In January I went to NYC for the first time (from the UK), and although I expected this to be gimmicky, it was actually awesome. I thought I would post this as I really recommend it for anyone going to NY.
There are several guides but ours was an actor who had featured in several episodes. His knowledge was fantastic. The tour lasts from around 10am to 2pm which seems like a long time but it flies past. You will do a bus tour of lots of small shooting locations, and you will also see some big sights, like The Bada Bing, Pizzaland, The church, Satriales, Holstens and more. The highlights of the tour for me were visiting the Bing (called Satin Dolls IRL) and getting a beer there, where its pretty much exactly the same as it appears in the show. Also the visit to Holstens where you can eat the famous onion rings and see 'that' booth which is cordoned off from regular customers.
The guide had a lot of extra info on things to do with casting, relationships between actors, strange shooting... keep reading on reddit ➡
Okay, so to begin with I'm 19 and have been told repeatedly by family since I was young that the Sopranos is the best show of all time. I was told that the Sopranos is to television as the Beatles are to music.
As fate would have it, my house acquired the complete boxset on Blu-ray just prior to the self-isolation restrictions, and with a lot of time to kill, my Dad and I decided to watch it through. Fast forward three months of watching it religiously each evening and it's safe to say that nothing else occupys my thoughts.
I was blown away by the power of James Gandalfini on screen and his sheer presence. The music was so well chosen, the casting couldn't have been better and the ending is both the perfect and most satisfying ending, whilst leaving me restless and itching to watch it again.
It's also fantastically quotable, and has an incredible balance of incredibly sinister story telling and brilliantly funny or heart warming moments.
If you haven't watched it, do. That's it. W... keep reading on reddit ➡
So, yes, it took me 20 years but I'm watching the show! I love it, it's good tv. Anyway, I had no idea how heavily the show is based and filmed right here in my hometown of Newark and the surrounding areas. It's been a real treat to see all these places I've walked, driven and passed through for most of my life right there on tv. It's a bit unreal. I always let a quick laugh when i recognize a new scene. You even see a small part of my house in the flashback scene where Tony is playing baseball with his uncle out on the street. You won't believe my excitement when I realized "that's my house!!"
I'm incredibly impressed by how dedicated the show is at maintaining accuracy. Whenever a street name or town is mentioned on the show, it's been accurate. I know it's a small thing but it's nice they didn't cut any corners and just make up names or screw up the geography. It adds a completely new layer of immersion.
After a 10-year-break I decided to do another rewatch during quarantine. First of all: best idea ever.
One thing that I never really paid attention to is the clothes. They're amazing. When I watched it back then I only saw a lot of loud shirts. I remember reading somehwere that the outfit department was devastated when Tony ruined his Gucci loafers walking at the beach in Naples with that Italian broad. Maybe it was in the DVD extras?
Rewatching it now I see a lot of Versace, some Canali and Fila and Reebok track suits too. I especially liked that one red suit Christopher wears when going with Adrianna to the city to meet his cousin and his fiancé or a lot of the stuff Tony wears. Get outta here with that Ralph Lauren shit from Ralphie tho
What are some other brands you guys spotted maybe I can get Patsy's guy to update my wardrobe.
I'm in my 30's, my Dad was born just a couple years before Gandolfini. My Dad is like Gary Cooper - the strong, silent type. My Dad and I have had a lot of problems over the years, but we've always had The Sopranos. He let me start watching it when I was way too young for it, but it was our little secret from my Mom. Was it a great parenting decision? Who knows.
We've had a lot of times over the years where we couldn't communicate about anything, but we could always at least say "Hey, remember when Paulie & Christopher brained the waiter in the parking lot?" (And yes, I know 'remember when' is the lowest form of conversation) and then we could at least talk about that, or the time Tony killed Ralphie, or Chris' intervention, or any other number of things from the show. We weren't necessarily talking about the things we NEEDED to talk about, but at least we were talking.
It's probably fucked up that The Sopranos, a show about a highly dysfunctional family, is one of the few thin... keep reading on reddit ➡
Who is the hottest / most handsome Guy ?
I once went to a talk by a DEA Agent who said that they rarely ever use undercover agents (ALA Donnie Brasco). He said that criminal organizations are too insular and almost never trust newcomers unless they are throughly vouched for. Plus, you have to create elaborate backstories for them that can easily be checked.
When you think about it, this is really illustrated in The Sopranos. They are all each other's second cousins, related by marriage or "Godfathers" to each other. At the very least, they would have to be from North Jersey. How could someone build up a false background? That is why targeting Adriana was the best bet. They would be less likely to suspect her and she would be less likely to be on guard.
They just said this in the last podcast ep.
I hope it becomes a valuable ep where we get to know shit we didn't know before and not a 1 hour long ep about his cameo in Commendatori
In popular media there is often a tendency to remember when and romanticize old school criminals. There are so many films and TV shows made about old school gangsters that portrays them as romantic heroes that it'd be impossible to list them all. Even The Wire is guilty of this, with characters like Stringer portrayed as better than Marlo despite the fact he was committed the same crimes if he felt threatened. The characters in the Sopranos are no different. In the first season, Tony laments that men aren't strong and silent like they were when he was growing up.
David Chase takes that concept and gives it a brogan adjustment to reveal that it's one of the biggest pieces of BS ever concocted in popular culture. From season 2 onwards, Tony gets the opportunity to work with the old school and guess what? They're the biggest threats to his life and work that he experiences over the course of the show.

