This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Season 3 of The Sopranos fails to take it out of the rutt that its been stuck in since season 2. The show really lacks that hard hitting story telling that the first season had. While the acting in the show is great, It really has nothing else going for it at this point.
This season was pretty much a build up season to kill Jackie Jr (much like they did Big Pus in season 2 when they found out he was a rat and they killed him off in the season finale). The show repeats all that happened in the previous seasons (Tony cheating on his wife, Junior dealing with legal problems and stomach cancer, AJ acting up, Meadow's failed relationships) Its all the same stuff just re-told.
The show also lacks a good villian and ,imo, that its the huge downfall of the show. You are constantly re-told the same stories over and over again with different variations but the show really lacks that antagonist that could cause trouble for Tony. I thought that it would be Ralph ,who isnt that bad of a character and imo would be a great villian if they had written him that way, but in the end it turned out it wasnt.
While the show is slightly better then the previous season, The Sopranos has failed to deliver once again.… Expand
