Product Description

Sopranos, The: The Complete Third Season (DVD)

Some suburban households have two cars. Some have two houses. But Tony Soprano has two families. This could be why the FBI is going to such lengths to wiretap his home. Why the son of his dear late friend Jackie Aprile is causing him such agita. Why a Russian housekeeper is searching for her missing leg. Why his son is vandalizing school property and his daughter is getting her heart broken. Why his wife Carmela is both consulting a psychiatrist and confessing to a priest. And it's also why Tony Soprano is still seeing Dr. Melfi for his anxiety attacks. It isn't easy heading-up the mob in New Jersey. But that's what puts dinner on the table for the two families of Tony Soprano.

"So," Tony Soprano asks analyst Dr. Melfi in the wake of not-so-dearly-departed Livia's death, "we're probably done here, right?" Sorry, Tone, not by a long shot. Unresolved mother issues are the least of the Family man's troubles in the brutal and controversial third season of The Sopranos. Ranked by TV Guide among the top five greatest series ever, The Sopranos justified its eleven-month hiatus with some of its best, and most hotly debated, episodes that continue the saga of the New Jersey mob boss juggling the pressures of his often intersecting personal and professional lives. The third season garnered 22 Emmy nominations, earning Lead Actor and Actress honors for James Gandolfini and Edie Falco for their now-signature roles as Tony and his increasingly conflicted wife, Carmela.

The Sopranos continued to upend convention and defy audience expectations with a deliberately paced, calm-before-the-storm season opener that revolves around the FBI's attempts to bug the Soprano household, and a season finale that (for some) frustratingly leaves several plot lines unresolved. The second episode, "Proshai, Livushka," confronts the death of the venerable Nancy Marchand, who capped her career with perhaps her greatest role as malignant matriarch Livia. A jarring scene between Tony and Livia that uses pre-existing footage is a distraction, but Carmela's unsparing smackdown of Livia at the wake redeems the episode. "Employee of the Month," in which Dr. Melfi is raped and considers whether to exact revenge by telling Tony of her attack, earned Emmys for its writers, and is perhaps Emmy nominee Lorraine Bracco's finest hour. The darkly comic "Pine Barrens"--another memorable episode, directed by Steve Buscemi--strands Paulie (Tony Sirico) and Christopher (Michael Imperioli) in the forest with a runaway corpse. Other story arcs concern the rise of the seriously unstable Ralph Cifaretto (Joe Pantoliano) and Tony's affair with "full-blown loop-de-loo" Gloria (Emmy nominee Annabella Sciorra). Plus, there is Tony's estrangement from daughter Meadow (Jamie Lynn Sigler), his wayward delinquent son Anthony, Jr. (Robert Iler), Carmela's crisis of conscience, bad seed Jackie Jr., and the FBI--which, as the season ends, assigns an undercover agent to befriend an unwitting figure in the Soprano family's orbit. Stay tuned for season four. --Donald Liebenson

Format: DVD
The third series of 'The Sopranos' consolidates the brilliance of the first two, rather than taking it in any radically new directions. The characters, their relationships and their environment are so strong; the dramatic irony between our sympathy with and enjoyment of these people, and our knowledge of their brutal and unhypocritically presented crimes, is so complex, that any blatant originality merely for the sake of it would be a betrayal.
But, because the central components are so strong, there is plenty of room for play - in the way narratives are set up to encourage then defy expectations; in the interplay with canonical gangster texts, especially 'The Godfather'; in the consistently creative use of music - for mood and to emphasise character, yes, but also to create ironic distance, to add montages of 'commentary' over the stories, to connect apparently disparate scenes, to add a depth of texture. Because it is in texture that 'The Sopranos' has really developed - the recklessly confident film-making; the layered scripts; the rich dialogue; and the knowing acting combine to create programmes of truly, yes, operatic density.
There are a number of new plot developments in this series - Meadow goes to Columbia University; the FBI (in a supremely funny handful of episodes) attempt to bug the Sopranos; the Russian mafia grow in menacing importance; Janice takes up with a Christian musician; Anthony Jr.

