Finally, the whole series in its entirety,
This review is from: The Sopranos: The Complete Series Gift Set (DVD)
This 33 disc 10 pound set will contain all 86 original episodes as well as an interview with series creator David Chase conducted by Alec Baldwin and two "Supper With the Sopranos" featurettes that will show cast members sitting down for dinner to discuss their favorite episodes. Other features include:
2 CD soundtracks on 3 discs
16 page episode guide
56-page collector's album
As the Godfather saga was the view of the mafia from the executive suite, this series is a complex tale of the mafia from the working man's point of view. If you've never watched this show, you're in for an extended treat. Yes, there is violence and nudity, but it is never gratuitous and is needed to contrast Tony Soprano, the thinking man's gangster, with the reality of the life he has been born to and, quite frankly, would not ever have left even knowing how so many of his associates have ended up. Tony Soprano can discuss Sun Tzu with his therapist, then beat a man to death with a frying pan in a fit of rage, and while dismembering and disposing of the body with his nephew, take a break, sit down and watch TV while eating peanut butter out of the jar, and give that nephew advice on his upcoming marriage like they had just finished a Sunday afternoon of viewing NFL football. Even Carmella, his wife, when given a chance for a way out, finds that she really prefers life with Tony and the perks that go with it and looking the other way at his indiscretions versus life on her own. If you followed the whole thing, you know how it ends. If you didn't, trust me you've never seen a TV show end like this.
I'm looking forward to seeing all 86 episodes together over a short time period versus the very annoying long time periods between seasons that we had after the first three seasons. Remember, it took eight years (1999-2007) for the show to go from season one to season six.

The series called what seemed to be seasons six and seven all season six, just in part 1 and part 2.

You wrote in your post about The Sopranos "The Complete Series" that there was a 56 page collectors album included with the set. I have also seen this in other reviews of the set but did not see it when I got mine today. Was this a mistake or is it something that was supposed to be there? Thanks for any help, dunk8009

Re: my first post about 56 page collectors album. Think I figured it out myself. The 56 page album is the entire collection as it is
in a book-like album that is probably 56 pages, if I count it. Guess I should have thought of that first but thanks again for your time, DDuncan

I may be crazy but I sweah ta god that there was supposed to be a complete sopranos dvd collection coming out in which all the material that was cut from each episode for time purposes will be reinserted.
Two questions: Is this that set? ... and:
In the individual seasons' box sets there are interviews/ commentaries from some of the actors (nearly eveyone but Jim G.) Have all of these been preserved in this complete set.
Thanks in advance, Mike P.

This is not the big box set. !!
the post talking about all the goodies is not in this set.

THIS IS A HUGE PROBLEM.
Amazon continues to have the two sets comments mixed together and Ive begged them to fix it.
The big set is 10pounds,books booklets and the soundtracks alone are 3 discs.
I am so angry at Amazon.
A man sold me this tiny box set and I oredered it on the other page,but he sent me the wrong set.
I hope this makes sense.

FIX THIS AMAZON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are two sets and the comments are mixed together.
I paid a fortune for the big set and the man sent me the small box set.
