Wow. Just Wow. Having caught the odd episode on Sky i couldnt really understand this show, i mean how does an overweight, unpleasant and not very attractive guy like Tony get so much?? But having been persuaded into getting the full boxset by my brother i was absolutely hooked 10 minutes in. The sopranos basically combines the family drama elements that we all love to watch with the fascinating world of organised crime, dealing with issues such as family values, loyalty, friendship, loss, and stereotyping of the Italian American with perfectly balanced elements of drama suspense and a dash of humour. It is called by many the greatest tv show ever, and it definately is near the top of HBO's long list of brilliant drama series. I cant recall a series in which i was more immersed and cared so much about the characters. As someone who love getting their teeth into a good boxset this is definately one of my favourites, and i found myself stopping watching a Dexter season finale for a few weeks to keep watching this. Brilliant, and dont be put of with the mafia elements of this series, there is so much there for everyone, no matter what you previously thought made a good show
Summary: essential, at least give it a go, you wont regret it
