4.0 out of 5 stars Another wickedly smart, powerful chapter. & Best acting yet!, May 17, 2003
This review is from: The Sopranos: Season 4 (DVD)
This show has done none of things that TV shows normally do at this point. ie. repeat itself, slip into formula, strain credibility ("jump the shark" as the popular saying goes), etc... I really don't know how Creator David Chase & company keep it up? Talent, creative freedom, and dedication, I suppose.
I didn't find this 4th season to be as emotionally devastating as the previous 3 (though it has its moments), but it is still very strong! The acting is, amazingly, better than it's ever been, and several episodes rank among the best ("The Weight," "Whoever Did This," "Whitecaps"). James Gandolfini gives Tony Soprano some his most compelling scenes yet, and in the x-tra long season finale, Edie Falco simply rises to new heights. Joe Pantoliano as Ralph Cifaretto, who surprised everyone by surviving the 3rd season, is back & provides some welcome wicked humor & hidden depths.
The finale is very satisfying, but several very important plot lines are left unresolved. We can only assume the 5th, and reportedly last, season will resolve them in some fashion. Regardless, the twists and turns involving Ralphie's new race horse Pie O' My, Chris' decent into heroin addiction, Carmela's attraction to one of her husband's deadly henchmen, Johnny Sack's love for his very heavy wife, and Tony's sometimes impulsive womanizing all pay off in wonderful & unexpeted ways.
The 5th season is eagerly awaited, to be sure. If it can match #4, it will be a strong finish indeed for this dark saga.
