they enjoy a far larger canvas than a single movie would afford, and the results, like the very best episodic television, attain a richness and scope far closer to a novel than movies normally get. Alternately seductive, exasperated, fearful, and murderous, James Gandolfini's Tony is utterly convincing, even when executing brutal shifts between domestic comedy and dramatic violence

That's because it went oos quickly.

Excellent show, such a shame the final episode ended the way it did, finishing in mid-sent.........

I'm prepared to do just that.

asda site = out of stock!

I've just finished watching them for the first time, got the same set from HMV for 50 quid.

It was good but nowhere near as good as the hype suggests imho.

Blasphemer!!

Like Bleary123, I just finished the show for the first time a few days ago and have to say it was amazing. Some seasons were better than others and the finale may frustrate some but there is no denying how good a series it was. It had great acting, some good old fashioned gangster violence and was even quite funny at times. For anyone on the fence, definitely check out this great show.

Does anyone know whats happening with a bluray release for this? Keep putting it off but really want to see them again.

Excellent post for all those who haven't yet seen it, nice one.

Odd that season one is on BR, but none of the others. Better off waiting I think.

I'm just pulling your leg. Anyone with access to the internet can find people saying the ending was disappointing. I personally understood it (makes even more sense after reading a few articles) and fully understand David Chase's decision to do it the way he did. He claims he always had that exact ending in mind, I say kudos to him for sticking to it.

When I watched the final show on Channel 4, I would say that the ending was disappointing. As one of the best TV shows of all time it definitely deserved better and I think the vast majority of Sopranos fans would agree.

I can't believe it, Gandolfini dead at 51! Damn!
