You could argue that this show about a mobster in therapy started the Golden Age of Television that we are currently living in - it certainly upped HBO's offerings

Even better than the first time: rewatched this after 15 years for the acting (Gandolfini was marvelous), the writing (the pilot episode is a classic), the ironies. . .

I really don't understand why this series is so beloved. I consider it to be one of the most over-rated of all time. Most of the characters are are either excruciatingly stupid, ridiculously bi-polar, or insultingly Jersey-Italian. I am on season 3 and there have already been four dream sequences - talk about lazy writing. I cringe whenever the mother, Livia, is on camera moaning with her super annoying martyr complex. The subplots with Christopher are beyond boring. Several conversations are repeated. Some type of Italian food with a silly name is referenced every 15 seconds. AND there is surprisingly little action. All this is supposed to make us feel sorry for a bunch of people that lie, cheat, steal, and murder as a way of life. As with all mob related media this really shows Italians in a bad light yet (as a general rule) they love and gravitate to this genre. You would think modern Italians would desire to move on from these comical bad guy stereotypes.

I never watched the show while it was on HBO. I really enjoyed it. It's funny, dramatic and refreshing. I already put a hold on Season 2.

Even though it's been 15 years since season 1 It's truly great drama. The show just keeps your attention because you never know what will happen or how characters will react. I highly recommend it for people who don't have weak stomachs.

This season's set I found dreadfully boring. I kept asking myself each episode whether it was over yet, is it over yet?

i had heard several reviews and references to this show over the years, but i never got around to watching it.

i was impressed with season one's development and finale, and so placed holds on seasons two through six. however, toward the end of season two i could tell the writers were blocked or stalling.

now i'm three episodes into season four and the plot seems mostly dead. i find myself constantly fast-forwarding. i've cancelled my holds on seasons five and six.
