This is about the only TV series in existence that is actually as good as everyone says it is.

Have nearly finished watching season one on DVD, quality.:thumbsu:

Oh my baby you just aint seen nothing yet.... Boom Boom...

The way the show is shown on TV here is hard to follow...what series? are they in order? For not too much cash, got the 1st 6 series on dvd. Working through the episodes one by one. Just finished Ser2. It has to be the only way of doing it.

Glad I never watched them when broadcast, I've been ploughing through each series over the past 6 weeks. Into season 6 now.

In all honestly it's the only way to watch, deny yourself until you can watch everything in a short period of time.

Also try The Wire.... another of HBO's great dramas.

They just showed season 3 on channel nine during the witching hours >,>

Is there a 13th episode, I noticed a s6e13 listed on torrents.

It's meant to start again next week, I think, because Entourage starts on the same day, following the Sopranos.

This is easily one of the best series, maybe the best. I have the unfortunate habit of being quite impatient, so i never wait for the DVD's, which can sometimes make for frustrating viewing if the tv station cuts the season without warning. I like the week-to-week viewing though, it gives me some good tv to look forward to, instead of killing it all in a couple of weeks.

Also...



WHOA MAMA!!

Series 7, the final series, screens on HBO April 8 (US date). Expect it to be available April 9 or 10 our time, and also expect HBO to try and throw a few wrenches into the torrent community, a la the junk packets of data they were throwing out a year or so ago.

Some background on the 7 minute wrap:

So You Think YOU Love ‘The Sopranos’?

This video summary of the first six seasons of “The Sopranos,” by Paul Guylias and Joe Sabia, is an exquisite act of devotion to a television show.
“Sopranos” fans: watch it twice to see if you can find any major plot points that it leaves out.

And it also expresses opinions, makes jokes and is a work of art unto itself!

Mr. Guylias tells me that these seven minutes took 100 hours to make. Note that that time’s in hours. These guys — who are not even 25 yet — had to be reminded to eat.

Matt Weiner, one of the executive producers of “The Sopranos,” says that Mr. Guylias and Mr. Sabia might be the only two viewers to ever really understand the complexities of Billy Leotardo. Not to mention the whole series!

But: What does David Chase, the volatile creator of “The Sopranos,” think of the hacked-up, cut-down version of his masterpiece?

Usually Mr. Chase likes a little more … breathing space … in his television. Will he consider “The Seven-Minute Sopranos” heresy? Stay tuned.

Agree but the only downside is - it is so addictive you end up watching five episodes a a row and going to be at 3AM on a week night

so who's seen the latest episode to air in the states last week? Only eight episodes to go now, it's gonna be weird when this show finally wraps... Though you kinda know that the end is nigh when Tony gets thumped by Bobby Bacala... It's the first time he's ever lost a fight...

Re: The Sopranos **Spoilers**

Had to bump this - watched ep 17 of season 6 tonight and I'm still blown away.

Christopher & AJ - What are you guys doing?


And Tony's outpouring about his genes in Melfi's office - brilliant writing.




And I still think Edie Falco is hot. Meadow is OK too.
