    We get in the mind of a egotistical gangta criminal businessman through his quack to see his con game. The show is winding down into a being regular TV as other shows now...but nothing else compares to it yet

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is probably the most consistently written season of the almost flawless Sopranos. More aspects of Tony's personality and opinions of different ethnic groups are revealed and the protection of his daughter's safety and honor are paramount. The season follows the life of Tony's old boss and best friend Jackie Aprile's son, Jackie Jr. The choices he makes and the fatherly advice he accepts weaves itself into Tony's life. Joe Pantoliano makes his debut as Ralph Cifaretto, a not-so-nice gangster who is a continuing problem for Tony. It may be the most re-watchable season of the most re-watchable series ever made. Episode 11: Pine Barrens remains one of the most celebrated episodes in TV history. And Episode 6: University is one of its most controversial. Every episode is like a movie because the quality of acting and directing, guided by impeccable casting is so masterfully done. Tony runs into a new girlfriend, played by Annabella Sciorra, that turns out being...well...complicated, and reminds him of another family member. The show is so good that I only compare episodes and seasons of The Sopranos to one another. There has never been a show where every episode are this good. Breaking Bad is the only show that is close and even that doesn't have the quality of writing, acting, or directing across the board that The Sopranos does. Standout episodes: Every single one of them. I am being serious. It is that good. Watch The Sopranos and then watch it again 20 times like I have. You pick up something new every time. The Sopranos is The Godfather and Citizen Kane of TV. Expand

    Every season of the sopranos is getting a 10 from me, along with the wire? you ask me why? because i dont have an 11 button. along with the wire, one of the shows that completely revolutionised television. there are others that can be compared, even favourably, and there are forerunners and worthy successors, but these two shows pretty much dropped the bomb on tv. the sopranos is better than the wire for me, but its an apples and oranges thing. this show is endlessly fascinating, incredibly rich, and effortlessly reflective of america itself. the wire further deconstructed the episodic shackles of television, and the idiot drive to pacify an audience, but the sopranos owned the narrative perspective, and the cynical portrait of the larger world it is set in. we got to know the city of omars baltimore real well from watching the wire. but tonys america is the world we are living in.

    Esta tercera temporada baja el ritmo con respecto a su increible segunda temporada, pero aun asi es un aliciente y episodio tras episodio se vuelve cada vez mejor.

    HBO made four of the 13 new episodes available for review. Taken as a whole, they stand as compelling proof that the series' creator and executive producer, David Chase, still is in complete control of the brilliantly constructed crime saga. [4 Mar 2001]

    The show steadfastly avoids romanticizing characters who are repellent, violent and selfish, and it offers a dark, unsparing vision of family life. [4 Mar 2001]

    The [first episode], along with two other episodes sent to critics, dispels any of last year's feeling that The Sopranos was losing a little steam. They demonstrate a constant ability to surprise. [4 Mar 2001]