The Peter Principle postulates that people in an organization keep getting promoted until they reach a level that they are unable to perform at satisfactorily. At that point, they are promoted no more. Therefore, most people in an organization are one level too high.
This is illustrated well in The Sopranos:
Johnny Sac: When he was #2, he was calm and business-like. When he was boss, he was emotional and erratic.
Tony- While good leader in some ways, his personal demons always hurt his business decisions. He killed a top owner over a horse, let his guilt over his cousin cloud his judgment, and belt whipped a valuable political contact over a Russian Gumar. Tony needed to be a Captain or maybe an Underboss under someone he respects, like Jackie.
Christopher- A solid enforcer and good to have in a fight, but his impulsivness and addiction means he would not be a good Captain.
Phil- Like Christopher, a loyal soldier, but, like Tony, too hung up on emotional shit. He needs to... keep reading on reddit ➡
Who is the hottest / most attractive Girl?
Thought a couple of you guys would dig it. It's not "perfect," but took about 6 months to write.
For me my go to when I don't have time to get into a full rewatch but just want to check out one episode is Whitecaps. It's right in the middle of the series and is a real tear jerker, though it may make some redditors think less of me as a man to admit that. I'm guessing the most popular answer will be Pine Barrens.
This is CLEARLY the best show of all time in terms of being able to re consume through clips, is it not?
i can't think of another show even close in terms of my ability to go to youtube and watch 2-5 minute chunks for hours on end and it never gets old. Anyone got the bawls to disagree?
Back in Season 1 when Paulie Walnuts is delivering the TV to Coach Hauser. Hauser loses his cool and starts coming at Paulie, eventually going: “Listen Guido-“ before Paulie cuts him off with “My name is Clarence.”
Holy shit I still laugh when I think about that shit.
EDIT: #2 is definitely: “Hesh is the worlds sweetest guy, but I’ve heard his opinions on giving back pieces of Israel, I can only imagine what he’s gotta say about this shit.”
If a made man was a closet homosexual, would the mafia look down upon this and kill him? How seriously would they take this? I have no problem with anyone no matter what their sexual orientation but I'm wondering how the mob would view this?
Mine goes like this:
Tony sees Uncle Junior for probably the last time in the mental institution and he doesn’t remember who Tony is.
Adriana realizing that she’s being driven to her death.
Christopher breaking down to Tony in his basement when he confesses that Adriana is an informant.
Tony and Carmela’s confrontational breakdown in Season 4 Episode 13
Tony says to Christopher: “If you don’t love me anymore, that’s fine, but you will respect me.”
One of them for me is Chris in the The Ride, enjoying his heroin trip at the Feast while we listen to Fred Neil sing his original version of The Dolphins, which I got to know first from Richie Havens. It's an amazing song, and it captures perfectly the stillness and calm that can sometimes come when we experiment with a substance that gets us high. I'm not condoning heroin, but it's a great moment in the life of the series.

