| 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.

Trivia

At least three prominent American movie directors played characters in the series: Peter Bogdanovich as psychologist Dr. Elliot Kupferberg in the only major recurring role, but Paul Mazursky and Sydney Pollack also appeared in a total of three episodes. Amongst actors/directors, Steve Buscemi was not only a prominent cast member, featured in thirteen episodes, but he also directed four other shows. Jon Favreau appeared playing himself in season two, episode seven, "D-Girl". However, Martin Scorsese, referred to in some episodes by Sopranos characters familiar with his work simply as "Marty", was played by a look-a-like in season one, episode two, "46 Long", when Scorsese is supposed to have been spotted entering a club.


Quotes

Adriana La Cerva: They broke my fuckin' chair.


Goofs

In many instances, characters are seen firing semi-automatic pistols (most commonly Beretta 92s). These weapons are clearly stage guns, as the pistols are seen firing multiple rounds with no movement of the weapons' slides.


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.
