The death of Carmine, family crime boss of New York, sets up the organizational tug of war that operates through the fifth season. The brutal push and shove between Little Carmine and Johnny Sack provides the dramatic backdrop as tensions mount between the families. Through it all, Tony tries to maintain neutrality but finds himself, as usual, in the thick of things.

On the home front there are several touching and poignant moment between our lovable thug, Tony, and his long-suffering wife, Carmella. Slowly and sweetly, they inch toward each other; each painfully aware of the sensitive issues and the deep divide which separate them. In a grimly amusing scene, Tony may have found Carmella's price.

Without question, this is Gandolfini's finest hour. He gives a performance which portrays not only the ruthlessness and thuggery of Tony Soprano but also the maturity, thoughtfulness, humor and depth of a caring husband father. No humanitarian awards just yet, though, this is brutal gangsterism and intimidation of innocents, after all. Carmella, Christopher, and Adriana also deliver their very best performances to date. Well-deserving of their awards and recognition.

Adriana's episode commentary in bonus features is worth listening to.

At the end of season 5 of The Sopranos, when the bear himself wanders out of the woods and back into his house, you realize you've seen a season of television that should be unheard of. It had the action and violence to get the fans back who went wayward in season 4, sure, but what it REALLY has is the most astonishing depth of characters ever put on the small screen. The escalation of Adriana's story - from nearly weeping a confession in "The Rat Pack," to her suspicious car crash with Tony in "Irregular Around the Margins," to the unforgettable death that makes "Long Term Parking" one of the most unshakeable Sopranos hours ever proves that this show is nothing but a master at plotting - and at humanity. Drea de Mateo is so unforgettable, she should be the true hero of the season, but I'm afraid James Gandolfini has gone farther this season than in all the previous four combined. His scenes with Dr. Melfi have a renewed air of importance, and as the guilt over Tony B grows and grows, we're left with some of the most staggering truths about him we've yet to encounter. And the rest of the cast are no slouches either - Meadow's quiet manipulation of Finn to get her to propose to him ("Unidentified Black Males"), Carmela's moving affair/screw up ("Sentimental Education"), Christopher's bizarre collision of recovery and mobsterdom ("In Camelot"), Johnny Sack's arrogant takeover of the New York throne ("Where's Johnny), Junior's confrontation of strokes and death ("Where's Johnny"/"In Camelot"). And that dream? It all adds up to make season 5 the proof that the Sopranos seems to have rewritten all the rules for the small screen, and still knows how to break a few more. In short: 13 episodes of one masterpiece.

During a remarkable Season 5, we witness the complete breakdown of relationships among Tony Soprano's two families. We begin with a rudderless and lonely Tony facing his past demons, first with having to live inside the birthplace of all his inner termoil, his mother's house. He then has to confront the his past shortcomings as a member of his business orginizations. Whether it is the demise of a betraying lover, a bloody power struggle in NY, or the humbling return to a loveless marriage, Season 5 has left us with certain knowledge that no relationship on any level has been left intact and that Season 6 will prove to be a scramble to survive.

Don't listen to John Q. Public, who probably has never given the show a chance. It is completely asanine to give this DVD a bad review because you don't like the mob lifestyle, or think it's innappropriate to "glorify" it. Bottom line - this show has been the best television has to offer for the past five years. It has amazing character arcs, plots and dialogue, ignoring most TV conventions to bring you the most groundbreaking series in recent memory. Even after watching each episode five or six times, I can't help but sit back and smile to myself, amazed at how well done and complex each show is. Each episode usually has an underlining theme, which you may only notice at a base level at first, but subsequent viewings will completely surprise you at well thought-out and deeply interwoven these themes are. It's something straight out of classic cinema, and it's a beautiful thing.

Just another solid hit (season) from the Sopranos! 5th season is just as original as previous seasons! Buscemi makes the show so much fresher as he plays cousin Tony who tries to go straight but ends up going back into the family business. Cousin Tony causes big problems for the boss (Tony Soprano) and he hits a dilemma on choosing his blood or his other family. Very interesting twists and turns here that and the outcomes were totally unexpected. Gandolfini plays his role perfectly with sides of wit, humor and all seriousness. The supporting cast is the best emsembled in television history. Do not miss if you are a Sopranos fan. If you just found about this great show, I recommend you watch all the previous seasons first then watch this.

This is the only show I am eagerly anticipating to return every season and I have no patience for it.