I've rewatched it like 20 times or so- and I just caught this interaction between Tony and Carmela (it was in reference to Janice).
Carmela: ...If you want her to leave, then you're going to have to tell her, because, I'm not. It's not Christian.
Tony: You see, this shit works out. She's a Buddhist.
I don't know how I missed that--

I am an 18 year old male and my mom recommended I watch the sopranos 3 years ago, I watched it and thought to myself, "television doesn't get any better than this". I then watched Boardwalk Empire, again an appealing perfectly crafted drama (besides the last season). But now I started The Wire in quarantine and had the greatest time watching it. I have never been affected or praised a show this much in my entire life. Honestly I am sad because television doesn't get any better than The Sopranos and The Wire. I have tried to introduce friends to The Wire and everyone gets bored of it too fast. I am shocked and honestly disgusted that people can call all of these dog shit shows that are on in this day and age "Good television" but call The Wire "boring". Anyway, I have noticed a pattern to both The Wire and Sopranos that I wanted to see if this was just me noticing this. They both have that perfect gritty frame and quality of early 2000's television, the music they use to convey messages... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve said my piece.
I'm sure you're all familiar with 'product placement'. The brand names of a product prominently featured in a TV show or film in which the Company actually pays for featuring their product, as if it's an ad.
One I think is very big is "PHILIPS" TV's. You can see the Philips logo on the front of the TV's in many seasons and in different households (Junior, Tony, etc.). The Philips logo looks abnormally large on the TV compared to other TV brands, too. That had to be intentional.
Any other examples?
Steve and Michael are sponsored by a VPN and a part of the advertisement was examples of using a VPN. Michael was being respectful, giving real life examples of why you would need one while Steve says it’s a tool to cheat on your wife or to secretly watch porn.
“If you want to cheat on your wife, get private internet access!”
I am only on the first episode and as soon as Imperioli said I play Christopher Moltisanti on Sopranos, I got chills. I haven’t rewatched in a while, 5 years or so. Excited to rewatch with the podcast.

Never has there been a show that so exquisitely blends these two styles. The show is undoubtedly a drama, and not just because of the mafia. But the characters really change. They really go through personal and familial crises. And in real ways that are aside from just “being in the mafia.” But peppered all throughout the show are hilarious, laugh out loud scenarios and lines. Some that are meant to be funny. Most that’s not. (Meaning, in the show the characters aren’t making jokes, but obviously the filmmakers knew it was funny). Anyway, I’m currently watching the show all the way through for perhaps the 4th or 5th time and I thought I’d write about it. Also, this is of course an assessment about English speaking programming. Feel free to chime in about other shows (in any language) that effortless go between these two worlds. (Six Feet Under is probably my favorite show ever, and is both dramatic and funny, but not in the same way)
During quarantine, I recently rewatched The Sopranos and since yesterday was the 13 year anniversary of the series finale, I decided to make a top 10 episodes (in my opinion) ranking.
Marco Polo S5 Ep 8 (Hughs “surprise party”;Tony and Carmela show signs of getting back together)
Boca S1 Ep 9 (Meadows soccer coach abruptly accepts a job offer and the guys try to persuade him to stay; Tony makes fun of Uncle June about one of his biggest insecurities)
The Sopranos or Pilot S1 Ep 1 (The episode that got it all started. Tony sees Melfi for the first time to discuss his panic attacks, we see the first hit of the series when Christopher shoots Emil in the back of the head)
Made in America S6 Ep 21 (The infamous and iconic cut to black; Tony and the crew make a big move in the war with New York resulting in the shows best hit)

