Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
Having proven itself to be both smarter than the average Mafia story and better than a Freud-by-the-numbers family drama, the second season of HBO's Emmy-winning gangster soap opera, The Sopranos, continued to break new ground. For the most part, things pick up where they left off in Season 1 for Tony Soprano James Gandolfini. Heavy-hitting characters such as Tony's mother, Livia Nancy Marchand, and Uncle Junior Dominic Chianese move into the background to make room for denser ensemble conflict and, in Marchand's case, to give the actress a rest during her battle with cancer which eventually took her life after production wrapped. A handful of new antagonists are introduced, the most treacherous of whom is Richie Aprile David Proval, the embittered brother of former boss Jackie Aprile and Tony's No. 1 rival. Tony's once-estranged sister, Janice Aida Turturro, returns to New Jersey, motivated by...who knows? Dr. Melfi Lorraine Bracco also gets more of the spotlight, boosting her presence from mere sounding board to that of a well-developed character. Causing further agita for Tony are the usual family and work crises, most of which are shadowed by the return of his close friend and colleague in crime, Pussy Bonpensiero Vincent Pastore -- who secretly wears a wire for the F.B.I. This tense story line fuels the entire season, climaxing in an emotional finale reminiscent of The Godfather: Part II. These highlights only scratch the surface, however, as The Sopranos tries to best itself after an almost mythical first-season success; supporting characters Carmela Edie Falco, Meadow Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Anthony, Jr. Robert Iler, Christopher Michael Imperioli, Paulie Tony Sirico, and the rest are also given their due focus. The four-DVD set affords director commentaries for several episodes, two featurettes, and much more.
Entertainment Weekly
As usual, crack character acting abounds, in Alicia Witt's turn as a skin-deep film executive, Peter Bogdanovich's shrink's shrink, and 'The X-Files' star Robert Patrick's arc as a ''happy wanderer'' with a gambling problem. Mike Flaherty

    A must have for the Sopranos Fan

    This series is well written, well acted and lives up to the Soprano reputation. If you want to have the entire series at home, this is a must have.

    SECOND COURSE

    After the intensity of the first season, you wonder when the show is going to crash. It doesn't. There are a few clunkers in the second season (Episode 9: From Where to Eternity, the most noticeable), but the arrival of Richie Aprile (David Proval) and Episodes 6 (THE HAPPY WANDERER), 8 (FULL LEATHER JACKET) and the David Lynch-esque finale smooth it over. Where else can you hear Sinatra sing ''Baubles Bangles and Beads''?

    Brilliant Show

    This is a brilliant series. I am rivited. I have watched many, many mob stories, but this is so real, you feel the Sopranos are next door. You fear it and you hope for it.

    Best Show On Television...EVER!

    There will never be another show like this, no matter what anyone tries in the future. Everything from the stories, the acting, the drama, the comedy, even the violence that just happens to make everything in it seem that much more real. Anyone who loves mafia related stories or just family drama stories should buy this. Especially if you have a DVD player. And don't forget the first season.
