Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
With its strong characters and rat-a-tat repartee, The Sopranos has achieved critical acclaim and a cult status among its millions of fans. This volume collects scripts from six premier episodes from the show's first three seasons. Pick your favorite: Was it Chris and Paulie's misadventures in the Pine Barrens or Tony's duck-obsessed session with his shrink?
Publishers Weekly
For rabid Sopranos fans and would-be screenwriters, this is a no-brainer-but even for the rest of the mildly interested public, these scripts make worthwhile reading. Series creator Chase's introduction describes the writing process and illuminates some of the themes present in each season. The pilot episode (which opens in Dr. Melfi's waiting room); "College," in which Tony and Meadow visit Bates College and mayhem ensues; "The Happy Wanderer"in which "Parvati" (Janice) sows seeds of serious family discontent; "The Knight in White Satin Armor" which has Richie getting offed in an unexpected manner; and "Pine Barrens," in which a "package" awaiting burial hits Christopher with a shovel and disappears, are all featured within. Individual authors and directors are credited script by script, and the lists of casts and settings makes this book workable for productions, though some scenes are omitted. One can imagine thousands of amateur productions mounted in improvised Ba-Da-Bing!s around the country; expect cigar sales to rise accordingly. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

    The Best Scripts from the Most Influential Series of Television's Renaissance Age

    The influence of this series in completely elevating the television medium to the level of cinema cannot be underestimated. This collection of teleplays by David Chase and his staff remains as rich as a great novel. The words jump off the page and the characterizations are vivid.
    This is an excellent read.

    David Chase, you are still a genius, and your achievement stands the test of time.

    Just wish there was a second Volume now that the series has completed its run.