I just semi binge watched Season 1 in three days. And now this... gah. What timing!
Whether it is the family eating at the table, at Arthur’s restaurant, eating alone. The amount of Italian food shown and eaten on camera is just insane now that I think about it.
Honestly, I go to YouTube Soprano videos just for the comments they never get old and everyone just gets It! And now I’m a part of this group and can literally spend 20 years in the fucking can reading all this stuff.
I just finished watching the series for the 4th time, and I noticed more and more just how many ambiguous, unsolved moments there are in the series. They're some of my favorite moments to think about, and I love how people can't really agree on any answers after all this time.
Here is a list of them off the top of my head:
- Was Livia actually smiling on that hospital bed? When did her lucidness truly go? Was she faking it when she didn't recognize Meadow, only to succumb to dementia later on?
- Was Jimmy really the rat? Or was Tony just too blinded by his denial? Everything seems to point towards him being a rat, but the lack of any hard evidence leaves this one up in the air.
- Did she even really exist? At that point, Tony and the others could not trust anything he said. So his stories could've been totally true, only to be dismissed as yet another lie.
- How did that psychic know about Paulie's past? Most of what he says is general psychic trickery, but he manages to name... keep reading on reddit ➡
What a ride. I decided to start watching it two weeks ago, on a whim. Should have watched it years ago. I also saw the 20th anniversary of The Sopranos,that had some of the cast in it. I felt like crying. I now understand why people love this show so much, last time I felt like this was after watching Breaking Bad.
Well I guess I just wanted to express my joy and sadness somewhere, so that's pretty much it. Rest in peace James Gandolfini, a wonderful actor and a wonderful human being.
The accuracy of the Jersey Italian accent and slang is really impressive. My favorite is Tony's "Awright".
Some people should respond to those posts as Tony. And other people I could mention just want to wack somebody, anybody.
Long before Carmine said it, or even was created as a character, Chase was showing these guys to be far removed from the glamorous gangsters of old, even removed from the glitzy palace of Paul Castellano or the flash of John Gotti.
-Tony has his two most trusted guys spend their time looking for a stolen teacher's car when they could be out actually earning
-Tony lives in a massive, but ultimately extremely gaudy house, nuevo riche in style - much like the gold gilding of Trump's houses, a sign of fake wealth. Far removed from Castellano's White House or Vito Corleone's majestic compound.
-Tony's favorite eating spot, Vesuvio (both versions) seems to be only maybe a flight above say, an Olive Garden. It's your average run of the mill Italian food joint that's all over NJ and NY. Compare it to Da Giovanni we see later in the show, or Artie's grandfathers' rustic and genuinely Italian recipes that 'people don't like' we see him cook at the end of his arc.

First time watcher here. I love the show, it's so incredibly good. But damn it can be frustrating to watch. I've been binging for a couple months now and I am ALMOST through season 6. I almost can't take it anymore. Everyone and everything is just so shitty all the time.
Just wanted to share my thoughts, none of my friends have seen the show so I have nobody that can relate lol
Edit: Just to be clear, I am not criticizing the show. It is frustrating because it's executed so damn well. You feel for the characters. With everything constantly going to shit it gets frustrating to watch at times. Don't take this too seriously tho I'm still having a good time watching it, but it can kinda get to me if you know what I mean
this is a show full of bad people doing bad things, but I don’t mean the most evil or violent. I just mean a character that has no redeeming qualities.
I think Jackie Aprile Jr. might be the worst...Janice Soprano is up there.
I listened to it. It's not that bad. I'm highly fuckin outraged!!!
Now obviously most people on this subreddit will agree with me. However I’m so tired of people saying Twin Peaks is not up there with The Sopranos, The Wire and Breaking Bad.
Yes, Twin Peaks had a couple episodes in season 2 with boring plotlines (the Evelyn-James storyline being most notorious) but still there's enough interesting stuff happening. Jean Renault conspiring with Hank Jennings (Michael Parks plays Twin Peaks best villain along with Kenneth Welsh as Windom Earle), Ben getting a nervous breakdown and acting out the confederate side of the Civil War. Civil War Ben was necessary for him to become a better person, which is proven by the benefit for the little pine weasel (granted it was still opportunistic and a way to get back at Catherine). But Benjamin Horne truly does make a change at the end of season 2, and that development is consolidated in season 3 in his interactions with Beverly.