Format: DVD
If you are looking at this review, you probably already have the first and second season. All I can tell you is that the third season is as good, if not better, than the first and second. This is truly one of the best series ever to have graced the television screen. Leave it to HBO to have come up with such an engaging, well-written, well-acted, and totally addictive series.
There are some major plot developments this season. Starting off slowly, the first episode chronicles the synchronized, often comical efforts of the FBI, which is trying to get an electronic surveillance bug in place in the Soprano's household. The season then heats up considerably from thereon.
Livia Soprano, Tony's wicked mother and a canker in her children's lives, dies, bringing daughter Janice back from where she had fled, after she had bumped off her manic boyfriend, Richie Aprile, last season. Janice returns with a narcoleptic, musician boyfriend who is the antithesis of Richie. As always, Janice likes to stir up trouble, and her mother Livia's wake and funeral services are fertile country for her new machinations and self-importance. When she tries to stir up trouble with Livia's one legged, Russian caregiver, which leaves the caregiver searching for her missing prosthetic leg, however, Janice soon discovers that she has gone too far, and her chickens come home to roost with a vengeance.
Meadow, the Soprano's daughter and eldest child, a college student at Ivy League Columbia University, gets a new boyfriend, Noah Tannenbaum. He is handsome, intelligent, and articulate, and Tony hates him on the spot for reasons the viewer will quickly discern, as Tony pulls no punches with Noah. This will create a certain amount of tension between father and daughter, and an estrangement ensues.

21 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Michael Whalen on May 26, 2002
Format: DVD
This season really focuses on Tony & Carmela's role as parents. The gangster plotlines take a backseat to Mr. & Mrs. Soprano's slow awareness that the future they hoped to provide for their children is something of a delusion.
Story lines move in unexpected ways, and some episodes really need to be viewed more than once in order to fully comprehend (Univesity, Fortunate Son). There are some great new characters (Gloria Trillo, Ralph Cifaretto, & Burt Young as a mean old brute, chain-smoking his way through lung cancer), but the main characters have new life breathed into them. Paulie Walnuts, always great comic relief, begins to show a darker side. And Christopher, now a Made Man, has grown into a genuine threat.
By the season finale the characters have evolved in ways that leave them at odds in ways they've never been before.
This is my favorite season yet. Very rich, thought provoking, and in the end pretty frightening. My fav. episodes: Army of One (the finale), Pine Barrens (Tony needs to keep an eye on those 2!), & Employee of the Month.

Format: DVD
If you want a summary of the plot, read the other reviews, this is a little thought peice on the reasons why viewers have such a "mo fo" (Tonese for "amour fou") relationship with this series.
First of all, I agree that this season carried on with the best parts of the first two seasons, but its darker and maybe even wearier in tone than the last two. This is (in my humble opinion) one of the great things about this series as TV drama: the characters are on long enough temporal arcs that they can undergo serious changes in character and temprament in a thoroughly convincingly human way. And it is to the writers' directors' and actors lasting credit that they make it convincing, engaging and utterly compelling. This is ensemble dramatic work at its absolute best.
One example is Tony himself. In the first two seasons you see his charismatic side at work brilliantly. He's on his way up and his brutality and ambition are juxtaposed against his native intelligence and charm in a thoroughly captivating manner.
By the third season, the viewer can sense Tone's increasing sense of being burdened by his past actions. He has gained weight, and is becoming more and more irascible, even as the immediate problems in his life (his mother and the loose cannon Richie Aprile) meet their appropriate fates.
Rather than conflicts between characters (though there is plenty of that, with the grating Ralfie and the N-Syncly boorish Jackie Jr. as major examples), it is really Big Pussy's betrayal and the Family's response to it that stands like a looming ghost over Tony, Paulie and Silvio. Try as they might in their various ways to bluff and bluster their way past what has happened, its clear that that whole incident has pulled each of these men closer to a psychological abyss.
