| Television. Redefined.
What can you possibly say about a show of this magnitude? "The Sopranos" has literally redefined television as we know it. It has broken all rules, and set new standards for television excellence. Everything is flawless, the writing, directing, and for me, most of all, the acting. Watching this show you'll find yourself realizing that these characters are NOT real. The acting tricks you into thinking there is a real Tony Soprano, or any character. This show is also very versatile. Some people don't watch the show because it's violent, it's not all about the violence, it's about business, family, and many deeper things that all depend on what you, as a fan see. For me, I don't like when people refer to the show, a show about the Mafia. For me, it's a show about family. A family who, through generations, happen to be apart of the mob. Overall this is a masterpiece of a show. This is what television should be. Right here. Complex characters from stunning acting, magnificent story lines from brilliant writing, and what do you get when you mix these ingredients together? A show that defines excellence, and dares to be different.

Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: The belt was his favorite child development tool.


Goofs

Many of the characters are shown traveling relatively to areas throughout the NYC/NJ area in minutes which are actually very far distances from one another.

The Satriale's Pork Store location for example is in Kearny, NJ which is roughly 25 miles from Tony Soprano's West Caldwell home. And Bada-Bing!, the family's alternate headquarters is roughly 15 miles away, although it would take 40 minutes to get there on a good day.


Alternate Versions

In Canada, the CTV network shown the first season uncut during Fall 2000. But because the producers of The Sopranos did not secure international rights to some music played in the background, other music was used instead.
