For Tony Soprano, there's no such thing as business as usual. Balancing the demands of his immediate family - wife Carmel, daughter Meadow and son Anthony Jr. - witht the demands of his other family - Paulie Walnuts, Silvio Dante and Big Pussy Bompensiero - means walking a tightrope no self-respecting mobster should have to walk. With his mother and uncle plotting against him, his older sister Janice wreaking her own special kind of havoc, and the very real threat that one of his closest allies is wired by the F.B.I, Tony needs the support of his psychiatrist Dr. Melfi more than ever.]]>

"The Sopranos: The Complete Second Season" has to be my favorite season. As much as I love the first one, this was when things were really funny, intense, dramatic and involving. The season doesn't let us down when it comes to Tony having more problems than ever before. Both in his Mafia Family and his immediate family, Tony can never get a break. His wife gives him grief while his kids keep doing things that upset him. And don't get me started on his ill mother and self-centered sister. Life isn't much better in his Mafia Family when the brother of Jackie is released from prison and is giving Tony a hard time both personally and professionally. Not to mention that his long time friend, Big P. comes back from a long hiatus when he was first suspected of turning rat to the Feds. All of this leads to one incredible and unpredictable season that showcases the show like none other.
For me, this was the most entertaining season of them all. I loved the characters, the constantly changing storylines, and the personal and business life of Tony Soprano, which is superbly balanced in this season. There's still the much appreciated humor in these episodes that were found lacking in the next two seasons. It doesn't feel like a soap opera, but a more enhanced look into the Mafia world.Read more ›
O.K., the overall feel of the sophomore season isn't as lighthearted as the first--should it be? There is much that Sopranos creator David Chase has to say about life in general. And you may find that you have more in common with the mobbed-up characters than you think. It's an interesting, edgy, wicked, funny and frightening ride that hasn't lost it's intelligent touch. The production of The Sopranos in subsequent seasons has grown (along with the size of its viewership), and the writing has been progressively more mature, dark and realistic. Yet, it's still fun to watch, even with the darker plotlines.
If you've never seen an episode of The Sopranos, please do. WARNING: Once you do, you'll probably fork over the money to buy both seasons of the series. It's THAT addictive. The episodes are more rewarding upon repeated viewings.
Almost none of the characters are clear-cut, making them very believable. The acting is excellent and the script is fantastic, with the slight exception of a somewhat over-contradictory role written for a priest. Tension and distrust seem to be the main constants in Tony Soprano's life. You can decide if the worst thing in his life is his mother and uncle, or his crew and the Feds...or, maybe, himself. There is less screen time given to certain key "family" members in this series but it does not lessen their impact on the storyline and the addition of a few "blows-ins" adds to the tension.
If you enjoy excellent acting, won't hate yourself for actually liking some things about the ruthless main protagonist, and can cope with occasional graphic violence then this set of shows is absolutely worth watching.