From episode 6 of Talking Sopranos, David Chase wrote some new Coronavirus themed lines for some of the characters:
Paulie Walnuts: Eh, people call me a germaphobe. big laugh. Now all I gotta say is, see motherfuckers? And I knew some fucking thing like this was gonna happen. I saw the holy mother at Badda Bing.
Tony Soprano: Sports betting? Gone with the wind. Along with professional sports. Me and my friends are dying over here. Y'know the president might have a point. Let's get business, manufacturing, going again. By Easter, may day, whateverthefuck.
Meadow Soprano: I should have gone to medical school, I feel so bad about my decision.
Carmella Soprano: I'm so glad my daughter didn't go to medical school. Imagine where she'd be by now.

I really enjoy listening to Talking Sopranos and understand that the actors haven't watched the episodes as frequently as most folks here. But I was surprised that in the episode with Michael Rispoli that both Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa didn't know until their rewatch for this podcast that Jackie and Ritchie were brothers. Especially with Christopher's line to Ritchie about Jackie being a god outside the pork store.
The higher ups in the family tended to have no show jobs, and the soldiers typically had no work jobs where they sat around at the job site. Obviously the guys with no works weren’t doing construction, but it didn’t really seem like they were doing anything for the family either. They didn’t interact with the actual construction workers unless the construction workers talked to them first, and they wouldn’t have needed to be there all day to steal from the site. It also couldn’t have looked good having a bunch of goombah guys sitting around in lawn chairs and beating construction workers up occasionally, especially if any flag salutin’ mothafuckers came around. When you throw in the fact that there were roving gangs of black guys who went so far as to bottle Little Paulie, it doesn’t really make sense for anybody from the family to even have been there in the first place.
If the issue in my inability to play high notes is in my mouth (which I’m pretty sure it is), how do I work up to playing the high notes well, or even at all? I can play high D and D# just fine but once I hit the high E key I can’t play. I don’t think it’s an instrument problem since I just bought it a couple months ago, Kinstar brand.
Any help is appreciated. I have all the time in the world so I bet I could figure it out before music school this fall.
After trying and failing to get him into Breaking Bad and The Wire (both of which I love), something about Tony and the Gang has really resonated with him, and he’s completely locked in every time we watch an episode. It’s been a great way to pass this quarantine shit, and it’s been fun to re-experience the story from the beginning again. ( although idk how you guys have made it through six or seven rewatches of this shit). Kudos David Chase.
That being said, do you guys have any special memories watching the Sopranos with your family?
Can be either intentional or unintentional.
Bonus points for evidence!
So I’m a huge gun guy, I moved to the US from Italy to enjoy my hobby. Anyways the sopranos has an ok depiction of guns (the best is when philly Parisi gets whacked, the guy shooting him winces in pain because he’s shooting an unsuppressed gun in an enclosed area) but there are some issues as well, Jackie Jr death is one of the biggest ones, the prop guy must have been sick that day because the gun used was obviously a flash paper gun. Throughout the show Paulie and Sil sometimes use suppressors, they aren’t as quiet as that IRL unless you’re shootings a subsonic 22lr which is not the caliber they’re using. Something cool I noticed is that the AK47 that tony and Carm keep in their kitchen is actually a pre ban Norinco 84s chambered in .223 Remington/ 5.56x45mm (today these rifles go for about $1000-$1500) which is a pretty rare rifle.

I've been wanting to make this post for a while, because I went into my first re-watch of the show thinking about the major theme of people trying to escape their current lives, and their failure to do so.
The reason this interested me was because I loved Christopher's arc (or lack thereof). A writer that I absolutely love, Racine, regularly has the theme of failure to escape in his works. In his play Phedre the first line, spoken by Hippolyte (Hippolytus) is about him leaving, and he says "je pars", meaning "I'm leaving". He only manages to leave at the end of the play, and it kills him. The characters are bound to the stage.
Sorry to sidetrack, but I love Racine. This is relevant to The Sopranos because I see it as having the exact same scene. I mentioned Christopher: from the eight episode of the first season (Tennessee Moltisanti) he wants to change his occupation; to leave the mob life, you could put it. The shot of him reentering the house is powerful: he can... keep reading on reddit ➡
