Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Some hardcore Sopranos fans thought that the 2004 season represented a fall-off in the series' quality, but in revisiting these 13 episodes we didn't detect any precipitous decline. On balance it's a fascinating group of shows, notable for the introduction of Steve Buscemi as Tony's recently paroled cousin Tony Blundetto in "Rat Pack," and Robert Loggia as Feech La Manna in "Two Tonys," a character previously referred to but not seen until this year. The principal plot thread underpinning Season 5 is the steadily building conflict between ambitious Johnny Sack (Vincent Curatola) and Little Carmine (Ray Abruzzo) following the death of Carmine (Tony Lip) -- a conflict Tony (James Gandolfini) will eventually have to deal with. Now separated from Carmela (Edie Falco), Tony develops a romantic interest in his therapist, Dr. Melfi (Lorraine Bracco), but you can bet more pressing matters will keep that relationship from maturing. Our favorite episode on the year is the offbeat "Test Dream," which finds Tony having a nightmare peopled with previous victims (and former show regulars, including Joe Pantoliano, Vincent Pastore, and Annabella Sciorra). While it may not compare with the very best of this fine David Chase series, Season 5 certainly stands head and shoulders above the average network fare.

The Sopranos - Season 5 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is an intersting season of 'The Sopranos' mixing the violence of seasons two and three and the dialogue of seasons one and four. After less than flattering reviews of the fourth season; season five returns with a slew of new characters that the writers love 'taking' out. Also many famous celebrities make appearences. Not as good as previous seasons in respect to fliming, and plots, but the acting takes a step up (if that is possible.) Definatly worth buying.

This is by far the best season as of yet. The acting is incredible. There is so much going on with the Feds that it is tough to keep up. Steve Buscemi is a great addition to the cast, but the biggest suprise is which one of the main cast members will call this season their last. Will it be Tony, Christopher, or Adriana. You will have to get the season and watch it!
