  1. Maintains the quality viewers have come to expect.
  2. It's the best series on television, end of story.
  3. The first four installments supplied for review have moments of artsy overindulgence, to be sure, but largely remain true to the show's roots in darkness and absurdity while carving out fresh story arcs that are as compelling as any the writers have ever crafted. It's like peering at a series of train wrecks as rendered by da Vinci.
  4. [It] may be the most creative and richly imagined [season] yet: it begins by going over old ground and yet something new and totally surprising happens.
  5. The thing about "The Sopranos" is that strands of character detail -- Carmela Soprano's fingernails, the way Tony breathes through his nose when he eats -- stay with you long after you've forgotten whose cut of a garbage route has precipitated a beef between which wiseguys.

    This is the best the drama has been in some time.

    may be one of the slowest and most contemplative seasons but it nevertheless packs as powerful an emotional punch as the rest of them.

    I love the sopranos . I am glad he is not on support anymore, the dreaming was getting a tad boring. My only comment is how they have I love the sopranos . I am glad he is not on support anymore, the dreaming was getting a tad boring. My only comment is how they have portrayed nurses is terrible. I wish one of the nurses would get wacked. It is embarrassing to be a nurse and see how they treat family and patients. Expand
